Re: Unusual carburation on Flathead V8ís

I can't see it very clearly, but I think that's a 4G.

Re: Unusual carburation on Flathead V8ís

You're probably right. I had a bunch of parts laying around and I thought I'd try it. I had zero dollars in the attempt.

Re: Tachometer Hook-up 40 Flathead

Unless you have converted to 12 volts negative ground, or have a quite expensive (and rare) 6 volt positive ground tach (Westach), it going to be difficult. If you are 12 volts, negative ground and a...

Re: Unusual carburation on Flathead V8ís

This is probably not what you wanted to see, but here are some pictures of my attempt to put a Quadrajet on a flathead. I figure if the would run on a 3.8 liter Buick, they could be made to work on a...

Re: 36 rear drum

I have heard that you can loosen the axle nut a turn or two, and then drive around in some vigorous "figure eights".

This is NOT recommended; the best way is to buy, borrow or steal a proper...

An Allard maybe? There have been stranger things.

Re: Ol man thinkin & seeking to learn

In case anyone is interested, we are in the process of field testing original pre-war Ford script condenser cases (both '32-'36 and '37-'41) with modern severe duty film capacitors inside them. These...

Re: non restrictive aircleaner

"Chap52" - What kind of foam is that? Is it something special? I would think just plain foam rubber stuffed into the scoops would be quite restrictive. No criticism, just a little curiosity.:confused:

Re: 8BA in '37 coupe ...

Good move on buying the 8BA! I haven't run into a reasonably priced runner around here for years.

Re: Choke control on a Mercury intake

I'd keep looking. I have done this several times with both integral and divorced chokes on Mercury manifolds. If you have the parts, it falls into place like it was designed to be. The problem with...

Re: non restrictive aircleaner

If it doesn't flow enough the way it is, it looks like you have enough room to stack one filter element on top of another. That's what I did with the 2GC on my '51. You just need to make longer...

Re: 94 Carb

The later Holley 2100's and 2110's (used in '55-'56 Ford's, for one). If you have a "59" series 94 on your car, you don't need the spark valve.

Re: 8BA in '37 coupe ...

The only definite advantage I can see is that if you should want to do some modifications to the engine down the line, or need to rebuild it, parts for the later engine are cheaper and easier to come...

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

Just what is "one of these"? It looks like a single plane manifold; how does it run? Not criticizing, just curious.

Re: Ropy Nacewicz Hardware business reopen date

There is a spot on the thread that the O/P has access to. One of the options is "Thread Tools" that will allow you to change the title. While you're at it, check the spelling of the last name

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

Yes, you can run those with a progressive linkage (the front carb is the primary), but as "JSeery" says, the fuel distribution is not the best. Those things are always a compromise. If you want to...

Re: 8BA in '37 coupe ...

Where did you get those numbers? A 59A and an 8BA put out almost exactly the same amount of power. In your initial post, you said you have a "1940 85 hp. engine in my car now". That would not be a...

Re: Great resource for ARP studs and hardware

This is good news. It seems that head stud kits are getting to be boutique items priced only for the "rich and famous" (I save all of the good 8BA head bolts I can find).

Ya' know, I was in your camp until about 3 months ago, when I replaced the points on the Mallory dual point on the '51 Merc in my '51 Ford. For some reason, that particular setup didn't have the...

Re: starting problems

He's right of course. In the course of going bad, the condenser usually loses capacitance, which leads to material transfer between the points. If you find you have a bad condenser, at least check...
