Re: 34 crankshaft nut wrench size

I have some that are 1-1/8" but also have one at least that is closer to 1-3/8". It's a 5/8" thread so if a standard bolt has been used it could be 15/16".

Re: 37 steering box

I've not done it, but I think there are 3 holes, two of which line up. It might be that it will become obvious once offered into place.

Maybe???

Re: Electric fan over a belted fan

I like electric fans as long as they are:
1, not overly "on show".
2, not too noisy.

I have 4 early fords and they all have electric fans. My observations are:
1, you hardly ever need to use...

Re: 46 crab dist tune/replace

Bubba's taking it easy these days, you'd probably do better to try local (within Canada) first.

Re: How to repair damage to a deck

What would happen if you drilled and tapped for a pipe plug right on the fire ring line. Then fit a plug and cut/file it off flush with the deck?

Just sort of thinking out loud. From experience,...

Re: No oil pressure on new build

If I had an engine that was rebuilt 30 years ago I'd probably tear it down and reassemble it just for peace of mind. All that lube that was put on back then is probably dried up and gummy now.

Re: Pitman arm question

If you don't have a clash situation due to split bones being where the pitman arm wants to be, a 32 arm will fit the F2 box.

Re: Brain Fade!

And when you build a fresh engine and put it in the recipient vehicle, don't forget to put some oil in it. Don't ask why I mention this.

Re: Pressure plate bolt torques

I just did some 59A ones up and used no more than 20 lb ft. It felt a bit heavy to me, rather than light. They are a 5/16 coarse thread and can and will break if overtorqued.

Re: Shackle Stud Replacement

I used to do the removable perches and springs using the vise as a press. On my 33 I took a vise that wasn't bolted to the bench and used that to press the bushes into my rear axle perches.
