Re: storage

They tell me that mice like dark areas to nest. Glove boxes, tail pipes, under the hood, under seats, etc.---- probably is best to leave these areas open if you can or else really close them up...

Re: Fan Belt Tension Adjuster....

Good idea. It is tricky to tighten the fan belt on these motors, at least I always thought so.

Re: Marvel Classic Motor Oil

I'm a firm believer in MMO in the gas tank, use it in all of our old Fords. I never used it until I stuck a valve in the Flathead, and MMO brought it back plus the engine ran a lot smoother. Today's...

Re: First 100 Miles!!! Or a touch more. My '39 Pickup

That's a good question I often wondered that too. We had a '37 PU, nice little truck. At a real quick glance they remind you of a '35-'36 truck.

I believe I read once that the '37 was a transition...

Re: 36 Can't Stop The Oil Pan Drain Plug Drip

I think after taking off that pan, if it was me, I'd get it brazed.
