    Great pictures Bill.

    Look at that oil drain catcher, quite the setup to stumble over, but then, 2 guys to work the car, one front, one rear would lessen the chances of that.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      To me it looks like it's an undercoating place..

        The first picture shows 2 swing out oil drain basins, the guy on the left looks to be greasing, and the guy on the right is filling the rear end.

          Well, there is just something about that #4 picture that tells me that is not a Ford. I'm not sure what it is, nor do I know what the two parts circled are, but I'm not convinced that is a Ford.

          Bill, thanks for the pictures, very interesting reading on the "Upstarter" and I hope it came with a new different starter switch because even the very early switched had a kicked back angle to the push button.

            Look at the firewall. That is indeed a model A sedan. The two items in the red circles are Trafficators, which many countries required as turn signals. I dont know what country this assembly plant was in, but the car is left hand drive.

            That firewall looks funny to me, too. And is that Hitler on the far right?

            The caption on the picture indicates that the items circled are trafficators (i.e.: turn signals)

          OK, it does look like he is undercoating or power washing. One of my jobs at the dealership was undercoating new cars. That was a very messy job, even with a full face mask and plastic taped all around it. Nothing could save the cars from the evil road salt.

            If that is what he is doing they are all breathing the stuff in including the customers. What about the over spray on the cars next to it? The sign over the center bay says "lubeseal" hmmm

          Not much interest in this posting, so I will add one more batch and quit.

          I am hoping to identify the year and make of this car. I have been told it is a Ford.

          Valve lubrication, or not!
          by DaWizard
          I have been seeing folk getting all over MMO and questioning the reason for using it. Well, I think it is time to clear a bit of air within these airheads and explain why MMO or Seafoam, or these top end lubricants are almost a must.

          If you will take a look at this picture of the valve chamber, you will see to the right a copper tube protruding from the bottom of the valve valley. Well,...

          Tracer Dye
          by Beauford
          So I was putting a new gasket on valve cover and upon opening cover I notice the oil is kinda a baby poop yellow-orange? I freak and drain the oil. It doesn't look right to me at all being I just start my project a couple times a week and tinker. I had used trace dye for my small rear leak. I'm wondering if this caused the coloration? I am a fanatic about opening rad and seeing fluid at same level...

          Dropped sump, found metal
          by Hoogah
          Just dropped the sump (looking for the source of an oil leak around the rear main bearing) and found some metal under the baffle at the front that I can’t identify. A couple of the pieces are fairly substantial - the biggest one is around 20mm Long and 5mm thick. Any clues on where to go looking? The engine has been running OK with no odd noises. It has an engine reconditioner label on the side,...

          New oil container
          by Big hammer
          Bought oil from Walmart, picked up the wrong weight, took it back to get the right weight. No problem but the young lady said the cap is leaking, she opened it and what was inside was OLD DRAIN OIL !
          They made it right but I felt like a heel/crook
          So after paying for oil, in fronf of the clerk, I'm going to open the container and check for new clean oil this point forward!

          Al, we really need a fresh thread to get this going, so here it is. I am very interested in the way you did that, and it looks so simple.

          I like period photos
          by Ray Horton
          Here is a Model A Ford on E. Allen St. in front of the Oriental Saloon, Tombstone Arizona, in 1932. Wyatt Earp dealt Faro in the Oriental in 1880, and was owned by him, a Mr. Clark, and a Mr. Rickabaugh. I am including a photo of their business card as well (with Wyatt's name misspelled). Descendants of Mr. Rickabaugh, who was also known as Wild Dave Rudabaugh, are good friends of mine here in Portland,...

          Found some Old Pictures
          by kevinf
          Yesterday, my wife and I were helping her parents move and we found an old box in the attic of her grandpa's photos. We have no idea whatever happened to the car or when exactly these pictures were taken, but I thought I would share with the group. We do know though that this was his first car as it was written on the back of the photos. We are going to have the originals blown up and made into...

          Oil Leak
          by CarlLaFong
          Well, after some, in depth, diagnosis, it seems my "oil leak" is, mostly coolant. I can't tell precisely where its coming from. The car has a pressurized system and an overflow added so I'll have to get it up to temp and have a look see. It is leaking oil from the rear main, as well. I think I'll drop the pan and Plastigauge it. I have a rather steep, long driveway here at The Fongderosa...
