Re: Trany Problems

My guess is the synchro wore out . . . allowing the collar to travel too far. I had that happen on a 39 Box (with the late style synchros). The car was stuck in 3rd gear.

Re: STREET MACHInES, Engines, gearing and etc

The best factory gear set is still used in the T5Z Ford Racing version of the T5. It has the 2.95 first. I take this transmission and then put a .80 or so overdrive gear in it - which keeps all...

Re: How to Install Piston Rings in a Relieved Block

I use a normal "band type" ring compressor - and I align the ring gaps to NOT be in the relieved area. Also, you will see that sometimes a ring wants to pop-out a bit and hang up on the edge of the...

Re: 81ís tri power or dual 97ís

In the end, I believe I have too few carbs, bad fuel economy and I'm going to do something about both! One will get better and one will probably get worse . . . LOL

Re: How to use PCV valve w Tri Power?

RE: 39-48 Flatheads: One thing for folks to remember is that is you're running a 39-48 style flathead, the above setup is not all that you need to do - the air-flow path is completely different on...

Re: Stromberg 97 carb questions

Strombergs are very sensitive to fuel pressure . . . and many fuel pressure regulators are not really accurate at the low pressure levels that we run Strombergs at. I would use a max of 2 lbs of...

Re: 8ba flat head

If the engine is a 49-53, then it can be a Ford or a Mercury engine - the blocks are all the same. The factory heads for Mercury were marked 8CM, though people have swapped all sorts of parts...

Re: New transmission locks up. Only spins free in neutral. Thoughts?

Another repop part that I won't use are the "new" cluster shafts - two problems with all that I've seen:

1) The material and finish is nowhere near what Ford made. Also, they tend to be soft.

Re: engine paint prep

Depends how much time you want to put into it - and what type of paint you have from Hirsch.

I have used Hirsh's paint - it is decent stuff, but the surface prep is everything. I would try to...

Re: Help: Reverse eye leaf spring problem 34 Ford

Good point and a smart thing to do. If they are truly cut/weld areas, should be able to decipher them on both sides. So I think I'll pass on my opinion until we see the other side. Hell - trying...

Re: Help: Reverse eye leaf spring problem 34 Ford

Re: 40 engine temperature drop by 20 degrees

Re: solid copper head gaskets

Also, do you have the wires in the block or the heads? And - do you have receiver grooves in the opposite side (for the copper to deflect into). A lot of flathead guys seem to put wire in one side...
