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.

Re: Painted silos

Perhaps so the inside walls are smooth. :confused: If there's no insulation (or other modern amenities) in the wall you wouldn't really need to have siding on the exterior of the studs. The porch...

Re: 1932 Ford rumble lid

Nothing says you have to put the seat in your trunk. You could leave out (or remove) the seat springs and riser, leaving you with a top-opening trunk.

Re: Gas pump question

Not to mention the brand of fuel sold. Larger companies would have been more likely to be more on the leading edge of pump technology than their smaller local or regional counterparts.

Re: Can someone go to downtown Chicago to verify a VIN for me?

It's a small block with the later style center bolt heads.

Re: T5 guys TKX

I would agree. It even shares some of the exact same boss and rib geometry at the bellhousing flange and in the tail shaft housing.

I don't really consider this to be a replacement for the T5. ...

Re: What color to paint repro Winfield 7:1 head?

If it's iron I'd paint it the same color as the block. If it's aluminum I'd leave it raw.

Re: Spring clamp torque value?

Fasteners should be tightened without any sort of lubricant unless specified. It will reduce the amount of torque required to reach X amount of bolt stretch, often in an unreliable manner.

Re: Wood For My 1934 Ford Project

I certainly hope that's not the case as I've been procrastinating on ordering some wood that I believe he's the only one that reproduces. :(

Yeah, the roofline on that Vicky was a real failure in execution.

Re: 1932 Ford Vicky

I think that $10k is an outlier for a Winterfront, even for a pristine one. The one on this car would have been nowhere near that much.

Re: 1932 Ford Vicky

Looks pretty solid to me. That fender is rough, but the rest doesn't look bad. You must be used to creampuffs.

Re: Rubber fuel line failure

The pump he is using is not outputting enough pressure to cause an issue with the rubber line. It's fine in that respect.


I suspect he has a fuel incompatibility issue with the type of rubber...

In this case, the batteries are wired in parallel and not in series as your original post seems to convey.

Re: Wheel stands

I use 4x4 and 2x4 cribbing because it's:

cheap
strong
easy to procure or re-purpose
can be adjusted as high or low as needed in 1.5" and 3.5" increments
doesn't take up much storage space
