Re: Isky cam

The only cam I see that has "101" is the "track" listed in the attached.

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

Hi DD,

I think it is to provide additional stiffness and support of the starter plate/flywheel cover, but the starter is well supported anyway with the through bolts. Seems like you could run...

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

Regarding the torque, 120-130 FT-LB. See message #9 from below but "good and tight" is good!

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

You're welcome David!

You need more heated volume of gas, i.e., Oxy-Acetylene which you can't get with the MAPP. It is hot enough but not enough heated volume of gas such as you can get with a...

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

Hi David,


I don't believe the MAPP gas will get it hot enough. You need to get it to around 1500F. The MAPP gas may be hot enough but you need more volume of heated air from the torch.

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

Regarding dropping the pan without pulling the motor, a lot of work but best long term solution. These are a couple of links I found for your info.

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

I snapped a picture on my 32 to show the King pin lock bolt that Mart mentions. This is probably not what you want to do based on your response to him.

Hi V8Coopman,


What I was trying to tell him in message #102 is that if he needs to put the rod end in from the opposite side of the Pitman arm to get extra clearance, the taper will be in the...

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

The taper for the rod end may be wrong too. There is a drill or reamer that will put a taper in from the opposite side, half way through the Pitman arm hole.

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

Yes, so since this will give you the clearance, you will need to heat and bend. No throwing it in a bucket of water to cool it down as Mart mentioned!

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

No reason it can’t be flipped other than interference. Maybe the drag link will be too long to accommodate the “flip”. Check from wheel lock to wheel lock. I would also make sure that your coupler in...

Re: Hydraulic brake adjustments.

Hi,


So since this started with the recent brake bleeding, you probably have your shoes adjusted properly.



Did you bleed the brakes starting from the furthest brake form the master...

Re: 36 Ford drag link orientation question

So as said here by Mart and JSeery, rotate the steering wheel from either end to the middle, 2 7/16 turns WITHOUT the drag link connected. Adjust the length so the rod ends JUST drop into the holes...

See Mart's message above for the proper way to set the length of the drag link.

Re: Power disc brakes 1950 ford f1

You could also consider using a remote power booster. Midland Hy-Power units were used in some late 50's and 60's Fords but are hard to find now. PBR boosters are available either VH44 or VH40, 7"...

Re: Rear Disc Brake Conversion

Note that 60 to 70% of your braking power is by the front brakes. Lincoln self energizing drums on the back would be effective and much easier. You may get more feedback on the H.A.M.B. site.
