Re: 1940 merc & ford x member replace

Zeke3,
In 1964 I bought a '40 Ford and proceeded to put a SBC in it. All stock Ford drive train. Ran well and was reasonably fast. By '67-'68 the 289 Fords were kicking 283's butts. I had to have a...

Re: 1940 merc & ford x member replace

Zeke3,
You had to cut the firewall to put a 289 in a '37 Ford? I put a 289 in a '40 about that same time and cut nothing.

Re: Floor shifter

You can make a real good floor shift conversion from the column shift mechanism from the older Ford's. I made one in the early 60's for a '54 Ford I had at the time. Had a friend that worked in the...

Re: problem to start

56yblock,
Go to Ted Eaton Balancing on the internet and it will show you how to modify your carburetor for your distributor. Hope this helps.

Re: Anyone use these drill/tap all in one?

These draps were for CNC machines where speed and feed were controlled. They came available in the 60's.

Re: 1952 F1 with a FE 352

blucar,
I never had any of the troubles you stated with 289's or 302's. Back in the 90's I put a '74 302 [pre unlead] in a Ranger just to see if this evil modern fuel would kill it. Guess what, I...

Re: over heated coil

Check the primary resistance of the coil. Should be at least 3 ohms.

Re: AutoLite 216's in Offy heads

JSeery,
See post 19. The picture shows Autolite 4092 plugs [ 1/2 in. reach]. The chamfer takes out a little less than a 1/8 in.

Re: AutoLite 216's in Offy heads

I don't think a flathead will ever see 1500 PSI cylinder pressure. A 14mm plug has about a 1/4 sq. in. surface so, .25 x 1500 = 375. Don't think that will blow out a spark plug.

Re: Wheels, would like opinions.

Perfect! Wheels look good. I had one the same color back in 1964. Drive it and enjoy as your youth is fleeting fast!

Tubman,
Have you notified Briggs & Stratton of their design error?

My fix. Simple and runs very well. I use Autolite 4092 or 4093 plugs.

Re: Should I be concerned?

My '48 F-1 had a manifold like that when I bought it. The engine leaked oil all over and had fumes inside cab! I changed to the correct manifold and problem solved. Before and after pictures.

Re: Floor shift in 53 f-100

Made a floor shift out of the column shift mechanism on my '54 Ford. That was in 1961 or 2. Worked well.

Re: 55 Ford ranch wagon water pump question.

I have a '81 Fairmont with AC and a late 80's Thunderbird EFI 302 and thermostatic controlled mechanical fan that was on the engine. It has never ran hot under any conditions.

Re: 55 Ford ranch wagon water pump question.

Why do you want an electric fan? Use a fan off a Ford with AC.
