Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

I also used PC-7 epoxy. Actually that whole process was very long-winded and I'd like to not repeat it.....

Re: Clutch chatter solved!

would engage smoother......

Re: Help decipher GM distributor vacuum canister numbers

I just completed setting up my GM distributor from Charlie a little while ago.
I used the Crane adjustable vacuum can (99601-1).

I followed the guidance on the pdf attachment.

Re: Hagerty insurance ?

That's news to me. I'll check into it.

Re: Hagerty insurance ?

Don't have Hagerty, but it's a very popular choice with the vintage Mustang folks.
My '48 is still with USAA but I will probably be moving it over to Condon Skelly, who insures another one of my...

Re: Brassworks radiators

Nice stuff. Woulda gone that way if I hadn't found a good
used radiator down here. The $200 vs the Brassworks
cost was a pretty significant savings.

Re: Steering box.

Box is worn out internally if you can get it 90% perfect but it's so tight that it gets stuck.
It should only be slightly "tight" on center.

Re: Complete conversion kit ? 6v-12v

Mine was already converted to 12v so I built a custom wiring harness & never looked back.
A 6 volt system isn't as forgiving as a 12 volt system with regard to connections, corrosion and grounds....

Re: Thread size for '48-'52 F1 Leaf Spring U-Bolts

The thread size is indeed 9/16-18.
48-52 uses 01Y-5455-C for the "U" bolts. The nuts are 33848-S7
The lock washers are 34850-S

A regular cutting die will definitely "chase" threads.... it will...

Re: Bolt remover socket

Might not have the luxury of doing this but I've cut mangled bolt heads off and welded on a nut..... if the bolt head is flush, you won't be doing that though.

Re: Stripped threads in valuable intake- Time Sert vs. TIG and redrill or other

I probably wouldn't use the Loctite product.
You didn't post a photo but I think your heliarc concept might be best.
I'm assuming you're not doing the welding. This is not something you want
to do...

Re: I Can't Stop My Clutch Chatter On My '53!

I've got this chatter BS with my F-1 as well. Same modus operandi....
slow pedal release, bad news. Quicker release with a fair amount of

I bought mine to use and drive it. Continually having to mess with it is not part of that plan. 70 years old or not, it should have some token of reliability. If I need to slightly update some stuff,...

Re: 4100 carb

Haven't run a 4100 on a flathead but you'd use a Navarro or Offy or other purpose built 4-bbl manifold.
From Autolite the 4100's range from around a 1" venturi to a 1.19....

Re: Bad Speedometer cable or...

This is the one I used.....
It has a 1:1 ratio and uses 7/8-18 threads, which is just the ticket.
I've seen them on eBay as well.

Re: Bad Speedometer cable or...

Brush the speedo internals gently, compressed air then and lube sparingly.
I hated that ridiculous loop at the far end of the cable by the trans and I
installed a 90-degree adapter.

Re: Bad Speedometer cable or...

I did them both in my F-1. The cable being lubricated helped
immensely and the speedo being cleaned & lubed fixed it up
to about 100%.
You'll want a light "clock" oil for the speedo. I used a...
