Re: Engine Head decision, what would you do?

Thanks John, I added new coils, new belt, new hoses, checked the timer, drained the tank, radiator and oil and did a general "tune up" on a forgotten car and am ready to paint the old tired-looking motor. Maybe I'll run it and then decide if it needs a new head gasket.

Re: Engine Head decision, what would you do?

Hey gents – the car has never run in my possession, so there are no negative symptoms. I just felt it better to inspect the pistons and valves and get a new head gasket on it and decarbonize at the same time.

Maybe I’ll start with a compression test first.

Engine Head decision, what would you do?

Alright gents, before I go further I want to ask for your opinion, I have my Touring motor stripped down and intended to refresh the components and give her a general going over since the car hasn't been run in years. My plan is to remove the head, clean, inspect and put a fresh gasket and bolts bac...

Suggestion on bending a radiator rod post?

My '15 radiator rod receiver has been slightly bent upwards from a previous owner, and before I do anything I wanted to ask the pros about strength of this part?

Re: Anyone have pics of Gray Tires on T's?

Hey Bob in Texas, are you sure those are the gray tires, they look fairly white to my untrained eyes?

Re: Anyone have pics of Gray Tires on T's?

Thanks guys, that is fascinating and they certainly are in a class all their own. They distinctly don't pop like whites but do look unique from the common black tires.

Thanks again for taking time to post!

Where would this pot metal flapper be located at? Both butterflys are the standard steel and brass type so potmetal is gone, no wire has survived.

Re: How to Identify a Straight Through NH carb?

Well I guess I am selling mine on eBay, I didn't realize it was a straight through NH. If you want a nice solid complete one- take a peek.

Thanks for the help ID'ing them, I had no idea how to tell them apart.

How to Identify a Straight Through NH carb?

Can anyone help me identify an NH carburetor and what is the way to ID a straight through carb?

Is it as simple as being able to see through it? Or are there salient features from the side to look for?

Thanks,

I found a bunch of these and my car had three on four of the tube stems, I wanted to ask if this was standard Ford equipment and should be on every stem?

Re: Best way to clean nickel hubcaps?

I ended up doing a very light wire wheeling with a soft wire, then buffing and polishing by hand. They turned out decently, and my car is a go car not a show car. They'll do just fine, take a peek.
