Re: Temperature

This makes perfect sense to me. Given that, generations of car amatuer car enthusiasts will still consider themselves smarter that the engineers who initially designed the vehicles.:rolleyes:

Re: What kind of jack do you carry

I have the stock bumper jack in my '51. It appears to never have been used. I hope there's not a good reason for that.

Re: New member, 1951 f1

Nice lookin' truck. If it were mine, I might change the wheel covers to something more "stockish", but that's about it. Oh yeah, and attempt to fix the perpetual "door handle droop" we see with these...

Re: Convert 6 cylinder tach to 8

A quick look at the Westach web page shows individual models for each cylinder count (4-6-8), so you are probably correct that there is no internal switch.

From what I know about this (from my own...

Re: Condenser

"Jack E/NJ" - I feel I must respond to your statement "not a fake like Tubman peddles". I have always stated that mine were were designed to be replacements when the originals become unavailable. I...

Re: Big Boys Heads

Beautiful work Dale. I guess there are other flatheads beside Fords.

I have one question : "Ol' Ron" is a proponent of moving the spark plug into the transfer area, and for myself, I prefer...

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

I was kinda curious as to what's going on now, but what Ron posted has certainly flip-flopped. I just checked on line and Speedway now wants $1074.99 (!!) for a set of Offenhausers, but only $739.50...

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

Looks to me that the second fin from the front on the bottom row of the driver's side head may be broken off. It looks different from the rest.

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

I wouldn't hazard a guess until I had put a straight-edge on 'em, measured the combustion chambers, and checked all of the threaded holes. Depending on what I found they could be wall art or worth a...

Re: Condenser

There is a guy on the H.A.M.B. that also dissected some failed condensers, and he came to the same conclusion as is outlined in the first link "petehoovey" posted.

Re: Flathead V-8 Starter Rebuilding

Ouch! IIRC, he had a big sign that said "Caveat Emptor" at his swap meet site. Lucky for me, I paid attention when I took eighth grade latin.:rolleyes:

Re: Mail order dual exhaust systems

I see they have "Johnson Style" adjustable lifters.

That doesn't instill a lot of confidence in me.

Re: Crestliner steering Wheel Question

Yeah. Initially, Kaisers were supposed to be front wheel drive; that never happened.

Re: Cubic inch question

I just usually divide by 60 to get litres; it's easier to do quickly in your head. Close counts in hand grenades, horseshoes, and now, engine displacement.;)

Re: Crestliner steering Wheel Question

I have heard this story for a long time (probably at least 30 years ago for the first time). Ever since then, whenever I see a Frazer, I check the steering wheel. I have never seen a wheel like this...

Is it a "tin-side" or conventional block?

Re: 15" Rims

A factor here is whether he wants to run stock hubcaps or not. If not, wheels should be easy to find, from '49-'51 Mercs and a variety of Ford pickups. If so, he is limited to the venerable '48 Merc...

Re: Question for 39 pickup experts

This is about the most obvious scamming method there is. You may want to do a search on spam and read a few of the threads.
