Re: fan shroud 39

Shrouds like that are pretty much useless. you need to cover the entire radiator. That is not what I bought from Speedway. I believe they are made by Walker.

Re: fan shroud 39

I bought a fiberglass shroud from Speedway that fit the radiator nicely. Had to cut the hole for the fan. Really helped the cooling in traffic at slow speeds.

Re: Flathead Friday: Cam, Lifters and Valve Lash. Progress!

Might be something unique to the mushroom valves. All the 8BA intake valves I have are dished and they are magnetic. I'll have to dig out some mushroom valves and check them.

Re: Flathead Friday: Cam, Lifters and Valve Lash. Progress!

As noted, a magnet will verify. It won't be attracted to exhaust valves. I have seen after market dished valves suitable for exhaust, but not stock Ford.

Re: Flathead Friday: Cam, Lifters and Valve Lash. Progress!

I started watching your video Mart and I notice you have the valves in wrong. The dished valves are intakes. The exhaust are flat and they are a harder material.

Re: ID help with this engine

The only way to know what the bore is would be to open it and measure the bore. I don't think it is worth the hassle to do. With the 59 cast on the back it will fail the pencil test. I say run it and...

Re: ID help with this engine

It is a 46 - 48 block. The A head is from the 39 - 40 era,but you can easily switch it to a 59 head. The pulleys are interchangeable so should be just fine for your car.

Re: Need encouragement head replacement

If you have never had a problem removing heads that have studs, you are indeed very lucky. Recently I tried to disassemble a 59 AB engine and I had to make a puller that mounted in the spark plug...

Re: Exact Engine Year

Both Ford and Merc cranks in those years were 3 3/4. Pictures would help.

Re: CMM Crank in earlier engines

The front snout will need to be trimmed as well as the counterweights to clear the main webs.

Re: 1938 Ford Deluxe Distributor

There is no timing pointer on the early engines. I set the dwell and timing on the Sun machine. On the engine the timing can be varied up or down by loosening the bolt on the side and making an...

Re: What year and what is it worth?

That's what I thought also, but it turns they did have studs. I'm with the 3-5K guys. The midwest is far different than California (thank God).

I've never seen an EAC cam. I have cams marked EA and EAB. EAB had .307 lift and the EA had .330.

Re: Is this junk

Also depends what it will clean up at. Looks like it might take a good bit of grinding.

Re: 8cm cam grind

I dug through my cam charts and found that I did degree a couple 1CM cams and for all practical purposed they are identical to the 8CM.
