Re: Need to know

Hey Hope - I agree with Ronnie . . . the 'water glass' type of sealers are excellent and should work. I use Moroso Ceramic Seal . . . because I can easily order it from Jegs and they are 15...

Re: 1938 Flathead V8 Race Motor-What’s it worth?

Hopefully you or somebody who is into early racing boats will pick this up and restore the hydro to its former glory. Now I realize there are very few folks that do that - but it is the best thing...

If that is the wall thickness, then this is what you'll need to turn/grind the original down by. :D

Re: 1932-34 Ford 3.54 reproduction gears

I just installed a set in my 32 last summer - did not need to do what you did, but I did need to clearance the bell on the ring gear side - such that the ring gear didn't touch and grind on it. I...

Re: 59a Engine Failed Big Time.

On the rod that broke, is the big-end still on the crank? Or is it all gone as well? My guess is that either the big-end seized on the crank (due to lack of oil pressure), or the cap came loose and...

Re: 38 heads

Re: 38 heads

The engine should have domed pistons and you should be able to run what are commonly referred to as 39-48 center outlet heads. The 24 stud engines came out later in 38, so it should basically be...

Re: Speedo changer for Columbia 2 Speed

I think the real issue will be the diaphragm . . . if it is shot (and it probably is), then you'll need to find some sort of replacement. This is the same issue with the dual-diaphragm Columbia...

Glad you got it back . . . that was an important milestone in this situation.

Re: 39 Mercury FYI head gaskets

Okay - have to ask, how do you know it is a Mercury engine? What are the bore sizes and what else can you give us?

Re: 39 Mercury FYI head gaskets

Typically the 39-42 Ford 221 cubic inch engines have the trapezoidal hole in the center.

Given the amount of water holes on the deck of a 38-48 engine (any of them), I would not worry about having...

Re: Fuel pump collision switch

There are a lot of scenarios - that don't involve a ruptured tank or line. Just think about if you happen to tip the car over on it's side - you're in a ditch. Gas starts to pour out of the carb,...
