Re: Identifying ford dual gauge euro

I don't know...I had one of those very same gauges a few years back. Whilst it resembles 35-36, it will not fit into a 35-36 dashboard, because the sides of the housing protrude outwards too much and...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris, those modern bulbs may or may not work to satisfaction. What is important is that the filaments of the bulb are dead centre of the parabola of the reflector. The beam produced without the...

Re: Turbo Flat Head

I dunno....some years ago, I attended a nostalgia drag...

Re: Replacing screens in '33-'35 horns

Re: 1936 LB Rear Main Seal Retainer

Jerry, Yes, if you do all those modifications, you will definitely cut down on the oil blowing out into the clutch area.

The only new parts in this particular part of the assembly are the shims [bought off of Connelly- the Columbia man], and one nos genuine Ford axle supplied by a great fellow barner. Should be right;...

Re: 1936 LB Rear Main Seal Retainer

Thanks Peter, Jerry, you'll possibly have trouble fitting that pictured original return pipe if you're running a later oil pump, but you should get the idea....I configure mine to suit my application.

Re: 1936 LB Rear Main Seal Retainer

OK, note in the photo of my modified cap, I have fitted a return pipe? If you look at your cap, you'll notice the return hole for the oil is threaded...a very fine thread. Thing is, and particularly...

Re: 1936 LB Rear Main Seal Retainer

These pictures are of a 36 LB rear main cap, like yours, that I modified to take a positive seal. I had to grind the slinger off of the crankshaft obviously. The insert that goes into the block is...

Re: 1936 LB Rear Main Seal Retainer

Yep...you've got a 36 LB...that is the standard 36 LB rear slinger arrangement. Sometime during the 37 production year they changed the rear main cap to accept a diecast arrangement, similar to what...

Re: 60HP rod bearing size
