Helpful shock absorber technical data.

Hello. I needed some shocks for my 32 sedan project. 5/8 eye top and bottom. I got a link to the Gabriel catalog from a helpful post on Fordbarn and got it into Excel via Word. I was then able to...

Re: Drag Link Question

^^ It's interesting that that drag link, while adjustable, is not infinitely adjustable. It can only be adjusted to the nearest thread pitch, which is, admittedly, perfectly adequate in that...

Re: Name that Block

If the v8-60s have straight up and down exhaust bolts they are v8-60s.

Or put it another way, they are not our "normal" v8 type of any configuration.

Edit: I just googled v8-60 and they look...

Re: how tell the difference between 39-41 and 42-48

If you're looking at shoes, the earlier type have round holes. The later type have a hole with two flats.
The shoes sit on pivot washers the early type are round on the outside with a sort of round...

Re: Fuel line connectors- AN/JIC to IFF Questions

Yeah, you're trying to reinvent the wheel. Use a ford nut and ferrule same as you use going into the carb.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Looks great, Mike. Really spotless.

Can i just ask people in general that if they ever look at my stuff, not to do it immediately after looking at Mike's stuff.

Thanks.

Mart's 32 Sedan Pt7: Adapting Juice brakes to Early Spindles.

Hello! Welcome to another video from Mart's garage. This week I decide I was not happy with the kit I bought to adapt the later hydraulic brakes to the 32 spindles. I modify the backplates and the...

Re: 1939 Ford flathead 59AB help

This is not a definitive statement, but my belief is that it is for a drain from the rear bearing, but Ford found out it wasn't necessary so deleted it from the build.

Hopefully someone will...

Re: Shocks are bottomed out

If you scan the catalog above and then find your potential candidates you can then look the numbers up at Rockauto and find the application. It works for some, at least.

Re: Flathead Ford V8 Being Built at Rouge Ford Plant

I like how the guy is operating the bucket crane from a cab just above the bucket. Never saw that before.

Just realised I have to go out. I'll watch it later.

Re: Rear Block Plugs 59a

1/4 NPT. typically one vertical and one horizontal. The oil pressure sender should go in one and sometimes a bypass oil filter is plumbed into the other. Sometimes there is a third plug further...

Storing an engine upside down.

I just bought an old 59 motor. The top end was really rough. The heads were hard to get off and the pistons are all seized. I expected the worst when pulling the pan. Imagine my surprise when I found...

Re: New video! Mart tidies workbench. Oh yeah, Plus some 32 stuff.

Not falling over them at every autojumble and only rarely pop up on UK ebay. So I'd say not too easy. If you're serious and are prepared for a big postal bill and potentially high cost of the parts I...

Re: Scraping noise when turning

Torque is typical taper roller setup. Just snug. Someone will post the proper procedure, but they shouldn't be "torqued" as such. I think you can apply a torque to seat new bearings, but after a...

Re: New video! Mart tidies workbench. Oh yeah, Plus some 32 stuff.

The thing about putting your work on video is you can see where you are letting yourself down. Hence tidying the bench. It looked disgraceful in the last video and I was ashamed to show it.

Re: '32 woodie - holes in cowl

Re: A few questions on a 8BA

I wouldn't try and turn it. Not with all the valves and lifters like that.
Pull the cam gear and see if the pistons want to move. Loosen the rod bearings so there is free play and see if you can...

Re: A few questions on a 8BA

Have a good look all round the pan rail surface, the face, inside and outside. You're looking for cracks.
The valves should be easier than the old type because you can use a conventional valve...

Re: New to the Flathead game and need advice

255 55 18 is approximately a 29" combo. That should be roughly equivalent to 6.50:16.

The 3.54 gears are a great swap into these old trucks, that's what I have in my 41.
