Re: Mart's Update: Bits and Bobs 3. 1932 Ford Frame Fix x2. Rad test. Rich's F1.

Thanks for the comments, fellas.

Re: lowest oil pressure for engine to survive

What you just said makes sense. The 80 or 50 lb is a maximum. When warm, running down the road or at idle you are nowhere near the blow off pressure of the valve, so beefing it up makes no...

Re: Installing Rear Hub On A '40

Re: Crank has no clean out plugs

59s don't have 'em.

Don't need them because there is only one oil hole per throw. It can be drilled straight through. The 8BA type have two oil holes per throw so they need the cavity in the throw...

Re: Updating with a crab distributor

WhizzerNick asked for the best way. There are many ways and the best way is the one you are happy to use.
