Re: Banjo hub bearing seat cracked

Before hunting for a replacement parts, you could have it "maganfluxed" at a machine shop. Most cracks are not in a straight line. You cannot take a chance on such a critical part.

Re: Holley 94 auestion

The brass part that is marked ".098" looks to me like the fuel inlet/seat of off a Stromberg 97? I don't think it's a 94 Holley part.

It is worth saving. Lots of people are building "dirt track" old cars. They need the 3/4T hubs, diff carrier, and axles. If they are using a quick change center section, they actually need 2 left...

Re: Ford Starter

An 8N tractor (6V) uses the same starter as a 60hp flathead. Your local New Holland/Ford tractor dealer should be able to supply parts for them. Their parts books ever carry the 52-part numbers. ...

Re: Clutch replacement costs...

Our local "new" car dealer charges a $95 an hour shop rate. This is in Tennessee. It's as costly as going to the doctor or dentist.

Re: Mystery Engine Part

I wonder if the PO had a starter drive spring break in the past? It looks to me like a piece of a starter spring drive? Both ends are ruff and looks like the shape of the starter drive.

2-bolt 59AB dist cast iron housings

Any ideas why Ford made cast iron 2 bolt dist housings? I would assume that during the war aluminum was in short supply, but after the war? Were they for industrial power units or heavy trucks?

Re: Dwell RPM meter

How long can our hobby exist? All the "old" parts men are gone. If it doesn't have a screen or keys, then most young people aren't interested.
