Re: Building up my 59AB

Thanks Ron for the information. Could I get away with just keeping my 59A crank and rods while going with the 3/8 bore pistons?

Re: Building up my 59AB

Thanks Ron and Pete. I'm in the reasonable comfortable. Can you explain a little more of the 3/8 x 3/8 build?

Re: Replacing head gasket

Torque them to a 45 foot pounds. You'll wanna do that a couple of times after your flathead heating up to tempature. I say seven times just to make sure. As for a thread sealer I would recommend the...

Re: MN Back To The Fifties this weekend. Anybody going?

I will be there looking for a new flathead for my 47 Ford Tudor. Discovered the engine oil turned to a milkshake, and found coolant in the valley after removing the intake manifold.

Re: Just bought a '51Merc

It looks nice and looks very familiar too. I think I know that car. I see you are from Minnesota. Are you part of the Early V8 Ford Club? Join them and our Twin Cities chapter.

Re: Wring crimping tool?

Trust me. it works. It is the same size, that's what I just said earlier. 6V and 12V has little to nothing to do with it. I wouldn't be saying this if I wasn't sure. I'm using those things on my 1947...
