Re: Brake adjustment 1937

Are you referring to the swing arm type of gauge that mounts to the spindle? The title of the attached photo is "Vlc tools to check centering of break shoe model A-B-V8 (front and rear)"

Re: Weak Spark

I have recommended dyno tuning to several people who did so and liked the results.

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

The carburetors are going to be the same size and require the same spacing on any of the manifolds. If you move the one carburetor back to clear the generator the second carb will have to be further...

Re: The "W" Block

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

That arrangement looks like it would have very poor distribution between cylinders.

Re: 3 brush generator ????

The original out-cut is an on/off switch, it cuts the generator in at a given rpm and out of the circuit when the engine is turned off. Sounds like what you have is a regulator inside a cut-out...

JWL says 400+ dyno runs, that should give you some ideas.

Re: Early V8 Dyno Work

There are several books out there on the topic. One is JWLs (who post often here on the Barn) book. Joe Abbin also has books out with dyno data.

Re: Help with transmission selection

LOL, but it is easier to get an adapter and clutch parts for! Lot of data out there on the S10 swaps.

Re: Early Ford/Mercury automatic transmissions 51'-55'

Don't think it will be documented, it would depend on who did a rebuild, when it was done and what parts were used.

Re: Early Ford/Mercury automatic transmissions 51'-55'

Sounds like there is still some confusion on why you use one specific transmission fluid vs another. To a large extent it depends on what is IN the transmission more than which transmission it is. ...

What Ted said. Wouldn't think it would be any more difficult than any other attempted fix in that area.

Re: starting problems

You can try bypassing the resistor and see how it works. Take the wire that comes from the ignition switch and move it from the ignition side of the resistor to the coil side of the resistor...
