Re: hammer size

Looks like Henry used about an 8 oz. ball peen hammer on the first V-8. He was stamping on cast iron in this photo.

I haven't seen a straight, evenly spaced serial number on an early V-8 Ford,...

Re: Eagle 4" 8BA Crank?

I don't have any desire to build an engine like you all have been describing, but I love to read about it. Amazing.

Re: Motoring through Olde England

I also enjoy Mart's videos. I wished I had watched his video on removing block studs before I tackled that task. About 1 year too late.

A few more rides with Mart and I'll know which exit to...

Re: Door Hinge repair

Thanks for the description of your repair, it should be very helpful. I have a similar repair to tackle on my 37 car doors.

Re: Sharp dressed helmet ????

Great looking distributor, that would look great on my 21 stud. Have to think about having the case polished.

Re: 1937 Ford Tudor door handle droop

I had a droopy front door handle on my 37. I replaced the door latch and it fixed it. I had thought about replacing the spring in the latch, but decided to go with a whole new latch. They show up...

Re: 37 coupe package tray

Some more pictures of the curved style package tray, thanks to John Jaeger for the photos.

I have heard that some coupes with the split back seat had the spare tire stored behind the front seat. ...

Re: 37 coupe package tray

Beautiful interior Blindhuckster, hope I can get mine car close to that condition some day.

Re: 37 coupe package tray

Re: 1936? Aluminum intake manifold- Vanspeed

So, does the 36 manifold have the part number 68-6520? I have a June 1937 dated Chassis Parts List and it only shows the 48-6520 for 33-36 cars, which would seem to indicate the 1935 part was being...

Re: 1937 Ford clock wiring confirmation

Supereal, the clock has an integral fuse in the housing, between the battery and ground connection, would you still recommend adding an additional fuse holder in the power line.

Re: Stock Duece Coupe

B&S, That original license plate looks like it was a Central Ohio car, is that right?

I like the look of the rumble seat area.

Re: 24 stud crankshaft in a 21 stud engine

Thanks Brian, good to know it is possible to go to 3 3/16" bore on a 21 stud block. I thought the OP was thinking of using some +.125" Merc pistons, which would be 3 5/16" wouldn't they? I have no...

Re: 24 stud crankshaft in a 21 stud engine

Won't there be an issue with some of the bottom studs with pistons that large in a 21 stud block? I thought the bore limit was about 3.0625" plus 0.060" on the early engines to avoid getting too...

Re: Oil in coolant

My 21 stud 1937 engine block has an oil hole from the timing gear area to each water pump and the water pump bushings are lubricated by the oil thrown off the timing gear. I believe the 1938-48...

Re: Quarantine work

We have an old farm house, circa 1900, so no shortage of projects for me. There was an upstairs bedroom that didn't have any electrical outlets in it. I have stripped the wallpaper for both walls...
