Re: Hayes wheels - what would you do?

Steve, I believe that it was electroplated, I missed some of the rust inside the clincher. The coating did not cover the rust, I'll be a little more careful next time,

Re: Hayes wheels - what would you do?

John, FYI, Oshkosh Plating Technologies zinc coated 5 rims for me for $125, about a year ago. Their located close to the EAA grounds, I sandblasted them before I took them in. Its easier to change tires, you dont have to worry about scratching the rims with the irons.

Re: Dairyland Tin Lizzie's Model T University

Looks like good weather to hang out in a bodyshop tomorrow. I still have some cleaning up to do yet. If you can make it bring any available oil pans along, Jim Rodell Sr is bringing his K R Wilson pan jig so people can check pans. Itll be a good day to talk Ts.

Re: F100 transmissions

I have been doing some homework with the #s I have. Turns out what I have is from a 64' with a 128" wheelbase. I have to find out if I have a wide or close ratio yet. We have a few older yards around so I'll have to start looking,

F100 transmissions

I have a '58 ford pickup I'm trying to get back on the road. It has a 312 y block and a 3 spd topload with a Hurst shifter. The input bearing is growling pretty bad and the hardening is worn off the countershaft. From what I gather the toploads didn't come out until '63. It has the big input shaft, ...

Re: Let's Play "What's that sound?"

Pull the cam and check it between two dead centers on a lathe. Use a dial indicator on the middle bearing surface. I had one sound just like that, it was bent about 25 thou in the center

Re: What are these holes in the cylinder wall of a Ford Special motor?

I once saw an early hit and miss engine with an exhaust port at the base of the stroke as well as in the head. They called it a fluted cylinder. The exhaust note had a studder to it.
