Re: Tie Rod & Drag Link Cups: Steel v. Teflon v. Bronze

No, just bronze. Not bronze impregnated Teflon.

OH wait! I see it now :)
The suppliers agree with me I think, that the Teflon IS too soft.

Re: Front Spindle Measurements

Do you mean 'inner'?

Are you looking for the Ford spec, or what people have measured?

It helps to know what you're working on.
Are you troubleshooting the fit of bearings to spindles?
If so,...

Tie Rod & Drag Link Cups: Steel v. Teflon v. Bronze

I'll be rebuilding the front end soon, but I want to complete my research first.

I've seen a couple of posts about this subject.
Those posts are hiding from me, like fame and fortune.

Re: Electrical motor to produce vacuum...is there such thing?

You can use almost any air compressor, just hook up to the intake side instead.
You'll need to do some fabricating of course.

Don't forget that air compressors and vacuum motors tend to run...

Re: Ignition Switch

He's a good guy.
He did a rebuilt pop-out switch and original key for me.
Works great.

He also runs ads on ebay all the time.

Re: Timing gear

Aluminum. You'll sleep better at night knowing it will last as long as the car.
They will run quite, as long as your gear back lash isn't too large.

Re: Rear Spring Installation

Are you using the spring clamps for the 7 leaf spring?
Different leaf counts require different clamps.

It's not an on-line auction problem...it's a human mind-set problem. The problem existed long before there was an internet.

Re: pickup cabs

The all steel Budd cabs are considered by many to be desirable because they are 'cleaner' on the outside, but they tend to ride noisier.

You'll find many of the Budd cabs are paired with the...

Re: pickup cabs

No. 1 is a late 1931 Budd-built "all-steel" cab with steel bows and steel roof.
No. 2 is a mid-1930 to mid-1931 Ford-built cab with wood bows and fabric roof.

This is unconfirmed until you post...

Re: Posting this for a chuckle, unless you're grumpy, in which case you may hate it

These reply's are hilarious.
I think that when the past owner hung them on his wall, he knew what the value was.

Imagine the previous owner seeing this ebay ad. :eek:
I'll bet he's laughing...

Re: Purpose of dual points?

I believe there are two different types of dual point systems for vehicles.

Re: Dual Condensers?

Re: Dual Condensers?

When you say "This spike can be 400 volts or more", you're saying it can be 'a number up to 400, or more'. Effectively, 'any number'...

My understanding is that the voltage rating is the voltage at which the insulation becomes ineffective (or breaks down). Is this correct?

Why the very high numbers in voltage ratings for these...
