Re: Drum, no swage?

The hole in the center of the drum seems to fit the raised flange on the hub almost perfectly. Its put together just like a modern car with drum brakes. The shoulders on the studs fit just slightly...

I had been hearing a popping sound sometimes after releasing the...

Re: Tire Question From a newbie!

What worked best for me was brillo pads in a thick mixture of murphy's oil soap and water. Plus the famous elbow grease.

Re: Shock Link Installation STILL !!!!!

Re: Doing it the primitive way

I see something is in the red! Is that the camber or toe?

Re: Parking brake hangs

Thanks for the replies. Yes, it is humid in NC. I do keep the car in an insulated air conditioned shop. If I engage the parking brake and drive foward after releasing it, I don't get the pop. Only in...

Re: Suddenly won't start

I chased the very same problem for a few days. I had the same symptoms. It was the wire inside the armored cable at the distributor. I got a reading of about .5 to .6 volts on the point arm.

Re: Opinion on Sears Allstate tires

I checked my Allstate tires today. They were nylon with date stamp of 108. From what the previous owner said, I think they were bought in 1988.

Re: Piston sizes

In the 60's and 70's the Ford parts book used to refer to the .001 and .002 as "red" and "blue".
Can you imagine a customers facial expression when the parts guy asked if his rod bearings were red...

Re: Pistons

I've heard you can hear the ocean if you put a sea shell to you ear. Can you hear an engine running if you use pistons for ears? :)

Re: Adjusting Snyder's repo shocks?

H.L.,

That reminds me of a tool we found years ago at the Ford dealership where I work. I will have to post a picture if I can remember to take one. It was a lifter tester. It had a rod about 12"...

Re: Adjusting Snyder's repo shocks?

I was a bit surprised at the lack of instructions myself. I like the shocks though.

Re: Adjusting Snyder's repo shocks?

Thanks for the help! So, my next project is to inspect the springs closely. I did a search and have been reading for the past 1/2 hour or so.

I am especially excited to check my horsepower. I...

Re: Adjusting Snyder's repo shocks?

Springs are ok. Not too dusty. Speaking of springs, I did some work on my Dad's '31 Tudor Friday and while crawling around under it, I discovered all four nuts on the rear spring u-bolts were just...

Adjusting Snyder's repo shocks?

Anyone installed Snyder's repo shocks? If so, Have you adjusted them? Mine didn't really seem to make as much difference in the ride as I had suspected. I had none on the car before. The weather here...

Reamers

I found some new in the wrap reamers that I rescued from the tool room at work about 15 years ago. We were updating tool storage and getting rid of anything we didn't use anymore. These all appear to...
