Re: Power disc brakes 1950 ford f1

You could also consider using a remote power booster. Midland Hy-Power units were used in some late 50's and 60's Fords but are hard to find now. PBR boosters are available either VH44 or VH40, 7"...

Here's a good article by Bill Boomer I came across a few years ago about the Merc crank identification.

Re: Rear Disc Brake Conversion

I agree with Krylon. I have them on the front of my 32 and near perfect 40's on the back of my 32 and the brakes are great.



Main advantage of disks is not fading after multiple concurrent...

Re: Rear Disc Brake Conversion

Note that 60 to 70% of your braking power is by the front brakes. Lincoln self energizing drums on the back would be effective and much easier. You may get more feedback on the H.A.M.B. site.

Re: Lifting a 8ba engine

This is how I did my 59A in 32 using a load leveler.

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

Hi David,


Shimming may work. I haven't seen a good picture of the gouge and how far back on the pan it is. If you think 1/8" at the groove would work, you need to add quite a bit more under the...

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

Hi David,


The fork is going to push and cut on the bottom side of the boot when you try to get the rod end out. If you have one slide it in place and you can see this. Most of the time, you will...

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

Yes, you have a real good chance of destroying the boot. The tie rod ends are not going to come out easily.

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

David,


I'd be buying this if rotating or flipping the drag link end for end won't work. You are concerned about the deep gouge in your pan and will have to repair that anyway.

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

That adjuster is WAY threaded out as Marko39 mentions and doesn't seem like much thread engagement is there. After you check the steering wheel position as he mentions, the next thing to check is...

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

Please see the diagram from the Green Book below. As JSeery mentions, the drag link can be flipped end to end. The best way is with a proper removal tool and not a "pickle fork". Search for a "front...

Re: Steering box/shaft removal procedure.

Good suggestions here! This thread for doing a 40 may help especially with height lift needed to pull box and shaft from bottom. Lengths are different but you can get the idea.
