Re: Engine install

Anthony,

I'm sure I have one that I could ship to you as well. Let me know if you don't source one.

Re: 1934 ford grill NOS

Totally unrelated to any of this, but rockfla's comment reminds me of a bit the artist Tom Waits did.
At the end of his concerts, he does something called "Tom Talks" whether he sits at the piano...

Re: 1934 ford grill NOS

I would like to know this as well. I've never heard that before.

Now, if the primer part of the story is true, this makes sense on a few fronts. You said the box got wet with grille inside...

Re: Torque wrenches

Glad to hear HF is stepping up their game. Their tools do have a time and place and I own some of them.

It could be me and my bias, but I just don't trust critical measurements or specs to a...

Re: Emergency brake setup

Thanks, Kube. Any ideas on how to fix the long spring? Cut them?

Anyone know the proper/correct length of the spring?

Re: Emergency brake setup

Timely, I have the same question as Automotive Stud does. I can't seem to figure out the spring clip thing.

If possible, can someone post a pict of how it supposed to look? I would greatly...

Re: Torque wrenches

I bought a Precision Instruments PREC3FR250F 1/2 Inch Torque Wrench. Very happy with it. Made in the USA and comes with a case.

BTW: Precision Instruments makes Snap-On's torque wrenches.

Re: Block cleaning and magnaflux

Gary is a pro and his advice is spot on. After going through four blocks recently, only thing I would add to his suggestion is this:

Clean it the best you can at home first before doing any...

Re: 1934 ford grill NOS

Absolutely change your Ebay listing. Asking $20K and then being open to offers of $6K is a big difference. Give your listing a realistic number on the higher side so someone can work you down to...

Re: Grancor Heads

Dale,

Do you have experience with the Navarro hi-dome heads? When I bought my "regular" set from Barney in '00, he had these available at the time.

I was just married and didn't have two...

Re: Scammer?

I can vouch for Gary. He & I have done a few trades/deals.

Paying with PayPal friends and family is the common procedure now. Like he said, unless someone wants to add the fees to the price,...

Re: Canadian Weiand heads

Because they are/were called "cheater" heads. Meaning, they give you the same high compression as a Weiand finned head, but looks like a Canadian made Ford head to "fool" race inspectors when they...

You maybe right. My eyesight is getting really bad.

Re: In defense of 6 cylinders

I hear you and same here.

I love flathead V8's, but one day I will own a '35/'36 with one of those 427 aluminum SBC, 6 speed trans and a 9" rear. Total tire fryer sleeper.

Re: 8 volt battery in a 6 volt car?

Re: Big Boys Heads

Yes, these are rare. I seem to recall an issue with them cracking, so I'd get them checked out before throwing them on a motor. It would be cheap insurance.
