Re: 59AB bearings

I would check the clearances with plastigage and if that's ok you can use them or replace them if you are rebuilding the engine.

Re: Mail order dual exhaust systems

Try Waldrons exhaust. I bought a single exhaust for my 39 and they have dual systems for most fords. It did cost 65.00 for the shipping but I don't think it would be much cheaper at local muff shop.

Try it again and if it dies look down carb throat to see if you are getting fuel. This will narrow down problem.

Re: 1936 radiator petcock

I imagine you could solder in a 1/4 npt brass coupling which if you wanted turned down just enough to leave a small flange.

Re: Gasoline flow

If you pull your sending unit you can get a look inside the tank. You can pull the tank the way it is, Drake makes new ones. For the plug, if it is already buggered, try vise grips on it.

Re: Mercury rebuilt EAC longblock-whats it worth?

I would measure the stroke to verify it has a Merc crank in it which would make it more desirable.

Re: Rebuild Advice 8BA

I would do a cylinder leak down test to determine the lower compression in that one cylinder . This is something you or your mechanic can do to find the problem before taking anything apart.

Re: '41 won't crank when hot

When this happens I would the voltage at the starter terminal to make sure you are getting proper voltage. This will narrow it down.

Re: 36 Can't Stop The Oil Pan Drain Plug Drip
