It sounds simple, but how easy is that procedure and any special tools required?

Re: Timing Issue

I plan to take the cover off to see if anything is amiss. My (knowledgeable) buddy that helped with this project said it was lined up properly with the keyhole.

As to the spark lever linkage, it...

Re: Timing Issue

Iíve been told that if the crank gear is on backwards, it isnít that critical and it will work either way

Re: Timing Issue

There was no mark on the crank gear so we marked where the teeth meshed with each other on the old timing gear setup before removing, and then placed the new timing gear to line up where the old one...

Question Timing Issue

Interesting situation. I had overheating issues which I'm sure led to a blown head gasket. Did some surgery: installed a new HC head with graphite head gasket, and a new heavy duty radiator. Since...

Oil Pump and Valve Chamber Question

Has anyone ever dropped their oil pan and found the oil pump stuck? I removed the screw in the block where a bolt can be placed to keep the oil pump in place, but this had no affect. I'd like to...

Post Re: Pitman Arm Question

Will do. Parts were purchased from Snyder's with the familiar Ford logo on the packaging (:) so I'm hoping all is to spec.

Re: Pitman Arm Question

Are you talking about a longer pitman arm? I don't have the shorty - heard too many problems with those. I have a new powder coated pitman arm from Bratton's (I believe) when I rebuilt the front...

Pitman Arm Question

Just recently rebuilt my 7 tooth steering system for my 28 Model A. Installed a new sector shaft and worm as a part of the rebuild. My pitman arm fit fine on my old sector shaft, but upon...

Re: Separating Control Rod from Control Arm

Ok, I was able to get the arms removed from the rods - combination of drilling and a punch. Working the rods out of the upper bushing -- in very snug and upper bushing is not budging even though the...

Re: Separating Control Rod from Control Arm

Thanks much. I'll try the punch first. Someone else mentioned drilling out as well.

Re: Radiator Overheating

I'm looking at using "Royal Purple Ice" as a cooling system optimizer and conditioner. Supposed to drop temps by up to 25 degrees. Says it fights corrosion, electrolysis & erosion. Funny thing is,...

Re: Radiator Overheating

I used Thermocure which s made by Evaporust. Shouldn't this do the job on the cooling jackets? Maybe a course of Rust911 too just to be sure? If I go with a new radiator I would really like to...

Re: Radiator Overheating

It appears that mine is a 10 fin/inch radiator. If I have to buy a new one, several folks have pushed me towards a Berg Radiator (3 core 12 fin/inch), but at $795+shipping, a bit pricey. Do you...

Re: Radiator Overheating

Not sure how old it is, but I'm sure it's not an original. I believe my wife's uncle rebuilt the car in the late 80's, so he probably installed a used radiator (or maybe new?) then. Outwardly it...

Re: Radiator Overheating

Timing is good. Try to exhaust all options before pulling radiator, though this will make it easier to attach the new shroud I purchased! Just added pans to both sides since I didn't have them...
