I'm not totally sure what you are looking for, but don't all of the pickup/truck parts suppliers have bed kits? LMC is an example.

Re: Adventures in gas tank restoration. '36

If you have the original 36 tank can you use it as a template and to rob parts off of?

Re: 8BA into a 1934 Ford

I happen to know some of the folks that make parts for Speedway, US made and the best quality there is. They also carry cheap import parts, just like just about everyone else. But you can't make a...

Re: 8BA into a 1934 Ford

Re: 8BA into a 1934 Ford

The engine mounts brackets (and of course the mounting points on the crossmember) were a different spacing on the 33-34 versis the later engines. The mounting height is likewise different.

Re: options for electronic ignition conversion on my '41

I thought the Bosch blue coil was 3.0 ohms? OK, think I may have misread your post!! Your saying 1.5 ohm primary winding resistance + 1.5 ohm built in additional resistance. Technically there is...

Re: 8BA into a 1934 Ford

Not entirely true, the blocks are the same length (except for the bellhousing), it is the front bolt-ons that increase the 8ba length. These can be changed to the 59a or truck parts. No modifications...

If you're looking for cracks it is best to pressure test the block, mag doesn't get everything.

Re: Distributors

It depends on the advance curve, at 600 rpm it may be starting to advance. A question Bubba may be able to answer.

Re: 1949 ford f1 front brake drums

Yes, they are what I use. The difference is they are more squared off vs the more dished shape of f1 drums. This leaves about a 1/2 inch or so of extra drum (the drum brake surface is wider than the...
