Re: Posies Front Spring install 1937

I weld a piece of flat bar to each clamp so they just clear the crossmember when tightened. I also usually have to add a spacer (or washers) on the u-bolts so cotter pin hole comes out right.

Re: F1 Brake return springs

What I was getting at is that if you are doing manual brakes; you would need to buy two of those kits to get enough retract springs.

Re: Gas tank mounting conundrum

Re: F1 Brake return springs

The springs have pretty good tension and take some stretching to install.

If you hook a tape measure on them; the springs for the 11" brakes measure
about 4-7/8" end to end compared to about...

Re: F1 Brake return springs

Springs look like they are too long. From the appearance they look like springs for 12" brake. What's the part number?

Check the amount of coil spread on the blue springs on an F-1 brake assy.

Re: 12v conversion 59a starter solenoid 4 pole. 46 Mercury.

You do have the battery cable hooked up to the starter and are only using the 4 post solenoid as a relay to send voltage to the solenoid terminal.

Battery cable hooked to starter.
Wire from there...

Here are the drain holes on my early '35; the holes just drain into the sheet metal where it runs into the cowl sides.

Re: '35 Coupe Windshield Drain Questions

My early '35 coupe has drain holes; but no nipples as on later cars. Poked a small wire into them to see where it came out; appears the water was supposed to drop between the kick panel and cowl side...

Re: 40 pick up steering column bushing

You might find that a 3/4" wheel barrow bearing needs opening up to fit the larger Ford steering shaft. At times the flange limits how deep it fits in the tube; needs to go in deep enough to clear...

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?

Title should go with the chassis/body remnants.

Think of it this way: your punk neighbor swaps out the mill in his '64 Impala for one of those initial motors, and you bought the 327. Would you...

Re: 1936 vs 1937 Emergency Brake Lever

If you go the '36 rear mount; you also need to remove the later frame bracket and install the earlier frame brackets.

It may be easier to fabricate a bracket for the '36 lever that bolts to the...

Re: 1939 to 1940 brake conversion

Wide 5 hubs and 5-1/2" hubs are totally different; you can't mix drums between the two.

Re: King Pins Anyone in MN that can do them

While everybody seems to want to spend up and have a machine shop do the bushings with their Sunnen hone; piloted king pin reamers did the job for years; and still work pretty good, too.

Re: 1946 Lincoln Turn Signal Switch Wiring

You also use a 6 wire Thunderbird switch in place of the 3 wire Lincoln switch and eliminate the need for multiple lights, relays, or trailer converter.

On the other hand; since my Lincoln switch...

Re: Starter problems

Since it only happens when hot maybe you could jump the wires on the starter and add in a relay like JSeery posted as a "hot start relay" (like people do with Chevy starters).

Re: Brake Drums

'36 spindles are the same from the flange outward as the later '37-'48 spindles and are not longer.

The appearance of deeper hub may give that impression; but the original backing plates had a...

Re: Question about selling A parts

For something hard to ship such as core motors, I would go with something local; like facebook marketplace or Craigslist.

Kinda makes you wonder what's inside.

The lower cams are usually only set during the...
