Re: Flatheads breaking off engine stands and falling.

I am pretty sure the repair done in that article was on a race engine that had a clutch explosion. Cooks Machine did those repairs on engines that had extensive port work done, so it was worth the...

Re: Installing a 32' Roadster Body

A related question. Does the frame welt go front to back all the way on the frame, under the firewall feet, front fenders and gas tank, or just under the body itself.

Thanks,

Neal

Re: Symptoms of worn out sector shaft?

Glad to hear you sorted this one out. The mounting bracket didn't come to mind, but makes perfect sense now.

Re: 1936 Steering Box Replacement

If you use a 37-39 box with original hardware intact, the 36 light switch will clip right in. No adapting required.

Re: 48 to 52 f1 steering box

No, that is not the case here. 37-48 passenger car steering box internals are the same as 48-52 pickup internals when they are both either LHD or RHD.

LHD sectors have the roller canted to the...

Re: 48 to 52 f1 steering box

Most early Ford parts suppliers have the RHD worms. All other rebuild parts are the same as LHD, granted your sector shaft is rebuildable. And the comment above is correct, in that 37-48 Ford car...

Re: 30/31 v 32-34 steering box mounts

I assume you are referring to the "sector housing". If so, yes you can install a 30-31 Model A sector housing on a 32-34 steering box. I just did one with 15:1 internals for a Model A.
