Re: Info for ‘42 Super Deluxe Sedan

Among the best sources for parts, especially those that are hard to find are "Third Gen Automotive" (35fordtn) on this forum and "Southside Obsolete" (barnfind08), also on this forum.

Re: V8 clutch and pressure plate in stock model A

Welcome to the 21st Century.:mad:

All I can offer is that used genuine Ford parts are usually better than aftermarket; maybe obtain and disassemble a couple of used PP's?

Re: 1932 to 1936 Fan Belts

If you re-read the posts, it's not exactly what "Kube" said. It probably doesn't make much difference, but the span between the generator and water pump is shorter then between the crankshaft and...

Re: Trash Can Condenser price increase

Since these mount externally, they can be used with just about anything. Sometimes a little ingenuity may be required (see Post # 24 above). I have them on Mallory's (of course), old Ford...

Re: proper order of engine analysis

I would start with a compression test, since you seem to be able to handle that yourself. The ignition? Unless you have the tools and experience in working with these, it is best to send it out...

Re: 1949 ford flathead v8

I bought a very solid '48 Buick Super convertible out of Montana once. It had a power top, power windows, a power seat, and a lot of missing paint.:(

Re: Fiber timing gear

I've had 'em on 3 engines and never heard a "whine". As a matter of fact, I don't remember any different sounds at all. Maybe it's the Fenton's and steel packs.:rolleyes:

Re: What Are You Most Thankful For This Year ?

I have heard it said that if all of the people who claim to have had relatives on the Mayflower actually did, that ship would have had to have been the size of the Queen Mary.

Re: Latest question- clutch disk wobble

I at least would like to know which "well known V8 parts supplier" it was. It's nice to know who has sold out to Mammon these days.

There still are quality suppliers out there. We need to help...

Re: well water spots

This can be a real problem. In 1987, I bought a pretty nice '67 Corvette coupe that was completely covered with water spots. I tried everything I could think of to try to remove them, to no avail....

So true. I can't believe how many times someone has posted a desperate request for some part that I would think no longer exists.

Re: What's I got? 8ab Merc

If you want to get pedantic, it is '48 for trucks and '49 for cars to '53 in the USA and '54 in Canada.

It's up to 1987 in France, but it's not the same thing.

Re: 47 coupe shocks

I'd look a little more. The C10 shocks may fit, but they are for a vehicle that weighs at least 50% more than a '47 Ford. If you like a stiff ride, they may be OK, but there may be better choices.

Re: What's I got? 8ab Merc

Flathead Fords were not made by GM, so you can forget everything you think you know about date codes.

The only flathead engines that have explicit dates stamped on them are SOME late ('49-'53)...
