Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

Re: dist cap problems again

May want to get a can of DeoxIt. I use in vintage guitar amps and equipment. It will clean off the oxidation and brighten up the brass contacts. It's the best stuff I've found.

Re: Flathead Oil Pan

Right on, DD.

To clarify, Gary you have a late Merc. pan and it will work on an 8BA block.

Question: How many Fordbarners does it take to change an oil pan?

Re: Flathead Oil Pan

No, it will fit your 8BA block, we are just not in agreement what it came off of.

Re: dist cap problems again

Are you sure they aren't just patinaed over? Sometimes brass turns pretty dark when oxidized.

Re: Plugs and wires

Is the M250 a truck? If so, it should have the 8RT truck pan with the large clean out plate. I think that drain plug is larger than the ones in a car pan.

Re: dist cap problems again

I think I recall Bubba saying to spray the inside of the cap with WD40 to prevent moisture issues.

Re: Crab distributor vacuum passage o-ring

A while back, Bubba was giving these away for free. He mailed out two o rings to those who inquired. I'm working in the garage, if I find them, you are welcome to one. I'll DM you when I find them.

Re: Anyone run a Lion Head

Hey J:

I'm a hot rodder, so one of the first things I would do is ditch the stock carb set up if I was going to hop up a four banger.

I'm also curious if the mechanical nature of an updraft...

On an OEM drum, that portion of the drum is stamped steel. That center is welded to the cast iron drum surface.
