Re: 12 volt Regulator NOT Regulating

I still don't think that's a Ford regulator.
The ones I have used look like this:

Re: 1932 clutch issue

I have that setup on my roadster. You just need to make a longer pushrod. You could make the clevis longer by welding a nut onto the end. That may be simpler than extending the rod. Your choice.

Re: Side 5 Lug Bolts

We're talking about the register diameter of the studs here.
Ken, can the drums or hubs with the smaller holes be redrilled to take the larger studs?
It shouldn't be too difficult.

Re: Mounting ‘Tubman’ condenser on dome distributor

If you had the engine turning and you measured zero ohms that means the points are not making contact when they are closed.

Here's my advice:

Carefully remove the distributor.

Re: 39 Frame- Worn wishbone socket

Could you not just use a second lower part as a new upper seat? Bolts in and a couple of decent weld beads would make sure it doesn't move. Slightly longer bolts might be needed.

Can I just...

Re: 59A Flatty. A good candidate for rebuild? It's full of sludge!

No, lads, that was after a quick go around with a wire brush.

Re: 59A flathead questions.

Responding to my own post. The 99 motor I have DOES have the rope seal. So I am at a complete loss as to why my 59A which must be a later motor, has the slinger type.

With so much time gone by...

59A Flatty. A good candidate for rebuild? It's full of sludge!

Hello! Welcome to Mart's Garage. In this week's video I turn my attention to the first of my flathead stash. Lets delve into this old 59A flathead and see if it is suitable for rebuild.

Re: Tips for removing axle keys?

Tried grabbing it with Vise grips? Just tapping in inboard should get some movement. Or prying it outboard from the axle tube end.

Re: 12 volt Regulator NOT Regulating

Re: Notching cylinder for 4” merc crank in a 221

The motor above may have been running more than a 4" crank, and may have had non stock rods. Those reliefs may be more than is needed in this application.

Re: Notching cylinder for 4” merc crank in a 221

Could you wrap something like masking tape around the existing pistons to make them fit the bore and run through the clearance tests. You would only need one, and move it from bore to bore as they...

Re: Notching cylinder for 4” merc crank in a 221

I can't say whether you need notches or not, but can you not set the crank, a rod and piston in place and go through a dummy run looking for interference? If material removal is needed, it could be...

Re: Perch pin removal help

I had good success using a home made puller. It was based on a design posted by Andy. Heat is still required but they prefer to be pulled rather than pushed.

Balancing the flywheel on the 41 pickup at home.

Re: Mounting ‘Tubman’ condenser on dome distributor

Ignore the coil for now. lets see if the points are working.

Re: Mounting ‘Tubman’ condenser on dome distributor

Even with a rebuilt distributor, I would check to see if the points have "furred up" while standing. How long ago was it done?
You need to see if you have a spark.
Take one lead off and fit it to a...

Re: Uneven Head Dome Sizes

It sounds like they milled it at an angle.
Not good.
If the smallest still gives enough clearance, it could be re-milled to equal them up.
It might be a casting flaw, and the milling has made it...

Re: 34 pickup steering arm question

Re: Mounting ‘Tubman’ condenser on dome distributor

You might be able to file the hole in the clamp out to 5/16". The condenser does not have to be mounted directly at the distributor, so on that bolt might be an alternative.
