Re: '32 Roadster Rumble Seat Frame Mounting???

I can see how folks do not like losing all the trunk space that the rumble seat takes up, but I'm glad I kept it in my 32 Cabriolet.

While it is not very 'utilitarian', I like the looks of it. ...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

I'll bet your Grandson was visited by the 'Snap-On' or 'MAC' folks in their nice big rolling shopping centers . . . they love to sell those big-ass tool boxes, full of great tools - with a very high...

Re: Kit for mating juice brakes to early spindles-Richard's Early V8 garage?

I question whether grease shields are even necessary these days? You don't have them on almost any modern drum brake and the quality of the lip seals are very good. I don't believe there is any...

Re: Building a 255 from a 221 block, help needed.

The 49-53 pump has helical gears, has it's own pressure relief and will flow more oil than the earlier pumps. The 'standard volume' version is what most of us use in just about anything (other than...

Re: Kit for mating juice brakes to early spindles-Richard's Early V8 garage?

I'm helping a friend build his 32 Roadster and he ordered a set of the adapter plates from Richard about a month ago - and I tacked them onto his 40 backing plates. I'm sure Richard is still in...

Re: Building a 255 from a 221 block, help needed.

And plug the oil hole - as it is not needed with a crab dizzy. I'd also put the early cam/crank gears on it - so the thrust it toward the block and not toward the timing cover.

Re: Cam degreeing sanity check

Also, you need to check both the intake and the exhaust on the same cylinder - as the amount that the cam "is off" may not be the same (though it should be). I've seen plenty of cams where the...

Re: Hershey Auto Auction

I was at the auction . . . the prices blew me away! The lesson I learned was that if I ever want to sell anything in our world, I need to drag it all to my Cousin's ranch in SD and have an auction....

Re: Interesting 8BA

I've never known the casting numbers on 49-53 blocks to denote anything of value - as all the blocks were basically the same in those years (regardless of car model and destination). Looks like it...

Re: Head gasket question

Either one will work fine . . . though I tend to only use the ones with round holes.

From everything I know (which is not much - LOL), Ford decided to restrict the amount of water flow that too...

Re: 59AB advice on "new" flathead

I think you're heading down the right approach - take it all apart, clean and inspect everything, check all your clearances. I'd clean the bores with Scotchbrite, make sure there isn't any rust on...

Re: Cam degreeing sanity check

Make sure you verify that you have accurately determined TDC on the cylinder where you're installing the valves - use the "positive stop method" to ensure you have correctly found TDC. Also, if you...

Re: Removing the Flywheel

Important: As V8Coopman noted, the two front exhaust manifold bolts are 7/16 NC, while the center and rear bolts are 3/8 NC.

It is quite easy to NOT notice and them mount the engine on the...

Re: vertex condenser

I'd checkout Magsarus . . . they have both condensers in .36uf and .23uf. Here is a link:

Re: 41 Ford SuperDeluxe - V8 Rings stuck (again)

For one thing, I noticed a lot of rust color in at least one cylinder - that means you've had water in the engine and the resulting rust is what is the most likely cause of the engine being stuck. I...

I had the same issue on one that I recently rebuilt. I had to put the gear in my lathe and increase the ID just a bit. Not a big deal, just a pain to have to do it. It is the nature of many of...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck
