Re: Built a louver press

That's all very cool. All I know about louvers is that a guy in high school had 4 rows punched in the hood of his '50 Ford. It looked good, but from then on he had to contend with rusty spark plugs.:D

Re: NO Bubba? then who

I agree with the above. It's really rude to ask a guy who has problems finding time to run his business for a freeby.

Re: What Electric Pump do you recommend?

It sounds like a good idea to me (I could never really get my mind around "flow through" electric pomps). However, why not put the filter between the tank and the first tee and get filtration on both...

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Just remember, the "dimple" on the pulley is at 2 degrees BTDC.

Re: cant figure out fire to dizzy

Can you post a picture of the burgundy condenser? I am having trouble determining what you are referring to.

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Is that an advance timing light? I have had two of them, and they both went bad shortly after using them. I would follow "JWL"'s advice.

Re: Problem with front axle made of a mixture of parts.

Speedway has the dropped tie rod ends. They say they are for '48-'60 Ford truck, but they will fit '37-'48 spindles.

Re: 1936 pickup changing motor to a mercury motor

As to any increase in performance, the engine originally in the vehicle was rated from the factory at 85 HP. If you were to install a '52-'53 Mercury engine (rated from the factory at 125 HP) you...

Re: Whizzernick's Wicked Lift?

The first thing I thought when I opened the original was "Please, don't drop it!".:eek:

Re: Repairing frame rust

I agree with the above as well. I live 20 miles north of Brainerd, MN (not one of the larger metropolitan areas in the country), and have found that there is a local company, "American Steel Supply",...

Re: Barrett Jackson

How about some detail pictures of the rear fenders (especially the rear tips) or the cowl sides? It looks like this is a "put-together" car, so that may not even be definitive. I am starting to see...

Re: crab distributor

I'd leave 'em alone; you stand a good chance of getting them out of alinement trying to bend that out of them. There's probably 90% contact. So they go 18,000 miles instead of 20,000.

Re: Repairing frame rust

There was an earlier thread about replacement frame sections from Chassis Engineering. I would go that route. There is also another thread saying "Precision Coach Works" is also still in business,...

Re: crab distributor

It don't look the best, but it will probably run fine. If it does, leave it alone; any replacement points will probably be worse.

Re: Barrett Jackson

I'm with Mr. Coopman. Also, I don't think it's a typo because they were pretty deliberate pointing the differences out. I am also with you, for the right price, I would be interested as well,...

Re: Standard or Deluxe Model?

I will add that you will only see that "Blue Box" when you are on the main page; it does not appear when you are viewing a thread. (It's in the same location that "POST REPLY" is on this page.)

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

Wouldn't you try to "port match" the water passages in the early block to match the late gaskets and heads where possible?

Re: Barrett Jackson

Did you notice that everywhere in the listing it refers t it as a "1936 Ford" and at the very end of the listing it says "Titled as a 1935 Ford". There may be something seriously fishy going on here...

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

That tells me all I need to know. I wasn't sure when I first saw this thread, but it looks like a pretty good idea after seeing this.

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

Anybody ever done this? Do the upper hoses line up? I put an 8BA into a '36 once but used a walker radiator designed for this particular swap.

Re: exchange 8ba cyl heads with 59ab

Remember, there is a difference in hose size between 8BA heads and earlier engines. (Unless you purchase the expensive aftermarket thermostat housings.)
