Re: upper radiator hoses

Agree, 160 is a bit cool, I would use 180 min, 185-190 better.

Re: Sticky brakes

If the shoes are not retracting, or retracting slowly, could be the flexible brake hose going to the wheel cylinders (front). With age they can collapse internally and act like a one-way valve.

Corvette (in the late 60s, early 70s) should look something like this.

Re: 1939 Mercury Heater Question

Might also want to check out Southwind gas fueled heaters. Had one in a 41 Chevy in high school, loved it! Instant heat.

Just about any supplier should have the cam buttons.

Re: brake line valve

Faro, is the brake system modified from original? That will make a lot of difference in the answer.

Re: 41 Ford SuperDeluxe - V8 Rings stuck (again)

Well, you came to the right place IMO for these type of questions. The engine does look a little ragged. If and when you get it running you will want to address the rust in the water jackets. I...

Re: RPM check

You can back figure using the RPM to determine the rear axle ratio. All you need to know is the speed(MPH) and tire diameter. This is normally calculated in 3rd gear, so that is 1:1 and not a...

Re: Variable coil ballast resistor

To some extent these numbers/ calculations are just appropriations. The operating voltage is more like 14+, not 12. The resistance changes with temperature. There are other factors involved besides...

Re: Old School Parking brake fixture for stretched cable

Yep, the two nuts are used to adjust and tight the J-hook and go either side of solid part at the end where the hook is now. The J-hook needs to be between the studs to pull on the cable.

Re: Change 12V Positive Ground to Negative ground

The Ammeter issue depends on if you have a Std or Dx model. The Standard had an Ammeter, the Deluxe have a Batt Indicator.

Re: Change 12V Positive Ground to Negative ground

In your case I think it would be much easier to use the voltage reducer Ford used when they switched to 12 volts. It drops the voltage to all the gauges with just the one unit and connects between...

Re: Question on flathead oil canister filter housing

They are called by-pass filters because the oil going to the filter "by-passes" the engine and is returned to the oil galley or oil pan. So, you want to limit the amount of oil by-passing the...

Re: Change 12V Positive Ground to Negative ground

What coil are you using? If possible you need to change the polarity of the coil to match the car polarity. In your case ignition switch to + side of coil and - side of coil to the distributor.
