If you take the weight off wheel you can move little at time and tighten.
Same amount on each side brings wheel out camber.
What I look for is...
Check your cam timing and maybe get a good stock cam.
You don't seem to want to listen to anyone.
You have spark on not. It really doesn't mean shit how it ran 4 years ago.
Go to speedway and buy a...
I would guess the wheel are in toward the top.
If you put even amount of shims both places should bring wheel out.
Try 1/4 first shot see what...
When testing for spark remove the spark plug wire from dist. cap and hold 1/2" from medal surface. If you test at spark plug it only sparks at one...
I had a 49 303v8 and was always taking the top cover off carb.
The filter is in fuel pump glass remove empty and install.
When removing carb...
I have had 2 c4 that didn't shift right with flathead.
You need the kick down to shift later to 2nd gear.
I shift mine manual with Locker for...
I guess its a Ford rear end 1949 thur 1956
For all the time you been working on car you could have learned how to set points.
That big engine is not a high rpm one, points are ok put the...
Did you ever hear it run.
If not the is a hole in bell housing and ball that top dead center.
When they line up that's tdc
You could be 180...
When you find TDC and marks line up.
TDC both valves maybe closed. Turn half turn.
Now you are on bottom of #1 cylinder.
Now as you turn the...
If you look at the switch in post #2 less then half in being used.
It has some adjustment for motor speed high and low.
To cool this you need...
I think if you get a 1ohm resister with about 10 watt you will be ok.
6 volts and guessing 6 amps, ohms law would be 1 ohm resister.
now add 1...
I would guess its for the mustang II ifs.
I have a 48 and when made there were a lot of about 3" holes in frame.
I guess its to go behind cover...
I think those ign resisters will take 3 amps, but if you are still running to hot put 2 resisters in parallel and need more put one in series....
If it ran good what carb did you have when it was running good.
When it started to run rich, may only have had a sticking float needle valve....
If you get a ignition resister 1.5 ohms they are white ceramic used to reduce current.
If you were to drop 3 volts that would cool it down....
I have a bell housing like post#6 and measured the pins center to center and little less then 12 5/16" when drilled may have been 12.300
If the half bell housing bolts to the block you may have a 6 cylinder trans case they are not the same as v8.
If you get TDC turning to right,
the way engine turns.
1 back off intake should be closed now go to tdc valve should start to open.
I think you have a valve timing problem.
When coming up TDC intake should start to open.
Then next TDC the exhaust should start to open.
For the record mopar was the first for hydraulic brakes,
also 62 chevy pu had hydraulic clutch.
Old school is no air bags,no electric ign.no...
You could go with hlylick slave cylinder for clutch, push or pull check Speedway.
If you drop the tie rod from box and turn my hand see how close it comes to frame should be close both sides. Are the tires hitting fenders.
If you have a carb engine the sender goes on intake.
don't put it on cylinder head.
cooler water enters the head first.
If you are not loosing water, I would think your fuel pump is leaking gas in pan.
Also is oil getting trapped in valve cover.
If your sender is in the head ,put it in the intake. I think out of radiator its cooler so not reading right.
I would keep the 40 with the 40 frame, looks like the center is already for any trans you want. It also looks good in the back, that were they...
If you are keeping the orginal trans and rearend best go with 1940 to 1962 235 bolts up and uses front mount,reuse yours.
