Re: flathead rebuild

Re: Wiring harness for 59 f100

When I rewired and converted my '39 p/u I used a Rebel wire kit. Very straight forward. You should be able to do it yourself using either a Rebel kit or another universal kit. If you run into any...

Re: What is the price of a rebuilt flathead??

I'm guessing that I had over 4 grand in my 8ba rebuild for parts and machine work but I really didn't add all the little stuff up, just paid for it as I went. Block tanked, magged, sonic tested,...

Sounds like you're drinking some of the good local craft beer that needs an opener, not the mass market twist off cap variety!:)

Re: Top radiator hose question

When all the normal suppliers were out of stock for 1 3/4 inch thermostat housings for an 8ba I bought mine from Gene at Model Engineering. Excellent quality, good price, and reasonable shipping. JMO

Re: 50 Car Differential Question

Another option is a rear end from a mid '80's to early '90's Ford Ranger. Wheel bolt pattern is the same. WMS to WMS is 56 1/2 inch which is about 1/2 inch less than my stock '54 Ranch Wagon. Not...

Re: 1936 ford front end

My '39 p/u sags to the driver's side. It's been that way since I got it. When I removed the front spring to repair cracks in the front cross member there were no cracks in the front spring. Added...

Re: Shipping engine

Not all Fastenal locations have forklifts. Check with the actual store before hand. Don't ask me how I know.

Re: 'Ford' 'FoMoCo' script,,,, paint/marker (?)

Probably not a problem with duplicating the Ford logo for your own use but selling something with it is an entirely different matter. Ford is kind of picky about that sort of thing.

Re: Lifting a 8ba engine

Only problem with using the exhaust manifolds is that they tend to crack. Not saying that I haven't used them myself but just a note of caution.

Re: Lifting a 8ba engine

Not a flathead but used one of the carb plates bolted onto a 2 barrel intake to remove a 302 and AOD from a Ford van. I was kind of nervous but everything went well with no issues.

Re: Upper radiator hose measurement

HRP over on the HAMB posted about using the silver flexible hose from an air cooled VW to form a mock up and then taking it to the parts store to match up a hose.
