Re: Electric fan over a belted fan

How noisy is that compared to a stock 36 fan? I'd like to reduce the highway speed fan noise.

Re: TIG welder recomendations

Adding - I have a Lincoln 175 Squarewave in my personal shop, it's perfect for most car hobby stuff, and very simple to set up. I think the equivalent new machine is a Squarewave 200

+1 on an old transformer machine if you can find one. My big machine is a Lincoln TIG 300/300 I bought new in 1977, it's still the best for very small welds, goes down to 2A, I welded a ball onto a...

Re: 59A 221 Cu in engine

What crankshafts and main bores did they have? Ford also made thick main bearings with 59a ODs and small IDS to put the early crank in a late block. Wondering if those were used in these motors.

Re: Looking for a place in NJ that does vibratory tumbling

Re: Amazing new stud extractor

What does the inside look like? Jaws like a drill chuck? Does it mark the threads, are the threads reuseable afterward?

Re: What to look for on a preliminary block inspection?

I've been through 6 junk engines trying to find 1 good block, and I've developed a new strategy because of that. Next one I'm going to leave the heads on a pressure test it by capping the water inlet...

Re: Tireshop for '37 Ford wheels

For 25 years or more new tire machines have been built to hold the rim by the OD of the rear side, to accommodate newer styled wheels without damage. If the shops you contacted don't have them, they...

Re: Big Boys Heads

I'm having a hard time seeing the shape of the chamber directly above the piston. It sort of looks domed, but not as domed as a stock chamber. Does anyone else see that, or does it look flat to you?

Re: head stud removal

I just did battle with the studs on a 36 LB block. The studs were crusty from sitting with the heads off and being roughly handled so I didn't care about saving them. I'm gunshy about heating any...
