Re: Firestone Air Balloon Wheels and Hubcaps

Hey Brian, just wanted to thank you for reminding me about this issue - had known about it for years, but it had slipped my mind (I had typically ran Ford wire wheels on other cars). You "got me to...

Firestone Air Balloon Wheels and Hubcaps

When I was in my teens, my Uncle and I went through a junkyard in South Dakota and I found 3 Firestone bent-spoke, adjustable wire wheels. I wasn't sure as to what they were, but I liked the bent...

Re: Throw out arm travel

Looks like your setup should work just fine - as long as your MC has enough fluid volume for the travel you need.

Re: Sharp, Edelbrock or modded OEM heads and head gasket

It will make little difference as to which brand of head you use (on the street) - if they're all setup correctly. The single most important detail is the squish or piston to head clearance. You...

Re: Anyone with experiences working with Gocat speed shop?

I'm sure it is a lot more than just a normal "rebuild". When you start getting up into these dollar figures, it can easily include $5000 of all the cool "go fast" goodies that many folks want --->...

Re: Eastwood spray gun

This is a good recommendation. I have a two-gun Devilbiss Finishline HVLP setup - a regular big-gun and a smaller touch-up gun. I also have top of the line digital HVLP SATA stuff.

Re: Who lightens flywheels? Looking for a shop

Exploding flywheel: Pete's story is one to pay attention too . . . I just don't like the potential of a cast iron flywheel to potentially grenade. (I'm not going to risk my feet to find out).

If that is the wall thickness, then this is what you'll need to turn/grind the original down by. :D

Re: 1932-34 Ford 3.54 reproduction gears

Re: 59a Engine Failed Big Time.

On the rod that broke, is the big-end still on the crank? Or is it all gone as well? My guess is that either the big-end seized on the crank (due to lack of oil pressure), or the cap came loose and...

Re: 38 heads

The engine should have domed pistons and you should be able to run what are commonly referred to as 39-48 center outlet heads. The 24 stud engines came out later in 38, so it should basically be...

Re: Speedo changer for Columbia 2 Speed

I think the real issue will be the diaphragm . . . if it is shot (and it probably is), then you'll need to find some sort of replacement. This is the same issue with the dual-diaphragm Columbia...
