Re: 1950 Rearend Disassembly

Thanks, everyone. I do have the green shop manual but I couldn’t really make sense of this part and the diagram didn’t give me confidence.

If nothing else could be holding it up then I’ll get it...

Re: 1950 Rearend Disassembly

Yes. Axles were completely out. But the thingy still won’t come all the way off. Gets hung up around 1/2” off the surface of the housing.

1950 Rearend Disassembly

Slowly getting back to work so the progress on the project is slowing down. This whole COVID thing made me realize how much work gets in the way of me doing things I want to do.
Anyway, I tried...

Re: Mystery part

And maybe the speedo being tilted is creating an illusion, making other parts seem to be more or less sloped. I’m going to try and clean it up and straighten the Speedo and take a better more...

Re: Mystery part

Wow. really? I was not expecting that. My family has had this car since the late 60s. I'm sure one of my uncles put that there. But none of my family members have had a 30s anything as far as I know.

Re: 1959 Coupe Header question

I know. just exploring my options. For $100 or so maybe worth it. But I'm not going to pay $300 for it.

Re: AOD to flathead

When I was looking at what trans to use I saw this adapter. It's a bit pricey.

Re: 1959 Coupe Header question

I did look around the forum before I posted my question. Didn't see that. I have noticed that my frame has a hole through part of the frame in which the exhaust pipe goes. That hole is on one side...

I have looked at Red's site. That ecklers was just an example. Red's prices are a little closer, within $20 of each other. But still shows a different part for convertible and non convertible. ...

1959 Coupe Header question

Title states 1959. I meant 1950. Sorry. This is a shoebox question.


What is the difference between a convertible car and the rest that make some headers only fit convertibles? What is in the...

Re: AOD to flathead

Thanks for all the input, guys. I'll be sure to get professional help before driving the car. The thing is in now. I'm trying to figure out what to use for a crossmember. I'll get the rear end done...

Thanks, guys. Much appreciated.


So this is going in a 50 Ford Coupe. Originally had the overdrive trans. I'll check the gear ratio and see what it is now. I already ground the block a little for...

Re: AOD to flathead

Thought about that. Tech line closes at 5 CST. But I think I figured out that the star washers fit the flexplate to crank Bolts. They are a little too big for the converter studs. I think I’m good...

AOD to flathead

I know this message board is not for “hot rods” or customs, this AOD is just about the only thing I’m upgrading on this car. Everything else will be pretty stock.

Anyway, my question is the kit...

Re: Oil slinger, crank snout, crank sleeve.

I’m googling. I found an old thread here that shows a references a Napa part. Buts $50. Is leaning towards old sleeve and 2 piece seal.

Re: Oil slinger, crank snout, crank sleeve.

This is my original one. Can I use a one piece seal or should I use the two piece?

Thanks.

Original Fomoco shocks

1950 Ford original shocks. Are they valuable to anybody. I was going to throw them away. Should I save them or sell them? I have two of them. Each one has a broken stud too.

Re: Oil slinger, crank snout, crank sleeve.

I was thinking that. But the sleeve would be in the way if I tried to take off the slinger with the key still there. So one would have to remove the key anyway.

Whatever the case, I have seen and...

Re: Oil slinger, crank snout, crank sleeve.

Ok. So i'm also looking at this DIYford.com site that pretty much shows a step-by-step putting together a flathead V8. It doesn't look like they have the slinger keyway lined up on anything either....

Re: Oil slinger, crank snout, crank sleeve.

Those too easy. And I have the stock one to use. And I’ll just use the standard seals on the end instead of the one piece.

But what about this “oil slinger?” it doesn’t fit on the key way at all....
