Re: ..and now I feel guilty!

Vincent. You mentioned filling your steering box with grease, not a good idea. If not using the proper gear lube, a good grease to use would be John Deere corn head grease., as it does not cake up...

Re: 39 trans

When I was a teenager I had a 39 ford coupe powered by a 283, all stock running gear otherwise. One night I left the cluster gear in the street after a hard launch but managed to drive home in 3rd....

Re: 1934 ford coupe Rear end to high

Don't reroll the eyes, just disassemble the spring and re- arch the main leaf cold on a press. I've done this with success although it does take a while

Re: 1932 Ford 4 cylinder engine tins question

In all the original 32's I've seen I can't remember seeing those on any cars, so they must be pretty rare. What were they designed to do and did they work as designed?

Re: '41 won't crank when hot

If the starter is still in the car and you experience this again, try rapping on the starter with something and see if it starts. If it does it would indicate worn bushings, binding the rotor as...

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

Just a thought, how tight is the hub and pulley onto the crank? with the added load of the blower and if it's not a tight enough fit it might cause some wobbling and loosening of the bolt that holds...

Re: oil filter restriction orifice

What I said was you should leave it as originally designed, restrictor in the inlet side. The oil does drain out of the filter canister, in my beehive the oil is almost all drained when sitting,...

Re: oil filter restriction orifice

Think about when you first fire up, untill your oil filter has filled completely you're loosing oil pressure in the engine during that time. I believe I would leave the restrictor in line as designed

Re: Mart's Update: 1932 Ford Sedan Project Pt4. Front suspension build. Plus stuff.

Enjoyed the video Mart, keep them coming. On the installation of reversed eye springs, I used to always disassemble the spring, which made it much easier to handle. Not saying it is the right way,...

Re: Rough measurement to start with "toe" on a '32 front end

When you set up toe in/toe out it should be done with the wheels on the ground. As Rotowrench states axles flex. Just the weight of the car will move your setting considerably. I measure my toe...

Re: power steering on flathead

Check with CPP, classic performance products. They have a nice conventional style power steering box and have pumps that can be adapted for the ford.
