Re: moving stock oil filter?

For what it's worth, the stock filter bracket is spot welded onto the canister. I had to drill them to remove the bracket for a bloke a while ago.

You could easily drill the spot welds, remove the...

Re: 1937 21 stud head comparision

I have a pair of 21 stud '37 heads that i believe are either replacement heads, or they are Ford Pilot heads. They have the firing order on them. Dunno the compression ratios, and never bothered to...

Re: What is reasonable charge for engine work? 59A

I'm talking about the threads that the nut goes on to hold the head down, i'm aware of the threads in the block being different and that you definitely shouldn't use a tap in them, rather a...

Re: Fuel pump pushrod hybrid

Flatjack, would that not depend on whether or not the PM-7's fuel pump stand (as in the stand on the manifold, not the one the pump bolts to) is the same height as an original manifold?

Re: What is reasonable charge for engine work? 59A

Scooder,

Would you suggest running a die over the tops of the studs to clean the nut threads, and a simple wire wheeling of the deck to ensure cleanliness?

Or, what else / would you suggest?

Re: Is this a '37 engine?

Here is the picture of the front of mine that i sent Bruce the other day for an ID on the crank, as i'd heard mention of this "long" and "short" crank variates. Mine has as pictured, a twin pulley...

Re: Is this a '37 engine?

I too have a '37 engine, or at least what i believe to be a '37 truck engine (as over here we had Ford Pilot '37 style engines well into the '50s..) although it has standard block mounted water...

Re: Have a look at this concoction

Re: Question for my 'Down-Under' friends. Tell me about Model-A UTEs please.

I don't have any pictures of it, but my Roadsters chassis began life as a "Roadster Ute". It was an AR chassis, had an open cowl on it (that got sold off separate to the chassis).

The body or i...

Re: New to forum, newbie question

If memory serves me correctly, the later 21 stud and onwards water pump mounting heights are different to the earlier engines. Ford used a U shaped spacer to prop up the engines. I can't remember if...

Re: How has anyone delt with this zerk problem?

Why don't you just replace the mount, and while the old mount is out.. grease it up good.. put new mount in and forget about it?

Or do what mart said and the three washers ontop of the trans...
