Hey guys. I've been on a lot of different forums but have always appreciated this community's comraderie. I'm glad to be here. I'm on a steep learning curve trying to get a plan together. I've cleared out all my other projects and would like some advice/direction. I scored on a truckload of parts last year including a body, tons of wheels and an "A" front end. Got most of the metal work done on my 27 body and the body's subframe since then. The plan was to put the body on my grandfather's Z'ed T chassis. I got '28 wheels and made adaptors, and started on a front Z bracket...then I changed my mind. I bought an 81a with a 3 speed and a 59a all for $125. Then I just traded a rifle for a superb model A chassis last week. After some research, I found out that this '37 tranny will bolt to the "A" torque tube...I ordered a v8 clamshell. Here's some pics. Looks like both front springs are reverse eye and the extra axle has split wishbones with rod ends installed. I spent some time with the Model T spring on the hydraulic press last year to lower it. Some guys use them on "A's"? The internet said that this is the desirable passenger car 3 speed? Looks to be in pretty good shape. The 81 stamped motor is complete but has a broken piston and is full of water. The 59A had a missing nut on a rod (found in pan) and spun a bearing. The crank isn't too too bad. It's currently at .060 overbore but overall looks great. It's been bored at .040, then .060 according to what's stamped on the deck. Measuring the bores verifies that. All the rods are 8BA...same stroke? Later rods? I have a bunch of '33/34 wheels (17") I'd might box the frame on a jig but don't want to channel the body or Z the frame. I read a post about Elrod using '32 perches to retain the mechanical brakes with a dropped axle? There is no budget per say, but I'd really like to challenge myself to not overbuild. I've done that on projects and they just aren't fun anymore. I'd like to "repair" the engine for a 3000 rpm max driver. What would you guys build with this pile of parts? I built that '55 a while ago, I'm just now getting back into cars.
