Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

I must say, haven't seen this little "splash pan" trick before!

Re: Charging System Will Not Work Under A Load

It is surely not a 32 Generator unless somebody changed the front of it - as a 32 had a post mount, not a T-Slot mount like all other years (except maybe some early 33 production).

But, as noted...

Re: AFR tuning

I would not lean it out - I'd be very comfortable with those numbers. Keep in mind that your AFRs spiked on full throttle, so you might want to check your accelerator pump settings - is the "push...

Re: AFR tuning

Making sure your timing is correct is the most important initial tuning thing you need to do (before worrying about AFRs).

I usually run about 24 degrees total advance in a naturally aspirated...

Re: Early block/late crank question

Like Brian mentioned, I've never seen a 99A (239 Mercury or WWII Industrial) type block with tin-can sleeves.

I've only seen this type of sleeve in replacement engines for the 3.0625 bore 221...

Re: 59AB bearings

I'm with FlatJack, you need to use a precision "barrel" type mic - whether analog or digital, you cannot use a dial caliper type mic for this purpose (analog or digital).

Having a high quality...

Re: AFR tuning

I have both AFR meters and EGT bungs in the headers of my 284 cubic inch Merc. Also, I've done a LOT of dyno tuning of various race/performance engines. Don't spend any time worrying about idle AFR...

Re: 59AB bearings

Note: If you don't have a bearing mic, you can use something like a wrist pin on the inside of the bearing and a 1" mic to obtain accurate bearing thicknesses. Then, the math is pretty easy to...

Re: Early block/late crank question

Brian up above gave you the part numbers for the necessary components to convert the rear main sealing system to be like the later ones (actual rear main seal).

I use the upgraded seals from...

Re: 59a oil pump capacity.

If it was mine, I'd put a later 49-53 pump in it - with the correct pickup (which Speedway has) . . . for added volume and pressure. Then, stretch the front oil-pressure relief spring so the one in...

Re: 59AB bearings

Also, if you're having the block honed, you should really have a good valve job done to it as well - by somebody who has the correct flathead mandrels and knows how to do the work. No reason to NOT...

Re: 59AB bearings

Looks like it was probably sitting for awhile, so I'd pull the crank, have it hot-tanked and have all the journals micro-polished. I'd probably ScotchBrite the bearings with lacquer thinner as well...

Re: Early block/late crank question

There is nothing wrong with a 39 Mercury block/engine . . . just as good as any other 239 as far as I'm concerned. If you want to put the 8BA in it, then my suggestion is to change the front of the...

Re: Big Boys Heads

Come to think of it, I think we used pre-heat treated 7075 material.

I think the most painful part of the head project is that we did not have a mill big enough to put the block in and use the...

Re: Early block/late crank question

With the assumption that it has a Mercury engine with the larger 3 3/16+ bore, you should be able to get the later 8BA rods through the bores. If it was a Ford engine with the 3 1/16 bore (221...

Re: Open car chrome plated trico wiper motor

Hey Gang, while we're at it . . . anybody happen to have a 1934 Roadster wiper motor . . . and in dire need! Drop me a PM if you have such a beast and are willing to part with it. Thanks!

Re: Offenhauser 400 Heads Value

Obviously you're talking about 49-53 heads, BUT here is a fun fact (that actually makes sense if you know the details of the flathead design). The original 39-48 Edelbrock heads had cast chambers...

It is actually over the intake valve. I've not had the luxury of talking to the original designer, though Jerry Branch was pretty much one of the gurus of taking the factory KR design and making...

The better news is that if a 'Winter Project' happened to find a way to get going, I already have rough SolidWorks models to work from (though they are quite preliminary).
