Re: Grand Cherokee rear to 1935

I've got a 03 GC, and it does NOT have a 44. I wish it did. And, whatever rear I have, is 3.73. I live in the mountains, and 3.73 (with OD) works good for me.
Seems to me that an Exploder rear would...

Re: 34 front engine mount /water outlet

Charlie's repair is GOOD.
I also have a pair that are available. Some rust-out on ends, but still usable. They have the part # cast on.

Re: About half Model A related

In days long gone by, the shop where I bought my tires habitually changed the tires WITHOUT removing the wheel from the vehicle. This was in the 1950's, and the tire size was 6:00-16. With tubes....

Re: Is this an ok radiator?

I don't see that anyone has posted issues with electrolysis... I was losing radiators at the rate of about one per year in a 96 Bronco. Except towards the end of my aluminum experience, when the rate...

Re: Mallory distributor

I probably qualify as 'old', and in many ways 'cheap'. But, in this case, cheap has nothing to do with it.

Re: Which pressure plate to order?

If it's a 48, then WHICH 48? If it came from a car, it would be a 59-type. If it came from a pickup, it would be an 8BA. Check 8BA clutch stuff. I think you will find a 9-1/2.
If it's 48 car,...

Re: Need a Mechanic. SoCal.

Used to be, Jon Roberts, Irwindale off-ramp, 210 fwy. I think the business name is Roberts Auto Sales, or something similar. 'Course, Richard at Early V8 Garage is also a source.

Re: Optima battery support bracket/carrier for a '34

I made a carrier that is a duplicate of the original, except made a hair taller for the Optima. No pictures, but be assured, it looks like original except for the height dimension. Are you willing to...

Re: 34 ford top seal

For whatever it's worth... I used small screws, just as you have mentioned. It's been awhile, and I'm not sure, but I think I used 4-40, and ran a tap into the gutter below to accommodate them. As I...

Re: 21 Stud Head Gasket

I have some very old composite 21 stud head gaskets. By old, I mean un-used, old stock. I don't know how to identify them, except that they are marked Victor 1002K. Couple bucks for the postman, and...

Re: 34 ignition lock

I would try VERY hard to get that key out. If you are lucky enough to find an original lock cylinder, they are quite expensive. And, I used an aftermarket cylinder, which worked, but was never very...

Re: F1 steering in a Model A

This is the way that some of the 'pro's' do it. I've seen some done by the old, original Pete & Jakes done this way. Slick.

Re: V8 Stuff on HAMB

How about a brief 'point-me-in-the-right-direction' ? I've tried looking on FB and Instagram, and I'm not savy enough to figure out how to look.

Re: Converting 1940 Ford backing plates to self-energizing brakes

I've seen a writeup on how the guy in Dallas did it. With enough searching, you should be able to find it. For him to do it, it was posted as very pricey. But, if you find the article, there is...

Re: 1941 Convertible- 10,000 Original Miles !!!

I'm basically a skeptic, and I don't believe I'm yet convinced. How many (presumably senior) school teachers would maintain a car like that with those accessories, skirts, spotlights, non-functional...

Re: Help with Engine dating

That IS interesting... the 6, and the 9, and the 1, are dead give-aways. Those stamps were, and are, generally not commonly the ones WE have.
Good 'catch'.

Re: Help with Engine dating

I'm sure you can find lots of old threads on the Ford parts system. Briefly, the '5' in 59 indicates the year that the part number was released for production. In this case, 1945. The '9' indicates...
