Re: FORD vs FERRARI

I apologize for the long copy/paste, but I thought I should post this.

Re: FORD vs FERRARI

I just saw it in Imax, and yes it was awesome. Matt Damon didn't make you think of Shelby but he played the part well. The anachronisms were fewer than I expected, only real sharp car guys will pick...

Re: NJ race of gentlemen 2019

Did you get into the pits? Last year I waited in line to buy a pit pass, then they closed the pits and didn't allow me to enter.

Re: Cutting domes in 21 stud aluminum heads?

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

I was wrong. My Fenton is very different - see pics.


Anyone have experience with this one How do they work? Can you run progressive linkage because one carb is in the center of the engine?

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

I have a Fenton like that that does clear the generator, at least with 94 carbs. It has the script between the carb flanges as in that photo. I can't be sure it's exactly the same without measuring.

Re: Flathead repair

Drop the muffler out and try it again. Run a wire up the exhaust pipe from muffler to engine looking for a blockage. Has the car been together long enough for rodents to full the muffler or pipes...

Re: Flathead repair

Definitely sounds like that. Where is the air through baffles sound coming from when you hear it? Rear of the car?

Re: How would you fix severly pitted crossmember metal?

Leading should work fine, would be harder than epoxy or body filler.

Re: Flathead deck height

I'd love to see what tools Ford used to check that dimension and some other difficult features on the flathead in the early '30s.

Re: Flathead deck height

FWIW, as a quick and dirty check I measured a 37 block this morning. I used a pair of dial calipers from the main bearing saddle to the deck, then added half the bearing bore. The bearing bore looks...

Thank you Dale! You are generous! Most folks won't appreciate what you just gave away in terms of hours spent to create and validate that.
