Re: Tires 1941 160

In the trunk of a 1941 160 that I bought a few years ago there was a US royal tire. That car was parked in 1954 or 55 and had 58000 miles. I wonder if that was 1 of the original tires for the car. I still have the tire if I think of it I will post a picture this weekend. I remember looking for a date code the tire is so old it doesn’t have a date code. And from what i read us royal became uniroyal in 1961

I always torque heads several times. I install them and torque bolts to 15 ft lbs. Then 30 then 45 then 62. run engine leave engine cool and retorque. I had a problem with a head gasket from olsons. Someone must have dropped it and there was a wrinkle in the corner. I called olsons and they said it would be fine I put it on and it leaked where the wrinkle was. I called olsons they said they had a 5 day return policy and I was past that and they would not take it back.

Jerome your on the right track I found the problem and your not going to believe it. My brother-in-law said it was the fuel pump i did not believe it was but I thought I would try a electric pump. So I figured I would unhook the gas line and run the engine out of gas so the mechanical pump would not be pumping gas all over the place. I started the engine with the gas line disconnected and as always it was shimmy and shakeing but for the last minute or 2 the engine had smooth out. I said to myself the float must be adjusted wrong. I took the top of the carb off and I was looking at the float and needle and seat and I found a piece of hair in the needle and seat. I removed that put the carburetor back together and its been running smooth for a 1/2 hour. I think I got it.Sneeky in deed. I wanted to say thanks everyone for the replys

the choke works and it is wide open when warm. I recently replace the exhaust pipe going to the manifold and i checked the heat riser at that time. The car has hydraulic valves so they self adjust. I also tried putting a jumper wire between battery cable and coil also did the coil to distributor. Sometimes I shut the car off and restart it 5 minutes later and it runs smooth again for the first couple minutes.Also checked for fuel in carb by hitting the throttle.My brother-in-law says to replace the fuel pump but why would it run smooth for the first couple minutes if that was bad. Also it usually starts up easy when its warm

Well new plugs new wires new points and condenser new coil new cap and rotor. Same problem starts up runs like a Packard should. After a few minutes starts running rough and keeps getting worse. Engine temp is around 165 degrees warm. I checked it with a heat gun. Put my hand slightly over the carb to see if it would smooth out it did not.

I got the new tires and tube mounted and balanced. Also I had my transmission rebuilt by a well known transmission guy. He said he really didn’t rebiuld them anymore but if washed all the parts he would do it. That is back in the car . Im working on a few wiring issues with the overdrive but I think I have that figured out. Also working on the exhaust I have the pipe mounted on the exhaust manifold and I think I located a muffler. I bought a gas tank a Hershey and then I took it to be cleaned and coated.OUCH!! I still need to get the sender. KM life styles said they could make 1 so by the time the gas tank is installed that will be almost 1000. Dollars
