Re: Did I hear this correctly???

"This pair of handsome cars carries the gravitas of being owned by an icon of the American automotive industry."

I wouldn't call Edsel Ford II an, "icon of the American automotive history." His...

Re: Why not a new casting

No, I didn't. What makes you think those would add substantially to the complexity? You're aware that OHV engines have numerous cores in them, too, right?

For a pattern maker or foundry man, a...

Re: Why not a new casting

Yes, as someone who's designed sand, die, and investment castings, the flathead wouldn't be that much more difficult.

What makes you think the flathead would be substantially more difficult than a...

Re: Why not a new casting

A flathead block wouldn't be much more complicated to cast than a SBC. Just a few more cores to deal with.

The issue is the ROI. It's an expensive and time consuming endeavor to develop the...

Re: 1932 - 1934 roadster pickup door hinges

It's been years since I looked at the ones I have, but if IIRC two are originals and two are from a car or closed cab that have been modified to work on an open cab.

It'd certainly be possible to...

Re: Let's start a junkyard fuel injection discussion

What the heck carburetors are you trying to put on your flathead intake? :confused:

The 97, 94, 81 style carburetors that are common and era-appropriate are bolt-on mates for the intakes that...

Re: halibrand models

There are 301 sized "no-change" center sections, which would allow one to use the corresponding larger (stronger) ring and pinion.

I don't know if Halibrand ever made one, but some of the...

Re: Some interesting reading on brake fluid

As noted by tubman, that article contains some incorrect information regarding the different fluid types.

Re: who best to drop 1932 ford axle

Tough to beat the smooth drop of the Anson and Kohler axles. Some (many) of the others just get too stretched out and kinked looking.

Re: 32 winterfront

Pines grilles with 25 louver hoods on open top cars are really baffling, but seem to be a popular combination for some odd reason.

Re: 1932 Ford rumble lid

Nothing says you have to put the seat in your trunk. You could leave out (or remove) the seat springs and riser, leaving you with a top-opening trunk.

Re: Gas pump question

Not to mention the brand of fuel sold. Larger companies would have been more likely to be more on the leading edge of pump technology than their smaller local or regional counterparts.

Re: T5 guys TKX

I would agree. It even shares some of the exact same boss and rib geometry at the bellhousing flange and in the tail shaft housing.

I don't really consider this to be a replacement for the T5. ...

Re: What color to paint repro Winfield 7:1 head?

If it's iron I'd paint it the same color as the block. If it's aluminum I'd leave it raw.

Re: Wood For My 1934 Ford Project

I certainly hope that's not the case as I've been procrastinating on ordering some wood that I believe he's the only one that reproduces. :(
