Early Ford V-8 Club Forum

FORUM RULES: Users agree to these Rules when using Forum.

The site administrator reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the user agreement without prior notice to the user. It is the responsibility of the user to regularly review the terms of this agreement.

The user agrees to the following terms:

  1. All information that you provide to us for your membership is correct.
  2. You will not use your membership to spam, harrass, or exploit other members in any way.
  3. Vulgar, Abusive, Racist and Sexist Language will not be tolerated.
  4. Commercial-type sales postings will not be allowed.
  5. No mass posting or flooding of the boards is allowed.
  6. No Advertising of parts or cars; no Ebay or business/commercial ads (please use the "Classified" for ads Wanted or For Sale).
  7. VIEWING MULTIPLE TOPICS ON SCREEN: You can choose to see more than 10 Topics at a time ... Log In and choose "Preferences" from the top bar on the Forum page. Scroll down and Change the "Default Topics Returned" parameter to 25 or 50, and save the changes. Since this setting is stored in your browser 'cookies' (if enabled), it seems to use that stored value even if you are not logged in. So, if you use a PC that you haven't logged into the forum from, the setting still seem to remain at the default.
  8. EXTERNAL PHOTO LINKS ON FORUM: You can still use external photo links in your posts on the new forum. They follow the rules of any link in that they have to have the URL link qualified down to the full image file name (example: .jpg). The links will open in a new browser window, the same as an uploaded image attached to a post. Since an image attachment to any post does not display inline with the post, the results are the same. You can use multiple external links within a post. This link is from photos on a site from Don Clink's 'Deuce@75' albums:

    http://donclink.com/deuce_75_1/images/dscn2950.jpg

    Using links from photo sites such as Photobucket can help in "size" issue with uploaded attachment files. For best viewing in web browsers, photos should be around the 800x600 pixel range, and probably not more than 1024x768. Most cameras today store HUGE jpg image files, as the default settings are in the 7, 8, 10, and 12Mb image sizes. The image files that are then attached are very large, and the browser can't display the full image size without using the scroll bars. Use the re-sizing functions of your photo editing software to reduce the image to 800x600, which reduces the file sixe and the image load time in the browser. Don uses Google's free Picassa3 software, which is an excellent photo management product. All of the photo albums of the Deuce, Grand National, and Auburn that are links on the NORG site were built using Picassa's web creation functions. And it's free? (THANKS to Don Clink for the info!)
  9. HOW DO I SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH MY USERNAME? You can LogIn on the Forum, and select PREFERENCES. On this page Members can add optional information such as their City,State, Country; Occupation; Hobbies: list a Homepage; list AOL Instant Messanger Handle; Signature; "Make Email Address viewable to others;" and even change the number of Default Topics shown on a page. WHEN others click on your profile, they will see this information.

I read in the early v8 35-36 ford book, that the cowl vent through has a drain hose.. has anyone such a drain hose , and did you put it in or was it plumbed from ford? I need to figure out one for mine. Maybe ice maker line?

If you look under the dash you will see a nipple on the underside of the vent trough. Connect a length of black rubber hose to the nipple and bring the other end of the hose out through the hole in the firewall between the choke and throttle holes.

As Don stated, drain the window drains through the cowl vent drain line. I did this to my '35 more than ten years ago and everything works great. Easy to install and maintain. All you need is some plastic tubing and a 4-way plastic connection.

I think that flatheadfan misread/quoted Don Rogers reply.. The question/reply was about the cowl vent drain, not the windshield.
The windshield drains are via two small hoses, one in each corner of the windshield, then into the left/right front quarter panel.

Bill-
You are right about my misunderstanding of the problem. As for the windshield drains, avoiding the panel dump with the rerouting of the windshield drains are worth considering. Saves lower cowl rusting and lower panel rot.

There is a very good possibility that the original location of the windshield drain hose' into the front quarter's was a problem, especially in very wet climates.
I agree with you about hooking the drain hoses together, tying them into the cowl vent drain hose.
I became aware of body drains, and the absence of same in many concealed locations at a very young age. I have generally went to great lengths to keep body drains open, free of dirt and debris.
