Re: Use of Slip plate to lube springs

Clem, what are you referring to as 600 weight? The stuff that is sold to the Model A guys? If so, several things here, first "w" doesn't stand for oil weight in general, it is for "winter" and has...

Re: Headlight switch

As posted above, if you can find the steering wheel part of the light switch/horn button, it is easy to just fish a wire down the steering column and out the bottom of the steering box for a horn...

Re: Electric wiper conversion

Just checked and they don't appear to sell units for 33-34s, interesting.

Re: 1939 Sealed Beams

That and the "look", it made an older car look newer in the eyes of the beholders. Don't think many people were interested in keeping them original.

Re: Jacking 1939 model 91A

Bumper type jack were always like that, you have to jack the bumper way up to get a tire to clear.

Re: Headlight switch

The original style light switch parts should be fairly easy to come by, but if your not concerned about it being original, just use a dash mounted light switch (like Ford switched to in 1940). The...

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...

Well, the cables are most likely not a problem.

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.

Re: Autolite Spark Users Only

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.
