Re: 1951 fan assembly

Except for special service vehicles, all Ford passenger car V8’s used the same 3 bladed fan assembly with the narrow groove pulley. I think it had the 8BA-8602 part number. This was one complete...

Re: Odd rear main seal housing

That setup is on every 1948-52 Ford truck flathead V8 engine. The metal part is pot metal and the two bolts that hold it in place pass through the two supporting brackets on the back face of the oil...

I think we have a full set in the back room in case your other offer doesn’t work out.

Re: 1951 bellhousing question

The 49-51 Ford passenger car bell housings are the same……stamped steel and the release fork does come out angled down. These bell housings have the unique starter plate that has the angled mount for...

Re: Bushings and reamers ***thread to end all threads*** add your knowledge

If you want a close to perfect fit on the clutch shaft bushings, I would get an adjustable reamer. I’d have to check to see what size we bought for the shop but the reality is that there are subtle...

Re: Warner T-9 question

They all had a reverse lockout mechanism. The early version had a little trigger finger release just under the shifter knob. Those were also obvious by the skinny rod that ran from the trigger down...

Re: Warner T-9 question

Which shafts are you referring to? There is no seal at either end of the countershaft or the reverse idler shaft. They are machined with a slightly larger diameter at the rear ends of each. That...

Re: Crank Pulley Keyway Damage

I think I am seeing the cast iron pulley in your pictures. If so, those tend to have cracks running through the bore. I stopped trying to find good used ones because after we had them cleaned...

Re: 59AB advice on "new" flathead

A wise mechanic also drilled the 1/8” holes in each lifter boss. Obviously, this should be done during the block prepping stage so that the waste chips can be cleaned out prior to motor assembly. Now...

Re: Lincoln clusters?

I took a quick look at my gear catalogs and couldn’t find the match. One thing I can say…..it’s NOT a Lincoln Zephyr gear from the 1940-48 era. The diamond shaped first gear teeth are definitely 1949...

Re: Van Pelts?

We were closed for a much needed week of vacation a couple weeks ago. COVID has boosted the number of phone calls and orders over the last year and a half. Not just for us but for all the vintage car...

Re: 4 Speed Leak Situation

Those shafts have a “push fit” as you slide them into the case from the rear, until you get to the last 1/2” inch or so. The shafts were machined with a slightly bigger diameter on the rear end so...

Re: 1936 Ford 1.5 ton 4 speed Transmission jumps out of 4th gear

Ford (and later on Borg Warner) never made or offered any alternate gears for those transmissions. The only gears ever made for that gearbox were the same from 1932-52 when they stopped making the...

Re: Help Identifying a Transmission.

Yes, of course that is very true. The photo was of the Sideloader version so my identification remarks were based on that. The toploader version existed from 1942-52. The sideloader version of the...

Re: Help Identifying a Transmission.

I think they may have begun offering the column shifter in 1950 models but the pickup truck experts can confirm that. The Ford F-1 pickup line ran from 1948 through 1952. The open drive Toploader...

Re: Shoe Box OD Transmission

49-50 Ford OD transmissions in the convertible carried a modified mount for the overdrive solenoid. When Ford moved the rear support forward for 1951 the overall modification allowed them to...

Re: Shoe Box OD Transmission

The rear support mounting flange moved forward for 1951 and the spacing for the two bolt holes opened up a bit to an even 6” center to center. The overall length of the 49-51 transmissions remained...

Re: Shoebox Overdrive Governors

Except for the early Lincoln overdrives (1940-48) all of the Ford based Borg Warner OD governors used the single terminal governor unit. I don’t know exactly what year the change occurred but they...

Re: I'm a turncoat...

The Hornet is absolutely beautiful! I own one of its later descendants (OT 73 hatchback). Your new set of wheels is just stunning.

Re: 49 wagon clutch size

They would have had the regular 9.5” clutch but 10” was optional. In either case, both had the 1” x 10 spline hub in the disc. They never came with an 11” clutch……that would have been overkill, and...
