Re: Restoring 1953 Mercury Medallion Assembly (front door trim panel)

I agree, that turned out great. Your project to restore the medallion was very interesting to follow.

Re: Serpentine System for Flatheads

The March website says they are using the power steering pump to tension the system. I think that is the pulley in the middle where the fan hub is usually located. One of those idlers should...

Re: NOS 48-7006 Transmission Case

I think that is a stamped number, not a cast number. I don't think you could get that resolution from a sand casting.

That doesn't address why that number is on there though.

Re: Traded for a French Flathead Block

George McNicholl documented the build of a blown French flathead in his book, "How To Build Ford Flathead V-8 Horsepower", if that would be of any help.

Re: Which way does this go?

I have a '37 coupe and the trunk seal goes on the body, not the trunk lid. I think it goes in like you are holding it, the right side goes toward the trunk opening and the left side toward the body,...

Re: Need encouragement head replacement

You will need hardened washers for the aluminum heads. The washers aren't needed with the cast iron heads.

Re: 30s Ford plant video

Thanks for posting the link to this great video. I especially like the section that shows the train cars stacked with frames being moved to the assembly line.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

So, how do you treat the small rust spots, spot sandblast or chemically?

I would also like to see more pictures of the tailpan and toolbox replacement. I have that repair to deal with on my '37...

Re: What in Tarnation?

Cummins bought Onan in the late '80's and the 6AT engine was part of that deal. I worked on 4BT automotive applications and knew some of the Onan engineers well at that time. I think the 6AT was...

Re: Broke down

Looks like Bonnie and Clyde left it there. I thought the burro broke down. Your plan sounds solid to me, good luck with getting the dwell set correctly.

Re: 1933 transmisson floor cover

My 1937 passenger car trans cover measured 0.0435 thickness. I used 18 gauge to repair the top of it where it had been modified and it worked great.

Re: Large axle nuts

I didn't know there should be a gasket under the washer. I think I see it in the 1937 Chassis Parts List, but it is not identified with a part number. What type of material is it made of?
