I had a flexfan, 6 blade, on a '51 Ford and it ran hot in town. Checked air flow, wouldn't even hold a piece of paper against rad. at idle. Put a stock Ford four blade fan on and guess what, holds...

Re: Help Quick Fuel SL450SV & Y Block 292

On a Holley there's a linkage to close the secondaries when the primaries close. It's the little wire thing that connects the primaries to the secondaries. Must be connected or the secondaries can...

Re: Temperature

My experience has been that drilling extra holes effects the calibration. Runs colder. If you look at a thermostat closely you will see bleeding air is designed into the thermostat. Don't try to out...

Re: Crazy Tachometer Behaviour

I have an older Autometer tach. that I've used on many cars and is now on my '48 F-1. I have an older Mallory dual point distributor and a generator. All working fine together. Maybe I'm just lucky!

Re: Stroker Pistons from back in the day

I think I have a set of Jahns pistons for a 289 somewhere in my junk. I can't believe how high we used to rev those engines with those ole heavy pistons and little puny 2 BBL rods. Failures were rare.

Re: A New L@@K

As to lowering. As seen in the before and after pictures of my car, I put it back stock. You should of seen the "lowering blocks" on the front! What an abortion!

Re: Low mileage original--is gas additive needed?

If this is just a hobby car I wouldn't worry about it. I overhauled a 302 Ford back in '94 or '95 that was a leaded gas engine. Didn't do anything to the valves or seats but grind them. Put that...

Re: Today's Observations

A backfire as you described can be caused by a exhaust leak between engine and muffler.

Re: 1940 merc & ford x member replace

Re: 1940 merc & ford x member replace

Zeke3,
You had to cut the firewall to put a 289 in a '37 Ford? I put a 289 in a '40 about that same time and cut nothing.

Re: Floor shifter

You can make a real good floor shift conversion from the column shift mechanism from the older Ford's. I made one in the early 60's for a '54 Ford I had at the time. Had a friend that worked in the...
