Re: Condenser

I will have to challenge this statement. The capacitance of a condenser is best determined by several factors, the two most important being coil inductance and the optimum speed of the engine. I...

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

DD - The first thing I will admit is that your general knowledge of aviation is superior to mine, but I have spent enough time researching reliable sources to believe most of what they are saying. It...

Re: Stromberg help

Grose-Jet. Another solution looking for a problem. Seems to be increasingly common these days.

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

Funny, other than the old Ni-Cad batteries finally wearing out, I've never had a problem with any of the electric hand tools I have had. I haven't had a Lithium-Ion battery go bad yet, either.

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

After some references to electric airplanes on this thread a few days back, I decided to do a little responsible investigation of the subject. What I found was stunning; the vast majority of the...

Re: Mating an 8ba with a 1939 trans help

Jeez, you guys are tough. My only point was that you can't do it with all 8BA parts or all early parts.

I believe that this kind of basic information would be valuable to the O/P.

Re: Condenser

I'll bet I've killed the sale of about 100 sales of my "Trash Cans" by recommending these when "lookin' good" is not important.

It's for the good of the hobby. (Obsession?):rolleyes:

Re: New guy

I hope I was wrong. Good luck with the project; I have always liked '41 Fords; they are the perfect transition from the early models to the "Fat-Fendered" post war vehicles.:)

Re: 1938 Radio Removal

I would LOVE that. I bought a set of the complete recordings of "Amos & Andy" several years ago. Then, Bill Cosby got involved and shut down the sale of the recordings because they were "racist"....

Re: Columbia rear ratios

I think it depends on your engine. I have a '51 coupe with a straight transmission (no overdrive) and 3.55's. I have a pretty stout Mercury engine in it, and everything is fine with it, except that I...

Re: Valve lifter bore wear

Sounds like you need a new set of lifters. Look at it this way : they're a lot cheaper than a new block.

Re: 36/37 water pump housing

Picky, picky, picky. I guess that's what separates the pros from the hoi polloi.

Re: 1938 Radio Removal

This is a good idea; I don't know about your "neck of the woods", but all we get up here in Minnesota are crop reports on AM. There is an occasional Spanish speaking program, but being a Norwegian, I...

Re: no advice needed, but I am curious

I had a '48 Seagrave open cab pumper with the Pierce-Arrow 468 cubic inch flathead V12. I won a lot of beers betting guys I could start it with the crank. It was kind of unfair, because the engine...

Re: Custom 1939 Ford -- Really!

Things like that can be burned into your mind, never to be erased. In the '60's, there was a guy from Kenosha, WI, that had a '36 5 window that was nicely done. It was featured in a couple of...

Re: Mating an 8ba with a 1939 trans help

If that's what works, fine. I just know that there has to be some mixin' and matchin' of parts because of the difference in spline size, but don't remember the exact combination. I do remember that...

Re: Mating an 8ba with a 1939 trans help

Great post DD. As I remember it, you have to use a Mercury clutch disc to match the splines on the transmission (1 3/8" vs 1" on an 8BA?) and an appropriate pressure plate (either a Mercury with a...

Re: The Future of Our Vintage Fords?

I'm with you. What's more important; a few old farts preserving the objects of their very specialized hobby, or the future of the planet?

Re: Transmission & Banjo Oil Changes - A must do!

One thing that surprised me when I got my '51 Ford 34 years ago was that the chassis lubrication interval was 1000 miles. Things were different back then, and I try to keep to the lubrication...
