Re: Engine block I.D. pictures

@38coupe Thank you for posting the chart. It would be great to have the earlier pictures posted again, it would keep this thread as the "go to" place for block identification.

Re: Clutch replacement, 1932 Coupe

Back to the original issue, I would certainly make sure that the "steady rods" were properly in place before deciding that the clutch needs to be replaced. There are some obvious modifications to...

Re: Steering wheel shim

I do not think the welded stud is the source of your problem. If the wheel fits over the stud properly, it should be fine. It is likely that the stud was replaced by someone who did not know the...

Re: 30 & 40s Ford and Mercury Transmissions

The value will depend greatly on their condition. If they have been sitting outside, they are likely only good for parts. However, there are some desirable parts there. The '39 Ford and '39 Merc...

Re: Doing Work Myself - Hood Problems

Remove the front bracket and then slide the hood forward. It works best with two people.

Re: 35 window crank knob removal?

You should be able to drive the pins out with a proper size punch. The pins should be re-usable if you don't lose them.

Re: Type of paint typically used in the 1960's

You can verify that it is lacquer by using a bit of lacquer thinner to see if it softens the paint. The thinner will dissolve lacquer no matter how old. Acrylic lacquer came into use in the late...

Re: Water Pump

Don't throw away any of the 79-8501 or 79-8502 dual pulley pumps. These are for '37 through '48 trucks and have bearings instead of bushings. They are sought after by folks who want to mount a...

Re: aluminum housed oil pump

The body of that aluminum pump looks exactly like a '36 to '41 pump, but the pick-up is certainly unusual.

The fittings you see are the proper place for a gage connection.

Re: leaky brake fittings

I try to use NOS or NORS parts as much as possible. I have had great difficulty with leaks with off-shore parts.

Re: 1932 "survivoration"

@ro, as long as you are not doing anything which cannot be undone, the next owner can do a full restoration if that is their goal.

Re: 32-48 Axle housings

The longer ones are likely '42 - '48. The hangers are different from year to year, so pictures will help.

Re: New Motor Overheating

Once around the block is not a fair test. I would suggest that you repeatedly run the engine under some load. Take a few quick runs through the gears as you go around the block. You can do a cool...

Re: Delivery problem for parts

Re: exhaust manifold

That Pilot left side manifold would be handy for those installations where there is interference between the exhaust and the steering box.

Re: 59a Engine Failed Big Time. Crankshaft journals

Since the groove is circumferential it will be OK to regrind and use. The bearing load capability will be reduced slightly (when the load is directed on that area) but not by enough to worry about.

Re: Brake flaring tool & tube straightener suggestions

To straighten tubing:
Attach one end of the roll to something which will not move (like a tree)
Unroll the tubing and attach other end to a come-along
Attach come-along to another tree

Re: New products thread??

I think that such a thread would be a great help in finding those items which are not in the catalogs of the big vendors.
