Re: What is this?

My vote is it is a Free-Wheeling Transmission. Many car manufacturers (Studebaker, Buick, et/al) equipped new vehicles with this device.

Re: Valve seats with pits

No not really. Carbon will begin to collect and before you know it, you will have a valve not seating which ultimately burns the seat & the valve. You did not mention whether the pitted ones are...

Re: Shift Lever Drawing

They really are not radius-ed, but it actually has a 45 machined chamfer, -and yes it is correct.

And Yes, that is my drawing of the Fork.

Re: Can rods be checked for straightness without special equipment?

Brendan, I guess the true answer to this is what do you call 'special equipment'?

I guess one way is if you have a good lathe and a knee mill, you can machine a mandrel for the big end of the...

Re: Shift Lever Drawing

Not a misprint. The size of the ball is not machined to 0.500" or ".

I think where some people started that misinformation (-besides reading it in Fordbarn and then telling it to others. :D) is...

Re: 1st gear is slightly jammed

There are several things that can be causing this in which pictures won't tell you. I have a fixture (-pictured below) that checks the fork area to ensure that it is not bent. Probably better than...

Re: Shift Lever Drawing

You do not need to have them write a program on this. There is 0.004" tolerance on the shift forks, and the same on the shift lever. One word of caution though, the ball on the end is NOT "...

Re: Earthquake

Hey thanks but we're all good! It was felt according to our neighbors but no damage to our home or shop. Pennie & I were actually on our way to church during the 'quake so we really didn't know...

Re: Lightened Flywheel

I'm pretty confident that all Mr. Kelley's balancer did was add weight to the center of the flywheel. The flywheel mass (-of any weight) cancels any affect of the flywheel mounted balancer when they...

Re: Electronic ignition advise

I get totally what you all are saying.

Re: How do I

To begin with, Teflon tape (-or any type tape) is a 'no-no' in this area on fittings.

Second, the reproduction fuel line must be re-shaped to match the original line. I have attached a photo...

Re: Lightened Flywheel

I did not search for it, and was only working off of memory that you had asked something about it. The link I posted is the one I started several years ago.

Re: Stubborn Tight 2-Piece Valve Guide Won't Come Out

When someone is paying us to disassemble an engine for rebuild, wasting time on removing a stubborn guide is not prudent. Our method is to raise the valve until the mushroomed end is against the...

Re: Electronic ignition advise

The logic behind this is indeed great. Yes, electronic ignition systems are everywhere. So with that said, everyone always seems to use the word "should" stating that "if" you make sure you have...

Re: Electronic ignition advise

'Should' is the operative word here. Perfect world scenarios often counter 'real world situations'.

Re: Need to purchase an outside rear view mirror for a 29 Tudor

If they do, you can remove the mirror from the housing and pour a small amount of lead shot in the the mirror housing and then re-install the mirror glass. This is done on HCCA era cars where...

Can you begin by telling if it is a one-piece, -or a two-piece pulley? Many of the two-piece were manufactured where they were too short to allow the crank ratchet nut to adequately tighten it. ...
