Re: Split Lock Washers On Main Bearing Caps Of Flathead Motor

Canadian C69A engines use the same setup; spring washers under centre and rear main cap bolts. Question is; why did Ford do that? Earlier engines used studs with tie wire to prevent nuts/studs...

brass fittings

I'm seeking two weatherhead fittings 7732; Ford #91D-2131
These allow regular 1/4" brake line fittings to screw into rear Bendix wheel cylinders. Thank you, Brian

Re: 59a Main bearings replacements

Probably cheaper from Sweden. I find USA postal charges to be the most expensive of anywhere in the world.

Re: Radiator Fan Differences

35's, with their sloping radiators, need to have the fan mounted on the generator. You'll have precious little room to mount anywhere else

Re: 59 A Con Rod ID

Phil, No, these are two different con rods and each has separate bearings, 8BA bearings are thinner than the 29A style. Either type will work on your large journal, twin oil hole cranks.

Re: 59a Engine Failed Big Time.

Appreciate all advice and comments.


Ok, in my opinion, do the work yourself. Then you know what you've got. Don't try and get it on the cheap. It is getting harder and harder to find, for...

Re: Radiator cap pressure AV8 build

Yeah, but the water pumps in our old fords don't take that sorta pressure....Does your AV8 even need a pressure cap? I'd try for the least amount and go from there....

Re: Anyone order brake line from the Stop Shop?

Re: 1938 Ford standard clutch assy.

I 'think' early Jeeps run an 8 1/2" Auburn pressure plate. Could you possibly adapt one of those in? i run Auburn clutches on my motors [not Jeep though], and love them!

Re: My wife hates crankshafts...

Murre, you're lucky she only hates crankshafts; my wife hates all my 'crap'. She wouldn't bring a coffee out to my shed, rather she'll yell out from the safety of the house that's coffee's made, and...

Re: Anyone order brake line from the Stop Shop?

Yes, I have, I brought into NZ rolls of their cupro-nickel brake tubing, stainless armour and stainless nuts. All have performed perfectly.

Re: 1936 alum. heads

To add...you'll need to determine if your engine has domed or flat-top pistons, in order to obtain the correct heads.

Re: What do i have here...21-stud hybrid ?

I 'think' these blocks have a high nickel content too; I bet the water jackets are real clean- not all scaled/rusty?

Re: Brake Adjusters

Yes, those are 36...the links are missing. Actually, Ted's floaters are of very similar concept to those 36 units.
Also, Flathead Ted is from New Zealand, not Aussie....lol

Re: 35 fan

Actually, a 35 fan is smaller dia than a 37. However, gene mount on a 37 intake is lower than 35-36.
