Re: Babbitt Finish Boring

HSS with about .060 radius.
I changed radius experimenting but still too rough to suit me. I used Vic Zannis' setup just for my own use. I served a Tool & Die Apprenticeship many moons ago and still...

Re: Opinions wanted on 3.78 in a Columbia

My '40 coupe and pickup both have 3.78s with columbias with warmed up flatties.
They work good on the freeway at 65 - 70 even up hills.
I love 'em!

Re: how can you tell the 1942 from 1947 pickup apart

Never have seen one with wipers over the windshield like the Russky one.

Re: Blew The Rear End In My '40 coupe

Yup, now I have to get my hands dirty.

Re: Columbia in a 1941 Ford pickup

I have one in my '40 pickup and it works great.
Width is OK as pointed out but the drive shaft is too long.
I think I used the '40 DS and wishbones on the later rearend.
Somebody will point it...

Re: Model T front axle

I'm thinking about making a bench for my yard out of unusable T parts.
Three axles is a good start.
I have a two piece crank, bent rods, wishbones and a lot of other rusty stuff.

Re: Header and intake combo question
