Re: Removing bonded brake linings.

I just did this. The torch is definitely your friend. Heat the shoe first and then heat the lining itself. Some came right off, but others were extremely stubborn. Heat, scrape, reheat, scrape...

Re: Seized 59AB Engine - Solutions

As most have said, you may not be able to save much here. However - that appears to be a 59Y block. Per Rumbleseat's files this was usually industrial, factory relieved, and possibly harder/tougher...

Re: '32 front wheel bearing spacer

The spacer had been spinning on the spindle and machining itself down. Hence the ever increasing looseness in the wheel. Luckily there doesn't appear to be any damage to the spindle. This appears...

'32 front wheel bearing spacer

Thought I'd share my recent experience with wheel bearing spacers. My '32 roadster has original spindles with '40 hubs/drums. It has the requisite spacer on the spindle for the inner bearing. ...

Re: 34 ford front spring

I used this front spring in my '32 roadster. Traditional, no sliders. Disassemble, use SlipPlate (graphite paint) between the leaves, then paint. Works great. I'm not sure if he's still selling...

Re: stromberg 97

In the FWIW category, Carter also sold a replacement for both the 97 and the 94. Here's a NOS version of it. Instruction sheet states for 1934-1955 Ford V8. It also mentions "vacuum spark line".

Re: stromberg 97

Hope these photos can be read. Essentially the instruction sheet states "attach vacuum spark line (7)". Number 7 is the port on the carb. The instructions also have statements specifically calling...

Re: stromberg 97

I'll try to get a better/closeup photo of the instructions tomorrow. It would be interesting to see the internal differences between this carb and a "normal" 97.

Here's a NOS version of the rare/elusive Stromberg 97 1-1. The box is a bit tattered, but all the goodies are there. Note this is a Stromberg (Bendix) part number 380272 intended for 49-53 Ford...

Re: Speedo head lubrication

I believe to lube it properly you need to pull that small brass cup in your second photo. That allows lube to get to the actual shaft and bushing. I'm doing the same on a '32 speedo, but have not...

Re: Plug Wire Tubes

Here's a photo of an original '44 truck with a 29A engine. Somewhat tough to see, but it has the braided/asphalt covering over the crossover spark plug wire.

Re: '35/36 Sedan Delivery interior photos needed

Those dealer album photos are great! That's a huge help.

The car I'm looking at appears to be a standard with a painted windshield frame and single tail/brake light.

Re: valve seat cutters

Thanks Gary. We do have the speed reducer head. I've also used the Winona to cut valve pockets in the flathead heads. Have to be careful with that though - if the cutter chatters the table can...

Re: 32 - 34 gas caps

I'll do a search for the NOS leather gaskets and have also emailed Nick for his fix. Nothing worse than a leaking gas cap on new paint.

I appreciate all the responses so far.

Re: Is there a good chemical to quiet lifter in my '51 Lincoln flathead

I had a noisy lifter in a 337 a few years back. No amount of rislone/atf/etc would quiet it. Found a guy selling new hydraulic lifters for the 337 on ebay. I cheaped out and bought two. Installed...
