Re: New misfire - sticky valves?

I don't know about brake clean, wouldn't you want something that will add lubrication rather than wash lube away? I don't know.

If it is the exhaust valve, you could put something on it and lean...

Re: New misfire - sticky valves?

Pull the plug in that cylinder and you can observe the exhaust valve directly below the plug hole. If that one is sticking open you will be able to see it.
You could remove the intake. You can see...

Re: 34 front fenders assembly

Thanks for posting this, David. I can see a few things here that interest me.
Only one bolt goes through from the outside in. I presume this is the only one that screws into the grille, correct?...

Re: 1940 Ford Cluster Gear Question

I would agree that it doesn't look NOS. It does look in good useable condition, though. It's a classic 28 tooth cluster from a 16/28 gearset.

Re: 48 Allard on eBay with a Ford Flathead V8

I like all the quirky little differences on the Allard.

The rear radius arms are Pilot. The rear axle is Pilot. Pilots had mech rear brakes so the cable brakes may be primary. Pilot had an...

Re: What hub/drum assy do I have here?

It's what I'd call a "40" hub. Drum fits over the hub. (Hub is on the inside).

Brakes are 12x1.75"

Later had the hub on the outside but off the top of my head I'm not sure where the switch...

Re: Engine removal '38 deluxe

Is there a problem at the oil pump drive end? Imagine an oil pump that is very hard to turn (mega high pressure) or very tight idler gear, that would impart a forward thrust on the cam from that gear...

Re: Engine removal '38 deluxe

The gears in the pictures are putting the thrust towards the block.

Re: Missing main caps a big problem?

That's great news. If the other motor is a similar price it might be worth snagging that as well. (I can't remember the exact details).

Re: Flathead V8 Distributor Slot in Cam shaft

Veeder, are you sort of stating the obvious?

When firing on No1 plug the rotor arm HAS to be pointing at No1 terminal.

Using this backwards to state that when pointing at the terminal the...

Re: Opinion please

For a long time the 32s, As, 33/34s, 36s and 39 deluxe/40s were the mainstay of rodding. (Plus the Ts). The others were the forgotten models that were overlooked. The street rod era started the trend...

Re: 1939 right rear drum install

In this instance I would remove the key and the brake shoes. I would fit the drum and make sure it fits properly with the correct relationship to the backplate. Once that is deemed to be ok I would...

Re: Crank pulley

I suppose it comes down to some careful measuring of the snouts on both motors. The 48 pulley might be longer but the end is hollow. The bolt fits up inside. If you have all the parts to hand you can...

Re: Crank pulley

From what I can tell, the 37 and the 59 type engines have the same snout. (I think) is that the basic question? Can you dress the front of a 37 the same as a 48? I don't know why not, unless I'm...

Re: Crank pulley

If it's non standard crossmember it is hard to give an answer.

Is there some reason why you think the 48 type gear will not all bolt on? Do you have the 48 pulley? will it fit?

One thing you...

Re: Brake shoe repair

I did the same. The shoe material is pretty fragile. I made the decision to use it. I would carefully file off the corner so it won't break off and use it on the back. That is a rear shoe (long...

Re: Crank pulley

4" higher than stock? That motor should fit in at the stock height. You need to make spacers to adapt the engine mounts to the 34 crossmember.
I can't advise on the front pulley, but if it was at...

Re: Engine removal '38 deluxe

My gut feeling, Will, is that the cylinder wall will be fine, as it has only been abraded, not impacted. If the score is deep, it is possible to cheat the boring bar over to equalise up the cuts and...
