Re: Fuse Block & Coil Resistor for 38 Ford

LOL, Ford didn't start using them until 1940. But they would work on earlier years, just only correct for 40.

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Yes, I am well aware that there are no original timing marks, but you say you are checking the timing, so must be checking them against some added mark. The question was, was the added mark checked...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Did you double check the TDC mark on the pulley when you had the engine apart?

Re: Wire splicing

You can purchase wire by the foot from RI wiring. Should be able to find a color/tracer pattern to match what you currently have.

There is a 10 ft minimum per wire...

Re: Changing stock '34 pitman arm -source?

I have modified the splines in the F1 steering arm with a 3-sided file. It doesn't take too long, but it does take a lot of trial and error fitting. The splines are on a bit of a tapper so you need...

Re: 33 5w coupe rear window drain tube.

There is a hole to drain it. No more a problem than dumping the trunk gutter onto the rear section of the floor. Or windows draining into the bottom of the doors.

Re: aviation gas

Octane rating is way more than a normal street flathead. A high CR OHV engine might benefit. Non-ethoanol fuel should be available most everywhere. Marine usage, farm usage, etc.

Re: 33 Front Tube Shocks

If you are wanting to make up something yourself, the F1 brackets work well for the upper mount.

Re: New Rebuild Overheating

If it is overheating in 2 or 3 minutes that does sound like a serious issue! I feel your pain. But something that severe should be something that can be determined. I vote for pulling the...

Re: New Rebuild Overheating

I guess a question would be, why are you idling the engine in the garage, that is just a recipe for over heating. Especially on a new rebuild. If it were mine, I would determine if it is actually...

Re: New Rebuild Overheating

Tanking a block does not insure it is cleaned out inside the water jackets. However, your cooling issue seems like a bigger issue than that. Are you sure the radiator has a large enough capacity...

Re: new engine start-up problems

I would think the wet plugs would be a clue. They will not fire if wet.

Re: new engine start-up problems

Then guess it's not a 12v coil is it. :) That's why I ask the question, you really need to know what is needed before trying to use it. IMO it is always better to use a coil ballast resistor...

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

Mike, the longer shoe (more brake liner material) goes toward the front on Lockheed brakes.
