Re: Affordable Ford V8's

46-48 coupes are on my list of potential cars.
And I just happen to have an engine and trans from a 47 laying around, good to have if needed for spare parts.



Fordors are definetly less...

Re: Affordable Ford V8's

I appreciate the offer but I'm not ready to pull the trigger just yet.
First I need to decide what model I really want before I start throwing money around.

Re: Affordable Ford V8's

Nothing more fun than waking up an old car that's been sitting for a few years.
As long as it's not rusted out since I'm not into major rust repairs.

Cool car but those floorpans looks rustier than I would like them to be.:o

Re: Affordable Ford V8's

I do like the looks of 39-40 Tudors and Fordors a lot better than 41-48 Tudors and Fordors.

Re: Affordable Ford V8's

Funny you mention it because it has crossed my mind but these days they bring almost the same money as a Ford V8.

Re: Affordable Ford V8's

I'm not looking for a definitive answer, just want to hear some opinions from more experienced people than myself.

Fully aware of that it's my decision to make in the end of what car to buy.

Re: Affordable Ford V8's

Great answers.
Budget could probably be stretched a bit above 10k, winter is coming so I have a few months to do some more saving before next summer.

AV8's are cool and I have the Tardel/Bishop...

Affordable Ford V8's

I'm currently in the process of putting together a 1928 Model A Phaeton powered by a 4 banger but I'm feeling the itch for a flathead V8 powered car too.

I've been reading up on different models...

Re: Model B engine transmission and brakes on Model A

I'm using the adapter kit from Bert's in my Phaeton, nice quality items in my opinion.

I've seen that Snyder also sells the Model B adapter kit now.

Re: Rear brake assembly diagram

Yes they do, but would still like the names of things to make sure I don't miss some little thing. Shipping from US to Sweden is expensive.

Re: Rear brake assembly diagram

All I know is that the rear axle is from a '30 pickup, don't know more than that.
Don't have the lever in the backplate.

Pics of how it should look fully assembled would be much appreciated.

Rear brake assembly diagram

Does anyone have a list that explains what all parts on this assembly diagram are called?

My '28 phaeton is missing everything that has to do with the parking brake so some sort of list would help...

The HAMB

Does anyone here know what's going on with The HAMB?

Been down the last 3,5 days for me and it says "Will be back online late tonight".

Re: Throw out bearing

Got one more question, does the B-trans use the V8-style bearing hub or the longer Model A-style hub?

When used with B-engine and B-flywheel.

Throw out bearing

Does the Model A use the same TO bearing as Model B and early V8?

Been searching but can't really find a straight answer to my question.

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

I'm not planning on selling the car because this is something I've been dreaming of building for a very long time, so I'll take my chances and ditch the spark rod and just keeping the hand throttle.

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

Tried the "drill a dimple in the end-method" and that did the trick, lever is in.

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

Yes I will be running a high compression head and centrifugal advance distributor so I will probably ditch the spark lever too.

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

Yes it should be easy but thing is, for some reason I installed the column and steering box in the car before reinstalling the levers.

Guess I'll have to pull it out again so I can hold the column...

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

Guess I'll just have to keep trying then.

When I removed them I thought they ran in a tube the whole length but that sure wasn't the case.
