Re: muffler selection

Go to your local Napa store. The exhaust catalog has all their mufflers listed by dimensions. Ask the counterman to let you look at the catalog. They should be able to help you.

Re: Mallory Dist cap

I may be way off on this, but see if an early 55 or 56 Chevy, V8 Cap will work. The early SBC Cap is different than the later ones with the screw mounting.

Re: Ford 4 cylinder industrial engine

I used to do a lot of parts business with a local tree company. Their chippers all had 4cyl. OHV Ford engines. This was in the early 70s. These engines were the same as a Ford 801 tractor used.

Re: help me with the obvious pls

Make sure you have some free play in the master cylinder rod. If the piston in the master cylinder does not completely return all the way back in the bore, you will have the problems you described.

Re: ot........ Some things that should never be done to Old vehicles

Never put a Chevy engine in a Ford car or truck. When I'm at a car show and see an old Ford with a Chevy engine, I just walk on to the next car. This is a real pet peeve of mine.
