Re: Notching cylinder for 4 merc crank in a 221

IMO, Marts approach makes more sense than trying to duplicate whatever someone else has done, and from a picture or sketch, no less. Dummy it up, and determine what is needed. Just saying...

Re: 1949 Merc 8CM engine

I've been working on a stuck engine... two pistons stuck. First, I tried soaking with things like Kroil, PB blaster, etc, starting last July. No success with that. So, I resorted to the barbeque...

Re: Crusty Master Cylinder - Rebuild or Buy New?

The majority here (I predict) will say 'new'. For me, I re-kit the old ones, if the bore is acceptable. I've done three 'crusty' ones in the last several months, with no problems. I'm not into...

Re: Balist like this - who has?

I'm with Brian... I don't see a burned out area. Just yucky cruddy. Put an ohm meter across the posts. Somewhere back in the ancient archives, one should find a 'fix' for these things... like, a good...

Re: Merc crank clean out plugs

Just for info.... the 'cup-type' plugs that I have, came from Dorman. Available at my local parts store. Seems to me, they look same as original factory plugs. (for me, press in, no loctite. But, I...

Re: Bob Drake Brake Lines

I'm puzzled... surely you guys have tubing benders, and presumably are experts at forming tubing ? No ? 'Course, my location is pretty close to Richard Lacy's shop, and it's pretty easy for me to...

Re: Something a bit different oil tube in valley R&R.

I've looked at John's book, pages 98-100, regarding the oil tube. I see the pictures, but haven't found text on the subject. Am I missing something? My book is over 12 years old. Could there be...

You sure run into some cool stuff.... in this case, 'oddities', to us on this side of the pond.

Re: Thoughts on how to straighten a '32 trans mount

Why not just get one that is already straight? 'Course I say that, having at least a couple of them in my stash. I assume many 32-nuts would have the same. On the subject of straightening, I'd go for...

Re: T5 to torque tube adapter

DD, aren't there other original T5 extension housings that could be used to support an output yoke? I'm just babbling here, but I suspect you know what all parts are available.

Re: Pasadena High School Model A Ford Club

I sent to the address listed above, and the letter came back to me on 10-14-21. It leaves me wondering, what's up with this post? Possible mistake with the address?

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Mart, with respect, looks ok to me. Which are you referring to? top or bottom? Both look ok to me. 'Course, I'd rather not see the alternator... But, that's a different thread. Grin
