Re: How Close to (Over)Square In V-8 Bore/Stroke?

To get a Ford flathead to "square" requires the crank shaft to be "de-stroked" by ore than 1/4". I cannot think if a more futile (not to mention expensive) undertaking.

Re: V-8 Times

Isn't there a significant shipping surcharge for foreign subscriptions? Better service=higher charges.

Re: Walker Radiator

"Brassworks", or maybe an original Ford product (if you can find a decent radiator shop close enough). It depends how deep your pockets are.

Re: Gosfast Gary from NY?

This the one thing I don't like about these forums; leaning bad things about good people.

Gary has done me a few favors, which I am grateful for, and I hope everything turns out good for him.

Re: Sound deadning

I remember seeing a bunch of threads on the "H.A.M.B." on this subject. As I remember, there are a number of products sold at "Home Stores" that are much cheaper and actually work better.

Re: Runs great until it heats up

That's the most likely suspect, but it might also be the condenser. They can fail when hot as well.

Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

I hate to be the one to say this, but if the problem persists after you have everything back to normal (hint, hint - replace the restrictors with proper thermostats), the problem may be a failed head...

Re: 32 spring bushings

I would try "barnfind08" on this forum as suggested in post #6. He has a company called "Southside Obsolete" that has a lot of NOS parts.

Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

If Henry Ford and his engineers had figured that "Washers" worked as well (or nearly as well) as thermostats in these cars, the old cheapskate would have used them.:rolleyes:

Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

It sounds like you made two changes at the same time ("reconditioned" the radiator and installed restrictors). Unfortunately, when you do that, you don't really know what solved the problem (if it is...

Re: ultimate flathead

I have known guys like this. I was trying to buy a 392 Hemi from a guy once. After listening to his BS for about 15 minutes ("the driveshaft was twisted like a barber pole"), I gave up and went home.

Re: Canadian 1946-1948 Mercury 114

That would be OK if they lost they wheels and surfboards. I am not a fan of ostentation.

Re: ultimate flathead

I guess the old theory about headers not helping performance on a flathead is true. This thing appears to have stock exhaust manifolds.

Getting that kind of RPM's is easy; just use a tachometer for a 4 cylinder engine.:D

Re: ultimate flathead

With that kind of numbers, whether it was or wasn't a 239 is irrelevant.

Re: How To Remove Cosmoline

After seeing all of this, I guess I was lucky that nobody was able to deliver on the "Harley 45's packed in Cosmoline" they talked about when I was in high school.

Re: Toilet paper oil filter adapter

Read my post #12 again. My dad sold and used these for several years without such an occurrence or any complaints.

Put a roll of toilet paper in your OEM housing at your own peril.

Re: The Right Stuff

Would this be a good product to use on head bolts/studs?
