Re: Bendix Brakes Question

19Fordy,
You are putting the strut, rear shoe and adjuster into a slight bind with the park arm on the outside of the shoe. Normally the struts and arms are "sided" L & R, so simply swapping the...

Re: gen/water pump/fan belt

The "B" series belts are industrial, not automotive, and can fail prematurely like mine did, likely due to the small pulley diameter of the alternator. A much better choice is the NAPA "22" series...

Re: elling my stash

Your not alone. I stopped collecting a few years ago and have already started a "stash" reduction. :)

Re: Bendix Brakes Question

Start by making sure shoes are properly adjusted, and the jack stands are under the rear axle to simulate ride height. Center the shoes by hand with the backing plates, and adjust the cables so...

Re: Brake Fluid

So, why did you list DOT 5 and silicone fluid separately? And what is "other"? :confused:

Re: Brake Fluid

Not totally correct. All brake fluid is technically "synthetic". DOT 4 simply has a higher boiling point that DOT 3, and is the main reason you don't want to mix DOT 3, 4 or 5.1 glycol fluids,...

Smile Re: Fan belt failure-Update

Brought home a NAPA 25 22545 and a Gates TR 22545 Green Stripe. These are 55.08" in length, close enough to the 55" belt they replace. Both are notched and for automotive use, unlike the B series...

Re: T-170 od trans to a 53 f-100

The '53 truck bell has side mounts, along with a centered front engine mount. A lot of work would be required to adapt a car bell.

Re: Dual master cylinder f100 brakes

Run one external 10 lb valve close to the master cylinder for each drum axle if none are internal. The 2 lb valve is strictly aftermarket and should only be used for disc axles when the master is...

Re: Dual master cylinder f100 brakes

GENTLY inserting a small diameter object will detect an internal residual, which is a small spring loaded rubber check valve.

You may have a "generic" master because the OE AMC would have two port...

Re: Dual master cylinder f100 brakes

Drum/drum and (drum circuit) disc/drum masters had factory internal residuals up to the early to mid '70s, but that's no guarantee today's rebuilds have them installed. Easy to check at the parts...

Re: Dual master cylinder f100 brakes

Piston size does mater, and is why disc/drum and most drum/drum masters are not 50/50 in fluid displacement output. The different primary/secondary port fitting sizes prevent the front and rear OE...

Re: Dual master cylinder f100 brakes

All drum/drum masters are not 50/50 in operation, so knowing the correct primary/secondary or front/rear plumbing is important. The port (hole) closest to the mounting flange is NOT always intended...

Re: Dual master cylinder f100 brakes

The dual master is a wise upgrade, but it has to be able to full stroke before the pedal bottoms out for it to provide the added safety, something many still don't fully understand. :)

Re: Fan belt failure

Thanks for info Bob. The big issue is these B series belts are rated industrial and not automotive. The notched BX belt probably would wear better but I will try the Green Stripe Gates next.

Re: Fan belt failure

John,

That's the info I need. Looks like the TR 22545 is very close to what I want.
My local NAPA said they would get a couple of Green Stripe belts for me to compare. Now I know what to look...

Re: Fan belt failure

The B series are not notched, but the 25 series are.

Fan belt failure

When I started learning about flatheads many years ago, the "B" series fan belts were what many recommended for 5/8" wide applications, and a 55" X 5/8" B 52 was perfect for mine.

The belt...

Re: Fresh 8BA oil pressure problem

Ross, hope you're right, just hard to believe a stock pump could produce 45 PSI at idle with 180 degree water temps and 10W30 oil.

Re: Intake Manifold Question

Off hand I don't know for sure, but my guess would be slight generator mount and/or fuel pump stand differences.

Re: Intake Manifold Question

The early '32-'48 engines sit level in the torque-tube chassis, so the carb base is also level. Ventilation enters the rear of the intake (fuel pump stand) and exits down the front, under the...

Re: 1946 Mercury Wiper Motor Trico

I had Ficken rebuild my '51 Trico motor. He does not sell rebuild parts, but his work is first rate.
