Re: Help decipher GM distributor vacuum canister numbers

I've had two of those (a Mr Gasket and an Accel, same unit). Both failed within a year or so.

Re: A Christmas Story

My favorite line from the movie was something like, "Some mean were Baptists, some men were Masons, but my father was an Oldsmobile man."

Re: Anyone know what this fits?

That appears to be a '53 (only) Truck fan, with the sealed bearing, wide belt. Pretty rare if so.

Re: Thread size for '48-'52 F1 Leaf Spring U-Bolts

A local truck spring shop bent me up a set of 4 U-bolts to order, with new heavy washers and deep nuts, for $25. They did it while I waited. No way I'd re-use 68-y.o. bolts on a front end.

Re: Carbon on porcelin of plugs,flathead V8

So undoubtedly some choke-on time? short trips, idling with rich mixture will blacken plugs. If a fresh rebuild, rings may not be seated yet, short runs won't help that.

Re: 1951 ford bed info

Original is something close to 17 gauge on the sides and front panel.

Check out Mar-K http://www.mar-k.com/

Re: Info on this truck transmission

The trans does appear to be earlier than a 48-52, but I believe the rear mount is specific to those years. It's a non-synchro 4-sp, nothing I'd care to drive these days.

Re: Info on this truck transmission

Set up like a 48-52 truck trans, with an F-2 / F-3 rear mount. The rear mount "feet" are often cracked, tho.

Re: 1934 Ford Phaeton Owned By Jay Hertz Of Albuquerque

I was on a committee in the EFV8 Club local chapter with Jay, a very interesting guy! Oddly enough he was more of an early Chevy guy, had some really nice 20's vintage Chevies.

Re: 30 amp generator vs 55 amp

Can't say for certain on that old of a car, but in 48-52 trucks it's a larger generator.

Re: “Inside” part of road draft tube

FYI the original p/n for the tube is 8BA-6759. Google didn't find any but Dennis C. may have it in their stash of NOS parts.

The oil fill tube for an 8BA is 1.3695 OD, might be worth trying,...

Re: 1950 F3 Ignition switch and door lock

The problem on trucks is getting the door lock cylinder out. It's retained by an Allen-head setscrew almost an inch long, and they rarely come out without a fight.

Re: 1950 F3 Ignition switch and door lock

There are repro key sets out there, usual chinese. But they work. If you can get your door lock cylinder out, a locksmith can make a key to fit if you give him a blank.

Can you tell if it's all the brakes, or just one wheel? If it's all of them, the residual pressure valve in the MC may be bad.
