Re: Warning about c&g

My experience with C &G as well. Your experience is frustrating, but I'm in the camp that says that you, and not "your mechanic" need to talk with Kyle or Joe.

Re: Tie Rod End Removal

Re: From sealed beams back to original -'38

Am assuming you want to take your truck back to authentic original, rather than the upgrade to sealed beams that didn't come from the factory? I understand the process and you probably don't do a...

Re: 48-6044 Rod, engine radius purpose.

Ah, that makes sense! For whatever reason, my '39 always "chattered" and my '47 does not. Thank you JS for posting the diagrams and your explanation.:rolleyes:

Re: 48-6044 Rod, engine radius purpose.

My '47 Super Deluxe does not have these rods, unlike my '39. Both have 59AB's. Often wondered why they were discontinued?

Re: Valve adjusting

Richard, I'm working on this. You do have to remove the starter, however, to access the ring gear. With engine running, you can pull the new ring gear on as the flywheel rotates to even the fit in...

Re: Throw out bearing questions

As noted above, Red's Headers has a pair that will clear your stock steering box without surgery. Very happy with the ones for my '47.

Re: New Member New car

Fordguy, I got a new regulator for my '47 from Mac VP in Cincinnati. It has a blue cover, but, but you could use your old cover if that's a problem...or even paint it.



Very happy with mine...
