Re: Floor insulation/sound deadening

Re: King pin bolts 1932

OK, the light went on! Not really sure why I was thinking of cross-steering and I don't use cross-steering! LOL. Yes, you need the aftermarket steering arm with the later spindles and steering box...

Re: King pin bolts 1932

Not super clear in the Green Book diagram, but the bearing is #3123 and goes on top of the axle. #3121 is the felt and goes below the axle.

Not sure why TJ believes you need to add anything to...

Re: Honing wheel & Master Cylinder

Re: Ballast resistor

Assuming here you are still 6v positive ground and using an original style coil mounted on the distributor.

Re: Ballast resistor

The Box is the Circuit Breaker for the lights. Should not have any relationship to the mounting of the Voltage Regulator.

Per the wiring diagrams 39s should still have the fuse, Ford went to the...

Re: How To Make and Aluminum Engine Block

I believe the sleeves are smaller OD for part of the length with a wider OD and O-rings at the bottom end. Looks like the water flows between the sleeves and the aluminum block.
