Re: Getting on Fordbarn

I had some earlier versions of win10 that I didn't like at all. But the current ones I am running I have configured so they are the same as older windows, like 8 or exp, so happy with it. Not a fan...

Re: AOD to flathead

Be sure the TV is set as best you can before driving it to the shop to set it up. A bad TV adjustment can destroy an AOD in short order.

Re: Hi Temp damage

I would think you would have to be talking very high temps to be an issue.

Re: New Clutch Slipping

I would assume that if it is slipping at higher rpms that the pressure plate is not clamping the disk with enough pressure for it to hold. If so you would need to figure out why, clutch disk...

Re: Would You Use it?

No idea who the builder is, but couldn't disagree more. Why do you think they make the holes the size they do? Read flatheadmurre post, they are designed that way for a reason! If you look at the...

Re: 34 pickup oil question and ignition resistor

If it is the original 34 wiring, then this. Basically the same except the main power comes from the floor starter switch.

Re: 34 pickup oil question and ignition resistor

The resistor question depends on the coil you have. If it is the original style coil that is mounted to the top of the distributor then it needs the resistor under the dash. If you need one your...

Re: My little red Ford Pickup

On 33/34 I use the original pedals with a bell-crank to the master cylinder.

Re: Transmission lineage

Re: Testing generators

The RPM would be anything above a fast idle. Pick a number, say 1500 RPM. The wiring diagram would be the same as the vehicle wiring. But early generators work with a cutout and the later with a...

Re: ***Need help on BRAKES - 53 Merc Monterey***

The Rock Auto stuff I have ordered was very low priced and old stock USA parts. I have always been happy with their service.

Re: 1936 Doors and Fenders

Guessing it could be similar to a 33-34 5w. The 4dr doors will not fit directly, but can be modified to fit.

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

Are you sure what the internals are? Based on the photo posted of the top of the block, it doesn't seem to match the billing sheet posted. You are going to have to check to see what you have. Or,...

Re: Temp gage acting stange

Maybe I'm just being picky here, but K-S gauges are not resistance gauges/senders, they work off of pulsing the current.

Re: 32-48 Axle housings

Subtract out the width of the center section and divide by 2. Now you just need the width of the center section, which I would have to measure.

Re: 36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

An obstruction over a very short distance has little affect on system flow. You have two thermostats on a flathead vs one on most large OHV engines, they are capable of maintaining proper flow. The...

Re: Almost a fire in the 36

I would go with Terry's suggestion, best to trouble shoot the problem first with a cutout you can sacrifice.

Re: 36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Very Tangled posted it, the thermostats help bring the engine up to operating temperature quicker and maintain a minimum temperature. On later flatheads something around 185 degrees is a good target...
