Re: 1942 Mercury 29A rear main seal- surprise surprise!

Given the crankshaft you have in it, there isn't much more you can do. When I put later crankshafts in these engines (like 49-53 Merc cranks), I put the later 59AB type rear-main seal in as well.

Re: Rear Axle Shock Mounts

Yo BURSONAW - thanks for sharing and you're giving me some ideas on my 32-34 situation. Once I get back to Ohio, I will be "testing" out some concepts and reporting back.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

I'd probably made a "side mount" plate - picking up at least 4 manifold bolt holes. It would be made of 1/4" minimum steel and would go across the whole manifold area - leaving room to get to the...

Re: Rear Axle Shock Mounts

Hey Guys: I think it is important to share as much information as possible about which rears (years) these are designed for, with which style of radius rods, etc.. Most of the ones I've seen are...

Re: Rear Axle Shock Mounts

Just so you guys know - it is important to consider which banjo rear you're going to put them on. I didn't use my brain and ordered two sets (thinking I'd run them on late 32-34 rears). They're...

Re: The 1BA block Mystery What's the Story ?

Hey Ronnie - I'm out of town for a few weeks, when I get back I'll check a few 49-53 blocks that I have and see if any are 1BA. I don't know the details on the later blocks - might as well explore...

Re: Running cooler - does this make sense?

When I was first started building racing flatheads (was 15 years old), quite a few old timers said to "cut off every other water pump vane, drill 1/4" holes in the rest and put washers with 1/2"...

Re: 1940 Ford stumbles when making a sharp left or right turn

Thanks for reporting back! Seems the regulator had more spring pressure than the pump could overcome . . . so you were fuel starved.

3 PSI is fine for Holley or Ford 94 type carbs, but a bit...

Re: Local Estate Auction 1935 Roadster Sells for $53,925.00

That is a pretty high price . . . though there are not that many 35/36 roadsters out there.

Re: Can I use this block?

Looks like it could be a good usable block . . . probably came from a race engine back in the day. Looks like it might be ported as well. If it was mine, I'd take some further steps to figure out...

Re: 1950 Ford 8BA flathead leak Down Test

Then my guess is that the rings have not seated. Did you take it out and run it hard after the new ring job to break the rings in?

What shape were the bores actually in? How worn, how much...

I've not used Mahle or Wisco pistons . . . though would have no problem giving either of them a try. You might check with them all for pricing and delivery - can be a real issue these days.
