Re: Brake adjustment 1937

You don;t need a hokey jury rig notched board. The parking brake operates the cross shaft just like the foot pedal does. Use the parking brake one notch at a time till you discover the sweet spot for...

Re: Marsden nuts

This coincides with what i'd been told, that the shaft on the shock link was shortened to provide a margin of safety for the larger tires of the Mercury, introduced for the 1939 model year. This was...

Re: signing in

Now John, you know I'm 79. She's supposed to give me a clue, and she does try, but then... she's no spring chicken either. :D

Re: Spark plug terminals in Helmet dizzy cap?

Tinker, I believe those to be the stock terminals, which when installed are fully enclosed within the female sockets of the inner cap. If I'm not mistaken, the OP's question involved the way the...

Re: Spark plug terminals in Helmet dizzy cap?

Good question. Unfortunately, there is barely room for the wires, let alone adding terminals that would also need insulation from each other.

Re: '37 headlights

Assuming that you are running the original 6v positive ground system:

Go through all your electrical connections from battery on through and back to battery. Clean, grease and tighten all...

Re: '53 car No Charge after sitting a few months

Newc, I'd suspect oxidized connections preventing the charge, attitude adjusted with the hammer. Clean, grease, and tighten those harness connection points!

Re: Valve adjusting

Thanks, the sequence was handwritten for me by an old timer. Now I'm the old timer and I got CRS.

Re: Valve adjusting

There are instructions for adjustable lifters I used once (can't find them now), spark plugs out, carb blocked open, one rear wheel off the ground, tranny in reverse, adjust two valves per position,...

Re: Valve adjusting

I had Chevy 6's back in the day, which were easy peasy to adjust while running. The last one I did was in a '55 tudor, back in 1968. As I recall, the only real messes were due to being too cheap to...

Re: ford B engine

As you have removed the governor from an industrial stationary engine, I'd respectfully suggest you address the ring ridge before you crank it up.

Re: Stromberg 97 and Holly 94 core prices

A side note on the history of 97s preference over 94s: Hot Rodders of old were limited to 97's due to the early design of dual manifolds, the 97 being narrower front to back. For a pair of 94's to...

Re: 1939 axle/ tubes questions

Rather than bumping it out, I'm thinking you could fabricate a jig to be used with a C clamp.
The axle looks good as is. Turn it over and examine the keyway for cracks at the inner end. Also, use...

Re: Trqnsmissions casting numbers

That's not to say they are the 91A forks. Look on the underside for the large 91A cast in numbers.

Re: Trqnsmissions casting numbers

That one, if it has the 91A forks, should be worthy of taking it to a swap meet. I'd probably clean it up nice and put a proper label on it saying what it is, and maybe ask $75 and take $50. Maybe a...

Re: Starter wrap

You should have told the guy that would be about as effective as wrapping your head in bubble wrap when you have a headache.
