Re: 330 gas tank fuel float access

Mikes floats are on the way, easy fix. When putting the parcel shelf back in place looks like the black trim under the rear quarter windows must come out in order to reinstall the shelf. How are these held in place? Jim

Re: 330 gas tank fuel float access

Dyke, thanks for the info, there is a vintage Ford store here locally and will check stock. Otherwise will call Mikes. Jim

Re: 330 gas tank fuel float access

Kerry, thanks saves time searching. Looks like the float sank due to the goop in today's gas. Jim

Re: Oil filter

John, the spin on adaptor from Betz does not use any oil lines as it attaches directly to the front cover location. This is just a what if idea and not correct for a restoration, but OK for a driver or race car. Jim

Re: Oil filter

Charles Betz and Fred Peters in Ca make an adaptor that bolts onto the location where the hose plate is mounted on the front chain cover. They adapted a spin on oil filter that seems to work fine.

Re: Stick on weight removal

The stick on weights were removed without any trouble using all of your kind inputs. First soaked it with WD40, let it set a few hours, used a heat gun to soften even more, then a rag with some brake cleaner to wipe, then a little finger tip rub - and all gone. Used some Never Dull to polish the are...

Stick on weight removal

I am looking for a tip on the best solvent to remove the tape on weight adhesive from Borranis. The weight pulled off easily, but there is still tape and adhesive left on the outside face of the rim. Hate it when previous owners stick weights on the outside facing surface of a Borrani.

Re: Daytona Carb problems

Steve, just to check, pull off one of the accelerator pump diaphragms on the side of the carb. If it is one of the old orange Fispa like materials they can crack and leave stuff in the jet. Note that they are after the fuel bowl, but are still trouble spot. Trash also builds up in these pump wells s...

Re: Daytona Carb problems

Steve, another thought; there has been a batch of really poor fuel line replacements and their insides flake off with our junk gas. Analyze the stuff you pull out of the bowls, is it rubber, rust, brass, other? After you find out the material get rid of the source. Did you find any material in the g...

Re: Daytona Carb problems

Steve, looks like you checked all the normal areas, but there is another that seems to be a trouble spot. If the carb bases and insulator blocks are not flat and true, air (vac) leaks can be a bear to try and correct by any other means. Try the old spray some carb cleaner or WD-40 at the bases and s...

Re: Painting Heat Shields

Steve, did you leave the back side of the shields bare metal? As that reflective surface will repel some heat and keep the temperatures of the black wrinkle somewhat lower. Also, as the smell of the somewhat cured paint may indicate it takes quite a long time for the VHT paint to completely cure. I ...
