Re: 1934 ford coupe Rear end to high

Longer shackles are really not a good idea on the early suspensions unless some type of pan bar is added.

Re: 1946 Mercury 12v Wiper Bench Testing Help.

I tried reading over the installation instructions, quickly, so not sure I totally understand them. But, it looks like it is grounded through the wiper housing, so anyway to get a ground from the...

Re: flathead engine temps?

Something along these lines have to be going on, don't think the radiator is heating up the coolant! :)

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

He checked that the mark on the cam gear lined up with the mark on the crank gear. The current question is if the cam gear is mismarked.

Re: flathead engine temps?

I would take the temp reading at the exit of the head where the radiator hose connects, the metal, not the hose itself. And the other reading at the inlet to the water pumps, again, the metal, not...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

From Ross's original post on this topic:

"Side distributor timing set for 1/2 increment advance, like every other flathead I've had which was correct. Net is again 25 degrees advance at idle....

Re: 1941 woodie wiring issues

I think a better approach is to determine the problem before jumping to a solution. :)

Re: 52 F1 oil seal

I think it's to late to correct it now. For future reference, always mark a pinion nut before you remove it. The torque spec is all you have to go on now, most likely will be ok.

Re: 1941 woodie wiring issues

I think the claim is that it has a new harness, it is just connected incorrectly or there is a bad component in the circuit.

Re: 52 F1 oil seal

Just remember you're messing with the pre-load on the pinion. Need to mark the nut well and be sure it gets back to the same location.

Re: rear end identification

Don't think there is a lot of difference in the axles themselves. What are you attempting to figure out?

Re: rear end identification

Well, if it has the original backing plates, 37-38 were cable brakes and 39-40 were hydraulic.

Re: 33 Tranny to Driveshaft Oil Leak

I think the only way to really stop this is to install one of the seals that is made to fit where the torque tube connects to the axle center section. This is an aftermarket part made to address...

Re: thermostat

Yep, need to check it with an IR gun to know what it is really reading. Thermostats should not have any impact on the maximum operating temperature.

Re: 1941 woodie wiring issues

The light switch should have two terminals on one side and three terminals on the other side.

On the two terminal side, the one toward the rear of the vehicle should be marked R (the marks are...

Re: 1941 woodie wiring issues

This has nothing to do with fuses, something is wired wrong, the brake and tail lights would normally have nothing to do with the dimmer switch. But, it might be possible for a connection through...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Easiest thing at this point, at least in my mind, would be to replace the timing gear or try moving it a notch over and recheck the valve timing.

Re: thermostat

Thermostats bring the engine up to operating temperature quicker and maintain a minimum temperature. Higher engine temperatures improve lubrication, helps remove blowby contamination of the oil,...

What type of wiring harness was used, is it one of the original cloth covered types, or one made up wire by wire? There are several connections on the light control switch, seems like either the...

Re: 49 Ford F1 project. What am I getting into?

Think some photos here might help straighten out what you have and how it is setup.
