Re: No Oil Pressure While Cranking

Do you have a mechanical gauge on it? If you are cranking it with the switch in the off position the stock gauge wouldn't be in play. I would try it again, I don't think those stock oil filters get...

Re: Oil pressure with remote oil fllter

Also make SURE you don't get the hoses mixed up between where they leave and then re enter the block. I know of at least 1 engine that ran for a couple of days before locking up due to this. The...

Re: Remove rear quarter on Woody

Lots of mortise and tenons in these wooden crates! They usually have a big machine screw into a T nut or big wood screw into the tenon. The exterior stainless caps are over a standard T nut.

Re: 1934 Ford auction results

As I said before, if I was in this old car hobby for the money I would sell them all right now because the selling price will only continue down. But I am not, and my son can give them away if he...

Re: '40 Ford visors

To make my 40 coupe driver's side visor "stiffer" I pulled the visor straight off the rod (there is a pointed rod in that goes in the length of it) and put a slight bend in it, pushed the visor back...

Re: installing engine

After verifying it has the correct clutch disk in there and it is lined up with the pilot bearing/bushing, try putting the transmission in gear so the input shaft doesn't move. Then while mating the...

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

I was thinking the same as earlyride, and perhaps the 2 surfaces (crank side and bolt side) of the pulley are not exactly 90 degrees from the centerline which would permit a wobble.
Also, did you...

Re: '47 bucking and stalling, ammeter won't work

It is called a voltage regulator for a reason. I would start there and the wiring to it.

Re: Anyone with the "Dirty Word" knowledge

I believe they have wood sills which 80+ years later can be a problem.

Re: 1932 Ford Vicky

I have fixed WAY worse. Looks solid to me. I have sold a couple of tudor door sets of garnish moldings that were destined to be cut down for a Victoria.

Re: Again?! this time juddering at a stop

Maybe the collar the TO bearing is on is hanging up on the trans front bearing retainer and keeping the clutch engaged somewhat, sometimes more then others. What happens when you stop the car with...

Re: Again?! this time juddering at a stop

My vote is something due to the clutch or clutch linkage. It sounds like what happens when you don't push in the clutch as you come to a stop. Like after driving an automatic and forgetting you are...

Re: 40 deluxe lettering red??

Re: Trunk Operation?

If I am using the trunk in my 40 coupe, I leave the key in the lock. Then everyone tells me I forgot the key in the trunk!

Re: Can Not get Idle Down on Flathead

Some head studs/bolts holes go into the water jacket. That is why you would put sealant on the threads when installing them. To see if maybe the head gasket is blown you should put the bolts back...

Re: Found On Road Dead

Gary, That often happens when you run a hotter coil then the original. Electricity will always go to the "easiest" ground and sometimes it is the shaft in the center of the rotor. Sometimes it is...

Re: Which is easier

"Easiest way" might depend on what tools you have and how much empty space is in your workspace. I pulled the engine out of my Dearborn wagon after only 7 miles without removing anything but the fan...

Re: 1940 ford sportsman?

Agree, of all the 40-48s I am partial to the 41 Mercs. They should have made this one! Looks close to Cloud Mist Gray which I like a lot.

Re: 1940 ford sportsman?

Personally, I can't get past the color. I think the red looks awful with the color of the wood. Maybe he made it out of a roach woodie cowl and pieces of a convertible. Any way you look at it, it...

Re: Close call today fuel everywhere.
