Re: 8BA in '37 coupe ...

It will fit, but you will still need to do some modifications. First, you will need a '49 to early '51 Mercury (stamped steel) or '48 to '52 Ford truck (cast Iron) bellhousing to bolt the...

Re: The "W" Block

A "W" block is usually an early Chrysler hemi. It is cast into the side of the block. I have a picture of mine somewhere.

Re: Holley 94 accelerator pump helper spring

I think you may have mis-understood my comments. Every 94 I have taken apart had that spring in it; therefore it was probably necessary. Sorry, I can see how my response was unclear.

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

Yes, Also be aware that you will have to find a generator bracket, as the placement of the carburetors on that manifold does not allow for the generator to be mounted in the conventional manner. An...

Re: Holley 94 accelerator pump helper spring

All I can add to this is that the Ford engineers rarely added anything to their automobiles that was not needed. And, if they did, Henry would have quickly shut them down. As to your last statement?...

Re: Weak Spark

If you want a reliable condenser (although it is an externally mounted unit), contact me.

Re: Truck show Ballston Spa

I love old firetrucks; they are really interesting (dual ignitions, etc.)

Re: Mitchell Overdrive

Expensive and very "agricultural" looking.

Re: 53 Ranchwagon flathead motor mounts

Since you are in Missouri (the middle of the good old USA), I would suggest getting the correct mounts. You may thank us for it, but the next owner certainly will.

Re: 226G vs 226H

The idea of an "M" engine (I believe they were 254 ci), intrigues me. Properly set up, I'll bet it would surprise a lot of guys with V8's.

Re: Weak Spark

My (original when I got it) '51 Ford had radio suppression condensers on the voltage regulator, generator, and even the oil pressure sending unit.

Re: Mitchell Overdrive

That is a professional looking installation. I'm kind of surprised about the 50 mph maximum with the 4.11's; they are low, but I had a '36 3-window with a 276" Merc, a '39 box, and 4.11's, and it...

Re: What kind of heads are these - 49 Merc flathead?

Looks like that to me as well. Notice it has an early type fuel pump stand with the oil fill and breather. Like I said before; a "hodge-podge" of parts. Anyone interested in buying it should inspect...

Re: What kind of heads are these - 49 Merc flathead?

It's a hodge-podge of parts, that's for sure. I can't see it clearly, but it looks like the manifold is for a 3 bolt carburetor (94). It's hard telling what it might all be. I wonder how the...

Re: Overdrive lockout cable on a '51 Ford

I have two '51 transmissions and one '50 transmission, so I am well aware of the differences. It's pretty obvious when you can see them side by side.

Greg, That makes a lot of sense, Any chance of getting a close up of that area?

Re: Overdrive lockout cable on a '51 Ford

Emmit,

Thanks for the pictures. They are just what I needed. Some day, maybe I can do you a favor.

I don't have the bracket that goes on the bellhousing, but I think I can make one if I can't...
