Re: GPS and cell phone on a 6 volt system

Gene,

I ran the center tap wire, the positive, to the dash board because my truck is positive ground. I used the wire coming from the outer shell of the power port to the ignition switch. ...

Front clip, 1967 Ford full size car

I have a front clip for a 1967 full sized Ford car. It's in pretty decent shape. The grill and headlight surrounds are nice. The bottom rear on the driver's fender is rusted out and would need to be...

Model Ts to War

I just saw a very interesting show on Public TV about WW1 and Model Ts. I did a search and didn't find any posts about it. It's been around a while but this is the first time I saw it. I have never...

GPS and cell phone on a 6 volt system

Before I start this post I want to acknowledge I found most of this information on the Model A board on the Ford Barn site and the HAMB.

I recently made a 1600 mile round trip in my stock '49...

1 ton and up truck wheels

I have a set of 7 19.5" five hole truck rims from a RV. These have the same 5 bolt pattern as early '40s to mid '50s bigger Ford trucks, F-4 through F-6. The bolt pattern is also the same for the...

Re: Cleaning threaded block holes

I just ran the new bolts through a couple of the holes and there is very little noticeable wiggle in the bolts so I'm hoping with a little sealer the bolts will seal up. This engine is going to be...

Re: Cleaning threaded block holes

OK, what are you talking about? I also didn't have a broken head "stud", my engine had a broken "bolt". I didn't tap stud holes, I taped bolt holes. From reading the above posts I can see there is a...

Re: Cleaning threaded block holes

Fortunately, the engine I have has bolts so have to worrying having them to set up straight.

All I really want to do with this engine is prove that it runs. I want to sell it so I would assume...

Re: Cleaning threaded block holes

Too late, I already ran the tap through. I only had one hole that gave me a lot of trouble and that's one I broke the bolt in. I had to drill and retap that hole. The rest the tape ran through...

Cleaning threaded block holes

This subject was raised on the FTE site. Is it a bad thing to do clean out the threaded head bolts holes in a flathead block with a regular tap?

I hope not, that is what I just did with the...

Re: Cracked EAB head, what to do.

I'd be prepared to pull the heads. I personally wouldn't pay much for an engine if I couldn't hear it run or at least hear it spin over to make sure there weren't any funny clunks or other funny...

Re: Cracked EAB head, what to do.

I haven't decided yet. A few years back I had a truck with a stuck engine and I was just about to cut it up and haul it away to the scrap yard. I had the torch out in the parking lot and I had a...

Re: Cracked EAB head, what to do.

Good points from all. I'll just get it running. I just figured some one interested would want to see that it doesn't leak any where. I figured if I sealed the head if there were other leaks they...

Re: Cracked EAB head, what to do.

I don't want to stick too much into this engine. I bought it along with another flattie that came with a beat up '49 panel truck I parted out. I just know I can get more for it if it runs. I've...

Cracked EAB head, what to do.

I searched the forum and didn't find anything that dealt with type of crack in a head. The crack is on the outside of the head. I found this engine in an old garage behind a truck I bought. When we...

Re: Stuck/unstuck flat head

It turns over fine, it just didn't turn over when the heads were installed.

Another question, are there any differences between the EAB heads and the heads from a truck engine, 8HT(?)?. I'll...

Re: Stuck/unstuck flat head

I didn't notice any unusual marks on the heads and the pistons look good other than having some carbon build up.
