Re: Mechanical fuel pump

Has the new Edelbrock manifold have the fuel pump mounting flange at same height as the old intake? There is two heights depending on intake used, exactly 1" difference, which require the correct...

Re: Help: Reverse eye leaf spring problem 34 Ford

Looks to me as though they have cut the ends off and welded new ends on. Looks like a weld just inboard of the eyes in all your photos. Totally wrong!!

Re: F1 axle shafts

Although I'm not by any means an expert, on every diff I've ever pulled apart, all interior components are coated in axle lube, which precludes said components from rusting. A coat of glyptal...

Re: FH Valve Springs

Frank, Is this proposed Schneider 250F cam to go into your 37 block, and fitted into your 35 truck? With the heads modified to take 14 mm plugs? Or are you building another fire breathing monster?

Re: FH Valve Springs

Frank, Please do not take offence, but I think you're overthinking a perceived problem. Before you get all carried away, ask on here if anyone has actually destroyed the lobes on a flathead. You say...

Re: What year Harley?

I'd say, judging by what i can see of the front fender, that its a circa 1942 WLA. The military bikes had non skirted fenders to prevent mud building up on the battlefield.

Re: 37 aluminum intake stud replacement

Tubman, No, I just use Genuine vicegrips, [not imitation ones], and clamp them onto the stud really tight. This wrecks the stud; it'll be mightily deformed, but will get the offending stud out,...

Re: 37 aluminum intake stud replacement

By all means; if you can get them out by the double nut method, use that method. At least the removed studs may be fit for further service, unlike the visegrip method, which will bugger them...

Re: 37 aluminum intake stud replacement

Vise grips, as tight as you can applied to old stud[s]. Spray with your favourite penetrant. Using your judgement as to how much force to apply to visegips, apply torque back and forth to get stud...

Re: 37 to 48 Water Pumps Rebuild.

Did the pump you removed the shorter bush from have a ceramic seal fitted? If so, the oilite bush needs to be shortened accordingly

Re: Starting to work on my 68

Seeing as your vehicle is a truck, I wonder if you'd be better off fitting a later, more powerful engine?

Re: Starting to work on my 68

Frank, My current engine in my 35 is a 21 stud displacing 255 cu inches; 3 3/16 bore x 4" stroke. So your statement of not being able to bore to 3 3/16 is way wrong!! Actually had the block sonic...

Re: Starting to work on my 68

Oh Boy!! You're talking foreign to most guys on here. Most of them rubbish 21 stud engines. I, however, believe they are the best engines Ford produced.
You have a 37-38 block as evidenced by the...

Re: Scat vs Merc crank

A genuine Merc crank is far superior to a Chinese Scat crank. I have run both versions. The crap Scat I had went rusty just sitting on the wooden workbench, whereas I've got old Ford cranks kicking...

Re: 1935 fly wheel

Although they look similar, they are drilled differently for pressure plate. 34 still runs the model A style clutch, 1935 saw introduction of the regular Long style clutch assembly
