Re: Lathe set up help for my shop

I did a quick job on my lathe this morning.
I needed to adapt a 1/4" fuel line to a 5/16" outlet from a pump.
I just turned a piece of brass to 5/16 one end, 1/4" the other, a lump on each end to...

Re: A couple of 32 ford questions. Wire and fuel pipe routing.

Thanks David. I think you might be assuming my car is RHD, but it's a LHD American spec car.
But applying the logic you describe, For my LHD car, both fuel line and wires for the tail lights ought...

A couple of quick questions.
Which side of the car's frame does the fuel pipe run on a V8 car? Assume LHD if you want to say driver's side or passenger side.

Re: Lathe set up help for my shop

I don't really know how to advise on this. It's not big enough for skimming drums. It's not big enough to hold an axle shaft. So in reality you won't be holding anything "big". So I don't imagine...

Re: JAX vintage valve components

My experience was that if the screw is too far in or too far out, the deformed thread locking mechanism will not be as effective. I think it is also a good idea not to move them too much during...

Re: 1939 ford deluxe accelerator return spring location/installation

I think you need to free the eye bolt from the firewall and turn it one full turn and put it back in again. It would be easier to do if the linkage is removed.
Yes definitely offer it to the...

Re: 94 carbs

I think 51s are one of the stock sizes so should be ok. 49s might be a bit lean. Maybe good for higher altitudes (If I have that the right way around.)
50s or 51s are normally the ticket.

Re: break-up at WOT

May I add that the problems I was describing are not at high revs. It's at wider throttle openings at lower revs. That's when the HT weakness shows up.

Re: break-up at WOT

In my case at least it was associated with weak High Tension side of then ignition.
The amount of voltage required to...

Re: head torque method?

For what it's worth, I wouldn't run an engine dry after build. I'd run an old engine without coolant for a minute or so just to hear it run.
Re torqueing, I did adopt a different policy on my last...

Re: Parts Unknown

With respect to Coops I don't think the wrench is for spark plugs as it does not appear to have enough hollow area to clear a plug. What size is it a/f?

Re: Door, long or short?

Short ones are short and long ones are long. The roof line on a short door coupe is swoopier. It may be that the short doors re the same length as a 4 door door and the long doors are the same length...

Re: My '53 Customline

I'd suggest to just give it a try tubeless with the wheels as they are and monitor the pressures. If you find you are slowly losing pressure then look at adding something. Any air loss will be...

Ok.

My best guess would be 1/8". The center bolt is 1/8" above the mounting holes.

In the pic the center bolt is centered on the edge of the wood...

Re: Mart's Garage update 2021/Ep23/Pt1. Strip a door down and make it fit! Metal abus

Re: swap 1946 spindle left to right?

^^ David, no. Caster is set in the axle/radius rod arrangement. There is no inbuilt caster in the spindle.
