Re: oil slinger

Are you referring to the oil slinger on the rear main bearing? No installation, it is part of the crankshaft.

Re: Alternator Always Charging

Not sure I agree with that. When I turn on my lights I definitely see an "influence" on my ammeter.

Re: International Model A For Day

Re: Zenith carb

Good point. I had a NEW Zenith carburetor from Snyder's that ran extremely lean. Had to run with the GAV open 1˝+ turns. Turns out the throttle shaft bore in the carb body was HUGE, allowing air in....

Re: Exhaust leak...BADDDD!!!

ET, I have not used the copper gasket for the joint but have had good success with the sleeve that the vendors sell and hi-temperature exhaust sealant. I also like the "No-nut" clamp.

Re: Shock ID

My guess would be they were mounted such because if mounted in stock location they would hit the brake rod.

Re: Shock ID

Maybe a '32 or early V-8? Houdaille Shocks were used on other brands besides Ford also. http://www.fordgarage.com/pages/shockidentification.htm

Re: Stipe Shocks

Thanks for the response Benson. My Stipe Shocks were on the car when I bought it and I didn't receive the data sheet.

Since I posted my question I found on The Ford Garage to use "modern premium...

Re: Stipe Shocks

I realize that. But unlike other repro Houdaille type shocks, Stipes can be refilled if needed.

My question is: Has anyone ever had to add oil to Stipe Shocks and if so what oil did you use?

Stipe Shocks

Has anyone ever had to add oil to Stipe Shocks and if so what oil did you use. I don't need to add oil to mine, just curious for future knowledge.

Re: Mike's web domain error

Really? I have never had a problem with Snyder's but I prefer Bratton's, which I have never had a problem with either. What version of Safari do you have. I have 14.0.3

Amen to that. The only time I have ever blown a fuse was because of original style connector.

Re: Muffler Question

If it lasts as long as Conway's (30+ years) with no rust or repainting I believe I would be happy. The next custodian of my car can worry about in ~2051!!

Re: Muffler Question

Did I highlight anything (in red) in your post? I was referring to Gene F.

BTW, I know what series S/S Aries uses. It is on their website. :p

Re: Muffler Question

I thought 300 series is more corrosion resistant than 400 series? Why would you not want 300 series?

Re: Muffler Question

Thanks Conway, I just ordered a stainless one. I don't want to deal with rust and paint. I'm told the stainless will "patina" nicely and not be "in your face" shiny.
