Re: Diaphragm clutch noise?

I ordered mine from Jegs also but they are drop shipped direct from Centerforce. The PP part number is CF365222. Sold as a direct replacement for a stock 10" clutch. I'm lucky in that my PP is...

Re: Diaphragm clutch noise?

Since I don't want to make pulling the tranny a full time job I just ordered a new Centerforce diaphragm PP and disc. They are actually sold to fit the early Fords and use the stock throwout bearing...

Re: Diaphragm clutch noise?

Planned on doing that but its a custom job that I machined so it will take a little more work. It uses the stock Ford carrier and the smaller throwout bearing that the diaphragm PP needs.

Diaphragm clutch noise?

So my wife started hearing a very light chirping noise and we figured out that it happened when I pushed in the clutch. I immediately thought it was the throw out bearing and decided to keep running...

Re: independent front suspension

Re: Shop led lighting

They make both line voltage LEDs and LEDs that use the existing ballast. If your fixtures have existing electronic ballasts it is really easy and cheap to just replace the bulbs.

Re: 1948 f1 metal bed conversion for shortbed

Re: HELP what fender is this???

I'm assuming this is for the rear of the truck. Doesn't look right to me. Should be a crown the length of the fender. The front of the fender should have a flat that extends out slightly to meet the...

Re: Cast steel vs aluminum crab distributor

Pulled a cast iron one out of a truck at the local junk yard some years ago. Just had Bubba rebuild it this spring and I'm running it now. He really likes the cast units.

Re: 1940 ford pickup tailgate chain install

I don't have springs on my chains but I can see how they would make lowering the tailgate easier. Without them I have to put pressure on the gate so the hook doesn't slide out as I hook the opposite...

Re: high rpms breaking up

Mine will do that if I really stand on it and rev it up between shifts. I pretty sure mine is a float or fuel pressure issue causing it to lean out.

Re: What are the must haves for you're shop?

Milling machine is really handy. I use mine more than my lathe. You will find the blast cabinet is really great to have. Makes old rusty parts look like new.

Re: Car Show Pic

Tinker, that's my feeling too. "Factory restored" or "restored to factory condition" describes an exact form of restoration.

Re: 38 Ford windshield

As I remember the shaft is splined and the handle just slides on to the crank. The clip holds the handle in the dash. So technically the dash is what holds the handle on to the crank shaft.
