Re: 1934 three window coupe

Surely the guy meant "Original-style", whereas no "gomezing" of any sort has taken place during the resto. DD

Re: Brakes Bendix style

For what it's worth, "super easy to install" does not necessarily make a GOOD disc brake set-up. There isn't much that's more disappointing than a "half way engineered" disc brake system. Have you...

Re: Interesting 1935 Ford Truck

Such a nice, and interesting truck! And what a shame it appears they probably ran out of paint and mixed-up a second batch for the two doors and hood. It's very seldom that a second batch will...

Re: '39 trans to '37 V8?

Clutch arm needs to match year of car that the trans is mounted in, if all else is stock.

As an aside, back in '64 before I knew any better, I bolted a V8-60 up to the stock trans in my '39...

Re: Painted silos

Re: The new 1940 Ford Book is now available

Re: Grand Cherokee rear to 1935

I've known of two different '98 GCs with V8, and both have had bad rear end problems. Both low mileage, both OLD fuddy-duddy drivers....NO SMOKEY BURN-OUTS! DD

Re: Speedometer for 36 to S 10 tail shaft transmission?

Have you tried threading the stock '36 cable coupling onto the T5 speedo drive? The cable ends are both square and should fit as is. If none of the above work-out, your local speedometer shop can...

Re: Fresh rebuilt 8BA Flathead

Man, your engine is gorgeous. I also like the black. It appears to be an 8BA-type ('49-'53). If so, how is it going to breathe (relieve crankcase pressure) without the original road draft...

Re: 3.55 rear end ratio

Ford did use a 3.54 ratio during many of the 'banjo' years. The tooth count was 11/39. No 3.55s specifically! DD

Re: 91A-8600 Radiator fan
