Re: Rebuilding Early FORD V8 Distributor

Good deal Charlie!! You always seem do those little extra things to your distributor, carburator, and fuel pump rebuids that mean so much for the quality and reliability of your rebuilds.

Re: How to identify a coil rebuilt by Skip

On the ones he has rewound/rebuilt for me, they have my initials etched into the bottom, or on the sides of the bottom. Also a lettered date code of the rebuild, and a build number were all etched...

Re: Failed Restart Ignition Resistor

Good idea! I've found brand new resistors that were poorly crimped at the ends of the wound wire causing intermittent function in the ignition supply circuit. I've had to silver solder them to make...

Re: 35-36 Water Pump - Pulley Removal

Re: Gearbox Question 1939 / 1940

Re: ford 1937 jack

Re: cam change in the car

Great coverage by both B&S and Brian on the original question by Chuck Stevens. You can tell these two guys have been around the block a few times, working on these Flatheads.

Re: 59A flathead oil passageway plugs question

Mart, I agree with you on the cross sectional view of that fitting, shown in Don's posted picture, as not being as good as the separate ferrule design. I've worked on and owned a few of these Early...

Re: 36 fuel pump flare fittings leaking...

Not a good idea to use Teflon tape on any gas fittings on these old Ford's, from gas tank to carburator. Any minute pieces of Teflon that might make their way into the carburator will cause problems....
