Re: Media blast?

DO NOT USE CONCRETE BLOCKS to support your vehicle,

they are extremely weak in the direction shown in your picture. Use wood instead or get taller jack stands.

Lawson, the 1937 parts book shows the coils are the same between the two size engines and the generators are different part numbers.

Re: 1935 Ford Frame

On my 1937 chassis, I used the hole pattern from the right hand X member to locate the oval hole for the pedals on the left side after repairs. Three of the pedal bracket mounting holes still...

Re: rear rope seal

If you take the oil pan off, I would recommend that you change the expansion plugs on the oil pan gasket surface. There are four of them and they rot from the inside out.

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

Re: Cracked Valve Seat

Re: Cleaning aircraft aluminum

Re: Merc crank clean out plugs

The nominal OD of a 3/8" pipe is 0.675" and the tap drill size for 3/8" NPT threads is 37/64", so the 3/8" pipe plugs might work for your application.

Re: Bushings and reamers ***thread to end all threads*** add your knowledge
