Re: '41 won't crank when hot

Might talk to the rebuilder before you pull it just to see what he has to say.

Re: 1939 Sealed Beams

Ralph, I agree there are not as bad on the 39 to me, as they give it a 40 std look. It is really the 37 and 38s that I don't like them on.

Re: 1939 Sealed Beams

And they must have sold millions of them! A large number of 37-38-39 Fords have them! They are ugly by my standards, but at the time I'm sure everyone thought they were a modern looking upgrade.

Re: Autolite Spark Users Only

The exhaust entering the tail pipe will be a mixture of all the cylinders on one side of the engine and is representative of the air/fuel mixture for the engine.

Re: 1936 Ford rearend gear ratio and speed

You can run the numbers and get a fairly good estimate. What people are normally concerned about is the engine rpms.

rpms = (axle ratio x mph x 336) / tire diameter

To determine the mph at a...

Re: rear end oil

Not in a rear axle, GL5 is a transmission issue, not a rear axle issue. High EP additives can attach "yellow" metals, like those found in a transmission. That should not be an issue in a rear axle.

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe Generator getting hot

If the voltage not running is 6v and it is a charged battery, something may not be correct with the battery. Voltage should be in the 6.3 to 6.4 volt range not running and in the 7.2 to 7.3v range...

Re: 1951 ford f-5 troubleshooting

Sounds a lot like a coil or condenser issue. Another thing to check is a fuel tank that is not vented. An easy test is to remove the gas cap and see what happens.

If the battery is going low in...

Yep, and that is what a lot of them (sellers) want you to do, legit or scam.

Re: Found Very Concerning Issue

Now is a good time to try the sealer, will give you a before and after. You now have the before, so just need the after.

Re: '41 won't crank when hot

Clean and properly sized battery and starter cables can be an issue. What size cables are you using?

Re: Brake Adjustment

It doesn't take much of an overlook to keep having issues, one bubble in the system is noticeable.

Sounds like a good time to use the sealant. You can do a before (which you already have) and after.

Re: new engine start-up problems

Yes, but that was the side to side issue I thought, this question is about indexing to the cam timing.

Pop-up Ads on photo attach window

Re: Toploader installation.

Alan, that goes against Ford's recommendations, they recommended mild EP gear lubricant for transmissions. That would be GL4 in todays world.

Re: Autolite Spark Users Only

The air blows down onto the surface of the oil then up through the filter material. It is not a direct path.
