Re: 21 stud engine best upgrades?

Just a thought and no wisdom.

Well do you mean power or higher highway speeds. A Mitchel OD will split some gears and give you more speed. It's also not destructive if you want to go back to...

Re: 34 smoking starter switch from the newbie.

That could be fixed but the effort maybe more involved then getting a new one, certianly since they are available. It's a very simple switch. But you never know what is wrong till you open it up.

Re: 34 smoking starter switch from the newbie.

I like 3rd gen. but this is a easy serviceable part. At least worth rebuilding or cleaning and adjusting.

Re: 34 smoking starter switch from the newbie.

Simple is best. Also a good way to see how it works. There is just a few little tabs you have to straighten with a needle nose. Don't break them. Like I mentioned you shouldn't have any smoke coming...

Re: 34 smoking starter switch from the newbie.

They are really simple switches. Do what you like. I took my 36 stomp that was off the frame apart and cleaned it. Good luck. Technically there is very little there to smoke and cause issue after it...

Re: 34 smoking starter switch from the newbie.

Im sorry, they where very big pictures and didn't see it as a whole. My bad, what to do. Your thoughts? Looks like a aftermarket model a stomp starter adapted to a 34. To be grandiose delusional. :)

Re: 34 smoking starter switch from the newbie.

That part is just a plate with full battery voltage and a plunger that pushes a small plate to a larger bar plate to temperately make a full circuit contact to the starter. It's always active with...

Re: 34 smoking starter switch from the newbie.

Is your "switch" a button on your floor you start the car with your foot? or are you talking about the power switch on the steering column. If you turned the main power on and never started the motor...

Re: 34 smoking starter switch from the newbie.

The old stomp starters switches might need to be cleaned and grounded well. You are better off servicing your current setup then just buying a new replacement. The old stomp starter is hefty and easy...

Re: 34 ford radiator where to purchase?

JSeery I don't think that would happen with a overflow tube. There is very little material construction difference of a 34 rad and a 38 radiator. As long as the overflow tube is relative to the the...

Re: 34 ford radiator where to purchase?

Question? Why would you think you need to pressurize it on a regular car? If it's clean and new, it'll flow well. You could just put a 4lb cap like the later flatheads.

Re: 8ba valve train help needed

Don't you have to open up the valve seats in the block for chevy valves? So going back to ford valves would take new seats.

Re: Compression Tester

It's hard to say if the HF version will be good or not. I find most things from there either work great or break the first time you use it. There is a lot of companies that sell compression testers....

Re: Flathead Running rich

Just a thought or a "wild" idea. How did you check you carb settings? what kind of engine vacuum readings are you getting.


It could be completely electrical.

Re: Cast iron surface rust removal

It'll rust again very quickly. Depending on the part and where you live, you will have to paint it quick. If its a exhaust manifold it'll rust no matter what you paint it with. Nature of the beast of...

Re: Car wash bucket....

It was never "good" vodka back then. Cheap stuff or everclear. I don't do hard liquor anymore. But we never got around to washing the cars back then either. I think once a yr in the spring works for...

Re: Moving Day

Cool project. Sometimes it takes time. Persistence is the only thing that gets it done. Sometimes doing it right, sometimes piss and vinegar wrong. Looks like you are doing it right.

Re: 39fordpickup

As you can see the bottom of the seat is adjustable. 3 positions. Get out the truck and lift the bottom of the seat and drop into the hole that works. Grated the back of the seat didn't move much! :)
