Re: Running Board Acetylene cylinder ?

Marty, I bought my regulator at Hershey last year. Had to buy the tank with the regulator on it, the seller wouldn't separate them. Paid $75.00 for the whole thing. I suggest that some day you go to Hershey and look for one. Just in case you get tired of walking, you can rent an electric wheel chair...

Re: Running Board Acetylene cylinder ?

I am using a similar tank mounted horizontaly on my '14 T for the gas lights, but mine doesn't have a gauge on the bottom. I understand that the acetlyene vendors will not fill a tank with a gauge on the bottom.

Re: U-Joint noise

Yes, the U joint can be broken and the car can still move. One of our club members had that happen. With the original rear end that you installed, did you check it out internally? If not, do you know for sure if it has bronze thrust washers? Thrust washer failure is typical in original rear ends tha...

This is a first class Ford history lesson. We all know bits and pieces of Ford history, but this soon-to-be complete thread is a very good read. Keep up the good work, Rob!

Re: Camshaft Pitting- How much is too much?

With so many original camshafts replaced over the past few years (Think Stipe and Chaffins higher performance cams), there have to be lots of good original cams sitting around that could probably be had for little to nothing. Those would be a big improvement over your pitted cam. JMHO

You might as well remove them since you'll want to check on the Hassler main bolt for wear. You'll have to relieve the tension on the Hasslers anyway & the rest is easy.

Hi Terry, Yes, you'll need to remove the Hasslers to make this spring shackle change as the Hasslers have a quite strong spring tension on them.
