Re: 6V Voltmeter

"V8" - I wonder what the "X 2" means on the VDO gauge?

Re: 8BA doesnt have power

From what I remember, 8BA carburetors did not have a "spark valve" (that thing that looks like a power valve that screws into the carb base). That is on later carbs (2100's and 2110's). If you do...

Re: 8BA doesnt have power

Just a side note. I really like the small base 4G's as well. I got real lucky and found a matched pair (both from '53 Olds Stick cars!) that I rebuilt for an early Offenhauser dual quad on a '51...

Re: Pulley casting number

"B 16" looks more like a date code than a casting number to me. I'll take a SWAG and say narrow belt 8BA.

Re: 6V Voltmeter

To directly answer the O/P's question, I have looked for several years and have never found one that would be practical for automotive use. Those made for 12 volts will function, but will either not...

Re: 8BA doesnt have power

On the other hand, I drove my bone stock '51 club coupe for 31 years (1987-2018) without missing a beat, 94, Load-a-Matic, and all. These are simple machines to work on and I never had a problem with...

Re: Large axle nuts

And, of course, for anything like this, you should try Fred at "Southside Obsolete" ("barnfind08" on here).

Re: pre-bent brake line kit - 39/40 Ford quality

Just about all of high-end European cars use the "soft, flimsy stuff". I have used it and like it. Granted, it is out of place a a high point restoration, but for a modified vehicle, I really like...

Re: Colorado Flathead Rebuilder

Re: Rear Axle Nuts

For NOS ones, I would check with "Southside Obsolete" ("barnfind08" on here). That guy seems to have everything!

Re: Distributor rebuild with pictures and video

One question : why machine the lip off of the vacuum brake plunger? Aren't you worried about the leather disk getting displaced?

Re: Oil dipstick boss

I believe "GOSFAST" on here has a plate that goes inside the pan that allows the dipstick boss to be attached positively with machine screws. It is probably something that should be considered.

Re: Loss of Hot Rod Deluxe

I'm waiting for Alzheimer's to kick in a little bit; then, all of the old mags I have from the '50's through the '80's will be new again!

OK. I don't see why anyone, after looking at the specs of all cams available for your engine, would even consider the 77B. I went through this a couple of years ago when I was deciding whether to put...

Re: Looking for exhaust port layout drawing

Who makes flathead exhaust gaskets that are one piece per side? I have only seen the individual port kind.

Re: Turbo encabulator(might not be a ford product)

If you think that's tough, take a gander at "The Copper Clapper Caper" with Jack Webb and Johnny Carson sometime.
