Re: Conversion U-joint

I found out years ago that the driveshaft shop was the best way to go! They have the knowledge and resources to get what is needed, and to my surprise better pricing that the parts stores. You will...

Re: Distributor Coil Location

It can be a reasonable distance, but the firewall might be a bit to far. The temp should not be that much of an issue. The early coils were on top of the front mounted distributor and the later ones...

Re: 1940 ford rear suspension add ons

Just need to see what you have with the coils removed. If it is low in the rear it may need the spring replaced or re-arched.

Re: 49 flathead rebuild. Fuel?

A 49 should have hardened seats, but I would check with the builder. The fuel octane is going to depend on what you have done to the engine. Most flatheads are very low compress unless something...

Re: Fuel pump just as a pass thru

That's fine until a diaphragm splits and you fill the crankcase up with fuel.

Re: Perhaps Another "Dumb" Question

I would check to make sure there are no leaks around that area on the intake manifold, but it should be fine.

I like to old Hot Rod wheat penny method, it should be your birth year.

Re: 1947 Ford - convert to open drive line

I haven't done this (T5) conversion in a 46-48, but the body style/year shouldn't make much difference. The only real issue should be the frame clearance. It will most likely require some...

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

I would sure try the filler before I started welding or drilling holes in my block! Reread post #21, #29, #30 & 36. You really have nothing to loose trying it except maybe a head gasket.

Re: '40 Brake Bleeding

Sounds like the method may be part or all of the problem. I like to step on the pedal (requires a helper) and then crack the bleeder screw for just a second or so. Re-tighen it, have the helper let...

Re: MOPAR PCV use?

Anthony, I don't see anything wrong with your build, been done hundreds of times. It is just something you need to keep in mind when considering other modifications.

Re: Hot Fordy

I would not change the thermostats, unless they are hanging up (not opening).
It is very unlikely they are the issue. Thermostats determine the lower end of the operating temperature (in this...

Re: Perhaps Another "Dumb" Question

The short answer is no, unless something else lead to a leak in the process. How did you block them?

Re: Stray Voltage?

You just about need both types. Digital is best for some things, but analog is far better for other types of measurements.

Re: Transmission Oil

Here is the comparison between the different viscosity ratings. But keep in mind that the additives are very different between them.

Re: Calculate actual quench height

Why not check the piston to head clearance on the engine. You can use clay or aluminum foil balls. Place the balls in several areas around the edge and the center of the piston. You can check it...
