Re: cleaning isenglass

I'm another Pledge user - been using it on plastic windows in convertible tops since the 60's. I've never looked for another product, so I'd guess the newer, more 'designated' products work too.
For...

Re: Battery too tall for 1936

I needed a new battery holder, as my original was shot, falling apart. I made a duplicate of original, except lowered the bottom the appropriate amount to accomodate the taller battery. Simple, works...

Re: A question on '47 Ford moldings

I think it's pretty well figured out in the above posts. As you noted, 'hash marks' yes, and 47 'crowned' low, 48 crowned mid-point. I'd rather not see someone post "new 47-48 trim", as this implies...

Re: F-1 rear axle question

There are guys that add the necessary 'meat' to re-drill for 5 on 5.5. One example, Eric Vaughn, the Real Wheels guy, and part of the original group of guys that created Pete & Jake's, has done this...

Re: F-1 rear axle question

I'm thinking more along the Jeep line. Has correct 5 on 5.5. But not just any Jeep. Some are more appropriate than others. 70's if it's narrow track. Some have flanged axles - desirable IMO. If wide...

Re: F-1 rear axle question

If its a 41, there should be a '41' cast on the case, usually front and low , covered by gunk. In spite of one of the posts above, I believe you will have trouble finding enough 41 rebuild parts. If...

Re: 1933 Fordor 6Volt draw

This brings up something I've noticed on my own 34... The cutout mounts only one way - can't put it on backwards. The terminal to the rear, close to hole for armature & field wires, is clearly...

Re: Will 16" KH Wheel Fit in 34 Spare Tire Cover?

I don't know about a KH wheel, but I have a 600-16 on a 35 Ford wheel, in a 34 metal tire cover, and it fits like it belongs there.

Re: Do you use a timing light ?

With due respect to Jim and others, after one uses a timing light, don't you go back to post 6, and 'adjust to suit'? I know I do, no matter what the engine is. I almost always add a little more...

Re: AN-10 hose by the foot?

Maybe McMaster-Carr? I haven't looked, so I don't really know.
I'd also be looking for local 'hose-man'.
Some of us are a little 'luckier'. In Pasadena, there is an old-time hardware store, Berg's....

Re: revisit : gravity bends a crank

Pete, that one went right over my head. Maybe OT, but could you expand a little on how to sleeve a main? What holds the sleeve in place? Thank you.

Re: Basket case, what do I look for? New to the hobby.

In contrast to some other opinions here, I like a basket case. I see them as mechanical puzzles. My last one was for a model which I was unfamiliar with, so speaking for myself, I'd never let...

Re: Seeking a jack for 1933 sedan

I carry a couple short 2 x 6's to drive a flat up on, so I can get a jack under axle. Also need to block car so it doesn't roll off jack. I use a jack from a 90's F-150 - looks similar to a bottle...

Re: Is Woodart still in business?

I've read the comment about woodart before. I've also heard he is hard to contact. I got a wood kit from him awhile back, and it was perfect and top quality. I hope he is still doing his thing - I...

Re: "Free" Banjo rear... Painful

I got quite a few parts out of a 39 rear end like that, and they are now in my 34 rear end. Water did its thing on some of it, but that stinky old oil did a good job of preserving the gears and the...

Re: What to look for in '35 trans. Inspection?

Couple more... with syncro in neutral, push brass syncro rings to minimum, should be a gap of about 1/16, or whatever Mac's book says. Definitely not closed, or near closed.
And, with aid of skinny...

Re: What's involved putting 59ab into a 1935 Ford

Also think about gen & fan. Might need 35-style intake (for correct height).
An original 59A is probably going to come with a 10-in clutch. You might want to think about that. My preference would be...

Re: floor shift conversion on 47 tudor

With this thought in mind, I have one car that has a similar shifter. I made a sturdy bracket to mount it on the floor, big enough to spread the load out. Then I made trans shift arms, with length to...

Re: 33 clutch & brake pedal/pads
