The Jalopy Journal
Yep, Tom Bay
I built one up and used 7.5 side gears.
Very sad indeed, RIP
Hope for the best!
Found a copy on ebay and have it on the way.
Does anyone have a copy of the Feb 1985 Street Rodder magazine or a good copy of the article in it "New Axles for Early Ford Rearends"?
I have a...
He helped me research my V8 QC conversion to 9 inch axles and let me use his shop to do the work. Not many people will do that!
This type of tool was used by tooling when I worked at Boeing. The bottom plate was referred to as a drill block and the switchable bushings were...
Yes, I was somewhat surprised at the lack of published information. That's why I started this thread, hell of a guy!
I did a search and found an announcement of the auction of his shop, but nothing on the man himself. Thought some might be interested in Jelly!...
Seems to be working now.
Looks like the Ford Barn is down again.
Well, looks like some have had good success with redrill, I still prefer the aftermarket axles. If you intend to race it, it may be a requirement.
Pinto used a cable clutch setup, that is the oldest one I'm aware of. But that's early 70s, not 60s.
I used a 34 Ford frame back in the 60s for a B/A.
I've not had good luck with redrilled axle bolt patterns and much prefer aftermarket axles (If you can afford them).
I always liked the look of the straight axle, but whatever you like.
Yep, the low gears are an issue for sure. The gears can be changed out, but just realize the cost involved so you know the final cost you are...
Yep, not working for me.
Does the Green Book diagram help any?
LOL, just started working for me!! Gordon, you must have lead the way.
Is the Ford Barn down again? I can't connect computer or phone this morning.
The older Ford brakes work ok, but they are difficult to get set up. Self-energizing brakes are far superior. The switch over requires new...
The short shoe does to the front on self-energizing brakes, but it is the other way around on non- self-energizing brakes. The long shoe goes to...
The switch from pos ground to neg ground had to do with the use of more and more electrics in cars. Transistors and other devices prefer the neg...
Well, it's back at it! Interesting day on the Barn for sure. Here is the other screen you get.
Doesn't sound like a problem to me (at least not yet). I would just watch it for a while. The IR guns are a good idea. Don't go to a cooler...
Seems to be working fine now.
Around 64 at Wichita KS. Being in the center of the lower states almost all of the big names would stop at the Wichita track on their way back...
Did you try again? I was having issues earlier, but it just started working for me.
