Re: 1937 and 1938 cowl sides ?

That would seem odd as the is so much difference between 38 std and 38 dxl front ends. But I have never compared a 37 to a 38 dxl.

Re: Low cranking voltage

Did you put anything on the connections when you put it back together? A little grease can help with oxidation and corrosion.

Re: starter/sol II

If you jumped it across the solenoid and just ended up with sparks either the starter is locked up internally or something is locking up the engine.

Re: Question about clutch ball bracket/bushing

It depends, sometimes the ball is worn and no longer spherical.

Re: Pulling rear hub and axle shaft assembly on 50 woodie

Rich, then it's the bearing in the outer end of the axle that is tight?

Re: Backfire

Nice wagon! Are you sure the vacuum advance is working? With your new timing light you should be able to check that.

Re: Right hand output shaft removal

The rear axle has to come apart, the axles are removed toward the center section (after the axle housing is separated from the center section). This is what an axle looks like.

Re: Seat Belts ?

On the seatbelt issue, there is a lot more going on than the belt in an older vehicle. Among them are a solid metal dash and a non-collapsing steering column! All that said, I use seat belts as they...

Re: 1943 Ford 4 spd truck tranmission- part ID

Any chance it is stainless? Some stainless steel is non-magnetic.

Re: Distributor Ford 8 BA Engine 1950

Ronnieroadster here on the barn prefers:

"Set the initial at 10 degrees and go no higher than 24 for the total when the engine is turning over 2200 RPM. Works perfectly ever time."

Re: Distributor Ford 8 BA Engine 1950

I really don't know, would have to look it up. But in general a flathead wants the advance all in by 2000 to 2400 range and a maximum advance of somewhere around 20 to 24 degrees. Initial advance...

Re: Distributor Ford 8 BA Engine 1950

The manifold should not have anything to do with the distributor. The advance curve is changed by messing with the springs inside the distributor.

Re: Distributor Ford 8 BA Engine 1950

If it is an original load-a-matic distributor there is not a centrifugal advance. They are vacuum advance only and the vacuum source must be the carburetor vacuum port. The carburetor has to be the...
