Re: Steve Ryan Collection, Parts for sale at Trexlertown

Yeah and it's the date of the Jacktown meet too. I'd love to go down to the Luray meeting too. Brillman used to come to Jacktown but not in the last few years. I think he's from Mt Jackson, Va....

Re: Keeping Tailgaters Off Your Back

Well For one thing, Radar blasts everybody with microwaves. It's like sticking your head in a microwave oven. Not exactly, but similar. Secondly, we're finding our way around radar tickets. I've...

Re: Question about Shifter and E-brake boot's

If there are no boots in the 30-31 and you want to keep it stock then disregard this. However, if you're like me and don't like them unbooted may I suggest the modification and the use of modern...

About Detonation ?

OK,I think my coupe's engine has "a head" on it, I think! Just who's head or what the C R is, is anyones guess. But it seems to run strong with a bored out manifold and a B carb. Good acceleration...

Re: HP & Torque For Various Cylinder Heads

Re: Spring Hanger (Shackle) Bushing dimensions

I was at the Leesport car show Saturday and I saw an old package of 4 rubber/ neoprene shackle bushings for a later Ford. Couldn't help but to think of this thread! They were a two piece affair that...

Re: Front axle restoration

Sighting Rods are known to have been used by ancient "Primitive" people for whatever surveying they did! They work! However, one question, looking at that axle in the picture, It will come out of the...

Re: Police engines

This raises some questions . Such as why not A-1 for the A police heads, Also, B for B heads. And the best question of all, what about a police head for the mod Bs. I understand the V8s were the...

Re: Police engines

As far as I know, Ford made them as an option for the police depts that were buying his cars. But why the "B" for an A, and the "C" head for the model B? Strange!

Re: Police engines

I wish I knew what the HP increase is over the standard head. But that head (Pictured) would scare me. It appears to have entirely too much removed. I could be wrong, but! I believe in shaving...

Re: A Very Disturbing History of the Company and 1930s Germany

As a part German-American, I get tired of these attempts to slander anyone by painting them with a "NAZI" brush. In the 1930s, Hitler was a very popular man. Time magazine even made him "Man of the...

Re: Spring Hanger (Shackle) Bushing dimensions

I'm straying away from automotive into marine, but we've all seen examples of where a solution from one sector becomes applicable to another. You're correct about "Cutless" bearings. I just couldn't...

Re: Spring Hanger (Shackle) Bushing dimensions

Brent, what you're talking about is "Oilite" bronze, Boston Gear sells Oilite bushings. Why not contact them and get a price on 500 or a 1000. What you don't use you can sell. Actually, that wasn't...

Re: Keeping Tailgaters Off Your Back

Here in Pa., I recently got a speeding ticket for 40 mph in a 25 mph zone. I talked to some people about it and they had gotten speeding tickets there too. That ticket was $152. Ouch! And Pa doesn't...

Re: Spring Hanger (Shackle) Bushing dimensions

What about fusing some hard rubber to either the OD or ID. This is not as crazy as it may sound. I have seen prop shaft bearings that are made that way. These bearings had to deal with water, sand,...

Re: Spring Hanger (Shackle) Bushing dimensions

I would love to see someone extrude a tubing (steel or brass) in the correct diameters for replacement bushings. The last ones I installed were small 14 (?) gauge plates that have been rolled into...

Re: The Death Wobble Thing, Brakes

T.B., Ok so the caster angle is only 3-4 degrees and you want to increase it to 6. How is that done? By heating or twisting the front axle? Suddenly the need for a tight (No slop) spring shackle...

Re: The Death Wobble Thing, Brakes

I've dealt with enough Death Wobble to know something about it. It can be caused by almost anything loose in the front end. One partial cause was the spring shackle being worn out. It later turned...

Re: Keeping Tailgaters Off Your Back

I like the 1903A3 ! Who said "Kill one! Frighten a thousand!" Seriously, I almost got hit twice, turning left into my own driveway so I made this little sign.

Re: Door striker screw thread?

Just a minute! Henry used a seldom used thread size in the model A. It is the 12-24. A little bit smaller and the pitch is a little bit finer than a 1/4-20. But they appear very similar when seen...

Re: Preload spider gear alternative

The spider has been hardened true! But it's not so hard that it can't be drilled. If your drills (Harbor Freight) won't cut it, get a 5/16 drill from a machine shop or a machine shop supplier. My...

Re: Preload spider gear alternative

The spider gears act as a stop for the axles, I believe. There is a center hole at the center. There is also a center hole at the end of the axle, hence there is nothing to contact either or both...

Are those steel chips? Where are they coming from? Ring and or pinion? Bearings and or races? All of the above? Is the rear getting loud? Look I don't want to spend your money for you, but to...
