The Jalopy Journal
Thanks Mike, best HAMB thread ever!
loving the Dora The Explorer Heads:)
Best thread I have seen for ages! keep them coming please, this stuff is GOLD!
Yowzers! looks great J.B., amazing effort!
Absolutely loving this build! Very inspirational. Keep working and posting pics.
Looking good! Very tidy.
Great build! I have a 21 stud as a spare, it came with the firing order on the heads, I believe these we're used in Ford Pilots into the 50's?
Do a search for 'Roadster Build' by 'Chris' should have all the info you need.
I would guess the same as above, don't look tall enough to be 7.50's IMO
I agree with above, $3K would buy you alot of 'spare' flathead rear ends.
Will find out I guess, the draglink is at a good angle (almost parallel) & the box is mounted slightly further back than the stock model A box...
looks great! nice profile.
haha, that's my pup Henry Ford, he likes the camera, but not much of a guard dog.
I did the press method with my front spring. The eye to eye width is now a bit wide & the shackles are pointing pretty much straight down. Should...
Car looks absolutely incredible!!!
I just went through the whole thread again, what suspension mods did you make?
It sits perfect!
Hi Chrisman, the 42-48 rear ends are approx 1.5" wider than the earlier ones, only really a problem if you are running fenders.
Wow Archie31, that looks neat, I am quite partial to that look myself, here is mine:
Adam, your roadster looks great, have had some pics of it in my inspiration file for a while.
40's orforties, either way
Yeah me to, although the top part looks pretty cool too!
looks great! keep the updates coming.
thanks General, the trans crossmember is 40's pickup.
Not 32 frames but they both have 32 X members (& no 5 speeds, coilovers, disc brakes...)
great pics as always Jimmy
thanks Greg, recognise that front axle? I have an undrilled one I think I will use, but it has been great for mockup.
Here's mine, build thread in my signature:
Hi Midroad, I will be doing my own headers with stainless flextube (see pics), stock exhaust manifolds don't fit with this setup.
will do Ollin...as soon as its finished haha.
yeah I like the look, I think it is correct for a 40's build, If you look through the old pics from that time there were tons of guys running...
