F-1 steering sector

Looking for a decent Ford F-1 steering sector. Mine has some pretty bad pitting and I would like to replace it.



Prefer to pick up but will pay reasonable shipping.

Re: Take a gander at this.

Love to see more pics of the engine area. There doesn't seem to be a fan so is there an auxiliary pump. Also the exhaust is intriguing. Why does number 4 only appear to have a muffler.

Re: 1929 Gas Tank install

I don't think it really matters. Just depends on how limber you are if it's on the frame.

Re: Swap meets

Yeah there's one in Roselle Illinois in March. Check with Marc Maron. It's indoor at a Ford dealership and features a lot of Model A parts. I always find something there.

Re: OK,I wanna change my......

That's how I do it but I do remove the shell so it doesn't bend. The hood has to come off but that's the simplest part of the whole thing.

Re: Any trick to getting the hinges out of 29 Roadster

Heat...lots of heat. Not propane. Oxy acetylene heat. It's the only thing that has ever worked for me.

Re: Mercury crankshaft

You need to get that thing balanced at a machine shop. I sincerely doubt it can be. That's probably why it's not in an engine. I wouldn't use it.

Re: How many different truck doors are there???

The passenger door shown is correct for your cab. You need to find a drivers side that is a mirror image. There is no difference from AA doors and A doors. Some AA doors had an indent in the drivers...

Re: Tig welding door panel questions

Butt weld...carefully measure your replacement panels and get as tight a fit as you can. Minimize the gap. I use those little panel welding connectors Eastwood sells.

Re: Identifying a model A frame

Look at the front crossmember. The radiator supports are different. 30 31's are lower.28 29's are even with the frame rail.

Re: 39 Transmission

I paid $30.00 for a rebuilt 46/48 trans. Took the gears out of it and installed in a 39 case that I bought for $70.00. It works like new. You just need to be patient and look around. the trans was...

As others have said steer clear of the Lincoln. It's a boat anchor. Was also used in Fords big trucks if I remember.

Re: New pistons, what brand?

You can get them at Ross Pistons as well I think but they are a lot more expensive. Ross makes pistons for race motors so you probably don't need that.

Re: New pistons, what brand?

I used EGGE as well. You can get them from Van Pelts. Just make sure you give them to your machinist so he can measure them before boring the cylinders out.

I just looked at their site and it is still available. At least in acrylic. They do say they won't ship to California. We all know there are ways around thayt

Re: Front cross member needed badly

That's about the worst one I have ever seen. I would look for a good used one. They are pretty easy to find.

Re: 8ba

Pick up Vern Tardell's book on rebuilding the flathead ford V8. It will walk you right through it. Has great graphics.
