yes, you could use the 39-41 backing plates as long as you used all the other parts [shoes, adjustable anchors, etc] of the same years

Re: 36 Starter to oilpan bracket - Opinions requested

I know for a fact that the English V8 Pilot oilpans have the starter bolts canted at a different angle than the Yankee oilpans. They also have a smaller spigot on the starter. To use a 'normal' V8...

Re: Some fun machine projects

Even a worn lathe is better than no lathe....any machine is only as good as the operator. My lathe is worn, it is however big enough to be able to easily spin V8 axle housings, I am currently making...

Re: Torque tube noise

I have seen on eBay, replacement 'safety pins for Ford torque tubes that have a built in retainer in the event the pin shears. Some of these kits also have a spring that goes over the front of the...

Re: Torque tube noise

A member on here a while back came up with the most excellent idea of fitting some shrink sleeve over the pin[s] to preclude pin migration outwards in the event it breaks.

Re: Excelsiors and early wires

I've offered this information previously....On my 35, I run radial tires on Kelsey Hayes wires....because the spokes protrude into the well, I must run tubes. I run 6.00 16 tractor tubes. These are...

Re: Removing a '34 Sedan windshield frame...

Re: 32 Ford Leaking Water Pump

Sorry! But I must ask- what good is changing the grease nipple going to achieve, other than eliminating the possibility of cracking the housing through excess hydraulic pressure? Water is obviously...

Re: Temp gauge

Sorry to inform you that the original temp gauges never lose the red colour of the liquid; the repops that were made in Argentina some time back do, however.

Re: install 41 motor.

Re: install 41 motor.

You'll want to run the 36 style fan; mounted on the generator. Depending on the crank pulley, you may need to remove an outer sheave in order to clear front crossmember. And use your existing exhaust...

Re: install 41 motor.

No spacers required for this swap! For bottom hoses, use 8BA bottom hoses. I 'think' Drake offered top hoses to suit 24 stud engine to 36 radiator a while back; possibly now unavailable, but as...

Re: Isky super 88 cam

Well, I run an 88 in my 35, have done for years. Only a little 221, this engine loves to rev. How it would run with your added cubes, I cannot say. Worked best with a 3.78 rear, a 3.54 didn't allow...

Re: engine steady rods ???

As long as they prevent any movement, I can't see what difference it makes as to which way they face.

Re: engine steady rods ???

In my opinion, there is something wrong with that pictured stay rod; to truely prevent the forward/aft movement, it needs a lock nut both sides of the 'Y' piece. As pictured, movement is still...
