Re: Heater hose steel line

I'll chime in here. On my '37, I have what I BELIVEVE is the factory tube. Copper, with one standoff to hold it off the head.

Rubber hose to the heater barb on the firewall, and to a pipe barb in the water pump neck.

Trying to find out if should be green (I am assuming so) or black.

Good luck with your search.

It has been a while since I posted, but I was able to get the car running quite a bit smoother, and oil pressure is good.

Looking to clean up the engine bay a little further.

Is this heater tube the factory one? It appears to be. Should it be Packard green, like in this old picture, or black?

Thanks!

This is awesome.

I may be in touch, after compiling a list.

The PO of my car "upgraded" many of the fasteners.

Kevin,

I've always read/been taught that 90% of all driveability problems are ignition related. If you haven't, I would go through your ignition system. The ignition training manual here on this site is a great resource.

Good luck!

Re: '37 115C valves
#7

I just went through something similar on my car, and can report that after reshaping the tappet screws, the valve train is much quieter.

Ross actually helped me, and we chucked each tappet up in a lathe and ground the tappet screw convex while it was rotating.

I think your plan to decarbon, new valves, and fix the tappet screws should provide good results.

If you look at the service manual, it discusses a modification to the exhaust valve guides that reduces carbon build up. It may be worth seeing if you have the newer or older style valve guides.

If you do end up driving out the valve guides, put a block over wood over the valve seats!!! Several years ago, I was driving out valve guides, the hammer slipped, and I ruined one valve seat - turned a ring and valve job into a complete overhaul!

Good luck!

No. Just drop it straight to the exhaust manifold, so it heats up faster.

Well, I forgot to get pictures of the exhaust pipe before I reinstalled it, but not very exciting. Just some rub marks on the underside of the pipe.

Waiting on my new mechanical oil pressure gauge to get here. Once I confirm my readings, I may drop the pan and re-check all of the rod bearings. I'm concerned that the pressure is too low.

I need to tune it some more. As I'm driving it more, I'm starting to feel a bog when accelerating from the mid RPM range. Maybe I'll need to adjust the accelerator pump slightly? Again, not going to do anything until I get the distributor problem fixed, and waiting on parts.

I looked, but can't find a picture.

When I put the Carter on my car, I just ran a piece of steel tube down from the choke cover and had it terminate resting on the exhaust manifold. If I find a picture I'll add it.

The choke worked great in that configuration.
