Re: 1937 Ford Truck

Model51,
The images are to small for me to read and blur out, when enlarged. Can you post them in a larger format? I'd really like to have that info. Or could you send them to my Email?

Re: Ford Willow Run documentary

A very good friend of mine was a gunner on a B24. He liked to tell a story about how, on the way back from a mission, that he would open up the 50 BMG, until it got so hot, that it would chain fire,...

Re: '37 Bellhousing?

Zeke, very interesting. If the first letter is a I, it would make it Sept '37. I also note the oil port is different than mine.

Re: '37 Bellhousing?

Thanks, Jerry.
I thought that there might be some "common knowledge" type thing but, it may not be lost to history, as the Ford Museum, still has drawings of most things, up to about '57 so, they...

Re: '37 Bellhousing?

Well yes, I knew that, at least a '37 vintage (from earlier postings on here), specially after I pulled the heads and it having domed pistons.

What I was most interested in, was the lettering. The...

Re: Still vibrating but better

Take the tires off and run it on good, jack stands and see if it's still vibrating.

If it still vibrates, check out the trans and rear end, with a stethoscope.

That's me on the left, my Gfather in front of me, we were at his farm in the Ozarks of AR. I was about 5 then (1949/50) so, I really don't remember but, my guess would be a chicken hawk.

My dad...

Re: Cleaning Parts with a Rock Tumbler

I just did the same thing, with a set of OHV race springs and a HF rock tumbler (stole it from my wife). The springs were dry, w/o any oil or grease, just rust.

I used silica sand, dry. It only...

Re: I Don't Like Palnuts

Yes, i did one or two, 223's also.

On the 292's, the issue was that the oil passage would plug up, that went to the rocker arms (maybe the 223's too?). I think the main cause of that was...

Re: I Don't Like Palnuts

I was never a fan of the 239/312 Y block. My dad bought a '54 Ranchwagon, in '57 and had to replace the engine within a year. He put a '55, 272 in it and we never had any trouble after that. But,...

Re: I Don't Like Palnuts

No offense, Jerry :) But, I am a fan of them in the rear view mirror ;)

Flathead, don't forget this years EMC, a 390 FE was first and a 289 second. I'm sure a flathead could win it some day, too...

Re: I Don't Like Palnuts

I guess that tells 2 things about me.

1. I'm NOT a Chev guy

2. My last year as a auto mechanic was 1970 and in 1969, I replaced the block of my best friends 67 Camaro, 350 (split cyl wall) and...

Re: I Don't Like Palnuts

Engine manufacturers haven't used a lock on rod nuts, since the 60's.

I would be very comfortable using new grade 8 nuts on the rods, torque to spec.

Re: 9 inch axle removal

Remove the 4 bolts on the retainer plate, then use a slide hammer to pull the axle.

Sometimes, they'll pop right out and sometimes not. Bigger is better (slide hammer) in that case.

Re: 1949 Ford 8n Tractor

For wheels (rims and centers) and wheel weights, I used a spay paint color that matches, pretty well. The color is pewter.
