  1. When I restored my 48 Ford Conv. I sandblasted frame and used POR-15.  Today I can take a hamper and hit it hard and will not chip off.  I bought an enclosed trailer from the South. Was shipped to Maine and rusted on way. I wire brushed the bad rust and used POR-15,  Messy to work with but won't have to think about rust again. Bad part is no reducer with take it off your skin. have to wear it off. Wonderful paint. You do have to top coat if out in sun. Good Luck

  2. Jeff,

     

    I just talked to an old timer that stills works on Old car gen and starters.  He was going to do some research on using another armature in my starter. Do you know how he can do it. I',m afraid over time the 6 volt starter so fast that something is going to break. Had to have to replace ringear. Thanks for any help.

  3. I did the same on my 26 Sedan and 27 Woodie, I used a 40's chev carb. had to make an adapter because throat size was different. I put in an electric fuel pump and pressure regulator and runs on about 3 1/2 pounds pressure. Never ran so good. Never did hitch up choke. Didn't need it. Also used a 28 Dist. had to change back of gen. to a 28 back end plate. That why I can buy ignition parts anyplace

  4. To  19tom40  I checked measurement on center of shaft to front of case and it was 2".  When I bolted pressure plate and disc to flywheel the three pressure plate fingers go quite a distance towards flywheel. When I push clutch pedal down the throw out bearing doesn't hit the fingers. My throw out bearing is new is about 1" thick. I am wondering if I have the wrong one. Too bad throw out my old one. The clutch disc is same thickness as old one. If the fingers didn't go in towards flywheel I think it would work. I have tried 2 old pressure plates and clutch disc and have same problem. I have adjusted clutch leakage as far as it goes. Call Van plett but were closed today. Got an old FORd mechanic coming to look at it Sat. Do you have any ideas. thanks for your help. I have replaced clutch years ago and had no problems.
