Re: Crankshaft pulley - cast iron, steel or aluminum

Hi Gene -


If you send me an e-mail to "paul.bjarnason@gmail.com" I will tell you, but I don't want to post the name here, because I am not unhappy with my rebuilder -- he didn't do anything...

Re: Crankshaft pulley - cast iron, steel or aluminum

OK, thanks for the advice. I have given up on changing out the pulley because I have been unable to remove the second part of the two-piece pulley -- and, as you suggest, if I were to disturb the...

Re: Removal of two-piece crank pulley

I don't trust the two-piece cast iron unit to hang together. Since I already have almost $10K in this rig, I think it's reasonable to invest less than $200 to ensure the crank pulley does not come...

Re: Snyder's radiator vs stock

I bought a Chinese aluminum radiator for my '29 Tudor for about $300. Beautiful craftsmanship but not terribly original looking when the hoods are open. Looks closer to a radiator from the early...

Removal of two-piece crank pulley

In order to replace a two-piece crank pulley with a billet steel crank pulley, I want to remove the two-piece crank pulley from my '29 Tudor's crankshaft. The motor is in the car. I can't get the...

Re: Crankshaft pulley - cast iron, steel or aluminum

Thanks for all the input, gentlemen. As good as everyone says the modern cast iron reproduction pulleys are, today, I decided to eliminate all chance and ordered a stock-sized steel billet pulley. ...

Crankshaft pulley - cast iron, steel or aluminum

The crank pulley on my freshly rebuilt ($10K) motor is cast iron and I have heard that the cast iron ones can break, which would be inconvenient when on the road. I see that "Secrets of Speed"...

Re: aluminum radiators

I bought one, but I have not yet installed it. It appears to be a fine radiator with beautiful craftsmanship. Nice looking welds.

Re: 16" Wheels

Thanks. That's what I was looking for, i.e., confirmation that a tire spec'd for 5" - 6" wide wheels would work O.K. on a 1935 Ford wheel which is only 4" wide. I don't want the tires popping off...

tires for 1935 16" wheels

I am putting 1935 Ford 16" wheels on my '29 Tudor and am about to buy some tires for it. The car as a warmed up Model A motor from Schwalms and Lincoln brakes, so I'm hoping to be able to safely go...

Folks - Someone did a very nice rundown on vintage Ford wheels, wheel sizes and fitment by years, but I cannot seem to locate it. Can anyone link me to it? Thanks in advance. Bj

Re: Virus time off from school

In Prince William County Virginia, my 11th grade grand daughter was sent home with no school work to do -- zip, zero, nada.

15 X 7" wire wheels

I have a set of '35 Ford wire wheels but it would cost $150 per wheel to get them re-done in powder coat and they are very old and need some metal work. Right now, Jegs has a sale on 15" X 7" wire...

Re: Settling of the rear spring

Settling of the rear spring

To install the rear spring on my '29 Tudor, I just put the rear spring "anti-squeek" material on top of my rear spring and synched everything down real good. I don't know the torque I used, but I...
