Re: 1939 Sealed Beams

Our 37 had a set of the Electroline sealed beam conversions on it when my brother bought it in 1964. They seemed to be aimed too high and could not be adjusted down enough. Maybe they were trying...

Re: Tips On Installing Stock Exhaust Pipes

The exhaust pipe routes through the hole with the small hole for a clamp beside it, third hole from the center of the vehicle. Attached is a photo of a 1936 chassis at the Ford V-8 Foundation in...

Re: Marvel Classic Motor Oil

I would do both for a sticky valve, down the carb for immediate application to the problem valve and in the tank for preventative measure.

Re: Problem Removing Steering Wheel

I like the idea to use a bearing separator under the steering wheel if you don't have the K.R. Wilson puller.

Re: 1933-34 battery box

Whizzernick, that is a great looking duplicate, what is the height of your box? Sadly, I have a 1937 that used the shorter battery and the top would be exposed.

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

I am not a fan of using an O ring in a joint that is not designed for it. I would use a copper or aluminum washer and replace it every oil change.

Re: 33 BB door striker spring

I have had good success with Bob Drake's hinge pin extractor. It is also compact enough to remove clevis pins on the 1937 brake cross shaft.

Re: 59L startup oil pressure at crank speed.

Cranking speed is probably around 200 rpm at the most. I think 20 psi is a good oil pressure for cranking the engine.

Re: Pop-up Adds at Bottom of Screen

Yes, I am having the same experience and it started in the middle of my session this morning. Annoying isn't it.

You might check out this discussion, nothing mentioned about Oregon, but plenty about wood body parts.

No, there are two oil pressure bosses located behind the left cylinder head on the flywheel housing area of the block casting. One boss is vertical and one points outward horizontal. The oil...

Re: Gas Tank Fuel Gauge reading question

I think the float will sit a little bit higher in water than in gasoline because it will not have to displace as much water to reach the point of equilibrium, so your gauge readings would be slightly...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Ol Ron, can you explain the term "split overlap"? I am not familiar with that term and how you check for it.

Thanks, Zeke

Re: Reamers, what are they for?

My guess is that the reamers are for truck king pins, however 1 13/16" would be a big pin. I don't know what Class 8 trucks use.

Re: 1938 Firestone whitewall tire pressure

Back when I worked at a gas station, in the bias ply days, we used 28-32 psi for everything except truck tires, Volkswagens and Corvairs.

Re: Stromberg carbs

How about three Carter YH side draft carburetors, like the early Corvettes?

Also used on turbocharged Corvairs and some Nash, I think.

Re: Oil pressure with remote oil fllter

I thought the idea of drilling the block for the 95% system was to use a full flow oil filter. You shouldn't use an orifice restriction fitting in a full flow system.
