Re: Looking for exhaust port layout drawing

Make all the holes bigger than 7/16" so the adaptor can fit both sides. 1/2" is ok.

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Merc, just as a sanity check is the discrepancy in the pulley in the right direction to indicate slippage (or some other reason for turning due to load).

Re: Vibration - rumble

Can you describe what it was like? Sounds bad from your comment. Worse than before?

Re: Torque Value for rear wheel axle nut?

100 ft/lbs is nowhere near tight enough.

Re: rear axle nut torque

I'm not going to say that is wrong but I believe it should be much higher than 100 ft/lbs.

Re: stromberg 97 metal fatigue?

Ooyah!

I've always been a 94 guy, they seem easier to find here. Never had a 97. I hope you can find a decent used part to repair it.

Re: 59A Flywheel Machining & Clutch refitting..

Phil, glad you found the culprit. I'm a little concerned that you had a 2mm gap and a washer took up that gap. Is the washer 3mm thick? You need to be absolutely sure the bolts are applying full...

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

You could use the cable tie method to see if the TDC marks align with actual TDC on the motor.

I did a video on it.

Re: 59A Flywheel Machining & Clutch refitting..

Phil, take everything off and test fit a bolt into a hole. It should end up with less clearance than the combined thickness of the pressure plate and a lock washer.

The bolts may be correct but...

Re: cant figure out fire to dizzy

While it may be desirable to get the correct condenser long term, for the sake of troubleshooting your problem, wouldn't virtually any condenser do the job? You could swap in the visually correct...

Re: Problem with front axle made of a mixture of parts.

If you're using a 34 type wishbone they favour the tie rod being above by the way they are shaped. You will need to retaper the holes in the spindles so the ends can go in from above and you will...

Re: 59A Flywheel Machining & Clutch refitting..

The only thing I can think of is (might be wrong) that the bolts are now too long and are bottoming before pulling the pressure plate down. I think I'm right in saying the 59A has blind holes.

You...

Re: Flathead Friday. Bust out the Buma! And the BFH! Boring for liners..

Thanks for the responses, fellas. The liners were in the freezer roughly an hour. Only on No.2 did I get the effect I expected. That one had no hylomar at the top of the bore, that might have made...

Flathead Friday. Bust out the Buma! And the BFH! Boring for liners..

I finally get the Crusty flathead block set up and in a position to start boring for liners. Four of the bores were so badly deteriorated a liner (sleeve) is the only viable repair. The basis of this...

Re: Where has billben/flathead gone

Re flat towing: If you prop the clutch pedal down it allows the natural drag in the gears to keep things turning and circulate oil around the box.

Hi Neil.

Well, that is a snapshot capture of the site at some time in the past. It has already gone and you can't guarantee all the links will work.

Re: Vibration - rumble

That hub/drum looks like a 32-34 to me. They're supposed to be used with 1.5" brake shoes. If you're running juice brakes they're 1.75" wide. I have that setup on my 33. The shoes will rub...

Re: leaking brake fittings 47 1 ton pickup

Are the rear wheel cylinders finished with a flat surface for the copper washer to seat on to? I've never dealt with truck parts, but know the car cylinders don't have such a surface.
