Re: Early 30s gas station

My folks bought a store and gas station, in 1952. I was just a "Country" type store, with two gas pumps and had the family name on it, "Elliott's Store and Station". I think they sold Mobil (not...

Re: Tire Size for stock wheel:

Besides the 7.00x16, there is also some 6.50x16's, they are both truck tires.

Another option is the car, 215/70/16. I wouldn't put it on anything narrower than 5.5 wide wheel. It's 27.85 tall but,...

Re: Tire Size for stock wheel:

While it's not to dangerous to run wide sidewall tires on narrow wheels, there are things to consider.

These cars ran a aspect ratio of 1/1, meaning the side wall was as tall as it was wide. The...

Re: What year is this advertisement

My guess is also '32, because of the "New 4".

You can get different era's, using the different Ford script type. I can't remember the web page but, I read about that, a couple of years ago.

Re: 1939 Deluxe 2DR Sedan

The picture was taken, about '50, on my grandfathers farm in AR (He and I are on the left). I don't remember but, most likely a chicken hawk.

Re: 59AB sonic test. Good or bad?

I also agree that .100 walls are ok and you will safe at .120.

Although sonic testing was not available in the 50's & '60's I think a lot of guy's got away with ~.090. I know the most common over...

Re: Cam Tech

It is a Pat Kelly program. Search his name with dynamic calculator and it should bring it up.

As promised, I did charts on the L100 and the H-V 12. The info I have on the H-V 12, is that it is a...

Here are some more. The 21 stud cam timing and the pre '49. Again all the specs are the same for all the engines and 8.70 C/R.

I really know nothing about how to port a flathead. All I know is that you do not have much to work with! The 1.312 factory port is very limited, even to how large to can take it. I would be...

I thought I'd start a new thread on cams for the V8, rather than add more to the other thread. But, this will apply to all engines, including, OHV and the L head 6.

There is a lot to cam selection...

Re: purchasing flathead camshafts who do we turn to?

As light as your car is, I think the Max1, would give you a very noticeable power increase and very little low end lose, over the 8CM cam.

The over lap is 20 (8CM) and 27 (Max1). In your car, I...

Thank you for that, Ronnie. Was the LSA 111, making it 1 retarded?

Re: purchasing flathead camshafts who do we turn to?

I have a question for Pete, JWL, Ronnie Roadster or any one else, that might have tried designing their own cams and actually racing them.

How much have you guys experimented with LSA (lobe...

Re: What year did Ford drop the rear oil slinger and go to seal?

Ron, I have a 2.498 main crank, with the double slingers.

I'm guessing it is a one year only ('38) crank but, maybe there is transition period, into '39?
