Re: Tech: Cheap and easy pcv on your 49-53 ford flathead v8

If it were a "good engine" it would not have any "blow by gasses" to be concerned with.

The valve does not regulate the flow, its the vacuum created in the intake manifold that controls the position of the valve.

Re: 34 crankshaft nut wrench size

Don't need any calipers, it can be done with some paper board and a pair of scissors, cut to fit nut and measure. (it's called ingenuity)

Re: Hoodbadge ID

Seem to recall seeing them many years ago somewhere and as I recall they were one of the many items that were available to personalize your vehicle.
If you like them, use them.

Re: Welding a bumper

The bumpers are not spring steel but are malleable.
Any heating and quenching will induce an unwanted embrittlement and cause shrinking.

Re: Center main blowout

Doubtful, as any 8BA I have seen has the holes tapped right thru (no bottom) and the threads don't start until appox. 3/8" below the surface.

Re: Flathead Adjustable Lifter question

I don't get it. If they are truly 11mm hex then that is only .004" smaller than 7/16". And have never had the need for an extra long wrench to accomplish the same thing.

Otherwise the one you suggest has all the desired attributes.

You are using 1/4" steel lines to mount the filter to the "firewall"?
Is that normal for "firewall" mounting ?

Re: 266 versus 276 CI?

Isn't it amazing that some of todays vehicles with 1/2 the displacement of a flathead V8 will, in most cases, out perform and probably blow the doors off most flathead V8 Fords. :)
