Re: 1932-34 Ford 3.54 reproduction gears

I just installed a set in my 32 last summer - did not need to do what you did, but I did need to clearance the bell on the ring gear side - such that the ring gear didn't touch and grind on it. I...

Re: 59a Engine Failed Big Time.

On the rod that broke, is the big-end still on the crank? Or is it all gone as well? My guess is that either the big-end seized on the crank (due to lack of oil pressure), or the cap came loose and...

Re: Speedo changer for Columbia 2 Speed

Thanks a bunch - that is exactly what I'll pickup - or something similar. Again, great idea to solve the problem.

Re: 38 heads

I'm not aware of anybody taking it into consideration these days - but would like to know if somebody is.

Edelbrock used to actually produce a right and left head - such that the chambers were...

Re: 38 heads

The engine should have domed pistons and you should be able to run what are commonly referred to as 39-48 center outlet heads. The 24 stud engines came out later in 38, so it should basically be...

Re: Speedo changer for Columbia 2 Speed

I think the real issue will be the diaphragm . . . if it is shot (and it probably is), then you'll need to find some sort of replacement. This is the same issue with the dual-diaphragm Columbia...

Re: Scam

Glad you got it back . . . that was an important milestone in this situation.

I'm not here to defend the guy when he didn't ship it back, but now that he did, I'm hearing a bit of "I sold you a...

Re: 39 Mercury FYI head gaskets

Okay - have to ask, how do you know it is a Mercury engine? What are the bore sizes and what else can you give us?

Re: 39 Mercury FYI head gaskets

Typically the 39-42 Ford 221 cubic inch engines have the trapezoidal hole in the center.

Given the amount of water holes on the deck of a 38-48 engine (any of them), I would not worry about having...

Re: Trim Ends of Cork Pan Gaskets?

Everybody has their own method - and it kind of depends whether or not you're using any of the new/improved BestGasket rear main seals or not. I think the primary reason for the cork extending into...

Re: Fuel pump collision switch

There are a lot of scenarios - that don't involve a ruptured tank or line. Just think about if you happen to tip the car over on it's side - you're in a ditch. Gas starts to pour out of the carb,...

Re: Installing replacement pistons

On the rods, I like to have about .015 to .002 or so - more on a race engine. On the mains, about .002 to .0025.

What type of rod bearings are you running - full-floaters or late style (49-53)...

Re: 8BA Piston Removal...Success!!!

I don't know - looks like there was quite a bit of rust in various areas of the bores. If true and if there is pitting, then why throw it back together without boring it? Heck, pistons are not that...

What I don't know is how deep can you go before you hit water?

Has anybody drilled an 8BA block to match the earlier 32-48 bolt holes - I have not. Do the castings have the necessary "boss"...

Re: 5/16" id or 3/8" id fuel hose?

At stock horsepower levels, you can run 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 - whatever you like. Truth be told, the 1/4" line will feed more fuel than you'll ever use.
