Re: 33 5w coupe rear window drain tube.

David, are you talking of the hole circled in red? In my coupe there is a clip where I have circled in green which still has the remnants of a hose in it. It's hard to tell for sure, but there looks...

Re: 33 5w coupe rear window drain tube.

My 33 5W has a pipe clamp on the rear wheelwell to guide the drain pipe. I'm not sure where the pipe is supposed to exit, but it appears to dump out behind the rear quarter onto the rear part of the...

Fun at Mart's. Ol' 59 Flatty! 32 Sedan! Plus vintage machinery!

Hey, hey, hey, welcome to Marts garage. I start making good progress with the Ol 59 flatty, but it's a case of two steps forward and one step back as I make an unwanted discovery. I bust out the...

Re: 1942 Mercury rebuild vlog

It looks like a great start. You have some great parts to go in it as well. I love all that old ex military stuff.

Re: E 3 spark plugs

I'm with Mike (35fordTN) I worked at an auto manufacturer and they go to any length to squeak every bit of fuel economy or lower emissions even by the tiniest bit. If some fancy spark plugs would...

Re: Thread - I screwed up

If you have a reliable temp gauge you could always rig an override switch so you can turn it on manually if stuck in traffic on a hot day and start feeling nervous. I have electric fans on my three...

Fun at Mart's. Ol' 59 Flatty. 32 Sedan. 33 Coupe. Let's have a cracking time!

Hello! Welcome to this week's nonsense from Mart's Garage. I play with the Ol' 59 flatty. I finally receive the shocks for the 32 sedan and guess what? They're no good. I do a bit on the 33 coupe,...

Re: NGK Plugs

Personally I wouldn't use a gap as big as .035. The HT side of the ignition can be a weak point and the spark will try and go anywhere except across that plug gap. It takes a lot more energy to jump...

Re: Anyone use these drill/tap all in one?

I think they're made for home gamers with a hand held drill/driver, Sam, not an automatic tapping head in a milling machine.

Re: Anyone use these drill/tap all in one?

Not used them, but have seen them reviewed on Youtube. The problem is you need to go fast for the drill and slow for the tap. I think they are ok in relatively thin metal. For example, how can you...

Re: 1937 Ford V8 Steering Box Bushes

The split is just a consequence of the way they are made. It's a flat sheet rolled into a tube shape. The material is probably a lamination and would be produced flat.

Re: Head skimming: Any tips?

Thanks for all the input guys. I did a test and it is ok-ish. I think as my mill is so lightly used it is ok re sag, but just holding the head is the difficult part. I'm working on something else...

Re: Temperature wire

Are you talking about a mechanical gauge with a capillary tube? If so no you can't cut it.

If you are not sure of the correct term for a thing, try and post a picture, we can help if we can...

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

Here's an idea. As you have bolts nearby, why not make a plate with a hex hole in the middle that drops over the bolt head and then has the other bolts going through it to lock it in place? Or some...

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

A steel bolt in a steel nut of suitable grade of steel will achieve the numbers quoted above, but as it is being screwed into a cast iron crank snout would a lower value be more appropriate? I am...

Re: Brake Tools

Just look for brake pliers or brake spring pliers on ebay. Should be less than 10 bucks.

Re: what years would a pickup bed from a 1938 Ford 1/2 ton fit?

It'd probably fit a 41 too, though the V8 tailgate would be strictly incorrect for that year.
