Re: Radiator Hoses

It is tempting and there are some there that I could use, those New Prefect top hoses would be nice but those do look like old school type hoses and I bet they are as hard as rock? I had to go to an auto parts store and go through their hose catalogue until I found one that I could cut/fit. It is n...

Re: Correct Stock Radiator Cap

Ah, understanding dawns! The concentration of A/F in modern cars is very high: it was 50-50 when I was teaching Motor Vehicle. I wouldn't try that level in a classic, though. So what mixture of antifreeze/water should I be using in my stock radiator/engine? Still 50/50? (My rad is currently getting...

Re: 1948 Ford Anglia - $14,000 (Langley)

If that's Canadian dollars, that's about $10,600 USD correct?

Don't see original bellow types that often though they are still made. Easier to purchase a modern type 160F / 72C degree Stant 45356.
Okay, I'll pick up that Stant one and see how it works out. Thanks.

Thermostat Style

Okay experts. After some effort, I was able to remove my thermostat from my 1959 Thames 300E today. I'm not familiar with this design. I'm assuming it's stock as it looks like the one in the parts book. (Says "AC Made in England" and "176 degrees F" on it.) Looks like Kip Motor Company may sell that...

Re: Correct Stock Radiator Cap

I went ahead and bought the NAPA one. It doesn't look like the original (nor the photo in the NAPA ad, which looks like the original), but it'll work for now. Fits great. Thanks again.

Correct cap Stant 10206 7 lbs long neck or NAPA 703-1411. 50's / early 60's EnFos used 4 lbs and 7 lbs long neck caps. 4 lbs caps aren't used anymore. They are available on ebay ~ $10 Great. Looks like that NAPA one is in stock at my local NAPA store up the street. (Says it's manufactured by Stant.)

Re: Correct Stock Radiator Cap

Looks like mine measures 1 1/4" from the top of the cap to the bottom of the rubber seal. But I'm not sure if that's where they measure it from.

I only see Small Ford Spares listed for those numbers, but I'll keep checking around.

Thanks.

Correct Stock Radiator Cap

Can anyone tell me the proper radiator cap to use on a stock 100E/300E radiator and where I might be able to get one in North America? I see references to a "long reach" type cap, so I assume a typical modern cap won't work. Mine has a very worn lower (rubber) seal and a cracked upper (metal) seal. ...

The sports cars belong to another guy,not Stan.
Thanks. My brother's a Sunbeam Alpine guy. Didn't see one of them there, but couldn't really tell from the original photos.
