Re: weber carb

Slick, and a great tutorial for rebuilding a carb. How about one for a 97, it would be a lot simpler.

Re: anti theft measures used?

Always a battery kill switch. If it's real valuable, the ramp truck will out fox anything we can come up with. Somebody here suggested a locking car cover. Out of sight, out of mind.

Open driveline to 6 spline pinion

Is there a Ford U Joint flange for a driveshaft that fits the Ford Banjo 6 spline pinion ? I see the 42-47 commercial axle in the Green bible has a tapered pinion with key. Thank you Fordbarners.

Re: Sealed water pump bearings

Thank you Bruce. I have replaced the bushings with sealed bearings before. I got them from Chuck's Trucks, but not sure of the country of origin. That's why I asked. So the long & short of it is, the...

Re: Balancing a '40 crankshaft pulley

The shop did balance a pulley with the crank, but that was before I decided to but the 59L in the '40 coupe, which has a different pulley. I will get both the pulley and fan balanced as Pete...
