Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Mike, as with anything when you find something that works, stick with it! Out of curiosity do you use Nason on the sheet metal as well?

When built proper the 32-35 transmission shift just fine for my...

Re: Where to buy 1936 Brake Shoes?

If you wish to use macs, why not just skip them as the middle man. If you google the address listed in the post above it brings up a clutch and brake shop.

Re: Igniton gureu's...next step/questions

You can remove the coil and use a analog ohm meter between the breaker plate and a ground. As you spin the engine over the needle should bounce each time the points open and close. If the needle does...

Re: Ebay sales tax in place

They take a percentage of your sale, a percentage of the shipping, charge you a fee for your store (I think ours is the $400.00 a month version), and charge you a listing fee per listing per month...

Re: Ebay sales tax in place

eBay used to be and still is a good gig, however I pay them more in a year in fees than I make as a income myself.. As a seller eBay has made the sales tax change easy. For the buyer, there was no...

Re: 1934 Missing -Covering My Bases

Karl good job diagnosing it! I had a 34 I did a mechanical restoration on similar to yours. One day it wouldnít start. The brass buss bar in the oil Chex gauge had burnt up.

Re: Drag Link Rebuild?

As V8fordman mentioned, they CAN be rebuilt, but the 35 36 version with the side fittings and the later.. The issue is the time and effort involved.. I almost always ruined the stamped round end...

Re: XXXX it !!!!!!! Crabs ????

Jim I laughed as I read this, as I’ve done the same thing. And I’m sure you won’t be the last. In my instance I was building one out of spare parts and accidentally grabbed a 6cyl weight.

Re: 1933 vs 1934 v8 engine

I would have to imagine that is due to the introduction of the stormberg carburetor. What I canít understand is why the 32 engine was rated at 65hp and the 33 at 75. What change caused that?

Re: 1933 vs 1934 v8 engine

Frank,
The one in your photo has the incorrect thread pitch, and I believe they are for Model A . They are NO current "NEW" drains that match the original 33-34's, and originals seem to be hard to...

Re: Flathead Valve Adjusting Methods ??'s

Lawrie,

That’s a good and likely more accurate approach. I’d assume your lathe doesn’t have a DRO, if your using the compound slide?
