Re: 1936 5 Window exhaust

About 30 years ago, I built a '36 3-window with a 276" Merc. Being a relative neophyte back then, I decided a 2" exhaust system all the way back would be the cat's ass. I got it done, but it was ...

Re: stromberg 97

The vacuum source on the carburetor shown is not located anywhere near where it is on a 94. They must have done some "creative" work to get the proper vacuum signal waaaaay down there.

It seems...

Re: 1949 Ford 8n Tractor

A lot of times, I go to my local FLAPS looking for a part. They have no idea of what I want, but if I give them the part number, they say "yeah, we have them in stock, they're for a Ford tractor".

Re: mallory dual point distributor

These usually have an SBC advance curve (total 36 degrees) when a flathead Ford (because of the combustion chamber differences) needs less (22-26 degrees). The earlier models have a plastic "Key"...

Re: What's Behind Your Flattie?

"Charlie ny"- Does the transmission you have have the early ('49-'64) bolt pattern? Do you know if the mount and shift linkage work (with minor modification)? I know you're not local, but.......

Re: What's Behind Your Flattie?

I agree with Seth about the current transmission being up to the job, even with a "warmer-over" engine. I think Seth may also be confusing early vs "shoebox" transmissions. While the combo he...

Re: 8BA Piston Removal...Success!!!

Terry,

That sounds like a real good idea, The only downside I can see is that you may bend some valves, but if you're going to replace them anyway, who cares.

Re: Scam

I'm not letting you off that easy. Shipping on something like a hood would have to be a lot, which may factor into this in a major way.

Re: Scam

That's a useless answer. If I knew how big a package it was and how much it weighed, I could do that. I don't and at least a couple of the posters on this thread do.

Re: stubborn rear brake drum seal removal

Maybe because a good original used seal is better than a new replacement of unknown origin and quality?

Just playing Devil's Advocate here.

Re: Scam

Just out of idle curiosity, how much does it cost to ship a hood?

I would be extremely interested on how this is done; it would solve a lot of problems for me. Can you provide the details?

Re: Steering Box Ford 1949 sedan

Maybe we should rename this "The Ford Barn Internaionale"!:D

To the O/P; I would take Murre up on his offer; he is one of the "good guys" and I believe he will be an excellent resource for you.

I don't know much about them, but if the vacuum port is on the base, it's nor what you want, The Load-a-matic needs a port in the middle of the carburetor body to supply "venturi vacuum". Unless what...

Re: pro or con HEI

If you want it, go for it; it's your car and won't hurt anything.

Just do me a favor and paint that blue cap black; a guy can only take so much.

Re: 39-40 coupe struts

He said above that already has tube shocks; this is why I mentioned "air shocks". Shocks are shocks; struts are springs and shocks in one. I, for one, would not ask one to do the job of the other.
