Re: 37 & up car steering gear pittman arm nut size?

Yup. 1-7/16. I picked up a used socket on UK ebay. Snap on 1/2" drive. It wasn't expensive as it is not a popular size.

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

I run antifreeze/summer coolant and use it about 3:1 so it's 25/75 coolant/water. Tend to have mild winters here.

Re: 1936 Ford rearend gear ratio and speed

Engine revs isn't the only consideration.
Engine noise may be reduced but road noise, tyre noise, wind noise, road/tyre induced harshness (vibrations) will not be. You need to consider the brake...

Re: 33 Tranny to Driveshaft Oil Leak

Is the truck lowered or raked? That is what causes the axle to trans oil migration. Big and little tyres add to the effect.

Re: 32 Build Pt15: Master Cyl and lines. 59 Flatty Pt9: Boring. 41 pickup: Oil level

Thanks for the comments fellas. I can see some similarities, there, Glenn. That tool looks a bit less fiddly than mine.

Re: Clayborne engine overhaul stand attachments maybe available

One of the benefits is that you can arrange the deck face to be horizontal. This would be useful if you want to use a portable boring machine. Another benefit is that the engine is supported from...

Re: Identify this engine.

A Mercury crank has a 4" stroke, Ford has 3-3/4" so if you want more torque, the Merc crank is more desirable.

Re: 11-A Distributor Thread Size

If you've stripped it, you could go 1/8 NPT and use an adaptor to get back to 3/16 tube.

Re: 11-A Distributor Thread Size

Rock, no, mate, I just went and checked, it is the fitting for a 3/16 tube, which is 3/8-24 UNF.

A 3/8-24 tap screws in nicely but a 1/8 NPT barely starts and goes tight straight away.

It was...

Re: For US '40 Coupe Folks....Some Serious "Shooby-Dooby Shu Bop"

It's a fun bit of entertainment.

In the comments section someone asks "what game?" and the answer is "Mods for Assetto Corsa".

Re: '40 front fenders

Re: How/where to fill 37 gearbox?

I use some grease similar to the cornhead grease and just use a grease gun to squirt it in there. Just put the end of the gun into the hole and pump (no pressure, just splurging in).

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

I thought the theory proposed is that you want to retard the cam by one tooth.

Undo the gear, rotate the cam a little clockwise and refit the gear one tooth clockwise from where it was previously....

Re: 1941 convertible backfire to carb, with video

Do you think you might have a lazy valve spring, or intermittently sticking valve? Swapping all the parts from a known good car eliminates all of those parts. All that is left is the base engine...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Brian, Forgive me if I've misunderstood, but as the cam turns counterclockwise, turning it counterclockwise one tooth will advance it (? Won't it??).

Re: Bright 32 Radiator Shell?

I might be wrong, but some of the English model Bs made into 1934 had chromed grille shells. I think it was a model 14. It looks like a 32 but has skirted fenders and a chrome 32 style grille.
