If the pump is going crazy, it's trying to keep the pressure up but can't. Maybe there's a little piece of something that catches under a valve in the pump and holds it slightly open. My guess though...

It's a good feeling for YOU to be done, but what about the rest of us who have been watching this car unfold. We'll be left restless, fidgety and empty inside. Maybe some of us will even run amok.

35 to 37 doors are inter-changeable, but Skip has a point, newer doors probably have the same bottom, although the beltline reveal and the window surround won't work for you.

A few little things today.
I painted the flywheel dustpan. The holes that I made for the bellhousing hold-down feet are now tapped out to 1/2" coarse thread. While I was doing this and cursing the...

Thank you E-man, I had a lot of fun trying to guess what year of vehicle you are going to tell the registration office it is. Hint, hint, the narrower the cab, the older the car. 1898?

Thanks guys.
There's a lot of welding rod in there, but some little weird shaped iron patches too. I'd be just hanging up the stinger sometimes and I'd hear that dreaded 'ping' or 'klink'. I peened...

Like Bob says, you only need 100 hp to drive a light vehicle around nicely. My '36 Ford had a stock flattie V-8 with about 100 hp and it was quite decent. It's maybe very difficult in your...

I used to look down on all addicts, well, now I know I'm one. Life is funny, sometimes you learn stuff that you don't want to know.

I'm glad to be back on the forum again.
Thank you 28.
I've been cleaning up parts, painting and welding up that rusty old thin-wall exhaust manifold. That is not a job for the faint of heart.

I agree, 28, it's a real hard time for most small businesses. Every year this company has saved me, by providing a weird piece for my many homemade puzzles. I appreciate that.
