Re: 59 Camshaft oiling

the extra slot in the OP's question, why?

No...you'll need to remove both worms and install the 37 worm on the 36 shaft.

Re: Grease fitting size for 1937 ford spindles

I know my 32 spindles are 1/8 pipe but my 39s are 1/4-28. So at some point in between Ford made the change

35 Fords have 1/4 28 NF grease nipples, so change must have occurred then

Re: sandblasting chrome rims
