For Michelle...

My '54-'55 Ford Shop Manual (page 101) shows a "combination pump" was
available during those years. The vacuum side was designed to pull 10.5 inches
of mercury. The maual goes thru a step-by-step rebuild procedure & had an
exploded view of the pump. I hope this helps.

My old '46 wipers were just like that, slow and slower the faster I went.

The best improvement I have made (besides finding new wiper blades) was
using stuff called "Rain-Away"

Now I don't even bother using them. And the best part is, the harder it
rains - the better the stuff works!

Subject: FTE Pre61 - Motor City Flathead

I am looking for referrals for Motor City Flathead. I have been reviewing
their catalog and considering using some of their services. Has anyone
used them to rebuild a flathead? If so, what were your results? I'm going
to get this '39 flathead built yet :)

Thanks.

Yup Rain-X has been a staple of mine for a few years now. Great stuff.
