Re: Question about 32-34 spindles

Re: 47 Ford Headlights

OR....maybe that wire(s) is/are LOOSE at the switch. Just work thru it systematically, one step at a time, so that you KNOW where the problem WAS! DD

Re: 8BA oil canister bolts

I guess I lacked a whole lot of clarity with MY statements. The pattern on the two examples I posted APPEARS to match the stock pattern that Jim (19Fordy) showed with the Merc head, especially with...

Even though the OTHER lights around the car (tails, parks, etc.) are working, there could still be a problem with the HEADLIGHT bulb circuit going through the HEADLIGHT switch. Or, the wires on...

Re: Flathead ID

The strange "firing order" markings on the heads, along with some other details, generally point to these as being a '37-ish Ford "Pilot" engine. There's one in my '37 coupe. About a gazillion...

Re: 1947 Ford - convert to open drive line

And interestingly, I went looking for the weight differences to satisfy my own curiosity. The '57-'59 9-inchers (the 'clean' ones....pictured...like in MY coupe) weigh 197 lbs. with a "Trac-Lok". I...

Busted! Good eye there, Bob. Yup...I believe that just MIGHT be one of those 'oddball', "Duntov-Enhanced" Power Sources. Actually, a '65 RPO L76-type 365 horse. We also have a "factory" '65 L76...

Re: Front end lift.

I'd be reluctant to use a 2" spacer in that crossmember. MAYBE a 1"....on a 'good' day. You really need to find yourself a NOS spring. Maybe Kube can chime-in here on that. NOS springs sure...

Re: 1947 Ford - convert to open drive line

There's an awful lot that can be said FOR, and AGAINST using a Ford 9" rear end, especially in a street-driven "hot rod", as with this sort of mod, we ain't talking 'STOCK' any more.

Re: Pressure plate bolt torques

You're gonna find that these "light" figures are pretty-much correct for a 5/16" bolt, depending on the actual GRADE of steel used. 3/8" bolts are going to require a little more 'oomf' to snug 'em...
