Re: Toploader installation.

The one thing I was looking for in the chart is capacity of the differential. It's not listed. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks!

No! Two different dimensions for the F1? (Mine came from a '52.)

Re: Tradel Bishop AV8 question on a 30 -31 body

Another error is that claiming that the distance between the mounting holes of the F1 front shock mount is the same as the bolts at the ends of the front crossmember is wrong. I severed the curved...

Re: Tradel Bishop AV8 question on a 30 -31 body

In this case, the Chevy distributor is a killer. You have to have room for it to be in, room for it to move with engine movement and, finally, room to lift it out without having to remove the engine...

Re: Tradel Bishop AV8 question on a 30 -31 body

What's the length of your '40 torque tube? I'm putting together a '29 with a SBC. Temporarily, I'm using an A rear. (I have a '40 rear waiting in my trailer.) According to my measurements, a '32 and...

Re: Pall bearers..

Actually we were stopped at the Mc Donalds next door. I don't have enough exposure to Cracker Barrel. I guess I have to expand my horizons!

Pall bearers..

Pall bearers prepare to place body into my Chevy hearse at Brookville Ohio. Procession included stops at Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum and Early Ford V8 Museum, both in Auburn Indiana. Life is good.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Re: "Poly" brake lines...

Next time I go to get something, I'll take a magnet to see it it's just coated steel and I'll report back.

"Poly" brake lines...

I've done a few brake lines (flared and bent) in steel. Next project I wound up using copper nickel which I much prefer. I don't even want to think about working with stainless. But our local parts...

Re: Tailgate anti-rattle balls (1938 SW)

To drill the rubber balls, you might want to try freezing them, either in your kitchen freezer or by using dry ice. If you drill a hole in a ball that's being held in a vice, you could run into...

Pedal Return Springs

A few years ago, I picked up a pair of '32 pedal return springs from Roy Nacewitz. I just dug them out and find that one is longer than the other. Can anyone tell me which is for the brakes and which...

Re: F1 Brake return springs

Thanks for the spring info. I'll try the local parts house tomorrow.

Re: F1 Brake return springs

Thanks! It looks like I have about the same amount of "coil spread" using the upper holes on my shoes as your blue springs show. Also, the image on Fordy's post only shows the upper holes. So I'll go...

Re: Roadster Dash Screws

If you have a screw in hand, and want to be able to know its nominal "number" size, there's a formula for that. The nominal size is the "number" of the size multiplied by .013 and then added to .060....

Re: Parking brake cables when switching a 37 to hydraulics

On the '37, are the e-brakes actuated by the same rod / cable that the service brakes use? Have you looked into using the same cable used by '39 and up? (Sorry that I don't know that much about the...
