Re: Help me identify these holes in my dash

Re: Question about clutch ball bracket/bushing

Here you go. Part # 7517 is actually the split bronze busing the fits around the ball on the bracket that's bolted to frame. The equalizer release shaft hollow end slides over that split bushing....

Re: Lifting a 8ba engine

You don't have to remove the intake. Use two longer bolts to replace stock intake bolts diagonally positioned front and rear. Even easier when you use an engine leveler. Carb plate works well too....

Re: 1939 Ford-Mercury door pillar

Not trying to be Debbie Downer but, before you decide to restore the car find out what value it will have when restored. Custom fabrication work can consume boat loads of dough.

Re: Running without a torque tube center bearing ?

John,
How would you desribe the "fit" of the OEM needle bearings as they ride on the solid drive shaft? Snug, lots of play, very little play.

Re: Replace Flathead with Y-Block?

Richard makes a good point. I recall in 1961 I had a 40 Ford with a 265 SBC and it ran great with zero problems. Didn't ruin the car at all. Just think of all the old Fords that were "ruined" with...

For sure, someone in the Ford old car world has one of those bearings sitting on a shelf.
