Re: disc brakes & distributor

I have Bendix/Lincoln style brakes and new MT drums front and rear on my 32 - they work really well and the conversion "kit" I bought from the Early V8 Garage (Dennis Lacy) was one of the best...

Re: 1934 steering gear fluid

I use John Deere Corn Head Grease . . . is almost like a thick out and it is wonderful in our early steering boxes! If you want a picture of the 'tube' - can take one when I'm out in my shop later...

Re: ORIGINAL 1933 2-door

Or some combination of Killer Bees, liberal fornication, homeless infestation, 'squadification' or any other sort of debauchery that causes it to NOT be in the dang Midwest! So there . . .

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

Yes - that is my general idea here . . . but this is bench racing, have not compared both blocks up close and personal (though I have both sitting in my shop).

I'll take some pictures for shits...

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

Yes - though the coolant passages in the head/block for 49-53 are such that the water volume is at the back . . . the 59X gaskets and heads are the same front and rear.

Anyway - more to...

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

Note: One thing I would explore a bit more if I was doing this today is to rework the rear water passages on the 59X block to allow more water flow (like a 49-53 block) and I might even reduce the...

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

It is not really a big deal . . . I ran 49-53 heads on a 59x engine in my 34 Ford. Yes, I had to figure out how to "shim" the waternecks (with a piece of rubber tubing), but outside of that, nothing...

Re: 1936 ford diff gear change

What gear ratio are you trying to get too? I just installed a set of 3.54's in my late 32 style axle - was a bit of work, but nothing too bad as long as you're used to mechanical work, have a...

Re: 8BA compression issues

I'd surely talk to that supplier and inform them of the 'drama' that this whole wrong coil situation has caused you. They should at least take the coil back . . .

Glad you have it up and running . . . and I bet you learned a lot in the process. After all the time, effort and money - there is nothing like hearing it start for the first time! Now go drive it...

Re: Vibration - rumble

What do the axle tube bearing surfaces look like and what is a precision mic show for both sides? I wonder if the right side is a lot more worn than the left side? I could see that bearing causing...

Re: 1939 Mercury sedan coin bank car

Re: 8BA compression issues

One thing to know Mr Laser is that in many cases if you find a old NOS condenser, it can be shot inside. I would get a new NAPA Echlin condenser - but maybe wait until your next set of tests. It is...

Re: Oil pump p/up to pan clearance

And when you crack the typical braze weld from the pickup tube to the oil-pump bolt flange - then the pickup falls off and you buy a new engine . . . yippee!

Re: Oil pump p/up to pan clearance

I usually run mine at about 1/4" clearance - but anything up to about 1/2" is just fine.
