Re: Shoebox drop leaf springs with blocks

Has to be hard on expensive tires... price of cool without understanding performance.

Re: Shoebox drop leaf springs with blocks

For a 53 and pre a-arm fords. Might not be an issue flipping spindles but the astro springs or both. Probably something that could be made also, might add a couple gussets.

Re: Shoebox drop leaf springs with blocks

Both are good options for the front. Up till 54 it's hard to adjust the camber. There is L bracket that bolts to the frame and allows the upper arm to be bolted too and allowing adjusting camber with...

Ive done a few on craiglist. Better up here. In Florida we would go in teams out to the boonies. Emails and no trace phone numbers. Always was fine. Only one time I tapped out on a sale for a HD...

Re: Need choke if stalls

Just a thought. How do you start a flooded out motor. Stomp the accelerator, and crank the piss out of it. Choke adds more air velocity but less air. Lean/rich? What do the plugs look like?

Re: 32 Ford Knobby Tires

Think Coker has them. But maybe why you are asking for alternatives. I run 16 - 700 military ndt 6ply on my truck. Love them. Lot more options with a 16" wheel

Re: Is this original engine?

The 37 block was installed into early-mid 38 trucks. Installed the end of the run of blocks that were made in 37.

Re: 1937 pickup window regulator

I'd suggest that at all points the spring should not unravel or lock. If it wraps or locks out the spring is too tight. If the window won't roll up all the way I'd think it was wound too tight.

24 bolt, non finned original heads should have made in Canada embossed. Just ground out. Think I see a few letters in your picture post. If I'm right or seeing it right. Not mine, but for reference...

Re: Is this original engine?

As mentioned by JimTN. Canadian heads were aluminum for 24 bolt 59a. Cheater heads in the roundy-round crowd. After 50-70 yrs I wouldn't assume anything is original to the line. 21 bolt fords went...

Re: 1939 Juice Brake Hose question.

Re: Shoebox drop leaf springs with blocks

With blocks and wheels you should put into the equation of a scrub line. If you blow a tire you don't want to blow a rear end. 4" blocks put my 53 with the ubolts on the tarmac if I blew a tire.
