Re: 49 vs 50 car water pumps

I have an 8BA with trock pumps and one wide belt and another with the two narrow belts. I prefer the narrow belts. I can't quite put my finger on why, but I have a gut feeling the single belt is too...

Re: Need for early condensers?

Michael, I still need a distributor/coil, I'm just waiting to get back to you until this thread runs it's course. I'm kinda hoping someone can put some definite numbers on this.

Re: Need for early condensers?

I guess I must be a little dense; Measure what? Show what? I am sure that you guys will get some readings from your impressive electronic gear, but what do you get and what does it mean? What does...

Re: 8ABA engine distributor?

As for a distributor, first decide if you want vacuum over mechanical advance, or just mechanical. You then get a suitable SBC distributor (either GM or aftermarket) and send it to one of several...

Re: 8ABA engine distributor?

Derek, I think you should slow down and do a little more reading and researching about what you are trying to do. If you really do have 80 lbs of oil pressure at cold idle like you said in another...

Re: Battery purchase & best shut off location

A lot of people don't like them, but for something like this, I'll use the ones that mount right on the battery like a terminal and have a green knob to make or break the connection. I use them twice...

Re: Need for early condensers?

I am curious what your reason for this would be. This is not to cause any conflict, but to find out what is actually needed and why. These does seem to be a void out there that needs to be filled.

Re: Good coil

I've checked some of the O/P's posts, and believe he is still 6 volts, but we can't be sure. "Habusasailor", can you give us some more information about your car? Specifically is it still 6 volts or...

Re: Good coil

Napa coils are pretty good. We are all assuming you are running a 6 volt system. If the car has been converted to 12 volts, I would expect to have trouble with an original type coil.

I needed a...

Re: 1940 Ford floor plates around column/pedals

After thinking about it, I believe I was right the first time. As I remember it, the commercial started with the dog barking, then "That's my dog Tige, he lives in a shoe, I'm Buster Brown, look for...

Re: Flathead V8 radiator

I'd be more worried about the "paying for it" part in this day and age.

Re: 1940 Ford floor plates around column/pedals

You have it right; I was a little mixed up. I was a real "Sky King" fan as well, but I listened on the radio; by the time he got on television, I was a little too old, and had discovered cars and...

Re: Starter on 8BA won't turn when HOT. What gives?

I bought a couple of dozen flathead starter bushings from Rock Auto a while ago for next to nothing. The probably still have a bunch left.

Re: 1940 Ford floor plates around column/pedals

Christ Coopman, I was watching The Buster Brown show when it was hosted by "Smilin' Ed O'Connell". (You young whippersnappers and your "Andy's Gang" show are interlopers.)

Re: Need for early condensers?

That's all well and good Mr. Seery, but I am not aware of any way to quantify it and make judgements on what is good and bad short of analyzing the deposition pattern on the points. The stuff "Bubba"...

Re: 1940 Ford floor plates around column/pedals

Kube, unless you were a child prodigy (which you probably were), I would put you as being born ca. '48-'50. The standard following question about a cowboy is "What was his horse's name?" I don't...

Re: 1940 Ford floor plates around column/pedals

I have to wonder how many on here know what you are referring to with that remark.

Re: Shoebox overdrive lock out lever

I see you have a '51 Victoria. They are in my opinion the best looking of all the "shoebox" Fords, despite the fact that they were a last minute "patched together" effort to compete with the new...

Re: Need for early condensers?

Murre,

This makes sense to me. In my "travels" I have been able to obtain a few larger "Trash Can" condensers. They are very similar to the regular Mallory units, but are about 30% larger and have...

Re: Shoebox overdrive lock out lever

As a neophyte lathe owner, I am going to try to make my own piece. It looks like a good "starter" project to me.
