Re: Help! 59ab oil pan fitment

I removed the baffle from a 59A pan when I fit the 8RT pump and pickup. It also required a slight heat-and-bend of the pickup tube because the screen was touching the bottom of the pan.

Re: Sacrificial Anode

I put a sacrificial anode from the Boatzincs place (like John in Illinois linked) into my flathead about 10 years ago. Last year I checked it and it didn't have any corrosion or erosion on it. It...

Re: Scraping noise when turning

Can you fit your head under there and look around? See if you can find scraped paint on a suspension part, or the backside of the wheel.

Re: supplier of 1933-34 Ford Windshield Rubber

I've got 14 years on a Dennis Carpenter seal in my 32 sedan. Still looks good. I had first tried a Vintique but the glued corners broke before I could even get the thing stretched all the way...

Re: 1934 U joint lube

Should be a zerk on the clamshell. It will mostly fill the cavity between the clamshell and the torquetube bell, but some will eventually make it's way to the front edge of the bell, then between...

Re: Dizzy days

He's just making sure you keep him on staff to use them up on rebuilds. Do you guys do a trade-in deal, or restore my distributor?

Re: Rare Deuce parts thread

Here's some pics. This car had the red repaint in the 50's, but hadn't been touched since then. We turned it into a hot rod in 2006. The only "damage" done was the drilling of 13 holes and some...

Re: Offset piston in a 59 AB

Re: Mercury Block - Is it Too Far Gone?

To the OP, I'd think if a guy really wanted to he could cut, chip, dissolve all the crud and internal parts out of this block in prep for lots of crack testing and probable sleeves. But, the killer...

Re: Rare Deuce parts thread

I can't post more pics of my sedan. It's a hot rod. You'd all get mad at me.

I can tell you a little about it's "earliness" though. It's a 50,000 serial number car produced in Des Moines Iowa. ...

Re: Cornhead grease in steering

Re: 32 windshield glass install

Re: 32 Model B Cabriolet steering adjustment

They aren't all just gaskets. Some are shims. Very important to follow the directions for proper adjustment.

I'd also recommend using a 50 Ford F-1 sector seal. Easy to have a machinist do a...

Re: 32 windshield glass install

We just installed a new glass in a 32 5-window windshield frame. I used six strips of setting tape positioned around the frame to keep the glass from contacting the frame. But the sealing was done...

Re: Question: 1940 Ford Radiators.

Even with a new Walker radiator I only use a 7 lb cap on my flathead. If I had an original radiator I'd probably stay at 4lbs. The neck will need to be modified/replaced to accommodate the pressure...

Re: 33 ford wheels with wrong sized tires

Remove the air valve and insert the tube from a can of spray foam. Squeeze til there's no more. The tires won't fall off the rim now. And you'll never have to worry about a flat again.

As said above, not even close. Only similarity is they both have two hinges and a handle.

Re: Distributor question

Give your car a test drive about 25 MPH in second gear, then stomp on it. If you don't hear a ping, you can probably adjust the screw out a half turn. Give it another try, then again, until you get...
