Re: Which pressure plate to order?

I never have owned an 8BA nor heard of a 9 1/2" old Ford clutch. Learned something new!
Bob1972, is that engine an 8BA?

Re: Which pressure plate to order?

What size was the disk that came out? My guess is what you have is a flywheel that accepts a 10" clutch.

Re: Seized Flathead - is it worth it?

The value is really just the block. Since you can't verify it is usable, and the % is small that it is, $500 seems way too high without a money back guarantee. You will spend a fair amount of time...

Re: Dual carb linkage

What has been said above X2. I have 2 cars with dual carbs, my avatar has 97s, my 5w has 81s. I only use 1 choke which is plenty for each car.

Re: New Member New car

The Early Ford V8 Club of America has books on the different years that describe what is correct. Go to their website and purchase the book that covers your year. That would be a big help I would...

Re: Whats the hole for?

The hole is for the special nut that holds the radio in at the top, the antenna rod goes through this up to where it exits to the outside either in the top or above the glass depending on if it is a...

Re: 1940 tudor deluxe hood latch help needed!

There is a secondary lever that is rounded on the end that has a spring that goes forward that may have broken. If that lever that contacts the cross piece at the top of the grille is in the wrong...

Re: 1932 Ford Frame

I am guessing that the physical dimensions of the frame will determine the cost more then the weight. As Karl stated, 2 people can easily carry a frame. The times I have carried one end or the...

Re: 1932 serial number starts with D5

David, was thinking in the DMV database that may have been a possibility, not that they would have known it was an early production car, but an older assembled vehicle not a current year one. Have...

Re: 1932 serial number starts with D5

The class being "AE" might be assembled early or something like that which would be a clue.

Re: 1932 ford frame differences

Andy pretty much covered it. All 3 crossmembers had differences throughout the production run. I believe the K member had the most changes, maybe 4. I think the rails did not change. DavidG...

Re: 1940 Radio Installation

The main mount for the radio is the nut at the top of the dash, those hooks pull the rubber that goes around the speaker up tight against the inside of the dash. I have both Philco and Zenith radios...

Re: Woops. What next

I think there is a better chance then not that the coil is wasted. I know of a couple of guys who left the switch on and had to have Skip redo their coils. I hope you get lucky on the points and...

Re: 1940 Radio Installation

Hooks go through holes in the dash, wing nuts on back side of radio bracket. The hook should be smaller in diameter then the hole enough to go in there and line up with the radio.

Re: 1940 Radio Installation

On both my 40s, those holes go straight up. The hooks are bent greater then 90. Look straight back toward the dash from the holes in the radio brackets and you will see the holes.

Re: Sooty, black plugs ???????

Re: Protecting a bare block

I too like the LPS3 product. I put it on flywheels and clutch covers that have been on a rotary surface grinder. Lasts years. More like a wax then grease and as rotor said, it is easy to remove.
