Re: Is it just me?

Regardless if you have the heater on or off, the 180 stat should hold a
minimum temp of around 180 on that side. You are correct that if you are seeing 160 or so, the stat is probably stuck open. An...

Re: transmission question

Why not consider a Volvo overdrive unit? It's smaller than the Mitchell and just as strong. I've only seen one in a '39 and it didn't require modification of the floor.

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Just a shot in the dark here so don't laugh. Is the cam gear a press on? If so, could it have slipped to cause this problem? If it is a bolt on cam gear and possibly slotted, could it have moved?

Re: Airtex E8902

Here's a "work around" that will enable you to use

that pump. I think I picked this up off the "Barn" a
