Unless you use sealed bearing pumps, new or rebuilt.

Re: sleeved wheel cylinders

That is pretty scary! And just completely blew my faith in ever sleeving a cylinder.

Re: Speaking of rare!

A friend of mine just sent me the pictures of his newly built hot rod, and those are his heads. I had just never knew the company name, or heard of it in flathead discussions.

Re: Speaking of rare!

Sorry, had to copy on my phone.
Left head, S.A.E on one end, firing order on the other end.

Re: What flathead is this?

If you can get the measurements, you can have the radiator built by several companies such as brassworks, or walker.

Speaking of rare!

I am no expert on flatheads by any means, but I have never heard of, or seen a set of these heads before. IMG_3718.jpeg

Re: Complete 8BA Flathead - what can I expect to pay

I’ve bought six or so in the last few years, $100 to $300 depending on if it is stuck, turns over, runs, or has a Merc crank. But I’ve also been given a couple free ones, one of which is only good...

Re: '35 Ford Coupe Rear Fenders

They can be a bear to remove sometimes. I had to replace a few while pulling my fenders.
I made a simple fixture to hold the cage nuts in place while I welded them.

Re: 37 Hump conversion to Flatback

My preference is the slant back, much better looking IMO. Best bet is to find a donor car for the sheet-metal.

Re: replacing fuel line: 39 pickup

Is it prebent, or are you bending as you go? I too must do the fuel line on my 35 coupe and was pondering the best way.
