Re: F2 and F250 backing plates

Re: PCV VALVE SYSTEM for 8BA with Early Intake Manifold

You MAY (or may not) have to trim that baffle in the Mercury pan to clear the Ford pick-up tube. You also should beware of the possible difference in proximity of the Ford pick-up with the bottom of...

Hey Sid.....I've been down the F-250/Buick drum path, WITH A TWIST! More on that in a minute. You stated that you "just want Bendix-type brakes". The SIMPLEST, and likely most-economical way to do...

Re: PCV VALVE SYSTEM for 8BA with Early Intake Manifold

It's the pump 'PICK-UP' and the attached, round baffle that are the oddballs. These pics show how the round baffle fits snugly into the round hole in the MERCURY pan baffle. The pumps are...

Re: Mallory sbc to 8BA 4 lobe cam issues

In '35 and '36, Ford painted these trucks this way at the factories to be used as dealer 'Demonstrators'......documented stuff! Two different examples here. DD

Re: '32 woodie - holes in cowl

I don't believe I've ever seen an antenna like that on a car anywhere near that early, although that is probably what those holes were for. I remember seeing those on late '40s and some earlier '50s...
