  1. Why take the chance? Do it right the first time.
  2. 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.
  3. I don't know if it is intake or exhaust that cracked but I have many for sale Doug Johnson #23
  4. 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.

  5. I believe that is the stock location for your speedo. Some overdrive axles had it on the outside of (I believe) right axle housing.
  6. now is the time, much easier to remove without pulling complete rear end out otherwise.
  7. Need badly for 1919 Oakland six cylinder Remy Electric starter Model 701-A. Please contact Doug Johnson 317 644 9578 or dougj_nsi@sbcglobal.net Thanks
  8. I have had very good results from Advanced also, not fast or cheap but very good.
  9. I could use the 42 -48 one for my 42 L/C cabriolet. I will be at Hershey and have three spots in red field40-42
  10. two door coupe but won't fit the standards you want.
  11. What are the dates. I have an original 38 coupe not perfect by any stretch but two time AACA HPOF award winner.
  12. I just looked at my 38 and don't see any logo on it when it is bolted in the car.
  13. Just like you suggested had the son send facebook message because I can use also.
  14. they have very good record with v8 and 4 cylinders but struggled with mine
  15. they rebuilt mine a couple of years ago, they were months late, didn't reuse stock bolts like I asked, heads leaked first time I started, pulled spark plug threads when pulling plug out, one lifter,valve assembly came out and cracked a head, but they were on budget.
  16. Looking for the 6 whiskers for my 42. Do you have any spares for sale?
  17. I have an original 38 coupe located near Indy. Motor has been out but interior except for carpet is all original. Original paint, What are you looking for?
  18. My 1946 National service manual shows clearance for rods .0015-.003 total diametrical .010-.022 total sideplay Crank clearance .001-.003 end thrust .002-.006.
  19. since you went and met him do you have a phone #?
  20. I looked and couldn't find it, what he asking for 38 Columbia?
  21. The flathead probably was bolted to the v12 tranny. Pull the floor up and you will find the serial # above the inspection plate. With minor differences any v12 will bolt back in. I have quite a selection of parts and engines if you need together and apart. M41 L/C cabriolet has a merc flathead in it and it drives just fine so get it running with that before time runs out. My 38 I inherited when dad passed away and he never drove it.
