Re: ford f1 cowl assy

I take that back. Looks like maybe 1/4" to no more than a 3/8" shoulder on that
bolt..... I just looked under my dash.
A 1/4" bolt at 1 1/4" long has a .29" shoulder. I have one in my hand.

Re: ford f1 cowl assy

I posted it.
No idea what Ford's actual part number is for that. Can't find a diagram in the parts books....
I'm guessing they expected you to either-
A) replace the whole assembly or
B) use a...

Re: ford f1 fresh air cowl assembly

You're welcome. I gotta get "into" mine. It's on the list of stuff that "ain't
quite right" or maybe "never been quite right."

Re: ford f1 fresh air cowl assembly

Looked in the body manual. The illustration covers up to 48.....
but it's the car one unfortunately. For the truck it lists only the part number
for the full assembly or the top cover.... I believe...

Re: PCV VALVE SYSTEM for 8BA with Early Intake Manifold

Make sure you have the correct air flow direction. In other words, as an example, GM made at least two different threaded PCV valves and having threads is no indication of air flow direction. You...

Re: PCV VALVE SYSTEM for 8BA with Early Intake Manifold

There are a few OE apps that had threads, but then you're stuck with whatever vacuum specifications those had.
M/E Wagner has an adjustable PCV valve.....

Re: Manifold vacuum at idle... vs without...interesting observations

Ported vs full manifold vacuum.
It's a pretty pervasive story if it's got no substance....
Here's some of that tale on the article's page 57 & 58-

Re: Manifold vacuum at idle... vs without...interesting observations

Yup, it's carefully tacked on there with a MIG.
I tried to "cheap" out on it and find something off the shelf but ended up machining a tiny chunk of material. I used a fairly long 6-32 allen set...

Re: Overdrive Transmission in a 1952 F1

Re: Help decipher GM distributor vacuum canister numbers

I just completed setting up my GM distributor from Charlie a little while ago.
I used the Crane adjustable vacuum can (99601-1).

Don't have Hagerty, but it's a very popular choice with the vintage Mustang folks.

Re: Brassworks radiators

Nice stuff. Woulda gone that way if I hadn't found a good
used radiator down here. The $200 vs the Brassworks
cost was a pretty significant savings.

Re: Steering box.

Box is worn out internally if you can get it 90% perfect but it's so tight that it gets stuck.
It should only be slightly "tight" on center.

Re: Complete conversion kit ? 6v-12v

Mine was already converted to 12v so I built a custom wiring harness & never looked back.
A 6 volt system isn't as forgiving as a 12 volt system with regard to connections, corrosion and grounds....

Re: Thread size for '48-'52 F1 Leaf Spring U-Bolts

The thread size is indeed 9/16-18.
48-52 uses 01Y-5455-C for the "U" bolts. The nuts are 33848-S7
The lock washers are 34850-S

A regular cutting die will definitely "chase" threads.... it will...
