Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

Re: 32 frame

That's so fantastic! So much to learn about the '32 Ford that is so unique to that year.


Not to hijack the thread, but this particular piece of history puts me in mind of a WWII Jeep on Guam...

Re: 59ab oil pressure sending unit

All 80 lb senders are marked 80 on the bottom. 50 lb senders may be marked 50, or not marked at all.

Re: Speaking of Air Filters

Mike, the kicker is the decal. You just donít find them in that beautiful condition. This would be a find for someone with a Rouge car, and thatís where the value is.

Re: Perhaps Another "Dumb" Question

Cool coupe, long story here. Heat risers help vaporize the fuel when the engine is cold. Makes for a quicker warmup. A side effect of these heat risers is that they connect the two exhaust systems...

Re: fuel

Not vapor lock. Pump gasket, diaphram, or check valves, or blockage in the line. Remove flex line from pump, blow air to tank to hear bubbles. Replace flex line, remove line from carb, and with...

Re: NOS heads

A single use paper mache female mold is made from the original male model. As for shrinkage/movement, you can see the slight misalignment at the precise placement of the stud holes. Rework blemishes...

Re: how to check rear wheel bearings

Larry, with respect, I haven't a clue as to the "flat surface" you speak of, maybe I just don't understand what you are saying. The in/out play described is well addressed in post #3 above, the...

Re: Daytona Carburetor float valves

Jim, a couple of things may be going on here. First, no 94 is capable of holding back 4 lbs of pressure. I've heard that Daytona carb parts are good, but again, not so good at above 3 lbs. Your...

I can see now why it is called a bellows. Is that a common generic name for it, or is there another name ?
