Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

Ziggster. I don't know what car you have, so I can't compare to what I have on my '46 Coupe. Send me a PM with your contact info if you want more information.

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

I have used C4 and C4P in my 59AB filter housing. I'm not sure what the difference is between the two, but one must be better than the other, because it has more letters. :) Actually, I believe the...

Re: using the stock mechanical fuel pump with electric

Rance. I installed a 6v flow through pump on my '46 Coupe, for the same reason you want to. I only run it if the car has been sitting for a week or so, and rarely after the car has run. There are...

Re: Trunk mat 41 convertible

If you click on FITMENTS below the pictures, neither one lists for a convertible. I'm assuming you don't have one to compare with the pictures, so gave a good look at the floor area of your trunk to...

Re: Generator Pulley Missing Coolaing Vanes

With three blades missing, depending on their relative location to each other, cooling isn't your main problem. Think of the speed the generator turns at, and unless those missing blades are equally...

Re: Brakes Bendix style

Re: Brakes Bendix style

3wmike. If you are going with the Bendix kits, the supplier will need to know the width of the brake shoes. My '46 drums are 1-3/4".

Re: Brakes Bendix style

Re: Adapting An OE Gas Tank Sender Unit

DrB. Looks like a nice job. Did you check to see if the toilet gasket was fuel proof? The PO of my '46 Coupe use a gasket material that was not fuel proof, and it made a mess inside the tank. It...

Re: Petronix better ?

So are you just asking about the coil performance, or do you have the Petronics unit as well? When I bought my '46 Coupe a few years ago, I thought I would go with the electronic ignition. After...

Re: Holley 94 Fuel Inlet Fiiting - 1/4" Tube

Ziggster. If you have a tubing bender, it is fairly easy to reshape the line you have shown in post #7. I had to do that for the new line I put on '46 Coupe

Re: wood top bow supplier?

You are right Mike. For $500, it should be correct. Have you contacted Oak Bows about the poor quality. A valid question on the length to reshape to the correct profile. Measuring both pieces,...

Re: wood top bow supplier?

Kube. Just a suggestion, but the "bogus" bow looks like it is steam bent and not laminated. If steam bent , I believe it could be reshaped by steaming it, or soaking it in hot water to relax the...

One thing not mentioned, is that solder alloys have different melting temperatures. Some alloys, i.e. 50/50 and 60/40 are in the 183 to 212C range, while some may need as much as 300C to melt. ...
