If necessary, 'gang' them. I think my old truck has at least two of them.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

And, I agree with the 'I agree'. Hard for me to understand an experienced engine machinist doing this. And.... the guys that have bored for me, kind of 'sneak up on it', meaning they purposely bore...

Re: Wanted 35 Speedometer

Fer whatever it's worth... I've got a speedo, not sure of year, and not what you describe as to good, working, etc. On the plus side, it's free for the taking. I would need help from members here to...

Re: 21 study cylinder head differences

I would encourage anyone interested in 'cc's', to get the very inexpensive stuff to do it yourself. I would suggest that a measuring cup, using water, will not give sufficient accuracy, and will only...

Re: Burned out restored 'B' PU - no extinguisher?

So... what's the current thinking, as to type of fire extinguisher ? (for car use, fed likely by gasoline)

Re: 40 Ford Flywheel

yeah... I've got one. Probably not going to ship. They gotta be common, like dime-a-dozen. Wherever you are, should be able to find one.

Re: Good sounding single muffler

I tried a single Smitty, both on my 47, and on my 34. Obviously opinion, sounded ok to me.

Re: First trip away in the 33

My heart goes out to you. I haven't been able to do it, yet. Short trips, yes. But, I sure miss 'my bride'. Travelling alone sure is hard for me. We were married 55 years, and did everything...

Re: Mechanic grade tires for my '51 Ford Tudoor

Around my area, it's as simple as a trip to the local tire store. For me, I just tell them, 'four rollers', off the used junk pile. Sure, they're radials, and sometimes miss-matched sizes. If I'm not...

Re: Valve seat cutters

My experience with these cutters is that they tend to 'chatter', if you try to work them 'fast'. I'm thinking that a drive motor would be the last thing I would want. For a 'smooth' result, I've been...

Re: Valve seat cutters

What do youall use for a guide. Anything I've tried is pretty loose and sloppy. And, yes, I have an old accessory guide that was intended for valve seat work, but it is also sloppy.

Re: How bad is this crack?

I had one (34) that was much worse than what you show. Bad enough that the spring pounded the crossmember upward. And, that forced the crossmember length to increase. and that pushed the framerails...

Re: new valve seats for a 53 EAC

Agree with Pete and KiWi.... I've had seat-rings put in a couple, before I knew any better. So far, for me, unnecessary. I'm not going to live long enough to ever need seat-rings. (Referring to...

Re: Hydraulic brake questions - 1932 Coupe

X2 on what Neal said.... I realize it will be a tough job with the body on. But, the results should be worth the trouble. And, I believe 'real' 32 pedals will also be worth the effort. Then, if you...

Re: Removing Corn Head grease from steering

Back to post #8...... The steering box in a 33/34 is real close to the exhaust manifold, meaning that the steering gear gets real hot when the car is at operating temp. If cornhead grease is doing...

Re: Moved to Prineville, Or.

Coincidence... My 47 came to me from LaPine. Seemed to be quite a car-culture in that neighborhood. ('Course, that was 20 years ago.)
