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: 1940 Ford hinge replacement

I had some 33 door hinge pinss I could not get out. I used the tool I think you are referring to. Left it in place and tightened it as much as reasonable and let it set. Every day (or a couple of...

Re: Wiring a voltage regulator

I would start by checking the voltage at the B terminal on the voltage regulator and at the (-) battery post. It should be somewhere in the 7.2-7.4 voltage range. BUT, the generator is not going to...

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?

Re: 1934 Ford Sedan Delivery

With the half bellhousing the blocks are the same length. The difference is the front bolt-ons. You will need the motor mount adapters to get the correct height and side-to-side spacing.

Re: Lifting a 8ba engine

I use one that I made that is similar to the one Stumpy's sells. Very similar to the one I use on 5.0 FI engines.

Re: 1934 Ford Sedan Delivery

As long as any modification made are easily reversed what difference does it make? Not sure what all the concern is with modifications/upgrades that do not damage the original vehicle.

Re: 34 coupe seat info please

I have his pattern set somewhere, was going to use it and then my son decided to head in a different direction. I could try and find them if you have any interest.

Re: 34 coupe seat info please

Someone on the HAMB made a pattern off an original a while back. I ordered a set from him. If you are interested in that as I remember there was a fairly detail thread also.

Not sure if this...

Re: 1936 Ford Pickup - Electric Radiator Fan

Also be sure you have the amperage to run the fan, some of them draw more amps than you have available with a generator.

Re: 35 transmission

You still need to know what gears are in the original case. If the tower was changed it is possible the gears were changed. And if not, that later tower will not be working correctly.

Re: 1937 and 1938 cowl sides ?

That would seem odd as the is so much difference between 38 std and 38 dxl front ends. But I have never compared a 37 to a 38 dxl.

Re: Low cranking voltage

Did you put anything on the connections when you put it back together? A little grease can help with oxidation and corrosion.
