Re: removal of painted pin-striping

Probably best to just say sorry, it's too risky to try and remove them. Like it or lump it.

Re: What size Brake Line?

I'm not sure, but I think F1s use 3/16" pipe.

Re: wheel studs

Call me old fashioned, but don't we use lug nuts on alloy wheels? The shank of the nut extends down the oversize hole in the wheel. It is not normally necessary to fit longer studs.
Like the Mag...

Re: German Ford Hubcap? Need identification.

While not identical, this 1956 Taunus 15M is sporting a simpler cap but it has the same central FK logo. If you look though, the car has wide 5s so it is the centre of a full wheel cover....

Re: 34 flathead runs need some expert opinions

If it's running well don't worry about the compression test. That's my bit of expert advice. Just driving it more regularly will make it better. Don't be afraid to drive it hard too.

Re: eezibleed brake bleeder

I used the cap off a master cylinder that I bought from Rockauto. It is metal and has a secondary cap that screws in with a bleed hole in it. This part of the cap does not have a breather. I...

Jeez, is it part 6 already? OD Output shaft to Ford UJ.

Lots of machining and dodgy welding this week.
Getting the drive from the Laycock overdrive output shaft out into the Early Ford UJ. Hope those welds hold up..

Yes, the cap vent needs to be plugged.

Part 5 of Mart's crazy gearbox swap. Overdrive to Torque tube. Will it work?

Yup Part 5 is up.
I start looking at what it will take to get an early Ford torque tube onto the end of the overdrive, and start cutting the first pieces.

Cheers!

Mart.

Re: Driveshaft won't come apart?

Burly, you have provided next to no information on this post.
It can be a problem withdrawing the axle/torque tube on these models due to clearance around the floor area.
Can you check all around...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

I love that the barn supports all the different levels of the early...

Re: Juice Brake Identity Wanted

The primary shoe is the one that forward rotation of the wheel pushes it against the pivot pin. As the pivot pin(s) are at the top the rear shoe is the primary shoe.

Re: Driveshaft won't come apart?

If you have good access you might be able to get a lever inside the joint and push the shaft out of the joint.

I was going to say take the axle out and leave the shaft in, but the axle will only...

Re: Juice Brake Identity Wanted

Along the same lines as Rich b's comment above, I have seen this conversion before and I think with a little more work it could be improved.
There would be 2 benefits:

Re: How to drain coolant with no mess?

Bruce said it.
I tried it recently and it worked for me.
Watch this video.

Shift rod clearance holes.

Re: 40 pickup owners - measurement please

The wood does not come as far forward as the front mount. There is nothing between the mount and the frame, but it is normal to use some shims there as necessary to aid alignment. 1/16" or 1/8" is...
