Re: 1939 Ford Transmission #ís

Fact of the matter is that synchronized 1st gears are hard to find ANYWHERE for the early Ford transmissions. You didn't find synchro'd 1st gears until you get into the '60s. DD

Re: Drop Axle Installation

Joes Speed Shop advertises that they will do the proper bending of your arms for a nominal fee if you send your spindles with your axle to be dropped. DD

Re: Part For A 34 Ford Half Way Made Anyone like to Guess What It Is

Which reminds me of another "penny-pinching" Henry Ford practice. How many of y'all have ever wondered why you see no "Phillips-head" fasteners on these older Fords? I've been given to understand...

Re: Drop Axle Installation

Seery is RIGHT! The axle does NOT move up in relation to the frame. Effectively, the tires and wheels are the only thing(s) that move UPWARD in relation to the rest of the car. Heard's '36...

Re: Drop Axle Installation

Not NECESSARILY true! Many of the axle droppers are capable of "STRETCH-dropping" the axle ends, whereas the ends are stretched (elongated) to maintain the original width. Model A, '32 and '33-36...

Re: How to make a copy of a post

Well, that is kind'a cool, but then what do you do with it? The only advantage I see over "hi-lite, copy, paste" is that you capture the originator and timeline info. DD
