Re: So why did Ford go from 21" wheels to 19" wheels?

The trend continued. 18" in '32, 17", in 34, 16" in '35, 16",

Richard 15" in '49 and 14" sometimes after that.

Now the trend has reversed.

It is common...

Re: Early Oil Pan Wowes

I don't know if I would want to use it on a later engine. Those are pretty tiny oil reservoirs,

Re: Early Oil Pan Wowes

Chris, I guess I did misunderstand. I have never heard of or seen one which doesn't mean there never was one.

Re: top of radiator shroud hot

It's unlikely you actually mean shroud. They only came on '28 and were usually thrown away with the engine pans. Do you actually mean radiator cap, top tank of the radiator, or radiator shell?

Re: Economical and effective hydraulic brake conversion.

Re: No compression but starts and drives???

Sounds like gauge problem. It certainly won't run with 0 compression and the power sounds reasonable. Don't start tearing it apart. Drive it and borrow someone's gauge.
