Man the flathead really scoots along!!
nice car, tell Michael I said hi...
Im diggen that buckboard as well!
Awesome Roadster mate! Just wondering, any pics of the brake pedal assembly?
Hey Ryan, was showing this to my Dad earlier today (not sure how i have missed this thread in the past?) and he was wondering if that panel in the background is one he got for your Dad a few years back (when my Dad says a few years back think mybe 30...) it is the white with the red and green stripes, off possibly Don Elliotts old Camaro rac car???
Oh yeah, your 32, sweet. spot on. perfect. i dont think there is anything else i could say that hasnt already been said!
Wish it was mine.......Bea_utiful!!!!!!
MMM DIRT DRAGS!! AND BROKEN BITS!!
Now. How'd you get all those bolts undone without cutting the wire? That's pretty clever.
And now for my next trick....
Heavier rear bones or lighter right foot?
Haha, love it.
Amazing trick on those bolts undoing.
Ryan - You need to take a leaf out of Lowsquires Bones Strengthening Handbook....... this is what he did for my ride.
Jeez do you really wanna follow that up?
Makes my damage an easy fix, I made a synchro block dissappear and then reappear at the bottom of the box half its size and chipped a tooth off the input shaft and that happened just driving up there.....
Too much mondo HP/TQ for the firebreathin flathead !!
I don't think those wafer thin pressed steel wishbones are much cop, but it was being used & abused at Chopped - nice work
1000 miles of roadtesting in one beer infused weekend ..... Priceless .
Yep weak bones I'm headed for the farm tonight for another diff and a pair of '36 pickup bones, get up to the maldon hill climb for a look this weekend.
Im not thinkin the bones were the problem,or at least the main problem, the torque tube bolts coming out seems to be the problem, were they not long enough? the wishbones are just to suport the rear end, the torque tube takes all the torque hence the name. seems like the bolts pulled out and then messed up the bones.
Did the threads in the centersection just strip straight out?
yep pulled the threads straight out!
The bolt's were factory ones with plenty of length also when I checked another '32 rear the bones had been welded up in the same spot were mine broke.
This made be think the bones went first.
Well the '36 rear is great with the heavy bones! I have been driving hard and broke an axle key the other day. Lucky both the hub and axle were in great shape so I lapped them in again and used shaft Loctite on the taper for a better grab. Back to driving the wheels off of it!!
Found this '34 tourer stainless rear window in the old mans garden shed!! So maybe one day I'll get the top done.
Cheers guys! I also tilted the screen back some more.
Well here are a few updates from the last 6 months!
Some racing from Chopped.
Some damage from Chopped!
Now back on the road with a new dash.
Nice update brother..
Dash looks killer! Great job on this one Ryan
^^^X2. What's the surround and the brand of guages, Ryan?
It's a Pierce Arrow from Alchemy on here with 1934 cadillac gauges.
