Re: Flathead Friday. Bust out the Buma! And the BFH! Boring for liners..

Thanks for the responses, fellas. The liners were in the freezer roughly an hour. Only on No.2 did I get the effect I expected. That one had no hylomar at the top of the bore, that might have made...

Re: Repairing frame rust

That's pretty mild, in my view. I used some material from a later frame that was in pieces. I have also used 3mm steel cut from a piece of rectangular tubing. Make sure you vee it well and if you can...

Flathead Friday. Bust out the Buma! And the BFH! Boring for liners..

I finally get the Crusty flathead block set up and in a position to start boring for liners. Four of the bores were so badly deteriorated a liner (sleeve) is the only viable repair. The basis of this...

Re: Where has billben/flathead gone

Re flat towing: If you prop the clutch pedal down it allows the natural drag in the gears to keep things turning and circulate oil around the box.

Hi Neil.

Well, that is a snapshot capture of the site at some time in the past. It has already gone and you can't guarantee all the links will work.

I think that bearing might make that noise, as it fights itself to keep straight. Who knows?

Why not reassemble up the parts but put that bearing on the left and...

Re: Vibration - rumble

That hub/drum looks like a 32-34 to me. They're supposed to be used with 1.5" brake shoes. If you're running juice brakes they're 1.75" wide. I have that setup on my 33. The shoes will rub...

Re: leaking brake fittings 47 1 ton pickup

Are the rear wheel cylinders finished with a flat surface for the copper washer to seat on to? I've never dealt with truck parts, but know the car cylinders don't have such a surface.

Re: FINALLY…T5 WITH Torque Tube in a ‘35-’40 Ford...The WHOLE STORY!

Hogshead is the name given to the removable bellhousing on the heavy duty truck transmissions. (Can't remember the years). They make useful adaptors.

Re: 39 rear drain plug

I took a 1/2" allen bolt and ground/filed the end square with a slight taper. I haven't used that for ages though, 9 times out of 10 a 3/8 ratchet fits well enough to undo the plugs.

Re: torque for master cylinder bolt

Well, the torque is a bit less than what you used last time then.

Sorry couldn't resist.

Re: Flathead Friday. It ain't always exciting.

Yeah, Ralph, it's getting better all the time. It's just miserable and wet here, not proper cold like around your way. I don't feel the cold, just wrap up warm. My mate used to say: No such thing as...

Flathead Friday. It ain't always exciting.

Latest video offering. Just cleaning up the block prior to setting it up for boring. It scrubs up quite well considering how crusty it was when first bought. I also take out the drain plugs out....

Not trying to be a smartarse, but your question is lacking in enough detail to answer it.

Re: torque for master cylinder bolt

I believe he's talking about the 1/2" threaded banjo bolt that holds the brass distribution block on the back of the cylinder. I don't know the torque. I just use a suitable sized spanner (wrench)...

Re: 1940 Ford Pickup Cowl Vent Mechanism

Re: 47 pickup tranny

I have a 3 speed in my 41 and 3.54 ears, with 6.50:16s. It runs nice at 45 and will go quicker if I want.

If your truck tops out at 45 there is something not right. It should go a lot quicker...
