Re: thermostat

Are you looking to use a barrel shaped thermostat, or a modern style one?

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

I've never had the pleasure of working with non-US brake parts, but from the post here on the Barn it appears they can have multiple issues.

Drivers seat to wheel cylinders should do it. :)

Re: Ford GT 2018 $1125000 BJ just now

V8, you jogged my memory, I think the ones the local dealer had were $500,00 not $250,000. They had them in the showroom for a long time. The fleet salesman, who is a friend of mine, was telling me...

Re: Ford GT 2018 $1125000 BJ just now

Our local Ford dealer had two of them for I think $250,000 each in 2018. Looks like it would have been a good investment!

Re: Vintage Seat belt retractor reels

I remember using them on my 67 mustang (in 67), but can't remember if I liked them or not! :)

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

34PKUP: How much pressure is being is being exerted on the wheel cylinder when the bleeder is open and the brake pedal goes to the floor?


You seem to use a different method of bleeding brakes...

Re: A-team performance distributor issues

Are you sure the plug wires are in the correct position on the distributor? And the distributor is installed correctly so the rotor is at the #1 plug when the timing marks are lined up?

Re: Identify this engine.

Mice in an engine is a very common story and it is rare to be able to take an engine that has been setting around (especially with components off) and get them to startup. Almost all of them need to...

Re: 1936 lower radiator hoses installation

That sounds like the hoses are oversize. They should be at least a little difficult to get on.

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

Ok, I will modify my post. I have never attempted to bleed brakes without the drums on and the way I bleed them it would not work. I put a lot of pressure on the brake pedal, and thus the...

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

You can't bleed brakes with the drum off, so that would be a place to start. There is nothing for the brake shoes to push against.

Re: '41 won't crank when hot

Think this is because (at least to me) the original post was not clear about the issue. I was under the assumption that the starter was not turning over correctly when hot. Seems the issue was more...

Re: 32 sedan door latches

If you look on the inside you might to able to see the weld marks where the original holes were located. Unless a section was removed and a new panel welded in.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

That's the way I would read it as well (and the way I have always checked a cam). But I can see how it is somewhat confusing to then put a valve clearance in with the event specs.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Think I would stick a shim in between the lifter and the valve stem to get the valve lash out of the process.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Problem is if the valve lash is in there it will change the opening and closing events. I have always used zero valve lash, but the cam specs are a bit confusing on that.

Re: Left and right cylinder head

The wiring diagrams were not always updated to the latest configuration, so it could have been a 41 mid-year change.
