Re: Running without a torque tube center bearing ?

A tubular driveshaft will whip if it is fairly long. The Hughes 500 (369) helicopter had a large diameter aluminum driveshaft for the tail rotor drive but at midpoint there was a damper encircling it...

Re: 39 steering column cover plate

Yes ,the '39 had them. Same p/n as the '37-'38 but the '39 had rounded end of the plate versus square ends on the earlier plate. Not sure of the cable routing.

Re: Replace Flathead with Y-Block?

Re: 1948 ford convertible garnish molding question

On the '46-'48 convertible the chrome welting goes all the way around the garnish. There were small clips that covered where the 2 ends meet. These are almost impossible to find as is the original...

Re: Valve adjusting

AHA! Now you know the reason for the KRW risers. Run the engine, locate loose valve adjustment and adjust while engine is still warm. Will still cause burned fingers.

Re: Whining noise from my 8BA

If you have pretty much eliminated a vac leak from the various vac hoses I think it would be wise to remove the carb and take the body off the throttle base. Then place it on a true smooth surface...

Re: Whining noise from my 8BA

A common problem with the 94 is a slightly warped surface on the body where it meets the surface of the cast iron base thus creating a vacuum leak. It only takes a slight variation to produce the...

That number shows up as a "FRONT SERVO SPRING COMPRESSOR" for Ford automatic trans in my 1952-61 Ford special service tools book.

Re: Valve adjusting

Those are KRW manifold risers and a quote from the KRW catalog states "hunting for noisy valves". "They will give you the inside picture". Not used to adjust the valves but to locate valves needing...

Re: Hubcap restoration

Wrap the drill bit with a number of rounds of masking tape which then becomes a depth stop. Place about I/8" from the tip.

Re: Tail shaft centre bearing

The 1 1/2 ton truck driveshaft does not use the same center bearing as the pass. car. I think Skip only has a replacement for the car. I would try Barnfind 08.

Re: Orange/LA county recommendation for Diff. Rebuild

The speedometer drive is at the front of the driveshaft so if the shaft has sheared behind the speedometer drive gear it would still operate the speedometer.

Re: tool help

The diameter of the flipper on the end of the shaft is 1 9/16". Not sure if this is the measurement you need but it would be the most important. This is off a KRW puller.

Re: Thermostat orientation

Years ago I had seen some old original '42-'48 style hoses that had a noticeable bulge inside the lower end to hold the thermostat. At one time Drake had a picture of the same thing in his catalog.

Re: Thermostat orientation

Only original hoses had the rubber bulge I.D. that would hold the thermostat in place The re- production hoses do not have that and will not retain the thermostat. You must use an alternate method...

Re: Tranny for 60 hp Flatty

No, the V8-60 trans is considerably smaller in size and the input shaft also is smaller.
