Re: Which Cam

OK. I don't see why anyone, after looking at the specs of all cams available for your engine, would even consider the 77B. I went through this a couple of years ago when I was deciding whether to put...

Todd,

Just curious; have you tried the condenser I sold you?

Re: Looking for exhaust port layout drawing

Who makes flathead exhaust gaskets that are one piece per side? I have only seen the individual port kind.

Re: Turbo encabulator(might not be a ford product)

If you think that's tough, take a gander at "The Copper Clapper Caper" with Jack Webb and Johnny Carson sometime.

Re: '35/36 Sedan Delivery interior photos needed

I love Sedan Deliveries, but they have terrible rear vision unless you add some honkin' big outside mirrors on them, which would be a shame with a vehicle like that!

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Boy, I don't know. If the front pulley was that far from being all the way on, I would expect it would be impossible to keep the fan belts on.

Re: Drop Axle Installation

There is one more thing that may be of interest to you. Some people have had better luck pulling the perch pins out of the axle rather than pushing them out. I know there is a thread on the H.A.M.B....

Re: Built a louver press

That's all very cool. All I know about louvers is that a guy in high school had 4 rows punched in the hood of his '50 Ford. It looked good, but from then on he had to contend with rusty spark plugs.:D

Re: NO Bubba? then who

I agree with the above. It's really rude to ask a guy who has problems finding time to run his business for a freeby.

Re: What Electric Pump do you recommend?

It sounds like a good idea to me (I could never really get my mind around "flow through" electric pomps). However, why not put the filter between the tank and the first tee and get filtration on both...

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Just remember, the "dimple" on the pulley is at 2 degrees BTDC.

Can you post a picture of the burgundy condenser? I am having trouble determining what you are referring to.

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Is that an advance timing light? I have had two of them, and they both went bad shortly after using them. I would follow "JWL"'s advice.

Re: Problem with front axle made of a mixture of parts.

Speedway has the dropped tie rod ends. They say they are for '48-'60 Ford truck, but they will fit '37-'48 spindles.

Re: 1936 pickup changing motor to a mercury motor

As to any increase in performance, the engine originally in the vehicle was rated from the factory at 85 HP. If you were to install a '52-'53 Mercury engine (rated from the factory at 125 HP) you...

Re: Barrett Jackson

How about some detail pictures of the rear fenders (especially the rear tips) or the cowl sides? It looks like this is a "put-together" car, so that may not even be definitive. I am starting to see...
