Re: Brake Conundrum

I'd like to see pictures of how the combination of master cylinder, cross shaft, and pedal work together.

Re: Brake Conundrum

I suppose it matters what you want to end up with. If it's just a driver then finishing the hydraulic conversion is ok. Either can be made to function well. Any idea what the juice brakes came off of?

Re: fuel pump question

I live in an agricultural area where non-ethanol fuel is readily available, It's all I use... but it still sounds like a food idea. I think that's what killed this one.

fuel pump question

I was hoping to rebuild this fuel-pump. The valves seem to be pressed in? Is this type still rebuild-able?

Re: Seeing through the rain.

Look up Mart's garage on YouTube, he installed a different motor in his truck.

Re: Oil level. Is your dipstick lying? Make sure you know what you've got.

Just a FYI, I filled an engine with oil today. A clean 8BA car style oilpan with the sump in the middle. Added a couple of pictures, 3 quarts, and then 4 quarts. 5 quarts (gave it time to run down...

Re: Fan Belt Tension Adjuster....

I have to agree here. As long as you have a cherry-picker style engine hoist readily available, it's very simple to roll it over to the vehicle, put a strap ( I use an old piece of ratchet-strap)...

Re: 1952 8Ba flathead wot stay running

Probably one power valve and one spark control valve in the rebuild kit, they aren't interchangeable.

Re: Oil level. Is your dipstick lying? Make sure you know what you've got.

My F1 doesn't have it's original engine, but does have the oil pan and dipstick. With four quarts of oil and a clean oil pan it puts oil level right in the middle of the full mark. Just looked in my...

Re: Dead

If you can check the battery voltage while you try to crank it, or just turn on the headlights, I bet the battery drops to zero. If the battery voltage stays up, then has to be a bad connection.

Re: 1940 dashboard

That looks great! I've heard of that method of painting before but you really did some nice work.

Re: master cylindeer replacement

I agree with Mart, besides the master cylinder you get will be a reproduction of unknown quality.

Re: 1949 F1 ride into town to chase some parts

Here's the story as I was told it:rolleyes:

The fellow I got it from had it in a '35 Tudor, he said it came from a '49 pickup. You can tell it's been cut off because of the "custom" grinding and...

Re: 1949 F1 ride into town to chase some parts

When I brought it home it still had it's original 8RT with 4-speed crash box transmission. The 8RT has some nasty exhaust to cylinder cracks. I put an 8BA together for it and rebuilt a light duty...

Re: Speedometer 1950 F3

The cable just pulled out of my 49. My speedo did the same thing, some screws fell out. Just cleaned things and put it back together.

Re: Mercury Motor I.D.

The Mercury heads could be put on any 8BA style motor. If the crank is 4 inch stroke and the bearing surfaces are repairable, it's worth $400.

Re: 59A low compression #4 cyl

A sticky valve (taking too long to close) could cause your problem too.

Re: 1949 F1 ride into town to chase some parts

Quite pleasurable to drive now. Running, steering, stopping great. I hope to get new tires and the stock wheels/hubcaps back on this year.
