Re: Manifold vacuum at idle... vs without...interesting observations

I put a Bubba mechanical chevy in a friends car a while back with a 8ba. It couldn't do a burn out, then it did.


There is always more then one way to skin a cat with more then one carb.

If this is an 8ba you always setup the initial timing of the dizzy without the vacuum connected.

Re: 37 Replacement seats

I'd rather have some lumpy correct seats then a couple 80s aerovan seats.



Post some pictures of what you are asking if you can.

Re: Holy Crap! Kindergarten kids stamped my block. What do I have here?

Isn't this stamped on the intake plane on the rear passenger side of the motor. I hope we have moved beyond this being a serial number. Although some serial codes might be helpful, only the builder...

Re: Holy Crap! Kindergarten kids stamped my block. What do I have here?

I might be a bit direct sometimes. I usually like a joke that has some setup or context. hahaha. I do apologize though if I offended you. 59a motors also have a cast. Just not a serial number.......

Re: Holy Crap! Kindergarten kids stamped my block. What do I have here?

soooo, a serial number from ford is an expiration date on a tank? Sorry I didn't get it. I apologize. I don't think this guy has thin skin. But I appreciate your response. Truly.

No idea what you are even talking about. I guess you answer a stupid question you get a stupid response.

Maybe read... The change was in 31. Just remember flat8s never had serial stamps.

Re: Holy Crap! Kindergarten kids stamped my block. What do I have here?

Just so you know ford never stamped flathead v8 blocks with serials, Flat 4s (model a) yes.

But it's a stamping. A lot of the stamps used there are not ford stamps. Well really none of the...

Re: Cut off HAMB again????

You could ask Ryan, something like this would require special attention. But we all remember the server change of 99 or the other one in 08. We still know who you are.

Re: Is it normal to build an engine test stand?

If a bear shat in the woods would someone post about it. Would the bear shat faster or would it be a post. I do not know.

Re: 38/39 hood side badges....

They are normally tac'ed. But I guess as long as there is not a slot of a screwdriver, that is a good fix with a poly stop.



Less you care, they are filled blue. But what ever works for...

Re: New to me 1936 5 window coupe

Taking off if it stutters, just pull the choke a bit. It'll level it out. It might be running a little lean or cold. pull the plugs and clean. Cool ride.

Re: Best paint for painting over rust

Ospho marine and paint. Ospho is basically Phosphoric acid. It'll convert and etch too. Is it better if you can't blast, maybe. POR is fine, just de-grease the area and maybe use some Ospho before...

You beat me too it. I was going to say that bailing wire was the duct tape of a time passed.

Re: Is it normal to build an engine test stand?

Well you would not be tubman without a little bit of disagreement. But you might agree breaking in an engine with load might be beneficial. NHRA run snap the motor once after a rebuild. But the real...

Re: Is it normal to build an engine test stand?

You don't want to break the engine in on the stand as Ol' Ron said. But to my thinking working out a few bugs on the stand with short runs a few times won't do to much.

Is it necessary. nope. But...
