Re: Oil in my coolant! Rusty 37 Master 06/06/23 04:12 PM
The key to troubleshooting this is to investigate all the areas where the oil and coolant can mix.

Ole's suggestion is very good. The oil line that goes through the head to send oil to the rocker arms passes through the coolant that is circulating in the head.

I would test that by disconnecting both ends of that tube. Plug or cap one end. Use a hand vacuum pump and apply suction to the other end . If there is a hole where that tube passes through the head you will pull coolant into the line going to the vacuum pump. At a minimum it will not hold vacuum.

Without some more study, I cannot think of other areas where the oil and coolant passages are adjacent or interface. Hopefully the real experts will jump in with some ideas.

After I posted my note about a compression test I realized that it will probably not help troubleshoot this problem. There are no oil passages at the head to block interface on these engines.

If there is a bad head gasket it could let coolant get into the oil. That is not a path for oil to get into the coolant.

If it was lubed with graphite previously that should work. If it was lubed with a "wet" product don't use graphite.

Re: 1931 Dash Decal JackDavis 06/06/23 01:58 PM
wondering if the painted dash vs. decal dash would also apply to the 1932 Special Sedan? Mine has ivory painted dash recess on black dash, and black painted window moldings with brown highlights.

Re: Coinfederate front seat adjustment JackDavis 06/06/23 01:51 PM
On the rubber floor mat, the Filling Station kit came with a roll of fiber matting. Is this to go under the rubber mat? What holds the rubber mat down, its own weight? Seems to me it could curl easily. And the carpet for the rear seat, any suggestion as to what kind of carpet--color, pile, etc.? How many snaps hold it down, and where are they to be located? Sorry for so many questions.

Door lock assembly for early AD truck fonz8261 06/06/23 12:22 PM
Looking for an original passenger side door lock assembly for the early AD trucks. Needs to be complete and in working order with at least one key. Retainer clip would be a nice bonus.

Re: Bel Air emblem question The53TwoTen 06/06/23 02:58 AM
Thank you for the information Gene!! It seems this car I just purchased is full of mysteries, it will be fun putting things back the way they should be. currently that area on my car is black and the emblems are gone, maybe someone was trying to mildly customize the car?? Someone has also painted the top Ivory, so I know that the paint on the car is not original and I am fine with that. Also the hood ornament you sent me cleaned up nice and is mounted on the hood after removing the '54 hood bird. Thanks again!

Re: Leaf Springs Replacement ABowlin 06/05/23 10:22 PM
Just recounted. Looks like I have 9 in the rear and 8 up front. Couldn’t tell you how original they are. I also am not sure the weight capacity it should handle - can’t seem to find that in my book. It’s. 131” wheelbase, duals (but I took the outer wheels off).

The local shop has 7 leaf springs for a 36 1/2 ton in stock that match the dimensions of the front.

Confederate door panel screws JackDavis 06/05/23 08:32 PM
On my Confederate the door panels appear to be original fabric, but they are held in place with Phillips head screws. 1932 is about four years too early for the Phillips head, so presumably some past owner used them to affix original panels to the doors and posts. Am I right in thinking this won't pass? Should it be hidden nails instead?

Best white wall cleaner Mr87Monty 06/05/23 05:30 PM
Not sure if this was suggested to me here or from someone else where but the easiest way I have found to clean white walls is with a damp magic eraser. In a few minutes it took all of the scuff marks off. Found generic ones that I can get in bulk on Amazon that do the job well. Actually my kids washed the car last.

Re: Netflix Mr87Monty 06/05/23 04:53 PM
I used to have Netflix streaming. Rarely was any of the extra content available with any movie or show. It was better organized than Prime and had more content at the time. Unfortunately now that everyone and their brother has a service many of the things we watched on Netflix were removed. We now have the Disney and Hulu bundle with Prime. Got that with a one year promotional special. Still no added content though. Unfortunately streaming is not any better now than what we had with cable and a video rental store. To get a variety you need to have broadband and multiple services. Used to be I had basic cable and just got movies from the rental store or bought last years hits from barging bins at the store.
