Re: bleeding brakes. What worked for me.

I'm with cas3.... never a problem. 'Course, I stack the procedure in my favor. Working on the old do-do that I do, I thoroughly go through the system, before attempting to bleed. So, I know in...

Re: 8ba crank in A block

I'm also on the 'confused list'... And, really curious. Wishing Pete would elaborate a little, if indeed, an 8ba crank in an A block (and, I mean Model A). And, is this what Alan had in mind?

Re: Running ford king seeley gauges on 12 v

Not sleeping... post 2 mentions a cvr, as from an old Ford. Won't cut it, at least not in my experience. Post 3 talks about an equivalent from Dennis Carpenter. Ad says solid state. Maybe, just...

Re: Running ford king seeley gauges on 12 v

I'll be a little 'off topic', but here's a thought. I hope there is an 'electronic wiz' here that can point out why I'm full of it...
My take on Ford gauges, say of the 46-48 era, is that they...

Re: An alternator discussion

And.... for us 'cheap' folks, I just go grab an alternator off the stash pile. I don't recall ever picking one that didn't work. Good enough for me. I also have a 'likeness' for the Ford alternator....

Re: brakes pull hard to right

That new hose on the left side.... did you blow through it? Are you sure it's 'open'? Did the left side bleed 'normally'? Did you take apart the new left side wheel cylinder, and verify all is good? ...

Re: 12 starter

Are you sure that it is a 'new 12 volt starter'? Is there any possibility that it is indeed a new starter, but original 6 volt, that the PO planned to use on 12 volts?
Suggestion... run it (out of...

Re: 4th gear, it's allright

Shoe polish... I keep thinking of Burt Monroe, Fastest Indian movie... shoe polish for 'refreshing' the tires.

Marty, that white stuff is all we ever used, back in the day. I'm sure there is new thinking on this, but for whatever it's worth, the white stuff worked. We slathered it on with the palm of our...

Re: 55-57 Tbird info

Obviously opinion here... I like 55's best. I don't like 6V, and might consider 12V conversion. (Emphasis on 'might'.) I don't like continental spares. I don't like 57's, as I feel they are a little...

Re: ship a car from Las Vaga to SC

I'm looking at a car that would involve a cross country move. A project, no engine or trans. Shipping is what makes it a deal-breaker. Love to give Jim a shot at it, but I don't see it happening....

Re: what size diode do I need

Right on !!!! My opinion, get this thing spinning and running first. Later, figure out how you want to wire it.

Re: what size diode do I need

OK.... I'm another 'Jeep-Nut'. And, I'm also working on an old Jeep (47 2A). And, I've had my share of old Jeeps, about 30+, and maybe half dozen of them WWII, and Ford GPW's. (But, never a GP) So,...
