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: Stroker 21 stud

I'd say talk to Walt... Maybe talk to a 'higher authority' to get that bore. :)

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

I had a similar situation with my late 33 / early 34. Mac's gave me the runaround - my fault, nobody every complained before, etc. The Mac's pads I got, came with 1/2-20 studs, which as near as I...

Re: 1935 4 door humpback glass

Most any 'old-time' glass shop, and also the replacement-glass shops that advertise in classifieds (Hemmings, V8 Times, Street Rodder, many others) all seem to have the 'old-timey' scrolls that have...

Re: 21 stud rear main seal

I assume you are aware that the 21 stud did NOT originally have a seal??
Curious... what is it that you are trying to do? Convert to 59A stuff?

Re: Need help! working on camber issue / '48 Coupe

It was pretty easy to get rear-sump sbf pans, back when I was doing Jeeps. I've forgotten the details, but someone here, or on hamb, will know. (Corresponding oil pickup, to go with pan)

Re: radiator way plugged

Re: Help identifying my axle please

My initial guess would also have been D-44. The '10' bolts are right. General shape is about right. But, D-44's that I'm familiar with have a very straight edge, both on the left, and on the right of...

Re: 33 small problem

WAG... no more than speculation and a guess.... 'hanging' valve(s). Some folks here might suggest trying mmo in the tank for awhile. Cheap & easy try, might eliminate at least one idea???

Re: Anyone tried this welding technique?
