Re: Winfield su1a

Pete

Not to stray too far off topic, but does the #4 grind need radius lifters like the 404?

Re: Winfield su1a

I'm so sad to hear this. Winfield is held in such high regard. I wish the cam would have preformed better.

Re: New Rebuild Overheating

Re: New Rebuild Overheating

Correct on hot tanking.
Scraping, prodding, poking at all the crud is the first.

Then more scraping, prodding, and poking to get any left over bits.
Tanking is the final...

Re: syncro hub position for second

**Edit: I should have read all of Dale's post. As usual, he's spot on and covers my comments.

I am no expert, but after having many chats with MacVP, I also think the backlash setting of the...

Re: 6 volt Generator in 12 volt system

I just learned a trick on how to make a 12V generator using the case of a mid-50's-'60's GM generator, Ford armature and end caps. It's AC Delco part # 334-1001

Rebuilt GM generator can be had...

Re: Help with "Full Race" cam ID

I would get that 425 cleaned up before you decide to use it. It looks pretty grungy and rusty.

Re: Reamers, what are they for?

Correct. Brake hones have very little pressure and tiny stones. Craftsman/Sears still offers these very cheaply.

Re: Reamers, what are they for?

Hey Rockfla,

I apologize if it seemed like I coming at you. Please don't take it that way. I was just trying to help get to the bottom of what they could be for.

Re: Reamers, what are they for?

I doubt they are for that. King pins are .814" and they are larger than perch pins.

Re: Electrical motor to produce vacuum...is there such thing?

Later flatheads ('51-'53 I think) had a fuel pump with a vacuum pump on the bottom. Would be a simple swap.

Re: Help with "Full Race" cam ID

Kind of, but maybe not be totally true. Duration is the next measurement you need to figure out. I had a Weber cam at one time that had something like .350" lift with almost 290 degrees of...

Re: 1932 Ford "Reproduction" Grill Shell History

It's a shame Vintique just doesn't give a poop about quality. Their first run of stock style shells (while thinner gauge metal) were really nice. Sadly, they didn't not change the die and they got...

JWL has done 4-5 sets for me. It's been a while so I don't know if he is still doing them.

Re: Cornhead grease and steering gear oil.

I have both Corn Head and "OO" liquid grease from Tractor Supply. Debating which one to use.
