Re: 21" Split Rim Lock Screw Thread

If you have a tap die set use your thread gauge to figure it out. The only one I have that used the screw was drilled and tapped at some time oversized.

Re: 1933 Ford Pickup 4 cylinder

Re: 6v to 12v conversion for the 226

Heater blower motor maybe. Don't forget the resistors for the gauges and 12 volt coil. Also might need different voltage regulator for 12 volt system and fuel level sender.

Re: Waterpump

We are using the seal/bushing kit (from Snyder's) at the rear and stock bearing at the front. But no leak less setup will be leak less if you re use the old worn pitted shaft.

Re: Alloy radiators, what's your experience?
