Re: drive shaft diameter question

Looks like the early pinion and driveshaft. Does your center section have no reinforcing ribs either?

Re: So why did Ford go from 21" wheels to 19" wheels?

Keep in mind they changed the way the edge was designed too, from the rolled over open 28-29 to the seamless 30-31. I consider it one of the many design improvements to 30-31 models.

Re: is this shock on upside down?

The shocks on both the front and back are supposed to hang down like that.

Rear Shock Arms

Looking for a pair of good rear shock arms that are not bent and have good balls.

Re: Front Bumper Brace Bent

I just did this to my roadster a few months ago. First off compare the shape and bends to the good one. Maybe make a diagram.
Bad news is that you have to take it off the car, put it in a vice, and...

Re: Cheap Reproduction Head?

I think that is an aftermarket part - I've seen a lot of them on cars that were last worked on in the 50s and 60s. Haven't really seen a lot of them at swap meets though.

Re: Antique Engine Rebuilding

I have been wondering that too - will he continue to make them? Should have asked him a few weeks ago.

Re: Brake service rod

Somebody probably took a piece of threaded rod and made one for whatever reason.

Re: Rear spring and shackle bushing

I ordered the shim stock and that is what I will try with some loctite. Couldn't source any other bushings that were the right size so this is the direction.

Something else worth mentioning is...

Re: Rear spring and shackle bushing

Thanks for the good ideas. I am going to call Brattons and see what size their bushings are. If all else fails, I'll either do the shim stock idea or loctite, or both.

Re: Rear spring and shackle bushing

Yes I was thinking about calling Snyders. Something I forgot to mention was that the holes in the spring are perfectly okay - they aren't wallowed out or damaged in any way. Took a swing with...

Re: Fan Clearance from Water Pump

Usually this is a problem with the new leakless water pump housings, but yours looks older. I would check your fan nut in this case and check the keyway if you can to make sure it is in good shape...

Rear spring and shackle bushing

I tried putting new bushings in my rear spring leaf and the ones I bought from Snyders a few years ago are too loose. They measure 0.75 outer diameter when the hole is really closer to 0.765. I have...

Re: Transmission Roller Bearings

As I said in an earlier post, it has turned out to be the rear end so I can't really answer that question. Something in the back of the drive train can amazingly sound like it is in the trans.

Well now I think it is the rear end or u joint, but I do still want to know this.

Re: Engine oil again

Something that plays a big role in engine oils is the clearances inside. Thicker oil won't provide sufficient lubrication in very tight clearances. All I know is that I was told to use 5w30 in my...

Re: runs rough after head gasket replaced

I would say it is unlikely it is the gasket rubbing on the distributor. Could be timing, point gap.

Re: Rebuilding Distributor

I think the body wears at the bottom and maybe the top a bit. The washers are there to prevent that. On the bottom I like to use steel washers as the fiber ones don't last nearly as long.

Re: Do I need new actuation rods?

If you have new operating pins, you shouldn't really need them. Of course the way you are supposed to restore the actuating arms is welding up the lip that touches the pin and filing it back to...
