Re: Parts list for rebuilding headlights

Colin, you make no mention of glass lens, the cork seal, the lens retainer clips nor the rim retainer. Are those OK on yours??

Re: Parts list for rebuilding headlights

I think you are probably thinking of Don Hesse that sold restored lights on eBay under the name Cobalta. Most of what he was doing is restoring stainless lamps though. Finding head lamp cases in...

Re: Rear Main Cap needed

If you want to come up one day, we'll see if we can pour and machine one that will be close. We will need the crankshaft to know the thrust measurement. Having the block to know where the forward...

Re: Zenith Troubles

If you replaced the Shut-off valve and immediate continued to see leakage, then I would expect that your tank cap is not venting properly and is causing excessive pressure in the tank to minimally...

Re: Ammeter - Needle

Bill, I have not tried them as I felt these were old NORS units and not something they were manufacturing today. The initial turn-off for me was the number plate was incorrect along with the...

Re: Flywheel Housing Check

I guess it is all in what your expectations are. While I have not tried this method with the slip pliers, I feel very confident that I could squeeze the pliers by varying amounts to create 0.003 -...

Re: Flywheel Housing Check

So how do you keep the crankshaft forward when the engine is sitting in the car slanted rearward. Unless the engine is pointing nose downward, you will never get an accurate reading from my...

Re: Flywheel Housing Check

You are correct Mark. Using shims is a bandaid at best. Ford only used two shims on the flywheel which were the same thickness as a compressed flywheel housing gasket.

Re: Gas valve

Look under the shut-off lever on top and you will see a hex headed packing nut. Slightly loosen the packing nut to relieve some tension. The valve stem is actually tapered, and someone has likely...

Re: Oshkosh MARC National ???

Yes, I feel certain your SD will do the trip just fine. :p Just needed to razz you a bit. Ironically, I think I would rather do my driving at night time as it seems traffic is less of a mess (-if...

Re: Oil grooves

Rick, your idea potentially has merit, but where I think Russ and I would have concerns doing as you have suggested is that you potentially have a weak area in the casting by making a longitudinal...

Re: Steering Box 7 tooth vs 2 Tooth vs F100

I doubt it. It is kinda like when we put electric starters on early brass cars in that no two are alike, so we engineer & fabricate as we go. An article would just be more about showing that it can...

Re: 29 Tudor side mounted tire question

I do not have a factory well fender print for a 1928/29 fender to obtain correct info off of, but I can tell you that most of the...

Re: B block hole repair

Dudley, that was my thoughts also. Maybe at this point, Steve takes his chances, adds the water-glass, ...and then roll with it until it caters. Then move pistons, cam, head, and valves to a new A...

Re: Steering Box 7 tooth vs 2 Tooth vs F100

But how do you define reputable? I have probably rebuilt a half dozen steering sectors that were converted to needle bearings and failed. I definitely would not recommend them for use by my...

Re: Oil grooves

What myth? I posted a copy of both the cap and the block from the original Ford blueprints. It clearly shows that Ford engineers specified there are oil grooves.

Re: ignition

Tom, this is a controversial topic simply because many folks believe what seems believable to them in this regard. FWIW, I used to be a dealer for one of the Model-A electronic ignition companies,...

Re: Tudor Top Wood

Yeah, but you are not going to like it. From my experiences, most of the kit wood is made incorrectly when compared to factory prints. With the archives closed where you cannot purchase the prints,...

Re: B block hole repair

Steve, while it is possible that using a tapered cast iron plug would repair this, I honestly feel like there is more to this that you can't see.

My questions are as follows;

Re: Oil grooves

I would agree with that. I am not sure the quantity of oil flow with a gravity system is sufficient to actually carry away heat without being heated itself.
