Re: rebuilding a pre-36 steering box - parts interchangeability

The early Chevy pick up boxes are much supperior to the Ford boxes. Maybe you could find an early 50's Chevy box and bolt that in. They are recirculating ball design like a Vega.

Re: Basic trouble shooting 32 generator

I think Autozone could test it. I think grounding the lead to the cut out should make it go full charge.
The cut out just isolates the gen so not to run down the battery when parked.

Re: 221 connecting rods

I believe you would need the later crank with two oil holes for the later rods. I have one if wanted.

Re: Is this a Model B fuel pump?

The mounting holes are wrong for a B. It actually looks like it could fit a SBC!

Re: 12V vs 6V crab distributor

I used the “6V” coil. All coils run on about the same energy. Read the amps with the 6v system. Use a resister that gives half the amperage of the 6V system. That’s what I did.
This may be wrong but...

Re: capillary temp gauge available or modification??

I remember a fix that was in V8 Times decades ago. Get a new mechanical gage. You freeze the bulb so the line is not going to leak vapor/fluid. Get a sleeve and solder the new line to the old gage.
