Right hand output shaft removal

I really should have looked into this when it was more convenient, but I just sheared the keyway on my passenger side output shaft. Is there any way of removing the shaft without disassembling the...

59ab spark plug wire tubes

Looking for a decent set of 59ab spark plug wire routing tubes.
Rusty and lightly dented is fine, but a complete basket case will be avoided.

Otherwise if anyone can take some detailed pictures...

Early ford store of San Dimas.

Re: Recurring Sudden Oil pressure drop

I wouldn't mind having another guage in my tool collection so I'll definitely start there. Agreed in the cheap check, however in agreement with Ronnie, I doubt that would be the issue...

Re: Flathead repair

I did hear a story of a guy building an engine. Got everything tuned up just right and it would cut out in a minute or so. Tore everything down 3 or 4 times to find an issue and nothing appeared. ...

Recurring Sudden Oil pressure drop

The oil pressure starts around 10-15 for about 30 minutes of driving every time I start, however if I ever pick up passed 50mph the pressure drops to zero. My gut says something is in the pan and...

Re: Starter heat soak

The splash pan is an interesting idea, don't think I wasn't too go that far for the solution.

And I get what you mean about not heating enough. The radiator was damaged at some point by the fan...

Re: Starter heat soak

The truck is taking a break today so it will be a while for the photos, but I'd say it's about 1 1/2 in. away from the starter.

Fabrication is possible, but won't be pretty. Hoping for something...

Starter heat soak

This is probably a worn out topic, but I can't seem to find much in the archives (I could just be ignorant/ lazy/ both) only one I could find is relating to the starter wrap.

Was there any heat...

Re: '37 Model 77 under bed wood risers

That is perfect. Thank you. As for bolted I should have said "between the bed and frame with the long U bolts."

Re: Orange/LA county recommendation for Diff. Rebuild

There it's a little play in and out of the axle with the drive shaft. Maybe just a 16th of an inch, but it otherwise seems sound. No discoloration or eccentric wobble. I'll have someone turn the...

Re: Orange/LA county recommendation for Diff. Rebuild

Never mind the newer hubs, I found originals to match with the drums attached. Anything else that would be standard to replace I might overlook?

Re: Orange/LA county recommendation for Diff. Rebuild

The key was bent like a j and sheared at the end as well. My guess is I ran it too long without checking (600 miles?) Since purchase and the last guy left a little wobble on the shaft. I may have...
