Subject: Mercury V8
Date: Mon, 12 Mar 2001 20:09:08 -0800

Hello to all,
I have an interesting problem that maybe one of you has come across before. My
Mercury V8 in my 53 F250 doesn't run well at all. It idles ok, but misses occasionally, when you step on the gas, it runs alittle more rough, when you
step all the way down, it doesn't develop any power at all. I rebuilt the carb,
checked the compression ( 95 to 98 pounds in all cylinders), checked vacuum
(18 inches) checked timing, I had the carb apart several times, even went and
got another one but the same thing. It runs the six volt system, It has had a complete tune up. I haven't had it running correctly since I bought it 2 months ago,
so I don't know if it ever ran right. Could the valve timing be off at all?
any help"
Thanks
Bill
53 F250

Bill,  Had the same problem with my 52 M1 until I reset the points.  Hope
this helps.

One of you all, Glenn, I think, asked if Grover is really the color
that you see in the Pictorial. Yep, he's faded blue with a bit of rust
showing through. In more detail, that truck is the original Sheridan
Blue with two layers of Earl Shive's Finest slowly oxidizing and
crumblng (not peeling!) off the original paint.
I have some more up-to-date pictures of Grover that I've been wanting
to put on the pictorial, but I've misplaced the darned things.
