Re: Lowering 46 Ford 4 door

Once you start "lowering your car" make sure you have good tire to fender clearance. Lower profile tires might help.

Re: Lowering 46 Ford 4 door

What is an extended spindle? Do you mean dropped spindles? If so, they only work on cars with control arms, like a 50 Mercury.

Re: Fan clearance issue

fortyfords makes a good point. If you use a fan spacer you can have it machined so that it has the fan blade holes in the location you need AND a hub centric "button" can be machined on that spacer....

Re: Getting paint inside boxed in areas?

I would think that "the powder" would not actually be able to squeeze in between all the metal contact joints or surfaces.

Re: Fan clearance issue

Best thing would be to call Drake and ask him. You could also look at after market fan blades to see what 'matches up". I got mine at Super Shops before they folded years ago. Sumitt and Jegs are a...

Re: Fan clearance issue

40cpe; Keep doing research. I know I have seen posts where folks also used the narrow belt pulleys found on stock (two narrow belts) 8BA engines and 51 Merc engines.

Pulley is a 1949-50 Merc. I think the 49-50 Ford pick up 8RT engine is the same.

Here's a few more photos that may help you design a solution. I made the alum. fan pulley back in 2014. BOB DRAKE now sells them at a fair price. Go to his web site.

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

Re: what a job, shuddering fixed and back to work.

Talkwrench: It's great that you have such good friends who are willing and able to help you in your hour of need.

Re: 1940 Ford Convertible Top Frame shoulder bolts

If you can't find them, you could make some by turning down a 3/8 dia. stainless bolt on a lathe and then cut new threads. I have had success doing that.
