Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

I can't help myself; here is a picture of a "deuce, dually ... truck" I found (it is European).

Re: I did not know that......

Dale,

Thanks for posting those links; I had tried several times to order the "MA5", but it wouldn't let me. These came through fine; There must be a problem with the "MA5".

I have been able to...

Re: I did not know that......

Boy, I must be doing something wrong, because they say "Unavailable for Home Shipment". Maybe I'll try again. It could be because I'm in north-central Minnesota?

Re: flathead refresh

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

However, the fact that the O/P says he has an "1951 ford 59AB", should raise some red flags and caution the rest of us of the situation.

Re: I did not know that......

Odd; "NAPAONLINE" would not let me order any of this. You guys probably got it all first.:D

Re: Original Engine and Trans.

"51 MERC-CT" - please read my thread again; "If that date is much different from the car's build date, it's probably not original." This time make sure you don't miss the italicized words.

Re: I did not know that......

I have a bunch of old Mallory's, so I'm going to order one of each and see what I get. That should settle it.

Well, that didn't work; I don't think they are generally available. Maybe someone with...

Re: Questions on Dwell

If it runs as well as you say, 42 degrees seems to be good. How accurate is the dwell meter?

Re: Parts Unknown

Now that you mention it, it does look like it could be a specialized bicycle tool. That would explain the small amount of leverage for such a large hex.

Re: Original Engine and Trans.

I believe this to be true only for vehicles produced through the 1948 model year. I know of no way to determine the originality of an engine in a "shoebox" Ford.

You can tell if it's not original...

Re: Cars from my past, how about you

High school? '51 Ford 4 door. After college graduation and a new job? 1967 Corvette coupe with a 327/350 4 speed. Now? A '51 Ford coupe and a 1967 Corvette coupe with a 327/350 4 speed (no, not the...

Re: Eddie Meyer Intake

Looking a Mr. Coopman's picture, I have to think that perhaps they had the idea to make a version for 4 bolt carbs. Why else would they cast it with what looks to be an extended carb mounting pad?...

Re: battery cable

I don't know about '53 Fords, but the earlier ones had a braided ground strap on the positive side. It may be that someone replaced that strap with a new cable, which is it be expected. They probably...

This is probably a good idea, but I will warn you DO NOT use the rodent reference over there; if you do, your thread will mysteriously disappear.:eek:

Re: '40 Gas, Oil pressure Gauges

Could I ask your rationale behind putting an early (50 lb) pump in an 8BA? Usually, it's the other way around.

Re: Eddie Meyer Intake

It would be interesting to know if the 4 bolt pattern matches the Mercury Holley/small base 2G or not. It looks close. Maybe it was a "Double Duty" model that could be run as a hi-rise or a racing...

Re: Aftermarket aluminum finned heads for 1937 21 stud

Re: spark plug recommendation

Back in my snowmobiling days, reading plugs was very important. We wanted to go as fast as possible, and that meant "leanin' 'em down" as far as it was safe to go. Of course, if you went too far, you...

Re: Difficulty Bleeding 1940 Brakes

DOT-5 fluid is on the way out. It does not work well with anti-lock brakes, which are becoming more and more common, so it will become increasingly difficult to source. Also, as you stated, it can be...

Re: My '53 Customline

Running tubes in tubeless tires is generally not a good idea. This is what can happen.

I have tubeless tires on the stock riveted wheels on my '51 Fords. I have never had a problem with leaks. On...
