Re: Shipping engine

Another, related question. I just recently found Fastenal shipping and it sure beats standard truck shipping.

Are there any other low priced shippers for engine/transmission type items?

Re: Backfire

I love seeing toughs original invoices. They are a little piece of history.

I also collect tractors and bought my '55 Ford 850 (the larger of Fords 2 basic models) because of the original invoice...

Re: Lifting a 8ba engine

One mild steel, 5/16x18 bolt, has a yield strength of about 1300 lb and a tinsel strength of twice that. G forces increase the load (bouncing around) and torquing the bolt, uses up some of the...

Re: Rejuvinate script battery

I use 35 Ah, SLA battery's (sealed lead acid) on some of my vehicles. They are small and very powerful, for their size. You have to use a bolt and nut connection, rather than a post or, I'd have...

That's a great find, Norm!

Re: Rear main seal

My last year as a mechanic, was 1970, at that time, they made a puller, that was designed after a Chinese finger trap but, made of thin, braided wire. You use a small brass punch, to start the seal...

Re: 20 inch truck tires

Stu, thank you for the additional info. My 18's are definitely the RH-5*. They don't have a outer spit ring. I had thought that they were some kind of a drop center.

Again, thank you, I'll keep a...

Re: 20 inch truck tires

Thank you for the info on the R-5 wheels. I have a spare set of 4, 7.00-18's, with excellent tires. My '35 truck has 6.00-20 on the front and 6.50's on the rear, with what looks like standard spit...

Re: Original Price when new

I must correct myself! The price of gold was $35 per oz, in 1936.

That makes $480 worth 13.71 oz of gold and $20,700 at today's gold price.

Re: Original Price when new

That may be but, it doesn't change the fact, that it took 24 oz of gold, to buy a new Ford PU, in 1936.

Are you talking deck clearance or piston to head clearance?

Re: Generator output voltage 7.3v drops to 6.6V at battery this normal or not

I would run a 10 Ga wire, from the voltage regulator to the battery terminal bolt and see if the the voltage rises. If it does rise, it's the wire in the loom is bad.

Re: Cutting domes in 21 stud aluminum heads?

That's a good question. I have a similar situation but, my engine has to be bored so, I'll use flat tops for it.

First, put the heads on it w/o a gasket and no nuts or use a straight edge, to...

Re: Psi

This is a example of a 62 Standard Load (SL) tire and the amount of load load it can carry for the amount of inflated pressure. There is also LL (Light) & XL (Extra) rated tires.

Re: Psi

Tires can be complicated but, in general, 32 psi, will be safe in most cases, unless your car or truck, is pretty heavy. By that, I mean 5000+ lb.

Re: Who sells frame bolts that look like rivets

You could use carriage bolts and machine or grind the square, under the head, to fit the hole.

Re: The '37 Dually is finally coming together

As my first sentence said, I was asking about the bumpers, only.

I learned to drive in a '36 Ford PU, that my dad bought in late '56. That's what I was looking for when I bought my '35.

Re: The '37 Dually is finally coming together

I have a question about the bumpers.
My '35 didn't have one. I picked up a '37 for it.

I see no obvious differences from Tinkers, '35 & '36 pictures and Don's '37.

What, if any are the...
