Re: Quality parts

We still have a supply of NORS (made in the USA) ignition points for the 1957-72 Ford V8 engines. They’re probably out there from others as well who sell through common auction sites. The part number...

Re: Help! fan hub bearing assembly identification

It’s most likely to be from a 1953 truck flathead V8.....one year only.

Re: Clutch Chattering Bad In Low/Reverse

Re: Fuel pump stand stripped threads

We’ve repaired a few with the helicoil method.....should work fine for you. Before you invest in the thread repair, check the base for flatness. They’re often warped and rough.

Re: oil bath fan hub

The shaft is heat treated and pretty darn hard. Usually the part that wears is the spindle bearing (21A-8626) which we reproduced. This should snug up the fit for you. We also stock the two paper...

Re: 35 Transmission - Getting locked out of Gear

You asked so I’ll reply. Your shifter tower has the crummy 32-33 type forks along with the pressed steel centering bracket. I can’t see the fork slots but I’ll bet they’re quite worn. The half round...

Re: Republic cluster gear

Really depends on what gearbox you are using. Either shaft will fit into the cluster gear you have. If this cluster gear was going into a 32-48 type case (with the large round bell at the front) you...

Re: fly wheel ring gear

We’ve got them as well. Be sure you orient the bevel on the gear teeth correctly before you drop the gear down onto the flywheel.

Re: Oddball transmission 73-7006-1 60 h.p.

Ford made those transmissions for the 1937-39 Commercial vehicles with the V8-60 engine. It’s basically a unique case that fits to the 60hp motor but contains the 85hp gears. The particular gear set...

Re: 35 Transmission - Getting locked out of Gear

Your shifter lever looks good as far as wear goes, and the little tweak bend at the very bottom is normal and correct.

Perhaps you could take a picture or two of the underside of the shifter...

Re: Republic cluster gear

K-356-11 is equivalent to the Ford B4A-7113A cluster gear. This was the 1954 replacement for the 1A-7113 gear and they are interchangeable. The 1A cluster had 27-23-17-13 teeth whereas the B4A gear...

Re: Metal tube that hangs down from the fuel pump breather

Re: 59L, 2 hole timing cover bolts

This happens to be the same bolt that Ford used on all the top loader trans shifter housings. Just grab some of those, clean them up and use them for the timing cover.

Unless you’re fitting a Mercury 4” crankshaft to this motor, the regular 8BA pistons are what you want for your engine. As stated already, we stock the Egge brand. We’ve got the matching ring sets on...
