Re: Replacement driveshaft

What is this going in? You have a shoebox in your avatar and the driveshafts were the same for both standard and overdrive.

Re: Engine Rebuilder

The valve spring problem was found because the builder did not have the cam timed correctly. I remember the marks being hard to see so I checked to make sure things were doing what they were...

Re: Engine Rebuilder

I'm going to go out on a limb here but I did my own engine. I did have it bored and the crank ground by someone familiar with flatheads. I see the most costly common mistake is someone not leaving...

Re: oil analysis newsletter

If you read the other reports then you'd see how they found a wrist pin failure in a new engine.

Re: oil analysis newsletter

All I know is they said I could probably try another 1000 miles.

Re: EFV8 Grand National Meet 2018

Yes it is. I'm only an hour or so from the Berkshires. 90 minutes to the NY border.

Re: Was there a 4 cylinder motor in 34

It looks like an A motor but is not. The oil pan is different as is the transmission mating area. Half the bell housing is part of the B pan. I also believe the torque tube length is different for...

Re: gas washed cylinders and ring sealing

years ago we rebuilt a healy 3000 and the engine used a quart every couple of hundred miles.
one mechanic suggested taking it for a hard run up and down the pike. That fixed it.

Re: Grand National Meet RV Camping

I believe I saw a thread on the EV8 site. They made some recommendations. Maybe you could get together and get adjacent spots.

Re: Was there a 4 cylinder motor in 34

If I may add the confusion to the misnomer was complicated by ford coming out with a counter balanced crankshaft. Coupled with the C on the head what else could it mean? In the end nothing. Those...

Re: 49 Mercury overdrive transmission assembly question

Is the solenoid attached? If the balk ring is engaged with the od lever locked out it won't work.

Re: Ignition debate

I bought quality condensors for my 49 and 66 Mustang. Both junk. I figured if I was going to go unreliable I would go with pertronix. I bought the suggested coil also. I carry a spare distributor...

Re: Fabricating oil pickup?

Re: 33 unskirted fenders

One has to wonder how many vehicles were driven with one of each when an early 33 needed a fender replaced and the skirted was all that could be had?

Re: 1949-50-51 Ford Wagon

Some early 49s may have had the x frame but I think later ones were the same as passenger. 49-50 may be different than 51 at least the trans crosmember is.
