Re: 39 Tranny troubles

The only ones I've ever seen are 3/8" NF, with a 9/16 head on them (this is on a 39 trans)

Re: 34 shocks

Take the dog-bones off and see if you can articulate the arms. If they are not sloppy and you can feel nice hydraulic resistance, they might be good. Also, pull the filler plugs out - are they full...

Re: Model B 4 cyl engine

Unless you take it all apart, inspect the block for cracks, have it pressure tested, etc . . . there is really no way to know what condition it is in.

I'd consider it a "core engine" in its...

Re: Transmission pops out of second

You'll not be able to diagnose the issue by looking at it - I only wish it were that easy. You'll have to take it all apart and start the process of really checking clearances, wear, etc..

Re: Columbia not engaging

Nice to know it is something under the dash - other than the fact it is a total pain in the butt to work under the dash. I usually pull the lower seat bottom out and put some nice thick padding on...

Re: piston size

If you're going to all the trouble of rebuilding the engine, why just try to patch it up with just rings? Now - if this is strictly a money issue, then I get it . . . so I'm not trying to step on...

Re: points firing

Something very important to know: The end of the cam has a SLOT in it that the tang on the distributor slides into. The slot/tang are offset from the centerline only 1/16 of an inch.

Re: 1942 Ford deluxe coupe project

Also, just to be picky on the 'safety side' - glad to see that you have a proper chain setup on it in the last pictures.

In the previous one where you had the engine in the air with a chain...

Re: 1942 Ford deluxe coupe project

Looks great! Did he have the exhaust manifolds ceramic coated . . . or just paint? I bet you guys will have that car on the road soon!

Re: Columbia not engaging

If it was mine, I'd disconnect the rod from the manual dash switch and then use a big screwdriver or other "tool" to see how the firewall valve operates. You'll then know how much travel it is...

Re: Hydrolic clutch

Hey Rico . . . don't assume anything is exactly correct (with the current Columbia valve). The point is that you have to think about the fact that the vacuum valve is secondary to the clutch...

Re: Edelbrock Slingshot

I don't believe the '100 made' story either . . . not the one that says only a couple hundred sets of Ardun heads were ever made. Our HotRod world is FULL of ole' Wive's Tales. LOL

Re: Columbia not engaging

You should probably contact one of the expert vendors for Columbia related stuff (where some of your parts came from) - to find out the proper adjustment and testing procedures. The last thing you...

Re: Edelbrock Slingshot

The casting isn't quite the same as the originals (not as refined - a bit bulkier) . . . but there aren't many of the originals around anyway. It is a great manifold, and you should be able to...

Re: Hydrolic clutch

You've been in good hands with Coop and it looks like you've figured things out. One thing to think about on this is that you don't want the vacuum valve to be a hard stop for the clutch pedal. ...

Re: Transmission pops out of second

What I have usually found is it is related to clearances and wear. If the caged-roller bearing surface on the front of the mainshaft has any wear, that is an issue. You want the end-play on the 2nd...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Hey Chris: I don't know a thing about B motors, but it looks to have a big rubber "slinger seal" on the back? Am I seeing that correctly? What can you tell me about it?

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Hey Chris, the oil passage alignments look good - maybe in the prior picture the shell wasn't "centered" side to side. Good that you checked it out - never hurts to double check anything related to...

Re: Overheating Flathead

Are you using thermostats? Sometimes a thermostat might not open, or only open part way - causing overheating issues like you're talking about.

Re: just got a motor what year

If the heads are what came on it, then it is a Ford engine - 221 cubic inches - 3 1/16 bore, with 91A or 21A rods. It will have the earlier crankshaft style - with an oil slinger instead of a rope...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck
