Re: 255 merc excessive ring end-gap?

We're screwing around with old Fords. Me thinks there is too much worrying going on. Are we assembling 'precision' engines, or just old Fords?

Re: Will 59 A-B flywheel fit an 8BA ?

Original question... will it fit? Yes, of course it will fit. Different question, will it work? Heck no.

Re: 46 pick up 1/2 or 3/4 ton?

Referring to your picture... If you could pop off the hubcap, and count the lugs, might identify 1/2 or 3/4, 5 or 8 lugs ??? Maybe. DD would know. And, as DD noted, 7 in the 799, designates 1947...

Re: 1934 Tudor needs a little hop-up

My 'take'... (My experience is with a late 33 / early 34 sedan, with 36LB engine, 3.78 rear end)... skinny 17-inch wheels & stock tires, combined with stock brakes, stock steering, scared me at...

Re: 34 Ford Hood latch spring

I can't help you, but... I had to look on the other side on my 34 to figure it out. And, I learned that there is an 'early' and 'later' design. Naturally, the vendor that i bought from, had the...

Re: 1940 merc rear end?

It will be interesting to see results of post 31. I'll be real surprised if there are not a couple errors in posts 30 and 32. My restoration experience suggest such. But, as Coop says... what do I...

Re: Drive Shaft Shortening

Stude.... glad it all worked out. But, I thought you posted that D/S Specialist is/was closed. Anyway, glad they worked for you, and I'm glad they are still available. Some of my 'rod' buddies (&...

Re: Bingo

Thanks for the info. I knew about the 34, for several years. I helped Bernie a few times with maintenance and repair work on two of his other cars. The 34, as well as several other cars, were always...

Re: A California Survivor - California Cabriolet V-8

I'm 'wondering'... Any chance that was Bernie VanAalst's 34? In any event, it looks like it. Bernie's car still had original factory upholstery (in relatively good shape), and original 34 engine....

Re: 1940 merc rear end?

Merc & Ford are externally dimensionally the same. Yes, to the above comments about different driveshaft/pinion. And, the difference in WB has nothing to do with the rear end. The 4 inch difference...

Re: Drive Shaft Shortening

Ok... Doing the D/S should be no big deal for ANY D/S shop. So, have the D/S done professionally. Nothing unusual there. And, at the risk of being 'involved', I'll volunteer to do the TT. (Or, I'll...

To post #2, 34 D/S will not work with 35 rear end.

Re: My little red Ford Pickup

Before you jump on the idea of 39 pedals, check on ideas to keep the 36 pedals. I'm sure there will be differing opinions offered here. I 'second' post #4

Re: 36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Ummm... We don't exactly know what your driving conditions are. Hills? Flat? Speed? So, I'll offer this opinion and experience... I have a 36LB in a 34 sedan. With 3.78 axle, which is the same as...

Re: 34 ford Toe IN

Re: 34 ford Toe IN

Some of you folks have gotta be kidding me. These are JUST OLD FORDS, for crying out loud. A monkey wrench, a hammer, (and a tape measure) are plenty good enough. Hundred bucks? you got more to piss...

Re: Car search

For whatever it's worth... I had a 'hot-rodded' Model A, in the 58 to 65 time period. Couple years ago, I tried (and succeeded) to track it down. So, it CAN be done. In my case, I had (have) the...
