Re: There's paint under there!!!

Don't be afraid of doing some metal work and paint. You could always make it mechanical safe and just run.

Re: There's paint under there!!!

I'm parcel to cream color. But big trucks almost call out of a color that can take a little wear. Greys are always good too.


There is a few colors to choose from that are ford.

Re: 1939 right rear drum install

torque that baby down to 180-200lbs. If you don't have a torque wrench that high get a long pipe and put it on your wrench and jump on it :) Key set is important as mentioned.

Re: Charlie stolded.....my version

Some people will never be satisfied, they have bad fuel lines, vacuum leaks, pump issues, or whatever. But you didn't fix it for them.

Re: Who's gonna fill their shoes?

I guess I like a little of both and keep my head up. Dig solar, dig flatheads. There is a world with both, always for everything. We be playing chess not checkers. It's not a switch. Best to just...

Nice Bike! I'm into hit/miss motors. Once it's running warm, it'll run on motor oil. :)

Re: HVLP primer gun suggestions & experience

Last epoxy sealer I sprayed was with a harbor freight purple throwaway gun. 1.8 tip. Standing in line a guy behind me gave a a coupon for the spray gun, so I grabbed two. I don't think I paid more...

Re: Who's gonna fill their shoes?

There is no such thing as an electrical flathead. Gas will be around for a long while. Supply and demand would make gas cheaper as demand is less due to electric and alternative transportation. But...

Re: Who's gonna fill their shoes?

I've been on the Hamb since 99. I'm just conveying the feeling of the people around me that are at shows or I meet. There are a few. My old club in Florida was 5 guys. Only 3 of us were committed to...

Re: Who's gonna fill their shoes?

I hate to say it but this is true in my experience. There will be a few trying to not keep this thing from becoming air ride and non-flatmotors. But we are getting thin. Things change, who knows in...

Re: Gasoline in Crankcase

Are you running the mechanical only? or an electrical pump through the mechanical pump? A hole/ripe in the diaphragm won't pump real well. But a electric pump running through it will certainly fill a...

Re: Brake drums

It'd be great if someone desired to make wide fives drums. There would be a lot of people on that bus. Maybe not as cool as "fined" drums.... but racing has adapted them so wide five has a bit of a...

Re: Finally got it home

Looks like you could possibly run a modified crab if one was inclined to do so. Or not.

Re: 80lb oil pump with a 50lb gauge ?

No and yes, more flow doesn't mean more psi... flow vs tolerances/resistance. You can run a 1" hose of water down a hallway and create no pressure. Run the 1" hose into a 1/8" restrictive door then...

Re: 80lb oil pump with a 50lb gauge ?

These engines where made in the 30-50s. Low oil pressure systems. Heck model a 4 bangers had no positive oil pressure. Just change your oil sometimes.

Re: Runs great until it heats up

Lead was used for L head motor upper cylinder lucubration. Guess it's a thing, as they sell lead additive now. Which I would never buy.
