Re: 239 V8 serial number decoder

There really are no block serial numbers. If you have the transmission that came with the block it will have the VIN of the car it was installed in. That can kind of tell you where in the...

Re: block quandary

Yeah, 10x is an exaggeration but for changes you can feel, the crank (and pistons) are the single most effective thing you can do. I currently have 5 running cars with flatheads in just about every...

Re: new member needs advice

I have a 6v + ground alternator on my 40 coupe. I took an old voltage regulator, gutted the inside and used it as a terminal, leave the BAT wire hooked to the Vreg, run the output wire from the...

Re: block quandary

The Merc crank makes 10x more difference then the bore. If you are just driving around and not racing, I would leave it at .040. In fact, I have a NOS 59 series engine in my 40 coupe and left it...

Re: Leather seats

I only have 2 cars with leather, tuck & roll in my 32 roadster, and the stock seats in my 40 wagon. Like many, I use the Lexol products and the 19 year old leather in my roadster is maybe softer...

Re: V8 60 question

I think far less. I just put together a display motor for a friend and it had zero cracks anywhere. My guess is that in stock form, didn't generate as much heat as the 85s.

Re: Need to replace oxy-acetylene torch set

Since I got my plasma cutter yeas ago, I can't remember the last time I used my cutting torch to cut. I might have used it years ago when my rosebud was loaned out and I needed to heat something.

Re: Axle Quick fix seals which direction?

Fourspeed, if you do replace them and the axles have grooves where it rides, make a couple 3/16" spacers to move the seal slightly where it runs on the axle. That is easier then putting on a speedy...

Re: Axle Quick fix seals which direction?

Forespeed, Yeah those will keep the oil out of your drum for a while. Keep in mind those are a band aid kind of fix. I would use one on a road trip but I don't think any that you find would be less...

Re: Axle Quick fix seals which direction?

I agree with Kube, by using a micrometer and replacing the banjo gaskets with exactly the thickness that was there, it doesn't take all that long if you have a good spring spreader. Granted, I have...

Re: 'Ford' 'FoMoCo' script,,,, paint/marker (?)

If your car is for the concourse, you might want to leave the script off. That orange script Drake puts on the top 40 radiator hoses should get you a point deduction. Lacquer thinner will remove it.

Re: Thermostats Recommended for 36 Ford?

It depends a lot on how efficient the radiator is, and as mentioned above, how clean the inside of the engine is. Every situation is different. My avatar when my newly rebuilt engine was installed...

Re: Brake shoe interchange

I think it would depend if the bushing that goes in the bottom hole for the later shoe will fit the earlier shoe with the round hole since the later shoe has the hole with 2 flats. You probably know...

Re: 1940 Ford deluxe help with a speaker grill problem

Well, as stated, Repro parts almost never fit well. Could be you got a blem. If none of the Drake speaker grilles fit I think we would have heard here that it was a major problem. I hadn't heard...

Re: 1940 Ford deluxe help with a speaker grill problem

I seem to remember that the grille fits pretty tightly on the 2 vertical side openings of the hole. If no bodywork has been done to the dash, I would carefully file the flat vertical side parts of...

It is similar to a 32 running board brace. Similar but not.
