Porter Mufflers on a Flathead Ford
Porter Mufflers on a 1948 Ford Flathead. www.portermufflers.com Nice sound,
excellent quality. Made in the USA. The system we had to build was complex
because of the air ride system on the car, but it has plenty of ground
clearance and sounds great. Be sure to check out the greatest weekend
Rockabilly and Hot Rod Show in the Midwest - www.symcoshakedown.com.
First Start for 1923 Model T barn car
This '23 Model T had not been run in decades. Pulled the engine and gave it
a full rebuild, then re- installed and overhauled the chassis with mostly
used Model T parts. The car will be kept in the original rusty condition,
as pulled from the barn......but she runs now!
Last licensed in 1948, Ford Model T's like this were popular with farmers.
This was originally a touring car, but the back seat part of the body and
the convertible top was tossed, and a homemade wooden bed put on to carry
produce to market.
MUST HEAR engine sound Pre War Nitro burning flathead 1932 AV8 Ford hot rod race car
This roadster was originally built in 1937 by Sandy Belond and Sam Hanks to
race on the SoCal dry lakes. My friends always kid me saying it isn't
authentic until you run like he did on nitro; Cheers guys, 58% Methanol 20%
Nitro 20% Gas 2% castro oil. This fuel made it possible for Belond to run
125.854 mph in 1942 at a REVS meet held at Muroc; argueably the fastest
speed ever by a pre-war hot rod roadster.
29 Roadster starting for the first time
Here's a clip of my 29 roadster starting for first time. The engine is a
1940 Mercury flathead that was rebuilt in the 70s with an Isky cam but
hadn't been run in over 30 years.
oil change (shocking) after sitting for 50 years Ford Model A
I bought a 1930 Model A 5 window coupe all original except for a dropped
axle, a Mallory dual point distributor, some dual electrode spark plugs,
four blade radiator fan, 15" steel reversed center wheels with slicks and a
lawnmower fuel tank bolted to the dash (reasons to believe it was a hot
rod) it wouldn't turn over when I got it so I took the plugs out and poured
some Mistory oil in the holes and let it sit for a few weeks, I turned it
back n forth till I was able to give it a few full turns, checked the oil
level, put some gas in it, hooked up a battery and it turned over fine with
the starter but no fire, pulled out the distributor to find a home made
shaft extention that wasn't long enough so I rebuilt the distributor and
made a new shaft and rebuilt the carb and now it fired up! I called Adrian
to come over and check it out, he said it sounds good but don't try driving
it untill you change the oil, I drove it up and down the alley sinse the
oil look to be ok an at the correct level, called him again to let him know
how it went and the first thing he asked was, did you change the oil? so I
got to work took the drain plug out and oil dribbled out no matter what i
did it wouldn't drain out so I took the oil pan out and found the oil caked
at the bottom of the pan, lesson learned.... Always pull the oil pan OFF to
make sure you don't run your newly acquired Old motor with a pan full of
crud, I hope this helps,,, more videos of this model A to come so stay
tunned! thanks for whatching.
thanks for the great advice Adrian.

My 1925 Ford Model T - A Closer Look: Transmission & Clutch
Enthusiasts Website: http://www.fordmodelt.net/
Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/modeltford/
In this video, we take a detailed look at the Ford Model T transmission,
afterwards taking a look at the correct procedure for pulling away,
forwards and backwards, and also correct braking.
I imported my 1925 Ford Model T from the USA, not far from Detroit,
Michigan where it was built.
The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927, and was know by various
names including Tin Lizzie, Flivver, T‑Model Ford, or just 'T'.
The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile became
popular. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the
car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this
was because of Ford's innovations, including assembly line production
instead of individual hand crafting.
On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off
the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan.
