  1. When first popping the hub from the taper I leave the nut on, but loose so you don't swell up the threads and not be able to get the nut back on. Once the taper fit is popped apart, piece of cake.
  2. You either pull the motor or rear end and torque tube which is the normal way. You have to get the rear of the car way up so you can pull rear end and spring backwards from underneath the car. You will have to pull the interior carpet so you can pull the pan from on top of the tranny so you can remove the tranny. Its not a two hour job!
  3. Stock they have weak points but there are a couple of people that rebuild them and take the weak spots out
  4. Sounds like an intake valve not closed, engine sat for awhile?
  5. Like any old car, many upgrades have occurred and learned that makes them driveable. Where most people get nervous is that they will never drive like a modern car that has all modern conveniences which the older cars don't have. I love driving my older cars and the feeling I get.
  6. It seems it is epidemic that people say they do xyz and when pressed they admit they don't. How about telling us who this is so someone else doesn't deal with an incompetent and liar engine builder.
  7. If the wire broke all nuts have a CHANCE of coming undone. If you use cotter pins on each one, one does not depend on the other.
  8. Some are easy some resist depending on what is rusted. Pull the nuts off and squirt pb blaster/ wd 40 around the studs. GENTLY start working around the edges. Aluminum heads are much tougher.
  9. Why take the chance? Do it right the first time.
  10. The engine was rebuilt and it had 7 bent rods in it. Drives like a champ after replacing one complete valve guide that came loose after rebuild. When resting it sits in Old retired Ford dealership that has had the front display area rebuilt like it was in the 30s. Thanks for asking.
  11. I don't know if it is intake or exhaust that cracked but I have many for sale Doug Johnson #23
  12. Club coupe Zephyr body tag # 06h77-2563 rolling shell for sale. comes with a pair of fender skirts and the grills have no broken ends on them, still bolted in. No interior except dash. No paperwork. Appears to have been upside down because roof is rusty and dented.Putting it here first to try and not have it turned into street rod.

  13. I believe that is the stock location for your speedo. Some overdrive axles had it on the outside of (I believe) right axle housing.
  14. now is the time, much easier to remove without pulling complete rear end out otherwise.
