Re: swap 1946 spindle left to right?

Here are a couple of pictures showing front tie rods with both bad and good Ackerman; but note that the one with good Ackerman has terrible scrub radius.

Re: Hydraulic brake questions - 1932 Coupe

Something that hasn't been mentioned is the lack of an e-brake cables. With the brakes apart; it would be a good time to install them.

Also the shoe hold-downs on the '42-'48 rear plate are...

Re: Vega box in a 40 Pickup.

1. The arm faces forward
2. Probably a odd term to describe the center position of a steering box, where it is the

3. Unasked; but a beefier...

'35 windshield post wood

Questioning if the wood in the windshield post is supposed to be recessed as far as shown in the picture; or has it shrunk over the past 86 years. Seems like it would not support the garnish and also...

Re: Dupont Centari Acrylic Enamel

I've bought Black Centari from those guys several times; last time was about a year and half ago. Seems to me I've heard that black is the only color they make now-a-days. Of course all that could...

Re: Daytona Carburetor float valves

I've read an account of controlling fuel pressure rise after shutdown (and the resultant flooding) by installing a bypass line, fitted with a small orifice, around the fuel pump.

Re: 46 ford rear drum cutting

If the place has an Ammco brake lathe; they may have the small OD arbor laying on a shelf and not know that is what they need for rear drums.

Here is a picture of the regular and small OD arbors.

Re: Glove Box Spring Question

Re: Front brake wheel stud/brake drum question

Studs go thru the flat holes.

No idea on Ford's reason for the other set; plus they are way too tight on the studs.

Had to use a hole saw around the studs a couple times to get stick drums...

Re: From bad to worse

I don't think a reading of 6 volts across the resistor under no load is necessarily bad; maybe I'm wrong about the first part; but you do need to figure out why there is no spark when you do have...
