Power Steering issue

  Views: 371   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: 264   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: 457   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: 688   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...

LED's and Cruise Control

  Views: 561   Comments: 7

After a friend told me my '48 Ford's brake lights were hard to see, I replaced the 1157 bulbs with taillight lenses that have 40 LED's embedded in each lens and plug into the 1157 socket. I've got really bright tail and brake lights now,but the cruise stopped working. I've Googled the issue and found that I probably need to install a resistor so the cruise is fooled into thinking the old 1157 bulbs are there. Has anyone tried this and does it work? The car has a Rostra Ultra Cruise II....

From Vac to 12V Wiper System

  Views: 504   Comments: 7

I got caught in the rain again with my 57 Ford a couple of weeks ago. I use Rainex, but there is still nothing like having good wipers when those big fat raindrops are coming down. My vacuum wipers work, but they are still lees than adequate. I can't see spending $110 on another vacuum wiper motor, just to end up with the same thing. The vacuum assist on the fuel pump, to me does very little. So I ordered the kit to convert the system over to 12V.

I have the switch installed, and the...

47 Ford Coupe

  Views: 246   Comments: 0

I'm in the process of repainting my 47 Ford coupe. My old trunk lid is beyond repair. I think a 41 - 48 Ford coupe fits or a Mercury will work. Can you guys help me find one? I have been chasing down all leads I get and so far found a lot of Sedans. Even found a 46 Ford Tudor sedan with a factory flathead 6 cyl. in it. I think they are kind of rare. But if you guys could help me out would be great... ...

Exhaust Advice Needed 1

  Views: 1245   Comments: 10

I have a hole about the size of a quarter in one of the mufflers on my Skyliner. I went to an out of town auction a few weeks ago, in Marietta, and of course the ride home was getting a little louder as I got nearer to home. This car has the exhaust that runs through the x-frame. Waldorn has a nice system, and they have optional muffler tones. Waldron wants $120 to send it to me from Michigan to Ohio, so the system already is kinda pricey, and in my mind, that puts it over the top.

Drain Plug Issues

  Views: 394   Comments: 6

Drain Plug Issues. So I noticed a spot of oil under a classic car that I just bought. Looks to be the drain plug leaking. Man I bought the car from said the gasket was bad on the drain plug. I put the car on the rack and started to remove the drain plug. The drain plug as hand tight. And yes the gasket was Missing. No Gasket at all.

I just do not understand how the drain plug was only hand tight. Could have been a major issue. So I replaced the gasket and here is a novel idea use a wrench t...
