Re: 1940 merc & ford x member replace

When it comes to Hot Rods, A Ford in a Ford is not traditional, unless it's a flathead.

Re: Winfield su1a

Winfield's R1 cam was always advertised as a "3/4 Race" cam.
Much has been lost in translation over The last 50 years.

Re: Winfield su1a

I ran a Winfield R1 in a 59A 60 years ago.
The idle was smooth as the stock cam.
A real Winfield, not a copy. A stock 8CM or EAB cam would probably perform better.

Re: Coating the armature . . .

Glyptol, made by GE, used in the industry.
Buy at your local electrical supply store.

Re: Head skimming: Any tips?

Anything can be bought.
Some folks enjoy being creative and learning.

Re: Help with an 8BA head.

I believe he has an EAB head, not as common as an 8BA head.
Any way, what he has is an easy fix.

Re: 1946-1948 Mercury Dash Boards

Yes this is correct.
Different color plastic for different years. '42 & maybe '46 being tan plastic, '48's that I've seen have been a "silver grey"

Re: 1946-1948 Mercury Dash Boards

All '42-'48 Merc's were deluxe, with plastic parts.
No standards, the questionable parts are aftermarket.

Re: 1946-1948 Mercury Dash Boards

The red Mercury dash is using aftermarket chrome pieces to replace original rotten plastic pieces.

Re: What years are these hydraulic backing plates???

I say '39 thru '42.
If in doubt, go to the book.

Re: sealed bearing fan hub

Why re invent the wheel ?
The stock 1949 V8 passenger car fan has a sealed bearing, four blade fan & a wide belt pulley.
They inter change with the 59A stuff, plus they are available.

Re: What color was the 1946 Mercury engine.

To answer the original question.
'42 thru '48 Mercury engines were dark blue.
'46 thru early '49 Ford passenger car engines were dark blue.
Strange how these posts go sideways.

Re: 36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

IMO a stock '29 A radiator will not cool a V8 flathead motor in hot weather. No band-aids will fix the problem.
A Walker radiator would fix it.

Re: Exhaust Manifold Question

What is there to say ?
I would suggest using the manifolds that fit the chassis.

Re: Banjo hub bearing seat cracked

That is a sheet metal piece that is replaceable.
If your hub & drum is good, buy a junk hub just for the piece.
I have seen that piece on E-bay in the past.

Re: Are these those special U joint washers?

I agree.

I'm familiar with them from the electrical industry.
Swichgear, buss & terminations are a major consumer of belleville washers.

Re: Are these those special U joint washers?

I don't think they are a spring. I believe they are a "bellvill" washer.
You can "Google" it.

Edit: belleville, sorry
