Re: Large axle nuts

And, of course, for anything like this, you should try Fred at "Southside Obsolete" ("barnfind08" on here).

Re: pre-bent brake line kit - 39/40 Ford quality

Just about all of high-end European cars use the "soft, flimsy stuff". I have used it and like it. Granted, it is out of place a a high point restoration, but for a modified vehicle, I really like...

Re: Colorado Flathead Rebuilder

Re: Distributor rebuild with pictures and video

One question : why machine the lip off of the vacuum brake plunger? Aren't you worried about the leather disk getting displaced?

Re: Oil dipstick boss

I believe "GOSFAST" on here has a plate that goes inside the pan that allows the dipstick boss to be attached positively with machine screws. It is probably something that should be considered.

Re: Loss of Hot Rod Deluxe

I'm waiting for Alzheimer's to kick in a little bit; then, all of the old mags I have from the '50's through the '80's will be new again!

Re: Which Cam

OK. I don't see why anyone, after looking at the specs of all cams available for your engine, would even consider the 77B. I went through this a couple of years ago when I was deciding whether to put...

Re: Looking for exhaust port layout drawing

Who makes flathead exhaust gaskets that are one piece per side? I have only seen the individual port kind.

If you think that's tough, take a gander at "The Copper Clapper Caper" with Jack Webb and Johnny Carson sometime.

Re: '35/36 Sedan Delivery interior photos needed

I love Sedan Deliveries, but they have terrible rear vision unless you add some honkin' big outside mirrors on them, which would be a shame with a vehicle like that!

Re: Incorrect timing on pulley of 53' Mercury

Boy, I don't know. If the front pulley was that far from being all the way on, I would expect it would be impossible to keep the fan belts on.

Re: Drop Axle Installation

There is one more thing that may be of interest to you. Some people have had better luck pulling the perch pins out of the axle rather than pushing them out. I know there is a thread on the H.A.M.B....

Re: Built a louver press

That's all very cool. All I know about louvers is that a guy in high school had 4 rows punched in the hood of his '50 Ford. It looked good, but from then on he had to contend with rusty spark plugs.:D

Re: NO Bubba? then who

I agree with the above. It's really rude to ask a guy who has problems finding time to run his business for a freeby.
