Re: New Rebuild Overheating

How did you set the timing? A stock 59 engine has no timing marks. I have a 59 in my pickup. I had to use a vacuum gauge to set the timing because I have a Mallory electronic distributer. I had...

Re: Where does your 53 Ford run?

My Courier runs in the same range. It's a 6 not a V8.

Door stay diagram for 53 Courier

Does any one have a diagram for the door stay on the rear door of a Courier?
I believe the one on mine is missing some parts.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Disc brake question

Did you install a dual master cylinder when the disc were installed. If not the 10 psi residual valve that is built in to the stock master cylinder keeps enough pressure to cause the discs to drag.

The Crusty Flatty is no longer crusty. It sounds pretty good.

Re: 1941 1/2 Ton dimensions?

The biggest difference is the bed width. ‘40/41 are 46” wide as apposed to F1 @ 48”. You can lay a 4x8’ sheet of plywood in a F1 but not in A ‘40/41.

Re: Leaning to one side

On the leaning issue. Make sure the center bolt is seated in the hole in the cross member and both U bolts are tight.

Re: 1940 pickup carpeting?

How did a master cylinder leak destroy the carpet? The stock placement for it is under the floor. BTW the stock floor covering is a rubber mat.

Re: Crusty Flatty Pt28: Lets go for a drive! At last!

Great first run. The more you run it the better it will get. Put about 500 miles on it then determine if it even needs a compression check. A vacuum gauge will tell you a lot in the mean time.
