Re: New block

Tod hasn't disappeared. He's still busily working on and making Model A and B parts.

What tubman said, and it's way worse for the 21 stud guys.

Re: Flathead repair

Drop the muffler out and try it again. Run a wire up the exhaust pipe from muffler to engine looking for a blockage. Has the car been together long enough for rodents to full the muffler or pipes...

Re: Flathead repair

Definitely sounds like that. Where is the air through baffles sound coming from when you hear it? Rear of the car?

Re: How would you fix severly pitted crossmember metal?

Leading should work fine, would be harder than epoxy or body filler.

Re: Flathead deck height

I'd love to see what tools Ford used to check that dimension and some other difficult features on the flathead in the early '30s.

Re: Flathead deck height

FWIW, as a quick and dirty check I measured a 37 block this morning. I used a pair of dial calipers from the main bearing saddle to the deck, then added half the bearing bore. The bearing bore looks...

Re: Flathead deck height

Thank you Dale! You are generous! Most folks won't appreciate what you just gave away in terms of hours spent to create and validate that.

Re: Flathead deck height

Many thanks, both of you. I've also been looking for that number for years. Would a 221 block be the same?

That's a great drawing, Bored and Stroked, thanks much for sharing it! Is there a chance...

Re: silicone brake fluid proof brake light switch

I don't think it's the silicone fluid making them fail. I started having those switches fail 40+ years ago before there was silicone fluid. old ones lasted for years, newer ones failed in a year or...

Re: 1936 LB marking

Ebay is a pretty good indication of availability, and I haven't seen squat for 36-38 main bearings for the past half dozen years, except for standard size.



I have 2 pairs of flanged rods...

Re: 1936 LB marking

I think it means Liner Bearing.
I also have one with no LB stamp.

Re: Finished - Custom 20x10 Super Singles For My 1936 1-1/2 Ton

Very nice job, and looks appropriate to the truck for the average observer. Cool solution!



Where did you get the rims?

Re: Ford ran 2/3 cars at the 1035 Indy 500?

Does anyone know what the waterpump setup is on these? I've never seen a photo that shows one.

Re: Pressure-Sealing Blocks

Does that mean it won't work in your case, because the cylinder is exposed to combustion?
How did you fix your block?

Re: 3D printed Flathead

Tod's been busy installing a new machining center, setting up his own foundry and still making model A parts every day. I think the flathead block is secondary to paying bills but not abandoned.

Re: Dual distributors

There's definitely power to be gained on some engines with dual plugs, but maybe not flathead Fords. Race Harleys have done it since the 70s, I had my first dual plug setup on a shovelhead about 77...

Re: Bearing clearance

So for .002 clearance on floating rod bearings, do you run .002 on the inside of the bearing and also .002 on the outside of the bearing? Or just .002 total difference in dimensions?
