49 50 convertible overdrive adapter

Pictured is an adapter to mount the solenoid under the transmission in an X frame vehicle. It's different from 51, which might not need it.

Re: Hershey experience

This comment is not meant to be political but observatory. I do not remember ever seeing so many people flying banners and displaying signs for a political candidate. I'm not sure whether it...

Re: UPS loses Package !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How hard would it be to send packages with tracking devices? They may or may not transmit from a warehouse but it's an idea.

Re: NJ race of gentlemen 2019

John Mason and I went 3 years ago to Pismo beach but even though it got rained out we were able to see all the cars and meet the owners. All in all we had a blast.

Re: #4 Piston Removal

Even if it could come out from the bottom it won't be going in easy from the bottom.
I once reconditioned a rod for an MG or Triumph, I forget by getting the piston low enough to remove the wrist...

Re: Unibody on a 49-50 Ford Woddie the same???

I know that is true for cars but I think the woody had mercury hardware so that might be different.

Re: Bearing dimentions

I have taken pics with my phone to accurately read vernier scales. The pics can be enlarged. I think vernier scales will go the way of the slide rule.

Re: No reverse BW R-10

Re: 1949 Ford f5 1.5 ton dump truck need info

Apparently you're not someone who just takes stuff apart without knowing what they are doing and tries to figure it out. You have a pump, a valve and a cylinder connected by hoses. As stated above,...

Re: No reverse BW R-10

I noticed that too. I'm hoping from my picture he can reference how long the shift rail should be. That cut out at the end is to activate the reverse lockout switch.

Re: Rebuilt engine

Not if you block that passage. It's like pouring oil down the engine outlet.

Re: No reverse BW R-10

If you step on the clutch it should go in reverse with the engine running if it tested ok on the bench. What happens when you engage the clutch is another story. Your problem really has me...

Re: Rebuilt engine

Here is the easiest way to prime the oil galleys and pump on an 8ba. With the filter out and the cover off put a hose over the center tube and fill the can. The oil will drip back through the pump...

Re: No reverse BW R-10

I am stumped.

Can you put it in reverse without it running? If so will the engine turn with the clutch disengaged? Like can you start it? I can't understand why this is happening while...

Re: 8BA compression issues

If you can easily hook up an air hose to your spark plug hole that will tell you everything. All you're looking for is where the air is escaping. If you hear it through the fill tube then it's...

Re: Electric lockout on 49 OD

Connect the governor wire to the kickdown switch. As stated above you just eliminate the reverse lockout switch. This is what was recommended by Ford when they failed. Don't worry about the...

Re: Bubba's distributor question

The distributor is an on off switch that does not care about the coil. What does care about the coil is the condenser. Ultimately the condenser is matched to the coil. If the point pit to one side...
