Re: Truck based woody

Wow. GB, glad you are getting better. The truck looks great and with all the little jobs you're doing it just gets better and better. The terms you are using proves to me that only a highly...

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

Charlie makes a good point, if you can run later style pumps and pullieys, you gain a couple of inches of generator room.

Re: Ignition timing

Yeah, I did hesitate when writing that, hence the "I'm not sure" bit.

I did go on to say feeler gauges are probably as good as anything for most non performance applications.

Re: Ignition timing

I'm not sure if Ford intended the pre 49 V8 points to be set with feeler gauges. I think they intended them to be set at a dealers on a setting fixture. That said, setting each pair to 15 thou will...

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

The mystery manifold above appears to have "Jack Henry" cast into it if that means anything.

Re: 1936 ford hub cap

Never done it myself but a recent post described carefully drilling a hole through the steel hubcap, but not through the stainless. Then a blast of compressed air will blow the stainless part off.

Re: Holley 94 accelerator pump helper spring

I've had a few 94s and never found a spring under the accelerator pump plunger.

Re: The Unofficial Vender List

Would it be worth adding peoples Fordbarn user name if they are active members? I'm thinking of Fred and Michael, for example.

Re: Warning about c&g

Someone mentioned Joe's Antique yesterday, I downloaded the catalog and in there there were specific notes re the tanks and adaptors.

To be honest sometimes we don't realise how lucky we are. If...

Re: need your help

Moonraker, just out of interest, what can you tell us of the history of your car, and how it came to be in the former Soviet Union. I'd be guessing but they must be pretty rare over there, or are...

Re: T170 trans with stock 1932 ford K member ??

I researched this, and the only way I could find to fit an overdrive trans into a 32 K member is to use a Volvo 4 spd + od box. I mocked it up. The overdrive would have to be assembled onto the box...

Re: 37 engine in 34 truck

Lower pump bolt. Good quality six sided 9/16" socket, or a 14mm knocked on if a bit undersize.

Re: need your help

If the chassis number is in this range:
18-4,661,001 to 18-5,210,700 (From Mac Van Pelts site)

Then your car is a Ford 85HP V8 and the numbers fall in the 1939 range.

The only thing not...

Re: Turn Signal Switch with Relays

As the flasher relay needs two bulbs to flash at the correct rate, I'd be inclined to wire it as normal and then see if the circuit will also pull in a relay and flash at the correct rate. If it...

Re: Sudden Drop in Gas Mileage

Could be one of the many reasons a carb runs rich. I'm only familiar with the 94 carbs. If you have a 94 you could check for:
Punctured float.
On seating needle valve.
Ruptured power valve....

Re: French flathead camshaft

It is a truck application so it might be reasonable to assume it is a grind that favours the bottom end. Don't have any numbers though, so this is an assumption. The French motors have restricted...

Re: Intermittent sticking valve

If you do this, it is a good idea to touch the screwdriver to ground on the head...

Re: front brakes

Repro drums are available.

You could fit some of the lincoln types that are available.

You could go F100.

The last two would be complete brake swap outs, not just a drum.

What are you...

Re: Ford engine factory break in process

Re: Tie Rod End Removal

Forget pickle forks. Sometimes you want to remove the joint and use it again without having the seals all buggered up.

Get one with a screw that pushes the joint out. There was a previous thread...

Re: split pins usage

"It's like an ice pick that got slammed in a door jamb."

Re: bleeding brakes

Bleed screws are always loose. There should be no point in the bleeding process where you are sucking on the cylinder.

You should always close the bleeder before letting the pedal come up again....
