Re: Who is dropping headlight bars out there?

Do you own a torch? Why not do it yourself?

Re: Deuceheaven Video by Mecum Auctions

I don't think that's actually the case. The terms and conditions provided on the auction registration form do not make any mention of such a policy.



They were obviously worth whatever they...

Re: USPS damage in shipping

If it didn't have insurance added you'll be SOL.



Many banks will cash USPS money orders.

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

I'd take it to a machine shop that's experienced in welding cast iron, and then have the deck milled just enough to clean the surface up.

Regardless of what filler material you use, you'll need to...

Re: Main bearing blowup and fasteners

Don't use split "lock" washers, as they provide zero locking function and can adversely affect bolt tension.

Those "new" bolts also look like standard hardware store fasteners, not the appropriate...

Re: Deuce Heaven auction

I'm glad I was able to see these cars together at Gene's before they're scattered across the country.

Re: 1932 - 1934 roadster pickup door hinges

Unfortunately, they're buried away at the back of a storage building at my parents. Haven't seen the light of day in probably close to 10 years.

Re: Piston balancing

The weight of the piston needs to be included when balancing a crankshaft.

You can't change pistons from XYZ grams to ZYX grams without affecting the balance of the system.

Re: Who's gonna fill their shoes?

I think you underestimate the younger generations. Go take a look at the HAMB. Flatheads are pretty popular.

Re: Why not a new casting

No, I didn't. What makes you think those would add substantially to the complexity? You're aware that OHV engines have numerous cores in them, too, right?

For a pattern maker or foundry man, a...

Re: Why not a new casting

Yes, as someone who's designed sand, die, and investment castings, the flathead wouldn't be that much more difficult.

Re: Why not a new casting

A flathead block wouldn't be much more complicated to cast than a SBC. Just a few more cores to deal with.

The issue is the ROI. It's an expensive and time consuming endeavor to develop the...

Re: 1932 - 1934 roadster pickup door hinges

It's been years since I looked at the ones I have, but if IIRC two are originals and two are from a car or closed cab that have been modified to work on an open cab.

It'd certainly be possible to...

Re: Let's start a junkyard fuel injection discussion

Re: halibrand models

There are 301 sized "no-change" center sections, which would allow one to use the corresponding larger (stronger) ring and pinion.

I don't know if Halibrand ever made one, but some of the...

Re: who best to drop 1932 ford axle

Tough to beat the smooth drop of the Anson and Kohler axles. Some (many) of the others just get too stretched out and kinked looking.

Re: 32 winterfront

Pines grilles with 25 louver hoods on open top cars are really baffling, but seem to be a popular combination for some odd reason.
