John,
If you've had such good luck with the Corn Head grease, why change to the Penn Rite?

Re: Wheel studs

Shoovell, You have discovered (as I did) that the dimensions in the Dorman catalog are sometimes not accurate. Ordering one at a time is a good strategy. I collected quite a few single studs before...

Re: Flexible Metal Brake Line

OK, I'm convinced that the original Cunifer tubing is better than the Asian imports. Who supplies the original stuff and/or how does one contact Federal Hill?

Re: Wheel studs

As Tim Ayers suggests, I recommend that you find the Dorman Hardware catalog online and search through the extensive listing of wheel studs. I suggest you try to find one with a knurl diameter...

Re: KR Wilson spring spreader

The attachment shown allows the KRW spring spreader to be used on 35 - 48 front springs. It won't work on the 32 - 34 springs. Other methods, some mentioned in this thread, have to be used for...

Re: Another loss

I always made a point of stopping at his Hershey spot to chat. A great guy always willing to dispense wisdom based on his many years of driving his 32 Tudor. He will be missed.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Sugarmaker,
That is one nice truck. The condition is amazing considering that dump trucks usually have a very hard life.

Re: ID Issue with a 1932 Ford

Tom,
The serial number just in front of the firewall foot is often very hard to read since it is somewhat exposed to the elements. It is usually very close to the inside edge of the top flange. If...

Re: 1932 V/8 Upper Hoses

Another resource to find hoses for modified applications is the downloadable Gates catalog. It has dimensions and photos of every molded hose they make.

Re: Source for GL 140 Gear Oil is here.

Sta Lube SL24238 is available on Amazon now for $25 per gallon. NAPA seems to want $37.49 for the same thing. Usually NAPA in-store is cheaper.

Rear Spring Bars

Spring bars go on the bottom of the spring and the U-bolts go through them. Several years/models will work. The holes for the U-bolt should be 3.5" apart. Send me a PM if you have some. Thanks. John

Re: Inner Tubes for Radials?

V8 Bob has the straight skinny on the history and purpose of the safety bead on the rims. One of Chrysler's many innovations.

Re: Removing shackle shells, KRW BV-121 & V-170

The V-170 shackle stud remover is marginal at best in removing the shell after the core has been removed. The T-handle of the V-170 is simply unable to supply enough force. The much stouter BV-121...

Re: S curve radiator hoses, warning .

The 20151 hoses are 49-51 Ford lower hoses. They work well in some 32 installations - where the needed outlet/inlet offset is about 1.5" or so.

Re: 8ba engine

Ron,
I agree that the Autothermic pistons are great for a stock rebuild. But as far as I know, they are not currently manufactured for flatheads. I'd like to be proven wrong on that.
