Re: Tom Trautwein

I know Walter was an honest person, don't know a lot about his son. I used to talk with them at Hershey each year as they had a lot of old Ford parts as well as items they made. Everyone I know...

Re: 41 helmet clearances

Just about anything to be done on a helmet distributor should be done on the bench then
final adjustments on a machine like a Sun or Allen. Seeing the rotor gaps on the lower contacts would be a...

Re: Successful local Swap Meet today South WA State

The quarter patches and tail are relatively easy, the rusted off rain gutters is a HUGE job to fix right. Think Kube's current picture! The gutters are on a flange that is sandwiched and welded...

Re: Columbia O/D

I always level my car on jack stands, then as Columbia instructions state, run it in the gear prescribed for the time specified. Then quickly get under and check the level and add as needed before...

Re: possible interest in another new restoration project? '40 convertible

Huge indeed. 90% of the cars in primer are that way because the owner can't do or won't pay for what it takes to put shiny paint on the car. Especially black or dark colors. Certainly any of your...

Re: possible interest in another new restoration project? '40 convertible

After removing thousands of spot welds, you get really good at it!!
While the owner will have about the same amount of money in it in the end, at least he is having you fix a car with major...

Re: crash

Well, if you have no permanent damage to yourself (which I REALLY HOPE), that is most important. Truly sad. I wouldn't think a Suzuki could harm an old Ford that seriously which should have...

Re: 1937 to 1941 replacement drag link

Re: LH 1940 Convertible "Peep Mirror"

Looks good. I put clamp on ones on my 33 phaeton top irons and they give me a bit of confidence while driving. I also used 3" mirrors and a convex one on the right side. I didn't have to drill any...

Re: 1933/34 dual gauge temp sender unit (hose part).

Not that long ago I got what you are talking about from Randy at a gauge place in Arizona.
The same place that can repair the temp gauge part.

Re: Winfield Tool KRW Hub Puller

My question is how can that puller work if it doesn't push on the end of the axle? My real KRW puller has a nut that screws onto the end of the axle to push against. Is that what was being talked...

Re: spacer for a 39 flathead fan

I have a 19A fan that is about 3/4" longer then the 91A, maybe you could look for one of them if that is the distance you need (or PM me if it would work for you, I would sell it)

Re: Cam clean-up?

I would think to be usable it would need to be reground. Probably could be done to 8CM specs. Cam Grinders is in Seattle, Delta in Tacoma. Might be cheaper to find a better one.
Good Luck!

Re: Thermostats, To Use or Not to Use

My flathead in my avatar roadster doesn't run well until it is above 150. I don't even try to drive it until it gets there. Running 180 stats and it RARELY goes above that to 190. It is my opinion...

Re: Please drive your 33-34 Ford today in honor of my friend from Texas
