Battery Tenders

For years I have used a Battery Tender to keep my Optimas fully charged. Worked well for years. This was a box about 4x5x6, or close. Well, I think it finally bit the dust, at least the battery did....

Re: Trick to remove OFF ON ignition plate

I used a dremmel tool with a cut off disc to cut a screw driver slot in the head of the pin and "unscrewed" the pin. Worked like a charm. (I couldn't do that now as my hands are too shaky.)

Re: 1936 Ford V8 Service/Restoration Thread

Nice looking 36. I see nothing wrong with the car other than the accessory grill guard. That is not a Ford authorized accessory, but I sort of like them myself. Welcome to the barn.

Re: Spring clamp torque value?

You young fellers need to understand something. Old Ford mechanics or shade tree mechanics didn't use torque wrenches. We just tightened the nuts up till they felt right and went with it. Don't...

Re: Gas Tank Fuel Gauge reading question

What a useless discussion. What difference does it make? The car ain't going nowhere on water, regardless of what the gauge reads. ROFLMAO

Re: Anyone use these drill/tap all in one?

I have found that most tools made to do more than one thing are as useless as tits on a bore hog. Drill your hole with a drill bit. Tap your threads with a tap.

Re: Upper Steering Column Bearing

Get the "Brucegard" (I think is his name). That is probably the one on Amazon. Far superior to the wheel barrow bearings. Well worth the money. I have his bearing in my 35 Pickup Icon. Lawson.
