Re: Now that I found my pump, anyone know of a kit?

If there are no circles cut in the housing or base, no rings wore on the shaft, then it does not need rebuilding.

Re: 1932 Carburetor adaptor

My 32 Tudor was a Canadian car and had that adapter when I got it. I have since changed over to a later manifold.

shipping frustration

It seems that EPAY is calling things shipped when only a label is created and often 5 or 6 days until the item is accepted by USPS, UPS or FEDEX. Items which are supposed to be priority expedited...

Re: Head Gasket for 21 stud

I have had no problems with copper or steel gaskets well coated with copper coat and would never use the other type especially on valuable heads. The composite gaskets bond to the heads and block...

Re: South Wind Heatew

I have never heard a ticking noise from a SW igniter.
The igniter is actually a glow plug and has no moving parts. If your heater is used you may have to take it apart and clean it. SW heaters...

Re: What to check on a 46 Mercury

If the Merc steers well, stops well, holds fair oil pressure 30 Plus at rpm, drives a short distance at 60mph without heating, you have a fine car. Most of them came with a 3:54 gear in the rear so...

Re: Can't find heads for 34 V8

Pete, I have a set of those and they have strange combustion chambers. There is a trough leading to the spark plug area. Mine are 34 PN but are for domed pistons. Do you have any specs on them?

Re: Adjustable lifter problem

Any lifter with that thin head is not going to stay set. The correct lifters have a thick head. Those thin head lifters are only good for stock cams and N Ford farm tractors.

Use a Ibeam some chains and you porta power. My experience is that most of the time you have to go past center when jacking for the frame to come back where you want it.

Re: 46 Convertible top not working

Yes, you can remove the screw that holds end of your cyl. that will release the top from hydraulics. Another very important thing on 46-8 conv. is to always unsnap the buttons on both rear sides...

Re: 46 Convertible top not working

Use metal gaskets with copper coat sprayed on them. If you have to remove a head, it will come off and its possible you could use the gasket again. The fiber gaskets stick to the block and head and...
