Re: 12V vs 6V crab distributor

Depends on what you were starting with and what coil was used. You want something in the 3 ohms range between the coil and any resistance. So if you add an ~1.5 ohm coil it needs ~1.5 ohms of...

Re: Bearing race removal success

It always worked for me, but with just the drift, not the freezing. :)

Re: Help bearing race removal F1 hub

You will most likely need a good set of drift punches for other projects anyway.

Re: advance curves

Totally agree, but have never heard of a recommended timing anywhere near what the torque charts show. 12 degrees at 2000 rpm and all in around almost 3500 rpm?

Re: advance curves

Bubba, I have seen those before and really don't understand them. They do not match what Ford published in the maintenance manual advance tables and it doesn't match with any of the modern dyno...

Re: flathead engine 1941

They have value as an original engine in the early bodies, but would be a problem in a later body, like a 41. Parts are more difficult to come by, rebuild cost are higher and nothing would really...

Re: flathead engine 1941

I wouldn't put a 34 engine in a 41 vehicle for a lot of reasons, if that is what you are referring to.

Re: production of 36 3 windows vs 5 windows

Re: Still needing advise on 52 F1

There is very little to no vacuum at idle, so that is normal. The distributor is seeing the vacuum from the carburetor ports, not manifold vacuum.

Re: flathead engine 1941

I would think any of the 59a engines (46-48) would be a fairly simple install. A 41 or war year engine would be a good option but probably not many of them out there.

Does anyone know what the...

Re: -37 Ford Drag Racing Leaf Springs

Don't know about Sweden, but here in the U.S. any spring shop can custom make you a spring. The last one I had made was $20 I think (that was just the main leaf). Are you looking for a non-original...

Re: flathead engine 1941

In the v8 85-100 engines the blocks are all the same within groups (such as the 59a series), everything else is a bolt on (heads, intake, front cover, water pumps, etc). Almost any of the blocks are...

Re: flathead engine 1941

Any 59a block would be a good fit, but so would other years.

Re: Yankee 730 signal wire gauge

Ford was using 16 gauge on the tail lights but 14 gauge on the brake lights per the manual.

Re: Cam Degreeing/Checking Important

It's not that they can't be built without checking things, it's just that it might not (and that is more like most probably) run as well as it would with everything dialed in.

Re: block quandary

I would go with the .125 bore. It could always be sleeved in the future if needed, by how many miles are you or anyone else going to be putting on it? With care and modern oil it should run a long...

Re: new member needs advice

The Holley carb is fine. The Mallory dual point needs a different curve than most of them come with (which is a Chevy OHV curve). A flathead head doesn't require much advance and wants it all in...

Re: Wiring a voltage regulator

Re: Wiring a voltage regulator

You should see a difference on the ammeter between headlights on and headlights off. Think you are close to maxing out the generator at idle with the lights on. When driving the battery provides...

Re: Wiring a voltage regulator

You are probably not putting out enough amperage at idle to feed the headlights and the ignition. Does the car have an ammeter?
