Re: Any tired and true method or suggestions

Kiwi's experience / method is spot on. A comment about vinegar... the stuff I bought came from Costco, in gallon jugs. (inexpensive). It is labelled 5% acidity. It very dilute, as bought. (I have the...

Re: Machine later gears for 1934 axle

As Sheldon is aware, I did this same job in 08, 10-spline 3.78 from a 37 Ford, into a 34 banjo. My experience was the same as his. At that time the guy that did the crankshaft grinding at Johnson...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Regarding glass... And, I'm hoping David will comment... On my 34, which I assume might be similar, I was not up to speed on 'laminated' safety glass, versus tempered safety glass. My local glass...

Re: 12v battery on 6v system?

In response to previous posts... whatever !
In response to your proposed idea, I like it. I've run my 47 for years that way, with only positive results.
Rumbleseat Paul posted his way to do this,...

Re: Thread size for 36 water pump temperature sensor?

I think that what is being pointed out in this thread, there's more than one type of water pump out there. Brian is correct. And, also some aftermarket pumps need that 'adapter' which has the seat in...

Re: Sleeved 59AB Questions

There you have it.... the 59L on the bellhousing is what identifies. The 'AB' on the heads is not helpful, with regard to identifying the block. Good for you (IMO). Rumbleseat (Paul) was a fan of the...

Re: Sleeved 59AB Questions

Back to post 16.... Is there a '59' cast on top of the bellhousing. This discussion makes me think 'no'.

Re: 39 pedals in a 36 frame

Yeah... When I read all the stuff these guys are discussing, seems to me I'd consider taking the easy way out... keep stock pedals, and look carefully at the way Richard does it. 'Course, I'm...

Re: 32 a400

Interesting.... The auction site says bid to 80.1 and not sold and reserve not met. 'Course that doesn't really mean anything - could be sold outside of the auction.

Re: Opinion on a 36LB motor

Yes, I am aware of that. And that is what my 36 LB has. But, I was told that was a Canadian deal, and my engine is Canadian. Does that hold true for USA engines? I was told 'no'. Please educate me....

Re: Opinion on a 36LB motor

Well, yes, sort of, if it was a Canadian built engine. Would you trust that, for all 36 engines? And, if you are referring to the 'stamp', that's not reliable, either.
Obviously, my opinion.

Re: Any demand for 3 3/4 8BA cranks

I've always thought I was the cheap one. But, case in point, I bought a Merc Crank from Walt Dupont (right coast), and he shipped it to me (left coast). 'Course that was a few years ago. So, my take...

Re: Any demand for 3 3/4 8BA cranks

My local flathead machine shop/rebuilder has offered these for free. 'Course, this was at least five years ago.

Re: Aussie Flathead Piston Repair

Great story, Vincent. And, thank you Sheldon for posting. Lots of those Barney Navarro stories around. I think Burt Monroe (fastest Indian) used similar methods. I'm with Mart... an approved fix....

Re: 34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

My take on sockets.... inexpensive, throw-away items. I'd be trying one, even if 'Twan' or that other place. Not much to lose. I have a small collection of ground-off sockets, or modified in other...

Re: 34 Pickup Brake Adjust Screw Frozen

I've tried a couple of ways of doing the 'heating thing'. And, I recommend Vic's way. I learned a long time ago, from a fellow that restores horseless carriage era cars (pre 15) that the heat and...

Re: I'm going to try to repair this fender

Some fenders that I have worked, have had a factory 'wire'. I wonder if you and Lawson are talking the same thing. No matter, I'd put whatever I needed in the bead, while working on it. And, remove...

Re: 8BA block cracked

Worth a try at H&H. It's my understanding that H&H bought all of the engines from Bernie Long's estate sale, perhaps 75 (?), and they ought to have a decent block. 'Course, like Hemi posted, don't...

Re: Notching cylinder for 4 merc crank in a 221

IMO, Marts approach makes more sense than trying to duplicate whatever someone else has done, and from a picture or sketch, no less. Dummy it up, and determine what is needed. Just saying...

Re: 1949 Merc 8CM engine

I've been working on a stuck engine... two pistons stuck. First, I tried soaking with things like Kroil, PB blaster, etc, starting last July. No success with that. So, I resorted to the barbeque...

Re: Crusty Master Cylinder - Rebuild or Buy New?

The majority here (I predict) will say 'new'. For me, I re-kit the old ones, if the bore is acceptable. I've done three 'crusty' ones in the last several months, with no problems. I'm not into...

Re: Balist like this - who has?
