Re: 1932 Ford Frame - "false shaped panel"

Ask your friend to put his hand up the back of the frame rail and feel if it is smooth or has the distinctive shape of the stock reveal. The lower curved edge is much sharper on the actual chassis...

Re: 41 mercury engine question

There are heads that just have an A on them. They are compatible with the earlier motors with the valves closer to the cylinders. If I remember correctly they have a relatively small combustion...

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

No good, Mike. The nut needs to be extremely tight. and everything still needs to be free to turn.

You need to tighten it as much as you can and still be able to turn it. You can then pull it...

Re: 33 in the hills

Very impressive. Actually probably the types of roads that a lot of those cars used to cover regularly in their youth.

Re: Cubic inch question

Yeah. I'll walk you through it.

bore * bore * pi /4 *stroke*no of cylinders

6*6 = 36
36* 3.1416 = 113.0976

113.0976/4 = 28.2744

28.2744 *12 =

Re: Cubic inch question

"Just don't ask me to offset grind your merc crank to 4 1/8"

If you can do that with a router and string I'd like to see it.

Re: 1940 Ford clutch link

I believe the pedals are like a LHD 40. Captive shaft in the bracket, both pedals bushed and rotating on the shaft. There's no need for any inside/outside trickery, as the clutch pedal automatically...

Re: What kind of jack do you carry

I have an inexpensive scissor jack. You should be able to get the jack under the axle and you only need to lift the tire 1/2" off the ground. If the vehicle is not severely lowered you should be able...

Re: 52 f1

A piece of brake lining may have come dislodged. Not likely if the brakes are relatively new.

A good inspection of all the brake assemblies is called for.

If you go for a ride on quiet roads...

Early Ford Seal swap. Home made bearing tool. Flatty port cleanup. Radius rod mods.

Project continuation aplenty. I progress the 32 sedan build by swapping out the torque tube seal which included making a home made tool to pull and replace the bearing sleeve. The torque tube was...

Re: Cubic inch question

Understanding how the .7854 was arrived at and knowing how it is calculated from first principles is the most important thing.

Re: 1940 Ford clutch link

The pedals are not a reverse of the 39 setup, because the orientation of the clutch and brake pedals are the same regardless of hand of drive.

The RHD clutch pedal handily falls right next to the...

Re: question and maybe a picture

The French blocks have the shape in the casting for the engine steady rods but they will need to be drilled out. Not too bad a job, I drilled the ones in Old Rusty.

Re: question and maybe a picture

Harty. Hello.

If you are using the 59A type belt placement and a crab or helmet distributor, you need replacement 59A type pumps. You need replacement type because the original type need an oil...

Re: head stud removal

I only tried the gas axe method once and made a right mess. I'm not saying the method is no good, as Kiwi is able to make it work successfully. It just didn't work when I tried it.
I prefer to try...

Re: 1940 Ford clutch link

It's hard to tell from the pic, but does that clutch linkage go straight to the gearbox (39 style) or does it have a relay lever as intro'd on the LHD 40 Fords?

Re: The fun begins

What the gearbox did have in 1939 was improved synchros. Still only on second and top, but a better shift action. My understanding is that deluxe jobs got the better synchros. In my mind I feel they...

Re: Cubic inch question

You square it because you want the area of the cylinder.

Area of a circle is Pi r squared.

Because we know the bore rather than the radius, we have to use the alternative formula that uses the...

Re: Rebuilt Flathead Problems.

No. The zip tie stops it getting to the top. You then wind the motor in the other direction until the piston goes all the way down, and back up again and comes to rest against the zip tie.

I did a...

Re: Need help-New to flatheads

Other than the booger welding, the mount appears to be a copy of the Hot Rod Works setup. If the torque arm has been made to the same standard as the HRW one, and the welding could be brought up to...
