Re: Building a late 32 driveshaft

No one has mentioned that there were two flavors of '32 rears. The early was simply an elongated version of the Model A without the bearing for the end of the pinion. The torque tube flange where it...

Re: Hershey AACA Eastern Fall Meet - 2021.

With out of country visitors being locked out, I'm assuming it shouldn't be too hard to get a room for a night or two?

Re: Torque Tube to Differential Seal

As I recall, getting the torque tube off isn't that big a chore. You'll have to remove the speedometer turtle and find the clip that retains the drive gear to the drive shaft. Remove that clip, slide...

Re: 1932 Roadster Frame Rail Sag

Ouch!

People talk about getting it over a railroad track, chaining the high spot to the rail and then blocking on one side and jacking on the other. (I think that this was in reference to Model As...

Re: '32 rear transmission mount

I had picked up an A cowl and made it crappy copy of it out of plywood. With a "test fit" block and heads in the frame, I mounted my wooden cowl and cut it out where needed. I then made up some...

Re: '32 rear transmission mount

Here you go. Just enough slack in the mounts for it all to work out. (I do love that '53 Ford engine paint color!)

Re: Removing 1157 Light Bulb in Tailight

The reason you got the "faint glow" was because the shell of the lamp wasn't grounded. Current traveled through the tail light filament, then the brake light filament, across to the other side of the...

Re: The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

Last year, Covid was great for me. All of the “typical obligations” didn’t happen and I think I accomplished more than in the two or three years previous.

Re: At last! The long awaited first drive! Mart's 32 Ford Sedan hits the UK roads!

Mart: In the video, I see you close the hood top and then reach under it to some unseen device to fasten it down. Do you have a picture of said device? Thanks!

Re: '32 rear transmission mount

Motor mounts and firewall clearance were all worked out with the trans mount flat on the K member. The rear end was not in play at that time. There's enough fore and aft adjustment to handle this....

Re: '32 rear transmission mount
