Re: who best to drop 1932 ford axle

Re: Lake Worth Florida car show

The show if I remember correctly is just off exit 93 of the Florida Turnpike.
On the West bound side of the road right there at the exit.
It's behind a Mobil station and bar.

Re: Lake Worth Florida car show

I hope to be there ....if they hold the event.
I always enjoy that one especially since it's a great change from the cold we had just escaped.
I don't cut keys at shows, I'm too busy running around...

Re: Throttle return spring and baling wire

Several years ago I spent the whole day, I mean all day,
almost 8 hours,
making up the neatest little bracket to actuate the brake light switch on my roadster.
It was a work of art. Really.

Re: Model BB bellhousing

The one you want when putting a 5 speed behind an A or B motor.
You may also need an adapter plate depending on the trans.
They were available a while back.

Re: 1932 Ford Pedal Pads Question

Ford also made cast iron ( I think or perhaps bronze ) pedal pads.

They were on big trucks and are rare and desirable I...

Re: 1934 ford coupe Rear end to high

If it's a Posies spring it will settle down over time as any spring will do.
It already has reversed eyes and you have reduced the spring pack.
Be patient, You have already done the most you can....

Re: leaky brake fittings

One lesson I learned years ago.....
Always use a tubing cutter when cutting brake line. A hacksaw may be quicker but the line is prone to leak after double flaring.
Just sayin'.........

Re: S-10 transmission on a flathead

I have a 32 Tudor that has an 8BA and a S10
I didn't do the swap........... I bought the car that way from a late friends widow.
It's a pretty simple swap as far as the engine to trans piece.
