Re: Late 1932 Driveshaft Length

I did a video on this and had some magic numbers.
From my investigations from factory ford parts the driveshaft is 45mm shorter than the torque tube. If you have the torque tube you can deduce the...

Re: Late 1932 Driveshaft Length

I believe the photo above is a 33/34.
32: Brackets straight, rods are bent.
33/34: Brackets angled, rods are straight.

Re: 1940 ford 2 door

While not exactly the same, the fenders could probably be made to fit with some minor work. Certainly a lot less work than trying to make the hood fit.
It's just the hood that really needs to be the...

Re: What are these upper shock mounts?

On my 32 I modified f1 type and they ended up more like those Dodge ones. I think the Dodge ones would have been usable in my situation.

Re: French Flatty overview and assessment. Will this one rebuild? Deeside Flatty.

Yes. This is very possible. If I were doing this job again I would be more conservative with the amount cut away.

I'm not saying everything I know. Let me just say there are more interesting...

Re: 1932 clutch issue

But is that extra movement free play? Or is the bearing in contact with the fingers at that position? If the floorboards were in position it would not come up that far.
Try and adjust the length so...

French Flatty overview and assessment. Will this one rebuild? Deeside Flatty.

Hello. Continuing the appraisal of my flathead stash, I have a look at a French Flatty. I bought this one from Deeside as a complete unit. There is evidence of water ingress. How bad is the damage?...

Re: Media blast?

Can you just put the axle stands under the axle, as intended?

Re: Mounting ‘Tubman’ condenser on dome distributor

Try and get the distributor to the position where the points are open. (No continuity to ground). Then refit the coil and check you still have your 6.3 Volts.

The lower voltage reading you are...

Re: 12 volt Regulator NOT Regulating

I still don't think that's a Ford regulator.
The ones I have used look like this:

Re: 1932 clutch issue

I have that setup on my roadster. You just need to make a longer pushrod. You could make the clevis longer by welding a nut onto the end. That may be simpler than extending the rod. Your choice.

Re: Side 5 Lug Bolts

We're talking about the register diameter of the studs here.
Ken, can the drums or hubs with the smaller holes be redrilled to take the larger studs?
It shouldn't be too difficult.

Re: Mounting ‘Tubman’ condenser on dome distributor

If you had the engine turning and you measured zero ohms that means the points are not making contact when they are closed.

Here's my advice:

Carefully remove the distributor.

Re: 39 Frame- Worn wishbone socket

Could you not just use a second lower part as a new upper seat? Bolts in and a couple of decent weld beads would make sure it doesn't move. Slightly longer bolts might be needed.

Can I just...

Re: 59A flathead questions.

Responding to my own post. The 99 motor I have DOES have the rope seal. So I am at a complete loss as to why my 59A which must be a later motor, has the slinger type.

With so much time gone by...

59A Flatty. A good candidate for rebuild? It's full of sludge!

Hello! Welcome to Mart's Garage. In this week's video I turn my attention to the first of my flathead stash. Lets delve into this old 59A flathead and see if it is suitable for rebuild.

Re: Tips for removing axle keys?

Tried grabbing it with Vise grips? Just tapping in inboard should get some movement. Or prying it outboard from the axle tube end.

Re: Notching cylinder for 4” merc crank in a 221

The motor above may have been running more than a 4" crank, and may have had non stock rods. Those reliefs may be more than is needed in this application.
