    Boiling fuel

    Also cured the sticky centrifical advance, replaced the vacuum advance and set initial timing at 4btc (was 0). Sometimes I forget the basics! Runs cooler, more power and no boiling fuel

    Boiling fuel

    Since I installed the heat shield and improved cooling air flow, I am no longer having the issue. Thanks for all the info

    Boiling fuel

    Have been having an issue with fuel boiling in the carburetor with heat soak after shut down. 1940 Chrysler Windsor. I removed lower pans from either side of the motor to improve air flow, and installed a heat shield between manifolds and carburetor. So far, so good

    rear u-joint, 1940 c-25

    Looking for a rear u-joint for my c-25 (mechanics cross style) Looks like my only hope is going to be a spare that one of you might have acquired over the years as they are quite obsolete thanks

    Steering box adjustment

    I bought a 47 ford pickup last year. P.O. had replaced a bearing in the steering box. Steered extremely stiff. Found out he forgot to put oil in it nope, filled it with power punch, set up the clearance, no leaks, steers ok. Don’t think the P.O. drove it much

    Antifreeze and your car

    I tried Evans in my 1961 Mercedes. Pooped a freeze plug right out of the block after years of never having any kind of problems with 50/50 antifreeze and water. end of experiment I still have a gallon if anybody wants it (free)

    Removing Rear Brake Drums

    I have a puller similar to the fourth one pictured. Was my grandpas and just like the one I used as a kid 50 years ago when there were more of these fine automobiles around Always had success whacking the barbell with a hammer, until My 1940 Chrysler. a 3/4 inch impact wrench took care of that problem. Made a heck of a bang when the taper finally let go!
