I’m a flathead fan, but if I had access to that Edsel engine....I’d use it!
I use an anode hanging from my radiator cap on my 53 Merc with Navarro heads. Easy, safe insurance for my heads.
Oh my!....that's friggin awesome Moose!
Thanks.....wish there was something I could do for you.....is there?
That 36 is absolutely stunning!
When you can get to it, I love to see my coupe without bumpers and with and with exhaust pipe coming out just in front of the rear wheel tucked...
Those look good Marty. Kinda like a nose guard on the old football helmets we use to wear.
I had a 63 Galaxie 406 tri power 4spd with 15" steel wheels but it had small hubcabs.
Really liking that bumperless red 40!
I would guess that the high beam wire at the dimmer switch is loose or not connected at the dimmer switch.
sorry....missed the part where it’s...
I’m actually pleased that my 40 Coupe doesn’t have pristine paint. It was last painted in it’s original color in 1972. Over the years, even though...
I’ve been considering sans bumper on my 40 Coupe.
What do y’all think about bumperless hot rod ‘40s?
Replacing draft tube with a PCV setup under the manifold.
Thanks for the information.
Should I use an early 32-48 intake gasket when installing an early manifold on a 8BA flathead or the late 49-53 gasket.
Also, should I use some...
Don’t paint it.....That is an honest Texas truck. I know as Ive spent the last 66 years here. Gibbs is good. You just have to apply it regularly.
Yep....weather is supposed to be very nice out here in west Texas. It’ll be just my wife and I this year....trying to stay ahead of this COVID crap
Thanks Moose.......I like the black wheels much better!
Yours skills are amazing!
Moose, I’d like to see my coupe with Wimbledon White wheels when you’ve a chance.[ATTACH]

Following. I’d vote for some kinda black or maybe even Washington Blue.
Very cool find. There’s not a better looking truck than a 40 Ford ever built.imho
I really like that car!
with separate plenums syncing is imperative with multiple carbs....totally different, but that's the tool I use.
Beaner is correct......but I like to have the same airflow going thru each carb and the mixtures all being close to the same.
Doesn't matter much...
I’ve been using an airflow synchronizer tool called a “snail” for years on my Porsches with Webers. It’s very sensitive and extremely easy to use....
I’m really not too concerned. The engine does have an Isky Max1 cam which is by no means a radical cam. It runs beautifully. I was just curious....
