Re: Ford Steering gear box

Although my experience has been the Ford 7 tooth, I seem to recall that the two tooth box was made by Ford and by Gemmer. The bearings are slightly different between the two. I understand both can be...

Re: Odd Failure

The final word on my starting issue. It was the battery. The battery was marginal on a load test, and being an Optima I could not do a specific gravity check. I put a charger on it overnight, then...

Re: model a ford radiator

Absolutely, the tanks alone are worth saving for future rebuilds. You wouldn't have any trouble selling them, especially if original pieces.

Not everyone can afford a Berg or Brassworks.

Re: Brake Banjo Bolt

Yes, I have had that problem on the brake system on my '40. Running DOT5 and just could not get the seep stopped. It was crazy. Tried several copper washers. I ended up using a nylon washer which...

Re: Odd Failure

Here is an update to my situation with "no start." I'm embarrassed to say I'm still not sure. Now I'm not sure because I missed a few things.
The battery passed a load test initially. Subsequent...

Re: 6 volt starter install question

Just an FYI, the starter gear goes toward the front of the car when the starter spins. When the car fires, it throws the gear back to the rear of the car.

Re: Bubba rant ???

Were all his parts changing his attempt to correct a perceived problem? You say the problem turned out to not be ignition. Perhaps he was cherry picking quality parts off of you for free.

Thanks for the input Pete. Everything is new, but I went over all my connections yesterday, but not with a meter. I shall do that. Excellent troubleshooting theory.

Odd Failure

Been driving my OCPU a lot and am really enjoying it. Took my 90 year old father in law for his first ride, that he was eagerly waiting for all the time I was building the truck. We had a nice drive,...

Re: Refresh my memory on starter drives

Thanks Kurt, could've sworn there was something different. The green bible is confusing on the issue.

Refresh my memory on starter drives

My memory is foggy about differences in the Model A bendix drives vs the Early V8 starter drives.
I think the bendix springs are wound the reverse of each other. Anybody with a better memory recall...

Re: 36 ford transmission shifter very slopy

Restore the ball size on the shifter, and the gates in the forks. That will take care of it. Also, the longer the shift handle, the looser the shift will feel.

Re: Carburetor float hinge bracket dislodged

I have performed tests on JB Weld and gasoline, and results prove it holds for quite a while, but eventually it breaks down. I like Tiger1000's solution, or, silver solder the holes closed and...

Re: Need help with Ford model 8ba carburetor

The discharge needle is not a needle per say, but the squirters, through which the accelerator pump injects the gas into the venturi. This prevents a stumble when the throttle plates first open.

Re: Pulling the Pinion

Interesting Ken, does your work by tightening the nut? The center shaft has threads not visible in the photo? Also what did you use for the arch?

Re: Pulling the Pinion

Thanks! Got a press, but it's only 3 1/4" opening. I guess I could build another shelf with a wider opening.
