Re: Lock it or Lose it

Whenever I encounter a "wallered" out hole in a column drop I put a helicoil in and that usually brings it down to an acceptable size for a smaller set screw.

I'm a little late to this "survivoration" saga.
I wholly support the preservation aspect of it, especially the recycling so to speak of parts removed but too good to discard. Lord knows I had a ton...

Re: Bullet wire connectors onmy 40MERC

Most old Ford connections were two male bullet ends in a small metal tube covered by a rubber slip over sleeve.
If I have to replace a connection or create one I use new bullet connectors.

Re: Mack hills bed for a 34

Re: Throttle return spring and baling wire

Several years ago I spent the whole day, I mean all day,
almost 8 hours,
making up the neatest little bracket to actuate the brake light switch on my roadster.
It was a work of art. Really.

Re: Model BB bellhousing

The one you want when putting a 5 speed behind an A or B motor.

Re: 1932 Ford Pedal Pads Question

Ford also made cast iron ( I think or perhaps bronze ) pedal pads.
