Re: 1940 Ford fuel gauge issue

Be gentle with the sending unit. Do not damage that "carbon resistor" but make sure it's fully contacted. Make sure you float has no hairline cracks. Run a ground wire from the sender to the frame...

Re: Help ! Help !

Please explain exactly what year, make and model engine you are working on and whether or not you are using stock parts. Don't mess with the starter drive cover as it will only make things worse.

Re: Adjust toe in question...

After doing the toe in, the drag link is then adjusted to "center the steering wheel" lock to lock, if needed.

Re: Offenhauser/Edelbrock heads 59AB

I was able to fill in some of the blanks.

Re: how to check rear wheel bearings

I don't think there is any adjustment on rear wheel bearings. Whe the hub and keyway are installed and the assembly "torqued tight" that's the only built in adjustment.

Re: Head Bolt continually weeping

rockfla is 100% correct about not using stainless nuts and bolts as they shear too easily using the torque required on head bolts. The threads will stretch, especially after repeated use.

Re: '35 backing plate bolts

Replace the stock bolts with Grade 8 1/2-20 SAE bolts. The hex head will provide a "wrenching" surface. Or you could tack weld a nut to the head of the OEM bolt.

Re: Head Bolt continually weeping

Doesn't look like you have installed ss bolts as your photo shows studs.

You will probably have to remove the stud and reseal it.

I would be hesitant to use stainless bolts as they may not be...

Re: 3.54 vs 3.25

As a side note, it's intersting to note that:

"The maximum speed was 35 MPH until 1940 and was 50 MPH from 1941 until 1958 (excepting the national 35 MPH limit of World War 2). In California...
