1934 Phaeton

  Views: 653   Comments: 30

Well been 30 years plus that I owned this car and just keep pushing it to the side and building something else . Now redoing the top as it's been used for a shelve over the years not that anybody would do that . So cut the bent bows out and welding new bows in as this top was made from scratch 25 years ago , Now laying up some fiberglass for the edges and got some flat panels from a fiberglass place that made some boat tops . ...

Tri Power Linkage

  Views: 90   Comments: 3

How do I change this tri power linkage just a little bit. I need to move it's at rest position about 1 16th of a turn forward. The rear carb arm is just barely hitting the linkage assembly that bolts to the manifold on my Y Block. If you have ever seen a y block with an automatic, this is not something a person needs to be trying to reengineer. Looks like there are two allen screws on each arm, but I have zero instructions....

Fuel pressure solved

  Views: 51   Comments: 1

It appears the problem with the fuel pressure isn't fuel pressure, its the pressure gauge. The first question the Holley rep asked was if I had a liquid filled gauge. I have a liquid filled Russell fuel pressure gauge. He said the issue is that the gauge isn't vented and the temperature differences are what's causing the pressure to appear to drop. After I talked to him I googled the issue and there are no end of threads talking about the same issue and how to correct it by draining the flui...

Wierd starting issue

  Views: 193   Comments: 11

I'm having trouble with the starting of my '37. It's a GM Factory 430 hp crate engine, but the cam has been changed to a Comp Cams Thumper cam. The car has never been on the road, but the engine has been broken in on the engine dyno and has run in the car. It has a Holley electric fuel pump, which I also have questions about. I've had it running and have set the total timing to 34 degrees with the vacuum advance disconnected (highest hp on engine dyno). It has the factory HEI distributor. ...

What is the deal Put a price on it

  Views: 168   Comments: 3

Just got back from a week in Biloxi cruising the coast. We had a great time and so many cars. There were close to 10K registered cars this year and thousands more that were just cruising the highway. As I walked around looking at all the cool rides I am just amazed by the for sale signs with no prices on the car. Why would you not put down the price? Are you thinking some idiot is going to walk up and say hey let me pay you two times what I think the car is worth. Good luck with that. Help me he...

Alternate to fender welting

  Views: 159   Comments: 4

I've fitted the fenders (and other components) to be a nice tight fit without using welting between the body and the fender (rear fender for example). The fit is nice and tight with no gaps, but it feels like there should be something in between the two to stop chafing etc, but thin enough to not create a gap or show from the outside. I've wondered about something like "peel and stick" membrane or even some of the static cling clear vinyl. I use the static cling on the outside of the body to ...

New Hot rod in the garage for the wife

  Views: 192   Comments: 9

Really solid car with no patch panels as I've had some of the interior panels out and door panel off where the old owner slipped and fell into right after I bought it from him .So had my good friend that does dinks and dent repair come out and he got it out . Really thought I was going to have to paint it . So another new guy in town pulled some lines on the car in One Shot colors blue and purple ...

Foamy Oil in new Crate Engine

  Views: 117   Comments: 5

I pulled the valve covers off my new crate engine this morning (it's Chev 350, 385 hp version that GM bumped up to the 430 hp version for me and I changed the cam after that. It turned 456 hp on the engine dyno).and found heavy foam on the inside of the valve covers. The car hasn't been on the road yet, but the engine was broken in on the engine dyno. I did have the intake off to change the cam, otherwise, nothing has been touched. It's had maybe an hours worth of running in the car while se...

Power Steering issue

  Views: 186   Comments: 9

Power Steering issue. Just installed a power steering conversion kit on a 1959 Chevy. Installed the new pump, Hoses and gear box. Filled the pump, Started the car and ran the car for 30 minutes around the neighbor hood with no issues. When I got back to the house I let the car idle and there is no power steering. Once you come off idle the steering is back. I pulled the pump and checked the bypass valve. No issues reinstalled. Drove the car again the system worked great for about 20 minutes. Whe...

Electric Fuel pump question

  Views: 91   Comments: 4

I have a Holley red top electric fuel pump 12-801-1 in my '37. In the instructions it says "Provides constant fuel flow with no pulsation". Does that mean it runs constantly when the ignition is on? Mine runs constantly even if the engine is off and the ignition is on. I have a regulator in the supply line, and the pressure doesn't continue to build, stays constant at 6 lbs, but I would have thought it would shut off when it reaches pressure. I don't have a return line with this model....

Installing Kill Switch

  Views: 273   Comments: 9

I'm about to install a kill switch in my '37 as well as charging lugs. They will be mounted close to each other in the trunk. Most kill switches I've seen put the switch in the positive lead, but I'm wondering if the negative lead might be better? In an accident, if the back of the kill switch touches the body, when in the positive lead, it will short out the system, where if the switch is in the negative lead, nothing would hurt if it touches the body. I guess in the end the charging lugs c...

Searching for my Dads T Bucket

  Views: 439   Comments: 3

Hello. My name is Zack Methvin of Longview, Texas. I desperately need your help in searching for my Dad's scratch built 1923 T-bucket roadster that he built in the mid 70's when we lived in Jackson, MS. I have been searching for this car for over 10 years and would love to get it back.

After completing the car in 1979, Dad sold it to a man who at the time owned North Jackson Honda-Yamaha in Jackson, MS where it remained until approx. 1989. The car then sold again to a another local area...
