Re: Cast steel vs aluminum crab distributor

Pulled a cast iron one out of a truck at the local junk yard some years ago. Just had Bubba rebuild it this spring and I'm running it now. He really likes the cast units.

Re: 1940 ford pickup tailgate chain install

I don't have springs on my chains but I can see how they would make lowering the tailgate easier. Without them I have to put pressure on the gate so the hook doesn't slide out as I hook the opposite...

Re: high rpms breaking up

Mine will do that if I really stand on it and rev it up between shifts. I pretty sure mine is a float or fuel pressure issue causing it to lean out.

Re: What are the must haves for you're shop?

Milling machine is really handy. I use mine more than my lathe. You will find the blast cabinet is really great to have. Makes old rusty parts look like new.

Re: 38 Ford windshield

As I remember the shaft is splined and the handle just slides on to the crank. The clip holds the handle in the dash. So technically the dash is what holds the handle on to the crank shaft.

Re: Adding an electric fuel pump

I pulled a fuel shut off switch out of a Taurus and installed it behind the drivers side kick panel. Thankfully I haven't had the chance to actually use it.
