Re: Flywheel bolts

Re: What does this intake manifold fit ?

I have never seen or heard of a V14 Ford or Lincoln engine, until now, and can find no history of one, so when were these made?

Re: Extra quart of oil with oil filter system?

You don't have to add oil to the filter canister. Just put 5 quarts into the pan and run it.

Re: 8ba question

These pictures are much clearer. 51504bat is probably correct about angles with the first pictures. JFYI, the stamped steel full bell was also used in '51 on Ford cars.

Re: Dual chamber master cylinder for drum brakes

I have to disagree with you on the system being totally unsafe. The only thing unsafe was the incorrect M/C plumbing, as I pointed out earlier. I would have also included an adjustable...

KULTULZ,
You're right. I somehow confused this thread with one where front discs were going to sometime replace the drums. My bad! :o
