    Terry go to Vince Falters site (fordgarage.com).. He has detailed instructions on how to pull the tube out. I have pulled several out following his instructions with no problems.
    Caution when removing them.. there is a small disc/washer and compression spring at the bottom of the tube. They function to prevent damaging the GAV jet from over tightening.

    Cabriolet top question
    by ES2Rider
    Hi, I have a '31 68B and yhe top was only partially assembled when I got the car.
    The problem is where the inner brace bolts onto the landau bracket on the middle bow.
    If I tighten it it will bend the brace, it seems there might be a shouldered bolt with spacers.
    Can anyone post a picture of how this is attached.
    Thanks ...

    So, after all this fitutzin' around with my leaky "B" carb, I finally figured out where it's leaking. I don't know the correct name for it, but I'll try to accurately describe it. It's the brass tube that doubles as a guide for the choke rod. The carb was dry and I put it back on the engine and I noticed it was weeping and wet shortly after letting the gas through. The closest thing I can...

    Be careful with heat, because of the bearing and felt. I would much rather see you beat it out of there cold. As you probably know the front side of the axle could be chamfered to accept the locking wedge. Hopefully this does not turn in to a can of worms. If you do use heat, concentrate it in that pin area, don’t go crazy. It is also possible that your axle is backwards and the chamfer got. switched...

    My king pin retaining pins/bolts have been installed backwards. They were inserted from the rear of the axle and the nut/steering stop is on the front.

I removed the nut and lock washer, reinstalled the nut loosely with...

    Never seen him in concert. It makes you feel older as the iconic performers start passing. I think of the song "Who's gonna fill their shoes" by George Jones.

    Earlier this year my insurance co sent me a refund check due to less driving from covid. Then last month I was sent a letter from them saying my rates would also be dropping by 10% due to covid. I find it crappy that yours went up by that much....

    Finally cool enough to work (109 in the shade 😜)

    First back-flush on the radiator and engine for me since purchasing. No overheating - but something I’ve been waiting to do as I go through the car. Thanks to Wade and everyone’s posts I’ve been through figuring out the best solution

    Little bit of rust, previous distilled water looked like apple juice fine sediment...

    Clutch finger adjustment
    by Dennis
    I have a friend that ordered a clutch adjustment gauge tool along with some other parts. It measures 11/16 and their description says 13/16”. So what’s it supposed to be?!?! I could go on about all the parts I’ve gotten from all the vendors that are wrong lately. How can they screw up on a steering arm bolt? One size too small and over 1/2” to short.

    I figure about the only thing that could cause a problem with a Zenith when I'm out is a bit of junk in a jet so I only carry the couple of special tools to take it apart and repair it. I recall doing that once using the running boar as a workbench Blocked jet). Two carloads of German tourists happened by and couldn't believe what they were seeing. They stuck around long enough for me to put it back...

    Ed, I had Jim rebuild 3- Zenith Carbs for me. The ones I sent him I didn't think could be rebuilt but he did an excellent job. I attached one before photo of the worst one and a photo of the finished job. The carb that is rusted bad is the one on the right in the finished photo. He was excellent and fast. I highly recommend him! Hugh...

    That's a darn shame. I've only been to it a couple of times but absolutely loved it, had a blast. There's nothing to compare it is a great time if you like antique cars. You get to see them running and hear them, it's not just a static car show. Plus all the people in era attire, old bicycles, old time treats, really cool.

    That's not a bad price, and I see you have Agreed Value THAT'S the key.

    I was in Business Law classes many years ago in my youth (!) and they were taught by an Attorney. On the lectures on Insurance I recall him saying very specifically ..............
    'Shop around occasionally for a better rate. The Ins. Companies use their actuary tables and play the odds. If you haven't had a...

    Got this from the printers today. It is the first proposal for the front cover. I am asking for some size changes and a few color changes, but it will most likely be very similar to this.
