Re: 3 spd OD 12v solenoid

We don’t sell the solenoids. I’ve been referring people to Fifth Avenue. However, I’m trying to get hold of Randy at Fifth Avenue and having trouble reaching him. Anyone know him locally and able to...

Re: 33-34 Clutch Release Arm Question

Ahhh....I know better than to trust the later versions for 100% accuracy. They do occasionally add to the application list. I already knew about the two versions for 1933-34 but the photo image we...

Re: 33-34 Clutch Release Arm Question

According to the 1949 printed version of the 28-48 Green Bible, the 40-7511-A arm was listed as the part used for the 1933-34 passenger car with the V-8 engine. The 40-7511-B arm was listed for the...

Re: 54 ford rear yoke

I missed the “rear end” part of his request, so I was mistaken in suggesting we could have the part. We don’t have the rear driveshaft yoke in any case.

Re: 54 ford rear yoke

Assuming it’s for a standard shift car, we have some of them in our NOS parts. They don’t include the universal joint of course, but we also stock those. Part number is B5A-4841 for the slip yoke.

Re: BorgWarner Overdrive Questions

The GL-4 gear oil (non-synthetic) in a 90 wt is what we’ve always recommended for the Borg Warner overdrives. If you are filling up the transmission with it in the car, you’ll have to use the filler...

Re: 91A-8600 Radiator fan

That’s how I measure them......in effect, the full length of the actual hub itself.

Re: 91A-8600 Radiator fan

Please post the hub lengths of the two fans so that we can note the difference for future reference. Thanks

Re: Starter Drive

The one on our website is definitely USA made. We install them on our new starters and sell them separately.

Re: Media Blasting 40 Body

No advice to give on the tar coating but a little to offer on the blasting of your sheet metal: find someone who can soda blast or use the dry ice blast method. If the operator uses the sand blast...

Re: Early Ford Transmission in Chrome

I was concerned about the bearing bores and the bolt hole threads, but all was good. It didn’t appear that the plating was in the bearing bores, and, in fact, the bearing fit was good. So, we had no...

Early Ford Transmission in Chrome

A customer in Texas sent us these transmission gearbox castings from a 1951 pickup truck, and asked us to build the rest of the unit. Since he's planning on putting the unit into a hot rod, he wanted...

Re: Info on this truck transmission

If the cluster gear and the sliding gears are good (little to no wear on the teeth and no rust pitting) I’d be interested in them. You’d have to take it apart to verify this so that would be up to...

Re: Cam Gear Noise

Also you may have to check the length of the four bolts that secure the gear to the camshaft, making sure one or all four don’t stick out the back side too much. The front block plug is also in this...

Definitely a 49-50 and early 51 Mercury standard 3 speed transmission.

Re: 1954 Ford 3-Speed OD Trans. Fits What Other Years?

The 1952-54 Ford passenger car transmissions (standard and overdrive) were identical. Internally, most of the internal gears are also used in the 1951 models. Most of the gears changed for the 1955...

Re: Cluster Gear Identification

Appears to be the Canadian version of the regular 28-24-18-14 cluster gear, similar to the 8M-7113 gear. The two prongs on the small end use a thrust washer similar to the 8M-7129 with the bowtie...
