1908 Model SR horn bracket

Unique to 1908 Model SR Fords per period price list, this original horn bracket came into my possession when I was collecting parts to complete a Model SR which I subsequently sold. I puchased the bracket on eBay for more than my $150 asking price. Price includes shipping. 20200828_132324.jpg Richar...

Re: Head Gasket Failures

Its not just the headgaskets! The copper clad manifold gaskets and the copper washers use what appear to be the same filler material. I had an intake leak I was unable to cure after six tries using one or the other. Finally resolved with period asbestos copper clad gaskets.

Just hard to believe. Had plenty of phone calls with Charley over the years. He wanted to pass on his secrets for changing a later block to a 1909 10 open valve but was disappointed when he learned I was damn near as old he was!

Carb issues

When I am driving down the road and throttle down before coming to a stop, the engine rhythmically surges. Not heavy but noticeable. It doesn't do that when I increase the throttle above an idle position while still slowing down. It also doesn't do that with the car slowing down in neutral. I've not...

Bruce the engine was finished initially in October. A total rebuild. When I ran it, I discovered the os pistons were hitting the head. I decided to remove the engine and go thru it again fearing the piston contact had bent the rods. I was right . Two of the four were bent so I realigned them. I beve...

Re: Intake Manifold Leak

I was advised to use carb cleaner and it worked. Ran the engine at high idle and sprayed where the manifold contacts the block. If there's a leak, you'll hear an obvious stumbling. Worked very well for me thanks to a suggestion from a forum member.
