Re: what a job, shuddering fixed and back to work.

Nice work! I wish I knew somebody around here that had the right size lathe and the associated tools to do this.

Re: SCAM alert

Keep in mind that the scammers change their eMails and phone numbers like clockwork. Anytime I see a gMail address with three numbers - is a big red flag to start with. Also, are they frequent...

Re: Clayborne engine overhaul stand attachments maybe available

I have the same/similar stand that you have - would love the correct brackets for a flathead. Are you thinking to making multiple sets (appears to be the case) - any idea as to associated...

Re: 33 Tranny to Driveshaft Oil Leak

My guess is that you've over-filled the case. There will always be some oil coming through the ball-bearing, but that is more than I'd expect.

Re: Mohawk lifts

I have a 2 post BendPak - Asymmetrical 10,000 lb, 2 post lift. It is a very high quality product, much heavier steel than most of the "copies" that I've seen. I would highly recommend a 2-post...

Re: First 100 Miles!!! Or a touch more. My '39 Pickup

I didn't use to like any of the Ford trucks from 37 - 39. Kind of skipped over them in my mind until lately . . . kind of like the 35 Ford! Now, I kind of like these years - maybe even more than...

Re: Correct float setting

Don't overthink it . . . 1/32 of an inch isn't going to make any difference at all. The most important thing is to make sure you have a good fuel filter, that the fuel lines (if rubber) are new and...

Re: drive shaft re-spline

Easy answer . . . ALL of them in the right hands, and more than 500 HP for many of them.

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

An old friend had a funny saying for team work . . . "All of us working together are dumber than any of us!"

I didn't actually agree with it - if one had a decent team of folks!

Re: drive shaft re-spline

Would greatly appreciate you posting some more information as to whom is doing the work and the approximate cost. This might help some of us with our own goofy projects. ;)

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Just to go over the timing once again: Are you still saying that it has 20 degrees of advance at startup . . . and about 35 when running at a decent RPM (say 2500)? If this is still the case, then...

Re: '34 Radiator Problem

Another option is to have a small fan spacer made - say 1/4" thick . . . this would move your fan forward enough to clear the hoses. Would be a simple piece to make our of aluminum. Obviously...

Re: '34 bent rear spring perches

My guess would be that the one that already has the incorrect angle (for the spring eye) is also probably the one with the incorrect front-to-back angle. It probably got bent in both directions...

Re: '34 bent rear spring perches

Just for grins, can you post a picture of the new rear spring? It should have a very distinctive curve to it (32 - 34) and while the spring eyes are perpendicular to the main leaf, they should be...

Re: '34 bent rear spring perches

If you want, I can go into the shop later on today and put an 'angle gauge' on a set of housings (as well as take a picture or two).

Re: '34 bent rear spring perches

Keep in mind that they're supposed to be bent - as the spring is bent . . .

The only thing to ponder is whether or not there is any appreciable amount of...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

It can also be where/how the t-slot was put into the cam core. I've seen many mistakes on a variety of aftermarket cams, so nothing would really surprise me at this point. Another option would be...

Re: syncro hub position for second

We all know the feeling! I tend to start "collecting parts" long before I do the rebuilds. The parts that I pay the most attention too are the mainshaft and the cluster shaft - I try to find the...

Re: Help with "Full Race" cam ID

Re: Stromberg carbs

Re: syncro hub position for second

No - it is on the opposite side for the 2nd/high shift rail/rod. I drill the top with a 5/16 NF, then install a bolt that is shortened to length, with a jamb nut on the inside of the top.
