Re: Anyone with experiences working with Gocat speed shop?

If you go to see him, make sure everything you're doing is above board, that you're not threatening him in any manner and that you operate in a safe and legal manner and that you document any "deal"...

Re: Colorado Flathead Rebuilder

I'm with you Tubman - it is one thing to call a guy up, go see him and negotiate a "deal" to help with the loss of the money, but the minute you start strong-arming somebody, taking stuff off their...

Re: Anyone with experiences working with Gocat speed shop?

I'd go see him and let him know that you're going to collect your $10,000 - one way or another. I'd take it out in parts if I had too . . .

Re: Intake bolts THICK

Thanks a bunch Mike! I too would love them in stainless - be happy to spring for $50 as I don't need to watch them rust over time (even CAD plated stuff rusts - due to the wear that tools put on...

Re: Which Cam

Yes - you have enough cubic inches to make it work well. What compression ratio are you headed toward? Mill the heads and get .040 over the pistons - makes a big difference. If you're in a light...

Re: Help dimensions bolt 34 Ford rear radius rod to torque tube

It is the only bolt on the whole car that is that dimension. I recently built a late 32 - 34 rear for my 32 Cab -- knew I had a "spare" bolt like that from 40 years ago (when I tore down my 34 four...

I wish you guys all the best - and that you actually get a performance flathead in your cars. It may be the second one you have to pay for, but don't lose hope and if I can help any of your guys...

Re: rear axle nut torque

And if you need too . . . go BUY a bigger torque wrench - or borrow one. I have about a 36" Mac Tools torque wrench - bought it specifically so I could handle torque loads like this.

Re: Anyone with experiences working with Gocat speed shop?

Give him an ultimatum -- deliver in a month or go to court. He needs to be shutdown with the way he's going about business or he'll just take the next guys 10,000.

Re: Colorado Flathead Rebuilder

Hell - send it here to Ohio . . . can have Fowler Engines build it . . . and you'll be very happy with the results. Also, it won't cost you $10,000 to build one. PM me if interested.

Re: Drop Axle Installation

In addition, the stock steering arms are now higher - which may cause a drag link or tie-rod clearance issue. (the issue you talk about up above)

I've not built a 36, but one solution might be to...

Re: Drop Axle Installation

Good point - I forgot about the 'stretched' versions . . . kind of like a piece of carnival taffy. FWIW, I've never liked the stretched look - and the amount of stretch I see on some axles makes...

Re: Drop Axle Installation

I've had Okie Joe do my work for me. It is more than just heating and bending -- the axle needs to be magnafluxed and the correct camber set. Also, depending on the spindles and steering, you may...

Re: stromberg 97 metal fatigue?

What is worse is that somebody trusted JB Weld or something similar to not only fix the prior problem, but to also NOT LEAK and potentially cause a fire.

Now this is going to sound bad, but it is...

Re: valve question

Re: Which Cam

Well, the duration is the same for both 220 degrees at .050 -- the 77B only lifts about .325, while I believe the 248F lifts .350. When I sent to Schneider's site - they showed two different lift...

Re: 59A Flywheel Machining & Clutch refitting..

As almost all flywheels use a "shoulder bolt" - you probably have shoulder bolts where the shoulder section is too long. I would take the pressure plate back off and check the bolts and the holes...

Re: Distributor vacuum brake question

You want it to drag a bit - otherwise the timing can "flop around" a bit. I tighten it down until I just feel it start to drag.
