Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

I enjoyed following along on your ordeal, glad to hear you were able to resolve the cam timing issue. I better buy a degree wheel.

Re: 1939 pedals

You can also check out the Early V8 Garage for their hydraulic brake conversion kits. They use the original pedals and don't require cutting out the pedal hole in the frame.

I think somebody should tell the security guards to get their mits off the eye candy.

Re: 1940 merc & ford x member replace

Yes, I didn't know very much about it and thought that was the way to get it in. I also had to dent the front of the oil pan in to clear the front crossmember. I left the trans in the original...

Re: Left and right cylinder head

I am not sure there was a 6049 head for the 37/38 21 stud engine. I cannot find them listed either in the June, 1937 parts book or the 1950 "Green Bible" parts book.
I have a 1937 21 stud engine...

Re: 1939 Sealed Beams

Our 37 had a set of the Electroline sealed beam conversions on it when my brother bought it in 1964. They seemed to be aimed too high and could not be adjusted down enough. Maybe they were trying...

Re: Marvel Classic Motor Oil

I would do both for a sticky valve, down the carb for immediate application to the problem valve and in the tank for preventative measure.

Re: Problem Removing Steering Wheel

I like the idea to use a bearing separator under the steering wheel if you don't have the K.R. Wilson puller.

Re: 1933-34 battery box

Whizzernick, that is a great looking duplicate, what is the height of your box? Sadly, I have a 1937 that used the shorter battery and the top would be exposed.

Re: 36 Can't Stop The Oil Pan Drain Plug Drip

I am not a fan of using an O ring in a joint that is not designed for it. I would use a copper or aluminum washer and replace it every oil change.

Re: 33 BB door striker spring

I have had good success with Bob Drake's hinge pin extractor. It is also compact enough to remove clevis pins on the 1937 brake cross shaft.

Re: 59L startup oil pressure at crank speed.

Cranking speed is probably around 200 rpm at the most. I think 20 psi is a good oil pressure for cranking the engine.
