Re: Looking for a better rear end

One thing to consider with those late model rear axles is that they are geared for overdrive transmissions. While they have a good (read fun) ratio for around town, you would be running higher R's on...

Re: Drop Axle Installation

There are two reasons to bend the arms; they first need to be heated at the kingpin boss twisted outward to permit full swing of the spindle (more so with an original axle that has been dropped, than...

Re: Problem with front axle made of a mixture of parts.

Bend the arms; those dropped tie rod ends are not very cool looking.

However; if you are limited in having an adequate torch; they may be something to consider. You will also need to narrow your...

Re: How did you do the link cords on your LED's??

I just doubled them back on themselves and wrapped with a couple small tie wraps; but I also was able to clamp the bundle to my sheet rock ceiling.

Re: KR Wilson axle stand specs questions

^^^ Interesting add; had never thought of using it for front axles; probably would work better than the bench vise I usually use.

Re: KR Wilson axle stand specs questions

Makes sense; the stand could serve as disassembly station before repairs to the axle and a reassembly stand after the banjo was repaired. Guess. if you had a way to handle the complete unit, it could...

Re: 1940 Ford Pickup Cowl Vent Mechanism

Same as car? Saved this a while back; but never put the vent together to know if it is an accurate guide.

I had the same thoughts, too. What was the stand generally used for "back in the day".

Re: 1934-35 front hub/drum source?

The later hubs and drum assembly will fit on the spindles; but the offset of the earlier backing plates is different, making them incompatible.

Re: electric seats

If you have a 12volt system; maybe try this. Locate an early '80's GM bench seat set up.

'42 passenger bumper ID question

I have a bumper kicking around that has a 21-A-17757-B parts tag and writing (on the back) indicating it is a '42 bumper; but it does not have the usual contour I would expect.

It is similar to a...

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

^^^^
How does the pedal effort work out with the 4 to 1 ratio compared to the 6.4 to 1 ratio of a '39-'48 juice brake pedal using the same 1-1/16" bore Ford master. Thinking that is why the V-8...

Re: discussion on way to make a press for stainless to hubcap dish

"Parts in the oven" are similar to "parts in the dishwasher"; both best done when the wife is gone long enough to do the job and erase any evidence.

Re: Whats it worth? 30-31 Briggs fordor

First thing, you need better pictures.

Look at how the pictures are structured on a pro car brokers web sight and do the same.

Good paper in your name is important these days.

Re: side view mirror

I've found that I could not angle the clip-on mirror inward far enough on the R/H side. I angle ground the bracket as much as I could to bring it in further; which made it just barely usable.

Re: V8 60 king pin lock bolts

Seems like the application listed for this part is overly wide; I've only seen the round lock pins in early Model A's and the tube axles.

Personally, I would drill the axle and use normal lock and...

Re: 1935 torque tube

Are you relocating the spring hangers? Seems like a front spring would be too narrow as the original front spring perches are about 42" inches while the rear perches are 48".
