Re: 2 degree advance crank gear for model A

Yeah, as I recall it was made in the 50's by Winfield (-or maybe it was in the 60s by Bell or Harvey Crane).

As you probably know, advancing the cam will bring in more low-end, so they were...

Re: Installing the control rods

Is the upper bushing installed correctly? It it is twisted, you won't be in-line with the lower rod support tube(s).

Re: Tight Valve Guides

My instinct is that the guides are fine as-is. Additionally, I would say the bores of the block are within spec also. The guide bore diameter is supposed to be 0.5940"-0.5945 based on the factory...

Re: pop out cable restoration

Since we're just pitchin' out random numbers, :D I thought I would jump in too and pitch out what the factory print says so there will be 3 different numbers to confuse folks. :rolleyes: :p ;)

Re: 600w leaking out of steering box

This is just my opinion but if the steering is indeed sloppy and loose, the steering is likely NOT working fine. I'd say you ARE at a rebuild point. You did not indicate whether this is a 7-tooth...

Re: Gas gauge repair question

Jim, you really need to drain the majority of the tank simply because it is easier when you get ready to calibrate the gauge. Also, either the Neoprene or Brass floats are the best. Don't bother...

Re: Installing New Head Gasket

Ed, any good quality thread sealant used on the stud and threaded inserts will hold them firmly. Lowes or any parts store will carry something that will work.

If you will use a dial caliper to...

Re: Late 31 carb

None that I can think of. The value of the side-bowl may be greater and could possibly be enough to offset some, -or all of the cost of having the correct carburetor on it.

Re: Hub Hardness and Cutting

Generally speaking, the hub flanges are bent 'proud' where the hub bolts were riveted onto the drum as this is a high pressure point. When you skim the hub flange just enough to flatten this area,...

Re: Hub Hardness and Cutting

Re: reproduction 1931 two door sedan fenders

Re: Hub Hardness and Cutting

I got my definition from a machinist handbook. I wonder where Webster got their definition?? :D :D

Also, I wonder why Ford Engineers used the term Rivet instead of Swage??

Re: Running out old babbit

Use a thin chisel to get between the main web and the soft metal and then pry it out. Use a screwdriver to assist prying it out if necessary. Then use a drill bit to clean the locking holes of any...

Re: Hub Hardness and Cutting

Ummmm, you don't need to take it that far. Just a skim pass of no more than 0.005-0.010 is sufficient. This generally trues the area around the hub bolts which is all that is needed. The issue...

Re: replace wheels with steel wheels. help please.

Maybe measurements on original export vehicles were different but stateside, a 1930 Roadster originally came with 19" wheels and not 17".

In the states, a mid 1970s Ford pick-ups (-amongst a few...

Is your condition vapor lock or fuel percolation? Two totally different issues.

Re: Seat Belt

No real need. If the wood is solid, just fab an anchor plate and recess it into the wood.

Re: reproduction 1931 two door sedan fenders

Re: Dohc miller/schofield/cragar head info

Have you talked to Dan about this? The next thought would be to see what the Speedy Bill collection has. Also, have you asked this on the HAMB board?

Re: reproduction 1931 two door sedan fenders

Do they fit without "tweaking/fixing/modifying" as the original poster asked?
