Re: External oil filter - question on oil lines

Your engine uses a 1/4 NPT and a 1/8 NPT for output and oil return.
You have to determine what is used on whatever oil filter you have.

Re: "help"

You have not said whether or not you have the heads and spark plugs installed, are they installed?

Re: Just won't fire up.

If you have a glass (or other) fuel bowl on the fuel pump, check the cork gasket. It could be cracked or not tight. Leaking gasket can cause fuel starvation because it will suck air not fuel.

Re: MiG help

Perhaps a non-technical clarification on switching polarity for gas usage.

The SP-100 tips have a thread that is 6mm. x1 dia.

Notice that your machine is set up for gas.

Re: Shoebox Ford lower control arm spacer

Most likely an alignment correction done at sometime during it's lifetime whether new or later.
Put it back the way it was and get an alignment to insure it's correct.

Re: 266 versus 276 CI?

Have to agree with that. I would pay more attention to good ignition and well tuned fuel system.

Re: Need Help - Transmission Oil migration?

Same thing happens on my '51 MerOmatic.
