Re: Dim Headlights on 40:

I'm a big believer in grounds and they are often the problem with electrical issues. But the results you are posting appear to be more than a grounding problem (it is also possible and common to...

Re: Dim Headlights on 40:

You would first have to determine if it is the Generator/Regulator output or the gauge that is the issue. Sounds like you have checked the Gen/Reg, so most likely it is the gauge. Is the wiring to...

Re: D44 R&P pattern

I agree, it would be a good 9 inch or 8.8 inch pattern.

Re: What Gasoline that has NO ethanol in it?

Re: Banjo Gear oil Question.

Most rear axles have a vent built into them, the original Ford banjos got away without one because of the volume of air between the axle itself and the torque tube. One of the things that is often...

Re: Dim Headlights on 40:

I'm mostly repeating what has already been posted, but I would make up some good jumper wires and start doing some checking. See what you get with each.

Re: Best radiator for a Ford 302 in a 47 Tudor?

Might be a good question for the HAMB. But any name brand alum radiator should work. There are radiators set up for this combination, but I do not know any part numbers.

Re: Motor and trans installed today

It depends on the driving conditions. If you are only going to drive it in hot weather, then 140 SAE viscosity would be ok. But in cooler / cold weather you would want the 75W. That is what is...

Re: front axle for 1934 Ford

That would be a 3 inch dropped axle. I would check with Oki Joe and see what he can do.

Nice guy, I like to drop by and talk with him.

Re: front axle for 1934 Ford

Yes, a stock Ford axle (33-34) is ~2 inches. A 4 inch dropped axle is the stock 2 inches plus an additional 2 inches.
