Re: 35 trans to a 51' 8 ba engine

How about the flywheel choice? Ford 8ba will lead to a Ford clutch choice, and the Merc flywheel will lead to a different, Merc clutch choice. My personal choice for a clutch is the Merc version (6...

Re: 48 coupe- Question about how oil gets on the rear brakes

The 'guys', in particular Ken, Kube, & Bruce, have it nailed for you. What I didn't see mentioned... don't over-fill the rear-end. I've even seen old posts where it is suggested to leave the...

Re: Another Poll ~ Original Ford Barn ~

From my notes and stuff I saved, I've been here since the fall of 2000. I'm guessing that if there was a 'pre-Shelly', it must have been before. I found one note in my stuff that I was looking for...

Re: 1933-34 Pickup Frame Rear Spreader

Re: 1933 fordor rear fender mounting

Puzzled by the question. On my car, the rear fender attaches to the body (& running board, & gas tank cover). There is a bracket that reinforces the mounting for the tail light stand. Where would...

Re: Replaced my carburetor...used copper line...going steel ASAP

I'm not advocating either way. But, will comment, there is a type of copper that IS APPROVED. I've forgotten which, but I think it might be 'K' ??
David, you are usually looked upon as an...

Re: Replaced my carburetor...used copper line

Mac makes some good points. I've tried to make this piece with TWO bends - very difficult to get it right. Mac's point of making THREE bends is a good one - leaves some wiggle-room. However, I wonder...

Re: Wasco flathead timing tool

I printed the Wasco manual, and at first glance, it looks like it may be useful for my Chec-Rite timing fixtures. I'll give it a try... and, thank you for the manual.
Does anyone have any knowledge...

Re: T-5 and a Flathead...

Attn DeuceLover... My recollection is that you put a T-5 in a 36 pass chassis. (59a engine, early 90's WC Ford T-5, tail converted to mechanical speedo) Can you confirm this, and if so, can you...

Re: 3.54 rear gear in 46 to 48 convertible

For whatever it's worth, wife & I have a 46-48 convert (47F), and it came with 3.54's. In my opinion, it's a slug to drive, sluggish off the line, won't keep up on freeway on-ramps. Once going, it's...

Re: 33 Generator

On my 33-34, the 'arm', and 'bat' wire are as you stated. The field wire comes out the hole (of the housing), and is grounded under one of the cutout attachment points. Is yours different? Could the...

Re: Road Test of Stant vs. Shewman Thermostats

So, it's NO big deal if you never have a problem. I was probably close to the same 60 years into my own engine 'career', when I encountered MY first problem. I had a fresh build, with an air pocket...

Re: Road Test of Stant vs. Shewman Thermostats

Old engineer's 'creed'... If you have something that is working well, and you try to make it better, if you screw with it long enough, eventually you will f**k it up.

I ran this same test...

Re: !939 spun #2 rod bearing

I don't know about 'trunk' engines, but 48 was the first year for 8BA engines in trucks (pickups), and I'm pretty sure all 8BA's had/have inserts. There are also some 59's that came with 8BA...

Re: Did Ford carry rhe 46 into 1947 ?

The above posts pretty well cover it. I'd probably take exception to Kubes first sentence, then explained by 42deluxe. Maybe to help confuse, I have one reference that indicates 1946's did NOT have...

Re: Where to get better shocks?

Gads ! ... Look at the wear mark on the #3 leaf against #2 leaf. If I'm seeing this for what I think it is, this car has had some serious use.
Of course the bushing situation is bad too, as already...
