Re: Cubic inch question

Some learned it as 2piR squared and others as Dpi squared; either way the answer comes out the same.

Re: 1936 radiator petcock

If it is an original one, there's no packing inside, just a tapered fit between the shank of the handle and the base. If it is leaking and turns too easily, the tension spring on the shank opposite...

Re: 1936 Ford Pickup - Commercial vs Passenger

Maybe it would help if you just tell us what the wheelbase is of what you are working on. If it is not 112" (the commercial chassis), but either 131 1/2" or 157" (the two then-available truck...

Re: 1936 Ford Pickup - Commercial vs Passenger

As the man said, there's no such thing as a "passenger" pickup. They were all commercial vehicles. Big trucks were not referred to as "commercial" trucks, just "trucks". The distinction was the...

Re: 1932 Ford 4 cylinder engine tins question

Despite the seller's claim, only the right side pan of the pair is for a '32 V8. The left side pan is for a four (note the absence of an opening for a crossover pipe).

Re: 1939 pedals
