Re: Winterizing

I often put some 40 proof into the mechanic before winter hits. Tends to keep the pipes from freezing up.

Re: Accepting cash for car sale

It amazes me when a thread breaks down due to petty nitpicking.

I guess the adage of he who is without sin be the first to throw a stone does not apply here.

I try my best, but I am of the...

Re: Thoughts on how to straighten a '32 trans mount

Good point. I can use blocks once fairly straight. Maybe an arbor press once almost flat will allow me to see it as I work it.

Thoughts on how to straighten a '32 trans mount

I have two Ford script trans mounts (piece that the rubber ring sits in).
Sacramento Vintage Ford will vulcanize a new ring on to these pieces. One of the mounts is bowed slightly. I'd like to...

Re: Bent Horn-Light Rod

I believe modern arrow shafts are hollow and most are made from aluminum. Some high tech ones are made from carbon fiber, but I believe most are hollow tubes.

Re: Bent Horn-Light Rod

A piece of angle iron the same length provides a great tool to help straighten and see where it is still bent

Re: Early and late '32

Gabalus,

I would suggest purchasing David's incredible books on '32 Fords. All of your questions and then some will be answered.

Re: Engine Oil Drain PLug Flathead V8 1946-47-48 Engine

I would suggest using high temp epoxy to secure a high strength magnet to the center of the drain plug. Cheap insurance to catch any metal flakes floating around in there.

Re: Fuel tank dipping & sealing opinions welcome

For the life of me, I can't recall the name of company that specialized in gas tank coatings. They did everything from antique cars to industrial equipment. They use to advertise in Hemmings.

If I recall reading that the Jeep main shaft is getting to be like hen's teeth. Is that accurate, Coop?

Re: Long shot: Looking for a Hershey vendor who sold nice '32 parts in Chocolate Fiel

Re: French Flathead

Can you remove the stock distributor and run a crab or helmet off the cam like Ford? I see a block off plate on the front cover. I never knew they made two types.
