Re: CMM Crank in earlier engines

Ron,

Re: Bring back auto mechanics class

Re: Bring back auto mechanics class

Some people here talk like taking shop classes have no value. They do teach both motor and cognitive skills, at the same time, in a enjoyable way. Some take the class as a easy way but, if the shop...

Re: Looking for exhaust port layout drawing

This is the Ford drawing. A little hard to read with this upload but, the center distance is 7.812 or 15.624, end to end. 1.437 or 2.874 on the flange holes, set at 30 deg.

Re: As Promised Another Brochure, Engine Exchange 1934

Thank you for that, Bill. I can't believe the condition of it.

Re: A 1934 Ford Columbia Brochure Found In A Ford Dealership

What about the Lincoln Zephyr? Was it dealer installed for them also?

I know that the OD transmission, replaced the 2 speed but, there was one year overlap. 1939 or 40, I think. Some people think...
