Re: Fuel pump

The cam lobe the rod rides on may be worn if the rod itself is the correct length. I have seen a KRW tool that measures the length of travel of the rod. A dial indicator could do the same thing.

Re: Maiden voyage accomplished!

V8coopman, I was helped enormously by the fact that this is the ONLY car I have ever had that needed ZERO body work. I took it down to bare metal and there was NO rust or dents to deal with. ...

Re: 39-48 steering worm gear.

I would think a NOS Ford one would be worth at least $100. I have sold NOS shafts for that which were odd lengths and people pressed the gear off and replaced their own worn out one.

Re: HF 2 ton alum. jack, good,bad,indifferent ?

I think the one I have is 2 1/2 tons but I have had it several years and it has not given me any trouble. I really like how light it is. I think I paid 159 or something like that.

Re: 32 Pa. LicenPlates now legal on my 32 now

PA must have changed their law to allow that. When I used to come back there to Hershey, the PA plates were 5 bucks because the state wouldn't let you use them. Great to hear the loosened up! ...

Re: 32 Ford Cowl Vent

Was the mechanism hooked up while it was bolted down? IF not maybe because of an early vs late vent not hooking up to the hinge spot? Just a wild guess. Probably something bent if the original...

Re: Need encouragement head replacement

Hey, the chances are the heads are OK, just saying to check them because errors do happen. I know of several people with them that are fine. I really like how they look.

Re: Exact Engine Year

Agree with JSeery, hard to tell about the pan rail if it has bulges or not but the intake area does look like the ones people call "raised" 41. Better pictures from the OP would be a big help.
