Re: T170 trans with stock 1932 ford K member ??

I don't believe it will fit - so some cutting will be necessary in the K-member. I know, we all wish there was a better option . . . . Arrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggh!

Re: 33 Rear Main Leak

Hey David - take a closer look on his first post - it appears to have the triangular vent on the bottom/front of the block.

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

They have a whole range of parts and services related to putting hydraulic brakes on a 32 - 34 Ford. Given the wide range of options and associated prices, the best thing is to contract Dennis Lacy...

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

You might want to checkout what Early Ford V8 Garage - supplies. I like Dennis Lacy's approach of the creation of a new clutch/brake pedal shaft (longer than stock), which he then hangs a pivot arm...

Re: Batter Tender

I use a battery tender on my 6V battery in my 32 Cab - has worked very well and I see no downside to it.

Re: 32 sedan patch panels any good ones made?

Hey Frank - you have it about right. A lot of his stuff in one-off custom . . . so unless he has the car/body in his mitts, he really can't make the panel or ensure that it fits.

Then, there is...

Re: oil pump

If it is a metered or drip feed oil filter (has an orifice), then it should exit back to the oil pan.

But, as Ronnie noted, has your block been modified for a 95% or full-flow oiling system? ...

Re: Engine teaser: Getting closer

Followed by . . . "Hey . . . did I just see my rear wheel PASS me on the road???" or "What is that funny scraping sound and why am I going over the cliff???".

Glad to hear you're putting late 28...

Re: Conversation with a WWII Veteran

Even back then, it was a part of the Navy that was quite selective - they had various skills and personality tests in order for them to "help you" select that area of service. My Dad told a story...

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

While I love these "dyno debates" - the challenge is that there is never one 100% correct answer. The only answer is "it depends" - as to the degree of applicability of a dyno (and type of dyno) as...

Re: Conversation with a WWII Veteran

Re: Conversation with a WWII Veteran

Thankyou Sir . . . much appreciate what you've done for this country! What part of the D-Day operation were you involved with and what beach did you come ashore on?

Re: 1933 Ford foot starter

Something to think about - depending on how "original looking" you want it to look like - is to add a modern Ford starter solenoid (12V, think 60's mustang) to handle the actual starter load and use...

Re: Engine teaser: Getting closer

That is a very early style intake - either a Weiand or an Edelbrock. The Weiand would most likely be Pre-WWII, the Edelbrock they made after the war. The primary purpose of the "high risers" was so...

Re: oil pump

Given that you've started/ran it multiple times . . . my guess is that the bearings will now be toast - any maybe the crank journals as well. You need to figure out the cause of the issue - can be...

Re: Help with a family issue

Re: Help with a family issue

Hey DavidG, as I've never owned a 32 pickup, where does the tank actually vent too? If the tank is under the seat (my assumption from reading this thread), then how/where do the venting vapors go?

Re: Engine teaser: Getting closer

One of the challenges today is finding the types of rings that I want to run - as I really like the 1.5, 1.5, 3.0mm ring sets. (Or other ring packages for 1.0, 1.2, 2.8mm, etc). We get much higher...
