Re: Pickup gears in early gearbox?

Those early cases are not deep enough to install the larger diameter 29 tooth cluster in the usual way. The trick is to install the main drive gear without the bearing. The bearing is installed...

Re: Wheels, would like opinions.

Back in the sixties we called the lug holes as belly buttons. The earlier wheels through '41 were innies, while the later wheels were outies. The formerly sought after 1941 only Lincoln wheel...

Re: Wide Friction Tape?

It was seeing the tape across the top edge of the dash that made me wonder if I was missing something. I have a Model A that squeaks loudly under the windshield and don't need another. Thanks: Fred A...

Wide Friction Tape?

Tearing down a '40 body, prepping for a media blasting. I'm finding friction tape used for anti-squeak in places like around top of dash, under the battery box, and probably others where it's been...

Re: v8-60 transmission help

Who is referring to the V8-60 passenger fork (74-7515)? The trans in question is the commercial and truck trans, not passenger, which uses a longer fork (73-7515) because the 60 commercial clutch...

Wrong Throwout Fork

The 73-7006 case uses a special fork with longer arms which prevents overthrow of the bearing, locking the clutch in a disengaged condition. The number on the correct fork starts with 73, not 48. Go...

Re: Dual side-post generator for '40, 12V?

Great trick, as I understand it 12V is series and the 6V is fields parallel. I went out to the shed and measured a pile of them. In the '40 measured 8.2. One out of a '56+ at 7.8 Ohm. The other old...

Dual side-post generator for '40, 12V?

The two brush generator in my '40 which I bought as a parts car is mated to a 12V regulator and had been "running when parked" 50 years ago. The electrics all are 12V on the rest of the car. Seems to...

Re: White crap in carb bowl - Pic

Re: Warning about c&g

All this about C&G made me check my notes and found a small gaff that moved them out of first place. I needed a couple of V8-60 water pump gaskets. They arrived in a generous size box. They could...

Re: Zephyr/Bendix Backing Plate Wear?

Tommy at Valley friction on Sherman Way looked at the wear and said to file the groove slightly. He also had some fresh small parts that completed the set. The usual counter man barely knows that...

Zephyr/Bendix Backing Plate Wear?

Re: '40 Deluxe Radiator Vents?

I went out to look to see if any part of the welting remained. Not! Other than dirtly and the starboard side a bit faded from excess sun on the south side of a carport. It all was removed years ago...

Re: '40 Deluxe Radiator Vents?

I put a lot of faith in the dashboard being original from the welting which was seldom replaced correctly by any trimmer. I have good late vents but was amused by the early production features and...

Reasons For Doubt?

Re: EAB valve lash

Seems to be more than a bit of confusion where the later versions also introduced valve rotators. I thought I was above all that until the inspection of the 59A in my '40 revealed an unexpected mix. ...
