Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

I'm surprised no one has mentioned using a pressure bleeder. If you can borrow or rent one, that is the best way in my opinon.

Re: Shackles? Can I build a set?

When I was in High school auto shop 60 years ago, making long shackles for our fords was a favorite project. Our teacher was a nice guy and didn't object.

Re: installing engine

Back in the day, we used to make guide pins by cutting the heads off of 4" bolts and screwing them into engine at 9 oclock and 3 oclock. It made the job a lot easier.

Re: Breaking free old frozen transmissions: Tricks?

I have always drained the grease and soaked them in diesel oil. Give it more time to soak, like a week or more.

Re: 59ab hard to turn over

Put all 5 pugs back in and see if it will run. if I'm reading this post right, 5 cylinders would be sucking air. I'm surprised it will run at all.

Re: 59ab hard to turn over

here is some wild guesses: The bendix drive is sticking in the flywheel, or the battery is weak . Give it a load test Most parts stores can do it.

Re: Compression tester

I've been told we ended up with mm spark plug sizes due to the influence of Robert Bosch' an early day electrical engineer and manufacturer, who was of German descent.

Re: Lathe with 3 Ford transmissions in Iowa

As for the holes in the brake drums, this would be no problem for the average machinist, just set it up concentric and drill the holes.

Re: Lathe with 3 Ford transmissions in Iowa

How many speeds ahead of the cone pulley? I figure 28. 3x3x3 equals 27, plus any 2 put in reverse would give you a very slow forward speed. Are there more combinations?

Re: Flatheads,nature,time and effort

I'm over 80 and would come and get them all if I were closer. I have yet to find engines in this condition that did not have some parts I could use.
