Re: Bendix replacement Question - 1935 Ford

Definitely stick with the original bendix. There are plenty of them around. I refuse to start grinding on original stuff to accommodate so called new junk.

Re: Original 32 lifters with 8BA vlaves

This has been asked by many, including me. I guess the answer lies with the fact nobody has stepped forward to say they have done it and had any failure. For what it's worth.

Re: Neoprene Seal for front of crankshaft

Ditto! I've never had a front leaking rope seal on any V8, or my "A". Consequently, I have never felt the need to change.

Question for California Plate Restorers

I'm planning on restoring a Calif license plate, and need information on the letter/numbers color. Black plates with the yellow/Orange characters. What did you use to get to the correct color?...

Re: Speedometer error

It's amazing how different people's standards are. I can't imagine careing about 3mph. My curiosity is aroused though, as to what the adjustment mechanism is. I restored mine, but cant remember any...

Re: Water Pump Removal

That's a job best done when the head is off, but that convenience exists rarely. Try. A good penetrating oil soak overnight. Then try a pair of vice grips. Pray they come out without breaking. Heat...

Re: '29 roadster pickup sill plates

I found them to be so far from correct, i used my rusted originals after some repair. The repos are on the shelf.

Re: Head gasket indentations pics

That's not at all a problem. I wouldn't have even given it a thought. You just got a free gasket, compliments of Sac Vint Ford.

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

The first one should be easy, as you can see down the other hole for guidance. Feel your way around with the second one, and you can tap the installed one to get your orientation for the second. You...

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

From everything Terry has explained, if you want babbit bearings, your going to have to get that done as a custom project, as he has planed for all insert bearings. ( not included )

Re: New Tire Recommendation

Do us all a favor, and tell us what choice you made, whatever it is. Just curious.

Re: New Tire Recommendation

Basically, you lay a large garbage bag over the wheel, as it lays on a carpet floor. The slippery nature of the bag allows you to slip the tire over the rim by hand with no tools.

Re: New Tire Recommendation

Since you did not wear out your existing tires after all those years, durability is not as important. If your not concerned about judging, I would suggest a very reasonable choice. The Lucas tires...

Re: 28/29 Brake Light Switch

On the 28/29 switch, it is easy to repair. On some, the spring when fully compressed, if short, can pull the overall shaft out of the rear of the unit rendering it brake lights on full time. I put...

Re: Pressure test plate

To me, it makes little sense to go through the task of opening the bore, without opening the entire valve and combustion area. Doing so makes a good case for having it at least 1/2" thick steel.
