Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

That's the way I would read it as well (and the way I have always checked a cam). But I can see how it is somewhat confusing to then put a valve clearance in with the event specs.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Think I would stick a shim in between the lifter and the valve stem to get the valve lash out of the process.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Problem is if the valve lash is in there it will change the opening and closing events. I have always used zero valve lash, but the cam specs are a bit confusing on that.

Re: Left and right cylinder head

The wiring diagrams were not always updated to the latest configuration, so it could have been a 41 mid-year change.

Re: 34 tool storage?

What was the wooden box on the side in the trunk for? I've heard it called a tool box.

Re: Left and right cylinder head

The 1942 wiring diagram is the first to show the two temperature sensors.

Re: vacuum source

Not real easy to see in this photo of the top, but if you look at the bottom of the manifold you can see the channels that connect two adjacent ports for the vacuum source.

Re: Wiring question

Ford used what are referred to a bullet connectors. And yes, they pull apart.

Re: king pin replace

Demingboy, not sure what your objective is for this car. Just get it functional, do mild restoration and keep it somewhat original, Hot Rod it, etc. You need to determine where you are headed so...

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

If flatheads ran hot you wouldn't need thermostats, LOL. The thermostats do bring the engine up to temperature quicker, but they are also required to maintain a minimum operating temp. It is not...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

I assume you have the cam timing specs? It is not totally clear from what you posted what lift you are checking at. The spec is for .020 valve lift with zero valve/lifter clearance. There is a...

Re: My '34 Won't Turnover

Around 37, 36 still had a floor starter switch and 37 had a firewall starter solenoid, but not sure if it was a model year change or not.

Re: Spark Plug Reading

Try taking it off and on and see if there is a noticable difference. Shortest path to a solution would be using an A/F ratio meter.

Re: 1940 merc & ford x member replace

What I have done is build up some frame sections by bending some sheet of the proper gauge and welding the new sections in (after cutting out the original center). They could also be bolted in.

Re: Removing upper steering shaft grommet

Might try rigging up a puller with a flat plate of some type with a hole in the center placed over the steering shaft. Then with 3 or 4 holes in it and bolts or all thread screwed into the bushing...

Re: Use of Slip plate to lube springs

Clem, what are you referring to as 600 weight? The stuff that is sold to the Model A guys? If so, several things here, first "w" doesn't stand for oil weight in general, it is for "winter" and has...

Re: 1939 Sealed Beams

That and the "look", it made an older car look newer in the eyes of the beholders. Don't think many people were interested in keeping them original.
