Re: Flathead Top Oiler

I'm sure you're kidding, pulling my chain. That's funny. :)

Edit, because I got an anonymous pm... My use of the term 'hack', because I grew up in a family that lovingly used the term in reference...

Re: Flathead Top Oiler

I believe Kube has described his hacks as 'trailer queens' (or something similar). Seems to me, THAT duty would be a prime candidate for mmo. Although I've also come to believe that trailer queens...

Re: Car title value.

I'm the guy with the duplicate 32 title. I keep telling myself that I should be ok. I have the original 32 frame, with genuine numbers, stamped by Ford, correct characters, correct stars, stamped in...

Re: '34 Standard Fordor rear seat bottom

Something I see in the rear view... It looks like a wood (?) riser for the seat. My standard fordor has a metal riser at that location, part of the floor, I believe. Then, under the cushion, more...

Re: '34 Standard Fordor rear seat bottom

As Pete says... My 33/34 4-dr also has no wood seat frame in the rear. (I say 33/34 because it is a VERY late 33, or early 34. A 33 tub with many 34 features, a so-called 'transition' car.) Just the...

Re: Car title value.

So, what does this situation add up to.... I bought a 32 frame from a friend of mine. (I'm in CA) I also got a body, 32 rdstr. Registration is usually pretty straight forward in CA, so I went to...

Re: Chassis for Ford V 8 couoe 5 windos

Re: value of 1933 Ford 4 door sedan

When I bought mine, 8 or 9 yrs ago, I gave a little over 8. I got an unknown engine & trans that turned out to be good. I got an excellent, no rust, 4-dr body, complete with hood, grille, bumpers,...

Re: Head Studs or bolts, which is better ?

And, just to muddy this up, there are the 'combination' guys that have posted a few times.
Maybe two, or four studs, to help assembly alignment, and the rest, bolts.
Still leaves the heads...

Re: Value? 40-41 trk block trapizoid holes

Based on my last bad experience, I would add pressure test to what's listed. D is correct, I had 1000 in my last bad block with no pressure test. That block went to the scrap man. My top $ for an...

Re: Stud Removal Tool?

The one I've used is German - I don't have brand. It's collett-type, works on the shank, does not touch the threads. I've used the biggest 1/2 drive air impact I could muster up, hammered the do-do...

Re: crank tolorance

Posts 21-23 suggest this thread has taken a turn. I thought the goal was 500 mi per year, and possibly a budget build, based on 500 / yr. If you're going to start screwing around, mixing parts with a...

Re: Other exhaust choices besides Red's? - dual exhaust for my '47?

Small world... Scotty's is the 'only' shop around the SB area, as far as I'm concerned. They did my 47, couple years ago. I'd sure like to know from you, or anyone else with a 46-48, did you come up...

Re: The Ultimate Road Trip

I think Dave loosely based his charity ride on the Iron Butt Association (motorcycle) ride. If you look up the IBA website, you can read about several of their rides. Get a certificate for 49 states...

Re: crank tolorance

If you are running about 500 mi/year, and if it was running ok before you took it apart, then why are we/you worrying any of this? Put it together & be happy. Odds are, used rod bearings are...

Re: 31 A history

According to a couple references I found with a google, Ford was in LA for the T, 1914-1928.
Then, Terminal Island, Long Beach, 1930-1957.
Then, Pico Riveria, 1957-1980.
Another plant in Richmond,...

Re: 39 gearbox problem with 2nd gear

Pooch posted tower # 40-xxxx... Ain't no way. That's a 33-34 p/n. It's the 'short-shifter', meaning the distance from the top shift ball (pivot), to the small bottom ball is short. He needs the later...

Re: Modern starter

If this is recently put together, I'd be wondering if someone has mixed pre 48, with 8BA flywheel?

Re: 39 gearbox problem with 2nd gear

Who, and what parts = right questions. Sounds a little like 'early' shifter (fork & top), and 'late' syncro.
Someone will likely ask for more info, like evidence of modified 2-3 fork?, description...

Re: 2,379 mile road trip to Mexico and around

I bought a new car in the mid-50's... bias-ply tubeless is what it came with. Radials weren't yet on the market.
