Re: Pressure plate question

I have a fair stack of pressure plates you're more than welcome to sort through.
Also - Bob rebuilds them.

Re: What Defines Over-Revving The Model A's Engine

Hope this helps with the number crunching. I tend to run along around 2-2500 rpm which with a 3.27 rear end is around 50-65 mph.

Re: 3.27 Ring and Pinion

I run a 3.27 under the back of my Coupe. Stock A gearbox, with a tuned B engine. Probably around 70hp or so. Cruising at 55-65 is no problem and I've had no problems climbing hills when we've run...

Re: 3.27 ring and pinion, anyone using one ?

I run a 3.27 in my Coupe. Love it. Only a 27" tyre height though. Just done a 350 mile round trip at a steady 60-65mph. 30mph around town in top is no problem either.

To be honest the gearing is...

Re: 1931 Coupe Banger Project

On tarmac that'd be roughly my quarter mile terminal and still pulling hard. I've had a sat nav checked 85 over a mile when the engine was in my Fordor.

Re: 1931 Coupe Banger Project

I'm running Armstrong's on my Coupe. More than happy with them.

I'd look at running a single carb and stock water pump and put the cash saved towards a taller final drive. I run a 3.54 in my...

Re: Ford script cast in block just above water intake?

I have a 'GS' B block in for machining at the moment. It's certainly heavier with a thicker deck. I'll pop it on the scales next time I see it...

Re: Thomas head marked 8???

That's different from the Thomas head I have. Completely different chambers and the plugs are on the edge of the bores on mine. Not sure if I have any photos.

Re: MGB Shocks

I run MGB ones with the stock arm on the rear, but they hang too low on the front and hit the trackrod. How much clearance under the shock do you have Chris?
