Re: 59L startup oil pressure at crank speed.

flow through the bearings. Good point Ron. I may swap the 15W-40 for a lower viscosity.

Re: 59L startup oil pressure at crank speed.

Good point Ron. Shell Rotella 15W-40. Would a lighter oil be better idea, especially since the weather has turned cooler hear in MA. I do plan to put the engine in a heated area before startup.

Re: 1940 Ford Coupe Headliner Question

See if you can get a list of the former authorized LB installers in your area. They could probably help.

1949 Ford State Police car

Question, was there typically anything unusual about a 1949 Ford used by State police in that era. How about the generator, any additional output & part # if so. Thank you Fordbarners

Re: Carb gasket surface

Vern Tardels book, How to Build a Traditional Ford Hot Rod, on page 112 shows how Vern dresses carb surfaces w/400-grit paper on a sheet of glass. That should be testimony enough.

Re: Ford V belts - 39-38

Thank you for your responses. I am not concerned with the length of the belts, just the width measured at the top outside edge. .600 to .650 may be some metric number, but it's a lot closer to .625...

Early Ford V-8 Club of America

I haven't seen an edition of the V8 Times for months. Anyone received one lately ? I was wondering if I fell off the list or the plague has disrupted the process.
