Re: 60hp engine

37-39 60hp blocks use the same size main brgs. 40 60hp blocks use a larger size main brgs. You may be able to identify the year of the block by the number on the rods as they are larger also. I...

37-48 V8 water pump

I have a 37-48 V8 flathead water pump with a "Ford script" oval in the casting. Is it an original pump or from the Ford parts department?

Re: Oversize OD main bearings for 37 21 stud block

If the brg bores are .015 oversize, could the block be "decked" on the oil pan rail and the brg caps cut a few thousands, then line honed like a SBC to a standard size?

Re: What years are these hydraulic backing plates???

JSerry is showing the area that I am referring to. Maybe the correct term would be "patina" or less rusted. Passenger car housings are shaped different in this area. With these backing plates, the...

Re: What years are these hydraulic backing plates???

Mart is dead right on this. They are off 91D (3/4 ton) trucks; maybe the 1 ton trucks also. Notice the "round" shadow where it bolts to the axle housing. The the two small holes mount the...

Re: Banjo hub bearing seat cracked

Before hunting for a replacement parts, you could have it "maganfluxed" at a machine shop. Most cracks are not in a straight line. You cannot take a chance on such a critical part.

Re: Holley 94 auestion

The brass part that is marked ".098" looks to me like the fuel inlet/seat of off a Stromberg 97? I don't think it's a 94 Holley part.

Re: 1940 3/4 t axles

It is worth saving. Lots of people are building "dirt track" old cars. They need the 3/4T hubs, diff carrier, and axles. If they are using a quick change center section, they actually need 2 left...

Re: Ford Starter

An 8N tractor (6V) uses the same starter as a 60hp flathead. Your local New Holland/Ford tractor dealer should be able to supply parts for them. Their parts books ever carry the 52-part numbers. ...

Re: Clutch replacement costs...

Our local "new" car dealer charges a $95 an hour shop rate. This is in Tennessee. It's as costly as going to the doctor or dentist.

Re: Mystery Engine Part

I wonder if the PO had a starter drive spring break in the past? It looks to me like a piece of a starter spring drive? Both ends are ruff and looks like the shape of the starter drive.
