Re: flathead refresh

OK, it is an 8ba engine then. No experience, but read that the PCV setups works fairly well on the 8ba.

Re: flathead refresh

I think the 51 may be a typo, the picture is of a 41.

Re: '40 Gas, Oil pressure Gauges

As long as you have the correct pick-up for the pump and the screen is the correct distance from the oil pan, it should be fine.

Did you see the attachment to post #3 on how to check the gauges? ...

Mike, are you still needing the rebuild? Or is it taken care of?

Re: Running Hot When Not Moving

I agree with B&S. Remove the thermostats and see where the rest of the system is out.

Re: Original Engine and Trans.

The number stamped on the bellhousing part of the transmission would be the same number as stamped on the frame. But, no way to tell if the engine was changed out. Almost all flathead engines have...

Re: Part ID

As already posted (#5), it is a Southwind fuel feed to the heater. They had two different types of fuel feeds you could install. One connected directly to the fuel bowl on the carb, the other one...

Yes, there are different setups on the fuel feed.

Re: 46 rear brake line pictures

They look the same to me, what are you seeing that I can't see? Isn't one side a mirror image of the other (except for a few very minor differences)?

Just later in time with changes through the years. Different oil pan designs, different dipstick provisions, different front covers, water pumps, etc. As far as I know, most of the parts will mix...

Re: heater motor 39 ford

Do you know what heater it is? Lots of different ones were installed. If you know what it is, there are places that work on and have parts for different ones.

For starters it could be a gas...

Re: leaky rear main on 59A

Not impossible, but very difficult to do a rear seal replacement with the crankshaft in place. Could be done if you pulled the transmission back. Dropped the pan, undid the main caps and dropped...

I would also guess someone replaced a cable with whatever they could find locally.

Re: Fuel problem on my '40

How is you fuel line run? Does it totally by-pass the original fuel pump? Hard to see how you would get that much fuel into the oil pan from the carburetor. About the only route is past the rings...

Re: Finally starting my 35s juice brake conversion

Most of my experience is with the F1/F100 setups, so I wasn't sure on the drums. :)

And on the F1/F100 setups I'm to cheap to spring for the price of the new custom drums, so I use a work around...

Re: coil

The 3.0 ohms coils are easier to install, but there are advantages to a resistor + coil setup. That is why Ford used a resistor with the original 6v coils. The resistor varies the resistance as it...

Re: Fuel problem on my '40

Are you sure the fuel pump is not leaking as well? It is a more likely source of a lot of fuel in the crankcase.
