Re: Flathead Friday. New project. Rusty Crusty Flatty. VIDEO.

Thanks guys. The lift bracket wasn't my idea, I saw it mentioned somewhere. (Probably here).

The motor does have the extra port, but I can't see any plugs in the passages.

Flathead Friday. New project. Rusty Crusty Flatty. VIDEO.

I bought a flathead that is in rather poor condition. I thought it might make an interesting little project and would be a good subject for a series of videos. Will it run? No chance. It might one...

Re: 35 axle housing

The predominant side for wear is the underside of the housing. So if you have a little wear on one side, you can swap the housings to put the worn part on the top side. You don't normally get wear as...

Re: Help: Reverse eye leaf spring problem 34 Ford

Can I just make a simple point. Not calling anyone out.

You CAN reverse a 32-34 rear spring main leaf by simply re-arching.

You flip the leaf end for end and turn it upside down, then re-arch...

Thanks for looking, Guys, I have been supplied with some dimensions.

Mine is possibly a...

Re: 32 axle bent twist ?

As tight as you can, bearing in mind you want to end up with a split pin hole lining up. 100lbs ft plus. (I don't use a figure, just v. tight with a 30" bar.)

Re: Frame Webbing Installation

Thanks from me, too, on the rear mount detail. I had to fix some stress cracks on my 32 sedan body in that area so once it comes off the backburner it will get a spring included.

Re: Tranny info and test?

It also has the long 32 type lever for the clutch release. That would be useful for when you want to do a 32.

Depending on how authentic you want the 34 there are later transmissions that will...

Re: Transmission problem on 41 ford car

Try jacking up one rear wheel (with the usual safety precautions) and rocking the wheel back and forth. Sort of rattle the trans up a bit.
Try moving the levers directly at the side of the trans....

Re: 32 axle bent twist ?

Without the parts in front of me it's hard to say exactly what is going on.

The bosses on the axle should be 2" and the top and bottom faces should be flat and parallel to each other. That is the...

Re: spark knock under load

Knock the timing back a little. Was it ever timed with a light? Do you have a timing mark?
The timing adjuster is on the usa drivers side of the distributor and would need to be loosened and moved...

Re: Thanks for the advice, still need more

Dunno. I'd use manifold, but maybe someone else can say if venturi would be better.

Re: Thanks for the advice, still need more

2, Not used one.
3, Again, no experience on that model.

Back to the scheduled programme. 41pu gets a new fuel gauge.

Reverting to the rolling resto series on the pickup, I fit a cheap fuel gauge and sender. I got this for less than 12 off ebay and I was quite impressed. I cover adapting the unit to the 41 tank,...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Leave it alone as much as possible and just take care of any mechanical/safety issues. As I said in a previous post talking about over restoration: I said "I tend to under restore my heaps". Lol.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Wow. Thanks for posting the story so far mike. This is an excellent subject. While your and my approaches to restoration are at polar opposites, I really appreciate the way you do what you do.

Re: Spark Plug Protrusion into Head?

Tubs, would it be worth "claying" that plug on an engine to check for clearance to the valve?

I guess it would be a good idea when trying any plugs that protrude past the head surface.
