Re: Mart's Crusty Flatty Part7. Bring on the Stunt Block.

Thanks to Tubman for dropping into the live chat. It was a bit of a tumbleweed affair. I won't be doing that again.

Re: 750-16 on 1932 Ford

I run 7.50:16s on the back of my 33. I also have a pair for my 32 sedan.

Lots of people run 'em on 32s.

Poor man's overdrive.

Mart.

Re: Replacing rings on 1 piston on 8ba

From those numbers +.125" over is my best guess. Didn't realise it was already well oversize.

Re: Jumbo solids 16 x 4.5" identify???? 5 0n 5.5

If that step on the back face is in the region of 3/16", they are probably aftermarket replacements for model A thru 35.

Re: Mart's Crusty Flatty Part7. Bring on the Stunt Block.

Thanks Jim.

The problem is, I do the job and film as I'm doing it. I can't do the job again if the footage isn't right.

I just have to put it together from what I've got. (Bit like everything...

The latest episode in the crusty flatty series is up on youtube..
One more step in (hopefully) the right direction to getting the recently acquired flathead running.

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

The one Glennpm is showing looks a lot like the one I made for my 32. I think the use of the box section is a good idea.

Re: Step x Step = Posting Pictures

Thanks for this. It isn't how I do it, I'm too old school, it's all done off my computer.

I was thinking of doing a video showing at least one way of doing it. Maybe one for the hamb too as...

Re: Specific questions re using a boring bar (Old school)

Thanks again for all the advice. I just did some test cuts and was able to get within half a thou of my target bore.

I'm very happy with that and will do a couple more and then try it for real on...

Thanks for listing out the steps you took to build a strong engine without going overboard.

It sounds awesome.

Re: Specific questions re using a boring bar (Old school)

Thanks Murre.

The tool is home made and uses a small left hand lathe tool modified to fit. It has changeable tips. It cuts pretty well without chattering.

My first test cut was bigger than...

Re: Specific questions re using a boring bar (Old school)

Thanks Murre. I've made some clamps, no need to worry about sending some, but thanks for thinking about it.

It's a vintage Buma machine, probably from the 1930s or 40s.

Understand re the lip...

Re: For those with machining experience. Sleeve fitting??

I just came in from the garage after running my boring bar for the first time. It seems to work quite well. Obviously I have no experience and nothing to compare it to but to me it seems pretty good....

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Excellent work and discussion. It's good for all of us to know what it takes. How much of it we choose to apply is up to us, but at least we know what to do.

Re: Mart's Crusty Flatty Teardown Pt6. Studs!. Get 'em out!

Re: Engine Made in the Stand

The studs should come out easily as it looks like they've just been started in the holes.

Re: 40-41 Pickup Inner Fender Panels

Do you have the big V shaped support? That is what the whole front clip rides on. The lower edges of the inner fenders only bolt on at one (or is it two) points. Nothing at the forward end, other...

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

I suppose the important point is, having a car with a reliable fuel gauge. That's why I put one in my truck recently.
