Re: Spring clamp torque value?

Fasteners should be tightened without any sort of lubricant unless specified. It will reduce the amount of torque required to reach X amount of bolt stretch, often in an unreliable manner.

Re: H&h

My father had them build him a SCoT blown engine with all of their reproduction goodies this spring/summer. They sent him a "it's done" video of (supposedly) the engine. I don't know how many "have...

Re: Wood For My 1934 Ford Project

I certainly hope that's not the case as I've been procrastinating on ordering some wood that I believe he's the only one that reproduces. :(

Re: OHV conversion

Yeah, the roofline on that Vicky was a real failure in execution.

Re: 1932 Ford Vicky

I think that $10k is an outlier for a Winterfront, even for a pristine one. The one on this car would have been nowhere near that much.

Re: 1932 Ford Vicky

Looks pretty solid to me. That fender is rough, but the rest doesn't look bad. You must be used to creampuffs.

Re: Flathead OHV conversions

I have an Ardun, but I've always been partial to the Adams-Moeller.

Re: Rubber fuel line failure

The pump he is using is not outputting enough pressure to cause an issue with the rubber line. It's fine in that respect.

I suspect he has a fuel incompatibility issue with the type of rubber...

Re: Did I fry my starter relay?

In this case, the batteries are wired in parallel and not in series as your original post seems to convey.

Re: Wheel stands

I use 4x4 and 2x4 cribbing because it's:

easy to procure or re-purpose
can be adjusted as high or low as needed in 1.5" and 3.5" increments
doesn't take up much storage space

Re: Oversized Brake Drums

I suspect you'll have a hard time finding any federal or state laws that prohibit drums from being turned to an ID greater than .060" oversize.

Laws will be written to prohibit exceeding the...

Re: Anyone still putting custom paint into aerosol cans

Re: Best way to fix this header

Personally, if the header's pipe is thin enough that it tore at the weld, I'd just replace it with a new header.

The pipe would be easy to weld back up with a MIG welder. It would be much more...

Re: 34 truck grill

The '32 pan is different from the '33/34 pan, but the outer profile may be the same where it fits into the grill shell. The '32 pan has a single crank hole. The '33/34 have two.

Re: Jack recall, chinese junk from Harbor Freight

Garbage is produced everywhere, including here in the USA. It all boils down
to the thoroughness of the engineering behind a part and the quality control processes after its been manufactured.

Re: Split Lock Washers On Main Bearing Caps Of Flathead Motor

Split lock washers are ineffective at functioning as "lock" washers. In fact, they can lead to premature loosening of the joint. They shouldn't be used anywhere critical.

Re: 34 repo grill shells

I suspect that the Ford assembly line was far less picky about exacting fitment in 1933 and 1934 than those who are restoring the cars today.
