Re: Where did Tom Wesenberg post go!

I was banned initially because of an email address mixup. It was actually TomW who vouched for me and got me unbanned.

Re: Christmas decorations.

Zip-tied wreaths are sturdy and can be left on all month.

Re: Oil Filters

The A50 is the one Y-Blockhead has, it has been discontinued and replaced by the B50. You can still find the A50 on some sites, but supplies will eventually run out.

Re: Oil Filters

Ford part M-6880-B50. You can buy it lots of places for $130-$150. Kinda expensive for the minor convenience, in my opinion.

Re: What makes value?

This was discussed at the time, the logos on the vehicle are from a coal delivery business and it was bought by a modern fuel delivery business. Consensus was that the buyer was willing to pay a...

Re: Hagerty Insurance

Hopefully nothing. At least two insurance conglomerates are taking a big stake in them, so the pessimistic outlook is that they'll start to act more like State Farm and less like themselves.

Re: State of things: 21" radials

My understanding is that they do work, but the valve stems need washers to work with the Model A wheels and the stem is threaded.

Re: wrong rotor position

I believe it was .020 when I took these photos. This was part of an experiment I did to test timing via multimeter and the Nu-Wrench on both the stock and Nu-Rex upper plates. I had two distributors...

Re: wrong rotor position

This is mostly good advice, but I will say that in my experience, using the Nu-Rex wrench with the Nu-Rex upper plate produces slightly different timing than using it with the stock plate. The Nu-Rex...

Re: wrong rotor position

OK, the Nu-Rex upper plate is pretty easy to time visually with a B distributor cam. At TDC, looking down from the top, the upper edge of the cam slot should align with the lower edge of the rubbing...

Re: State of things: 21" radials

I've only had them out on the road a few times, but it was really nice. A huge improvement over my decades-old dry-rotted bias-ply tires.

The main downside is that some of the tubes seem to have a...

Re: Exhaust manifold glands

Measure as many times as you like, I didn't think I had to spell it out in detail.

Re: Exhaust manifold glands

The way I did it was to seat the rings one by one in both the block and the manifold, and then use calipers to measure the amount of ring protruding from the surface at the highest point for each...

Re: wrong rotor position

It'd be helpful to see a top-down picture of the distributor with the engine at TDC and you having just re-timed it according to whatever procedure you normally use. One picture with the rotor on and...

Re: Accelerator Linkage Modification

Re: Blue Ribbon Restorations

What I've heard from some folks is that it got significantly more expensive to compete in F/P in the last two decades, for a number of reasons:

Re: Blue Ribbon Restorations

I think F/P restoration is best understood as a contest between the restorer and entropy. To win top points, you have to erase, individually and by hand, the effects of 90+ years of weathering, poor...
