while I am looking at all the manuals to find the answer, would someone please tell me where the hand crank spring goes?
Is it suppose to be inside the bushing?
It has a small hole on crank
got it thank you very much Paul
No part of the spring should be inside of the bushing...
But on the other hand the original bushing is 5 star cuss word to get out and change, even on a good day
When I get one where the spring wants to creep into the bush...I go get a fender washer with the hole size the same as the crank...grind the OD of the washer to have a flat side and be a 'D' (to clear the radiator lower tank) and then spray it black and paste that puppy in place... the open spring end then rides against the washer and does not try to walk to the other side of the radiator
Another view of the spring sticking into the little hole in the crank.
Sometimes the hole becomes invisible because it's filed with dirt or paint.
I recently had the problem of the spring slipping into the bushing.
As George and Steve say - you may need a washer.
After a bit of fiddling I found a metric washer that was perfect.
A spindle washer is perfect, just knock off the tab and your still using a Ford part, Bob
Steve, it looks like that nut on the front oil pan support is loose.
Cap screw. Yes, it was loose when the picture was taken. I don't remember why.
That why is 'cause that 7/16" x 7/8" crank case front bearing cap screw on brass cars are drilled for wire, like the cap screws on the universal joint.
Close up of '15 original photo showing wire:
Later years used a lock washer under that cap screw, which is same as p/n 3008 cyl. head outlet connection screw, 7/16"x 15/16".
