Re: Thumbs up for Third Gen Auto

Probably just a shipping container that hit the sea. Yikes. Good story.

Re: Busted Axle

Well if he left the axle key out all would be good too. Right? You could also do the the same thing installing the axle key wrong.

Re: Busted Axle

drolston (https://www.fordbarn.com/forum/member.php?u=40322) was the drum torqued correctly? I didn't see that you mentioned it wasn't. Tom is a wizard of good things.

Re: I need a V8 in my life

My mistake, in haste. But I could probably say I meant 2 on each side. hahaha. Guess I need to re-read things here. Like the zephyrs, almost bought one. Probably a timeout. Let the agreement comments...

Re: Accepting cash for car sale

That's called "what if-ism". Maybe the newb has a brain and reads further. Certainly a lot more information is added.

Re: So Which Flathead Do I Have?

I'd leave a little meat on the bone. As a driver. We all are not making drag records. But i get what you are putting down. With a good re-builder you could do a 4.25 scat crank too.

Re: So Which Flathead Do I Have?

You could take two identical blocks. Same heads. One is bored 40 over. The other is 120 over. The 40 over has a 4" crank and the 120 doesn't. Which one would you take?

Re: So Which Flathead Do I Have?

If you put truck 8rt heads on a merc, you wouldn't do much on a merc car motor, but make it slower. Merc's had a 4" crank. So putting merc heads on a regular 3 3/4 stroke isn't going to do much or...

Re: Flathead won't idle

As tubman says. You don't know anything about the motor. Get it running on one carb and add.

Re: So Which Flathead Do I Have?

Maybe you should make one. It would sell well. Well maybe not make you rich. But it would be interesting. Maybe just a pdf to be added by a few that can be printed. Printed by me but certainly not...

Re: So Which Flathead Do I Have?

I agree they mean something. Like parts numbers. Henry was too cheap to include them for the fun of it. They are part of the cast, not stamped in later. Probably like the 59a casting. Nothing to tell...

Re: So Which Flathead Do I Have?

Slow down dude. It's okay. Don't take anything personal.

What would you like to know? Casting peripheral engine parts numbers?


On a 1970's bmw there was a window/hole that looked down off...

Re: 1941-1948 Ford ignition Resistor & (fuse)Breaker Assembly

Maybe why I would use a 12-2 awg wire on a 20 amp circuit.

Re: 1941-1948 Ford ignition Resistor & (fuse)Breaker Assembly

You mean I can't put in my house a 14-2 wire on 20amps breaker? :) Well at least the old 6 volt wiring it larger then the 12 volt stuff. I'm agreeing with you if your wondering.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris, Can I still add my opinion on the wiring choices. It's usually one of the first thing I do to an old ford outside of the radiator (if I'm lucky). Go with an original looking wire harness or...

Re: What does this engine stamp mean?

To add the rest of the ad to Bobs C helpful image. It's from the model A restorer magazine. This set pictured doesn't include the arrow dash or the B or C (canada).

Re: What does this engine stamp mean?

Star stamps are not impossible to make or get. Lots of places make them now also and the ford correct stamps. It's not special. But they wouldn't have been used on the motor after 31 at the ford...

Re: What does this engine stamp mean?

Stamp font is "okay". At least the star is good. The stamps should be about a 1/4" high. Funny thing I clicked on the picture and made it big.

None of the stamping on the motor really matters...

Geez, you can't let it go can you! hahaha. You were going to write this off and move on to the next post previously. I don't care if you think I should pound sand.

Glad you slowed down and talked...
