Re: A-team performance distributor issues

Are you sure the plug wires are in the correct position on the distributor? And the distributor is installed correctly so the rotor is at the #1 plug when the timing marks are lined up?

Re: Identify this engine.

Mice in an engine is a very common story and it is rare to be able to take an engine that has been setting around (especially with components off) and get them to startup. Almost all of them need to...

Re: 1936 lower radiator hoses installation

That sounds like the hoses are oversize. They should be at least a little difficult to get on.

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

Ok, I will modify my post. I have never attempted to bleed brakes without the drums on and the way I bleed them it would not work. I put a lot of pressure on the brake pedal, and thus the...

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

You can't bleed brakes with the drum off, so that would be a place to start. There is nothing for the brake shoes to push against.

Re: '41 won't crank when hot

Think this is because (at least to me) the original post was not clear about the issue. I was under the assumption that the starter was not turning over correctly when hot. Seems the issue was more...

Re: 32 sedan door latches

If you look on the inside you might to able to see the weld marks where the original holes were located. Unless a section was removed and a new panel welded in.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

That's the way I would read it as well (and the way I have always checked a cam). But I can see how it is somewhat confusing to then put a valve clearance in with the event specs.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Think I would stick a shim in between the lifter and the valve stem to get the valve lash out of the process.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Problem is if the valve lash is in there it will change the opening and closing events. I have always used zero valve lash, but the cam specs are a bit confusing on that.

Re: Left and right cylinder head

The wiring diagrams were not always updated to the latest configuration, so it could have been a 41 mid-year change.

What was the wooden box on the side in the trunk for? I've heard it called a tool box.

Re: Left and right cylinder head

The 1942 wiring diagram is the first to show the two temperature sensors.

Re: vacuum source

Not real easy to see in this photo of the top, but if you look at the bottom of the manifold you can see the channels that connect two adjacent ports for the vacuum source.

Re: Wiring question

Ford used what are referred to a bullet connectors. And yes, they pull apart.

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

If flatheads ran hot you wouldn't need thermostats, LOL. The thermostats do bring the engine up to temperature quicker, but they are also required to maintain a minimum operating temp. It is not...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

I assume you have the cam timing specs? It is not totally clear from what you posted what lift you are checking at. The spec is for .020 valve lift with zero valve/lifter clearance. There is a...

Re: My '34 Won't Turnover

Around 37, 36 still had a floor starter switch and 37 had a firewall starter solenoid, but not sure if it was a model year change or not.

Re: Spark Plug Reading

Try taking it off and on and see if there is a noticable difference. Shortest path to a solution would be using an A/F ratio meter.
