Re: how to measure crankshaft end play

According to the Motors Repair Manual the crankshaft endplay for the 1952-53 V-8 239 cu. in engine is .004 to .008 in. I would think 1950 engine would be the same.

Re: Front Bumper Grommets

On a 40 coupe the front has the wide side to the inside.

Re: Who's gonna fill their shoes?

Truth is, our empty "Ford shoes" shoes will never be filled, just replaced by the newer style. Time just marches on and history recedes, replaced by the new.

Re: 8BA Running Temperatures

The cooler the ambient temperature, the cooler your engine will run.
I have found that 180 to 195 is ok.
