I just shined a light into the Weatherhead 59 X 4 and it looks very close to the drawing Don posted. The ferrule looks to be pressed into the nut but it is hard to confirm that.

Apparently people posting in the classified have either forgotten or failed to read the rules for posting. Lot's of stuff showing up without prices lately.

Re: 1936 ford diff gear ratio ID

On the bottom of the center section is a machined area and there should be 2 numbers stamped in it such as 9 (tooth pinion) and 37 (tooth ring gear). Divide the larger number by the smaller one. Like...

Re: Oil Detergent - Rislone ZDDP

We have also changed metals , gone to roller valve train ,variable valve timing, timing belts etc. The engines built today are every bit as different as the oils

Re: Oil Detergent - Rislone ZDDP

The problem today is the engineers and chemists are more focused on federal emission regulations than preventing wear on our old engines.

Re: Let me ask another way

My guess is the LED tail light bulbs are for 6V negative ground. I bought some last year for my 32 pickup and they would work with negative ground and not positive. There was a lengthy thread going...

I saw the bead too, but the north American door striker eliminates the Australian built possibility

Re: Transport available!! to Washington state from Central or northern California

I'll bump it for Mike. He's a good guy and can be trusted to haul for you if anyone has concern about that.

Re: 32 Roadster pick up

It does appear to have a US style door latch striker rather than an Australian style on the B pillars.

Re: rebuilding a pre-36 steering box - parts interchangeability

The sector shafts should be the same size from 32-36. I had my early box machined to accept the 36 bearings and seals and didn't have to touch the sector shaft, granted my car is LHD.

1932 V-8 early engine steady rod brackets

I have a 32 B Pickup with a 36 V8 in it. The center crossmember looks to be an early version. It only has the outer 4 cylinder rod mounting holes and nothing for a 8 cylinder. It also doesn’t have...

Re: Rotor too big for distributor shaft on Ford 8ba flathead v8

It definitely is too big without the clip. The clip is required for the rotor to fit properly without wobbling all over
