Re: 52 F1 tranny

"rotorwrench" is right on. I should emphasize that my post was not to point out any special skills or talents I have, but to emphasize that these transmissions are quite simple and can be...

Damn, I'm already back in Minnesota, or that would be a plan!

Re: 52 F1 tranny

C'mon, if it's just that you think you lack the skill, that's probably not the problem. 25 years ago, I bought a '46'48 transmission at a local swap, a '39 case and top from Hemmings, and as many new...

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

"Tinker" may be correct when he refers to a 2000 electric vehicle; "GM" is correct if the vehicles involved were 2020.

Re: High Oil Pressure

I believe that 55 psi is the proper high pressure. That's what I have on both of my engines. The fact that you have 60 is probably not a problem. It may be caused by running the heavier diesel oil....

Re: 8BA back under way.

Methinks "Tod" is quite busy with his Model "A" stuff, given the lack of response from him. I fear success there has taken it's toll on the 8BA project.

Too bad.

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

I give up. This thread has gone completely off-topic, which is bad enough, but now, someone one is asking me to get my scientific information from YouTube?

Back to old Fords, please.

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

The desired result in all of this is to eliminate the emissions caused by the production of energy. There are huge amounts produced by the burning of fossil fuels, but virtually none from solar and...

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

Well, they have been able to fly a solar powered electric airplane around the world. I know it was slow and took a while, but you have to start somewhere. Now that it has been proven possible, it's...

Re: Starting an engine after almost 40 years

I have always found that it is much easier to get an engine started and running if you can rig up a "regular" fuel supply (either from a gravity fed auxiliary tank or the original tank and pump). It...

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

This is all a bunch of irrelevant banter. Economics will drive this (like it has always done), and it looks like electric automobiles will prevail; people buy what works for them. Do you really think...

Re: PNW Flathead Rebuilders

I think the first thing you should do is determine exactly which early engine you have. There is no such thing as a 1941 59A. The "5" designates the year of introduction, in this case 1945. If it is...

Re: Crab distributor vacuum passage o-ring

Go to any well stocked hardware store. I am sure that you will be able to find something suitable in the large selection of "O"-rings most good stores carry.

Re: ID air filter please

From the looks of things, it sure looks like it relates. We started with the opinion that it was "'49-'53 Ford" and have since seen (or heard about) around 6 different varieties, and I bet we've just...

Re: 1949 Merc distributor maintenance

I had one that broke inside the insulation. That one took a few weeks to figure out. Since the insulation was intact, it was very intermittent.

Re: ID air filter please

Does yours have smooth top or does it have the radial ribs? Notice that the picture "Tinker" posted has 4 "inny" ribs, while the one "Kube" posted as 6 "outy" ribs. Different plants or suppliers?...
