    So I sold my ‘32 ford pick up on here in spring of 2016 to finance a tudor sedan.
    Found one on here, made the deal & it was delivered last spring.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The first major issue was getting the 3, 94 carbs set up properly & tuned. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Next was getting the brakes to work properly with the Buick drums, ford hubs & backing plates. I couldn’t have done this without the wealth of knowledge about this I found on here & Tommy from Tyngsboro re arching my shoes![​IMG][​IMG]

    After setting the toe, getting the timing dialed in & fixing a sunk float. I was finally able to put some miles on it & enjoy it with my family.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    After having a core plug in the back of the pass cyl. Head starting to leak I decided to pull the engine, tear it down & go through it.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Love your Deuce, love your 'Rocket'...
    Sold my Triumph, empty pocket.
    That's a solid looking '32. What kind of transmission and rear end? (is the speedo inop because of the absence of a cable?)

  24. So you are replacing the existing engine? with a built '56 or did I miss something. Love the car!

    I took the 303 to a machine shop with plans to rebuild; because I couldn’t find a 324 local. I ended up scoring a stock running ‘56
    324 with low miles. So plans changed

    Picked up a ‘56 324 olds rocket from Ray Helger yesterday. I could have spent all weekend @ his shop. Super nice guy, he & his fathers collection of early fords, hot rods & Parts is incredible![​IMG][​IMG]

  30. Sweet! Now, what's the plan? have you rolled it over yet? Pull the plugs, roll by hand and see if it goes all the way around freely. Remember that 371 I bought and the idiot started it with a frozen valve that ended up thru the top of the piston....bad story for sure!:rolleyes::rolleyes:
    Your 303 intake runners may be smaller than the big ports on those #10 heads. I had enough meat on mine to match it to the head runners.(not the one in my avatar)
