Re: Camden Supercharger

The Camden flathead kit along with their other V8 offerings were dropped when the company was sold quite a few years ago.
They had Chevy small and big block kits, Buick, Chevy and Ford V6 kits but...

Re: Mallory magspark model ignition ycm

The Mallory YCM 275 E is for the '49-'53 flatheads. The YC means it is mechanical advance only and the ZC series were mechanical and have a vacuum brake. If your distributor has a jumper wire...

Re: Need Dimensions for 1932 Sedan Rear Window Moulding

I can’t measure width and height dimensions at the moment but I can tell you that the depth of a 5 window garnish is 1 3/8”, with the Tudor and Fordor being shallower at 3/4”.

Re: 32 PU steering box tilt adjustment ?

My “opinion” was expressed earlier. While not as expedient as your solution it is a safer alternative as well as being the way the factory accomplished it. Your truck, your choice, but above all stay...

Re: 32 PU steering box tilt adjustment ?

With some careful thought the holes can be elongated and in no way would this procedure be considered a hack job on “....a good stock frame”. The low mileage steering box you have substituted may...

Re: 32 PU steering box tilt adjustment ?

When you changed the steering box to the passenger car box did you use your pickup pitman arm? The correct pitman will have a B stamped on it. If you have a pitman stamped A then with the steering...

Re: 32 Ford Front end Alignment

Without knowing the history of your car is it possible you have a pickup or Station Wagon pitman arm? The pitman arm serrations are clocked differently to accommodate the shorter cowl used on '32...

Re: Axle position 34 ford

It sounds as though you are asking about the rear axle, it is in front of the spring allowing for a lower vehicle profile.

Re: Box of window winders 1932?

That’s what I was thinking too. They do look much the same, with the difference being the length of the arm.

Re: Dual Overhead Cam Flathead

I think you are referring to Uncommon Engineering in the Indianapolis area, he does a lot of one off stuff for flatheads and Hudsons. He was also building a clone of the Novi V8 too.

Re: Ford still shows the way.

I wonder about the outcome if the Ford was FWD like the rest. It has been said each 100 pounds weight reduction is good for a tenth in the quarter mile.
The test as run was apples to an orange, GM...

Re: Brake drum thickness measurement and with micrometer questions

The .060 dimension is the maximum oversize allowed, the biggest cut can only be .030. I think I might try them if they were rears, but it sounds pretty sketchy for the front brakes, those do most of...

Re: Help with value of '37 60 tube axle

Yes, they are round, there is no taper and the king pin has a radiused cut machined in it to accept the lock. Some tube axles have had the k/p lock hole drilled to 9/16" (the size of the early Ford...

Re: 41 Coupe front end alignment?

KPI is the relationship of the k/p to the stub axle, the angle of the k/p holes in the axle is a different thing. True, the axle would be bent to correct camber but if a spindle was hit hard enough...

Re: 41 Coupe front end alignment?

If a spindle took a hard enough hit to change the KPI it is a throw away, there is no saving it.

Re: 32-34 king pin or 35-36?

Even if the cap on top of the ‘37 and later pins was not a stamping only peened on the differences would not allow usage on a ‘36 and earlier spindle. I believe someone may have placed later king...

Re: 32-34 king pin or 35-36?

The ‘35-‘36 pins will be parallel to one another if the cups are placed together and the ‘32-‘34 pins will angle apart if checked the same way.
