Re: 8BA in '37 coupe ...

The easiest swap would be to replace your 221 with your perfectly running 59A. You won't notice much difference if you install a stock 8BA. I have an 8BA in my 40.

Re: What kind of heads are these - 49 Merc flathead?

Probably an idea to flow more water to the rear of the block for better cooling.

Re: 1950 Ford Tudor 8BA Flathead will not start.

Install the stock 2 barrel intake and carb and I bet it will fire right up.

Re: front brakes

RalphM: My error. You are correct. You can reuse your old hubs if you install new studs.
I don't know if MT sells the studs.

Re: front brakes

Like Mart said, these MT Products drums will work but, you will have to use new hubs and best to reuse your old bearings.

Re: split pins usage

Keeping the drip hole in the early Ford v-8 oil pan was a good use for a split pin.

Re: split pins usage

Some folks call cotter pins "split pins".

Are you referring to a "roll pin"?

Re: engine mounts torque

Just tighten it down until it's snug and the cotter pin fits. No specific torque.
You don't want to "squish" or crush the rubber mount. This is an 8BA but, same technique applies.
