Re: Original 1932 Standard Coupe up for auction

I'm kind'a with JSeery on this. In the case of the Vicky, and from MY perverted perspective, these two similarly-equipped Vickys display (to ME) just how pleasing a tastefully-chopped specimen...

Re: My first dumb question

It was Christmas of 2002 I believe that my wife bought a crated block in cosmoline from Richard LeJuerrne of Halibrand in Kansas, as a surprise Christmas present for me. It's still in that crate...

Re: Drivetrain Advice Needed

If you'll type "Equis" into your browser, you'll find that quite a few DIFFERENT topics come under that nomenclature. Give me a clue as to which type of "Equis" you're referring to, so that I can...

Re: 1940 Brake Drums

I've always believed what Mart says here to be factual, although the SMOOTHE drum MAY be original from another supplier, or possibly an "across-the-counter" Ford replacement. If you look inside that...

Re: 8BA Flathead crankcase breather tube

If you cut that tube roughly in half, a Dorman 555-023 freeze plug will fit perfectly in the top end of that original bottom piece. Then, use a 3/8" compression bulkhead fitting such as this 3/8"...

Re: Original 1932 Standard Coupe up for auction

Re: smoke coming out bottom of blow-by tube on an 8ba

Only if a 'tree-hugger' sees you chuggin' down the road. That suggests that the compression rings are getting weak. Keep on truckin'! DD

Re: My first dumb question

WOW....That's ALMOST hard to fathom when you consider that $7.50 is well over ONE % of the MSRP of a WHOLE '40 Ford being approximately $660. DD

That is a FACT! Certainly isn't worth the chance of brake fluid on your carpet, or God forbid....on any painted surface!! DD
