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

I find that FedEx is very predictable. They always always deliver my packages to my neighbor, two houses away.

Re: 59AB Head Difference?

There is no way of knowing what the other 5 owners may have done to the engine, but the stamped numbers do not any known meaning. If both heads are have the 59AB cast in, they are likely to be quite...

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

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.

Re: Help Identify Trim... 1946 coupe?

The ridged detail on the trim says it is '42 or '46. Trim was smooth in '47 & '48.

Re: What years are these from ???

Also, the wheel cylinders have different piston diameters for the forward shoe. This can be seen in the photo.

Re: Brake light pressure switch

Mechanical switches are much more reliable. Take a look at the '58 - '66 Corvette switch. Easy to mount and quite cheap

Re: Gearbox Question 1939 / 1940

The difference in the forks is not only the width of the opening but also the offset. The early fork will not function properly, even if it is opened up to fit over the synchro.

Re: Front Wheel Cylinders

Try Rock Auto. Look for 1946 Ford. Also your local NAPA may be able to get you these parts which are not made in China.

Re: Flywheel Interchangeability

You can use any '32 to '48 (except V8-60), but not the later 8BA type.

Re: 48-6044 Rod, engine radius purpose.

The rear wheels push the rear axle along. The torque tube pushes the engine forward. The rods pull the car.
