Re: Need encouragement head replacement

You will need hardened washers for the aluminum heads. The washers aren't needed with the cast iron heads.

Re: 30s Ford plant video

Thanks for posting the link to this great video. I especially like the section that shows the train cars stacked with frames being moved to the assembly line.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Kube, thank you for the additional information. I remembered you had said earlier in the thread about plastic bead blasting the sheet metal. I was not aware of the limitation this process not...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

So, how do you treat the small rust spots, spot sandblast or chemically?

I would also like to see more pictures of the tailpan and toolbox replacement. I have that repair to deal with on my '37...

Yeah, but I can't tell if he is signalling a right turn or a left turn.

Re: Cleaning running boards

Hmmmm, this sounds like a scene from the movie, "World's Fastest Indian", about another Kiwi, Burt Munro. Burt supposedly used shoe polish to get his old tires past the tech inspectors. I really...

Re: 02022020

I think that calls for a beer to celebrate. I know the "Big" game hasn't started yet, but what the heck.

Re: What in Tarnation?

Cummins bought Onan in the late '80's and the 6AT engine was part of that deal. I worked on 4BT automotive applications and knew some of the Onan engineers well at that time. I think the 6AT was...

Re: Broke down

Looks like Bonnie and Clyde left it there. I thought the burro broke down. Your plan sounds solid to me, good luck with getting the dwell set correctly.

Re: 1933 transmisson floor cover

My 1937 passenger car trans cover measured 0.0435 thickness. I used 18 gauge to repair the top of it where it had been modified and it worked great.

Re: Large axle nuts

I didn't know there should be a gasket under the washer. I think I see it in the 1937 Chassis Parts List, but it is not identified with a part number. What type of material is it made of?

Re: Vibration - rumble

I have never seen a clutch hub loose by design. It looks like the center of the clutch plate may have failed also.

Re: Which Cam

Kiwi, that is a sweet sounding engine and the cars looks great also. I was thinking that would make some inspirational background music for the shop.

Re: Turbo encabulator(might not be a ford product)

That link works as good as the sinusoidal dingle arm mentioned in the video. Great discussion, I am sure there are a few components mentioned that can be applied to our Fords:-)
