Re: What is the correct color for the Pickup Chains and hooks?

Silly me... I always thought 'rust' was the proper color.

Re: aluminum heads and the "rope trick"

I tried it once, and it didn't work for me. But, no harm trying - give it a go. What's worst case? Might bust combustion chamber, if you can get enough momentum going with the 'rotate'. Like Ron...

Re: What Does This Overdrive Tranny Fit?

Original question - what does it fit? Old Ron nailed it. If you want to know what it CAME from, then the 'Merc' answers apply. BTW, the '8' in the case number refers to a part number that was...

Re: Best Flathead Motor Book?

I've got ALL of the books mentioned above, plus a couple more. As noted above, seems like I can't have too many. I'm primarily a 'stocker'-type, and I was trained in the 40's and 50's using Motor...

Re: Where to attach hoist to pull a flathead

'Where to attach hoist'... And, I was sure that someone would suggest the pepper tree.

Re: Cleaning engine bay

Be careful with the auto-store engine degreasers. I used one once that ate paint. 'Overnite' would be out, for me. Wish I could remember which brand.

Re: Procedure for dropping oil pan 46-48 ford super deluxe?

I've had the pan off my 47 - but it's been at least a dozen years ago. I've probably forgotten stuff. But, I remember needing the hot wrench to get the crossover pipe loose. Without a torch, don't...

Re: 34 Ford and a 1938 Ford Motor

The spacer, or mount adapters that Mart refers to, are originally a Ford part number, intended for the switch you propose. The vendors have them, or, I have a pair that are available.
As for the...

Re: Help Needed: Early 32 versus Late 32 Rears

Re: Miles on your flathead.

My recollection is that Paul put on over 100K during the time he posted on this forum, then had the engine out for a 'freshening up', and continued to pile on miles until his health wouldn't allow....

Re: 1933 brake shoe grinding

For the case of my own car (33), I HAD to grind (arc) the shoes, or the drum would not fit on (standard size drum).

Re: Optima battery not Optimal for 1933 ford

Some of us have been laying them on their side. No problems. Usual reason is to get dual exhaust to fit through there.
In my case, I just fabbed a new battery support, copying the original, but...

Re: licence plate refinish

That reminds me, about Darryl... I sent him a (one) plate that was absolute junk - beat up, and couple tears - the opposite of 'nice and straight'. He sent it back perfect - couldn't see the welds,...

Re: licence plate refinish

Darryl did plates for me, about 13-14 years ago. Two, maybe three years for him to have them seems to be common. The work is perfect. mhsprecher, you will have to keep on them, if you really want...

Re: Stock Aluminum head repair

Re: Fixen block cracks ...

For the 'leave-it-alone' folks... It was about 14 years ago that I had my 59A apart for a valve job, and a couple other repairs. I found one of the 'part-number' cracks, #6, from in the port, across...

Re: '42-'48 Convertible windshield gasket

Re: 1948 rear axle fitment to 1940

Lots of 46-48 came with 3.54's. Of course, there are also a lot of 4.11's out there. As noted, 46-48 is wider, so the advice on using your 40 bells & axles & TT is a good idea. If you try to use the...

Re: Wandering Eyes ...

Re: N.O.S. Engine

Re: 1946-1948 ford convertible top piston covers

Interesting... What do these spring covers look like? Are they a 'make-it-yourself' item? (Missing on my 47 - I never knew.)
