Re: Arcing New Brake Linings

Here is a poor man's solution for arcing the shoes if you need to increase the radius as the drums wear. They do need to be off of the car. Use a very heavy ball peen hammer and an anvil. Strike the...

Re: V-8 Fords on Film

There is the 1953 film "Jeopardy" with Barbara Stanwick. Lots of scenes with a 1949 Ford Convertible. You can watch a steamy preview on You Tube. Jim in San Jose

Re: Nothing better to do but work.

A comment to nelsb01. I just finished assembling a 1935. For whatever it is worth, I bolted the battery ground strap to the motor mount near the brake return spring. The starter worked a lot better...

Re: 1936 alum. heads

The owner of Kearney Foundry told me their patterns for the Aluminum heads were sold to H&H in the LA area. I don't know if they are making them or not. Jim in San Jose

Re: 1935 Ford Floorboard Patterns

I am not too swift with the messaging tools on the Barn. Did you try to email me? The passengers side front floorboard is still available for the postage. Jim

Re: Brake Adjusters

I have floaters from "Flathead Ted" in Australia in my '32 5 Window and my '35 Phaeton. I am very pleased with them. I don't know why Henry didn't do it this way in the first place. Jim in San Jose.

Does anybody have a US source for a coil tester like the one shown. This one is a little pricy on ebay at $50 and I would pay that except it is in Columbia and would be 3 or 4 weeks to get to me. I...

Re: Anyone with experiences working with Gocat speed shop?

Re: Flathead "spark knock" ???????

I know this is just terminology but I have always called the noise loose connecting rods make "knock", and this noise being talked about here "ping". I am I alone in this view?

Re: Transmission is locked up

It is in the car, the top is off and it is definitely in two gears at once. It is locked up tight. My real problem is how do I free it? Can I cannot get the cluster gear or the main drive gear to...
