  2. Didn't get my clutch linkage done but i did find time to clean and rebuild my carb:

    Also noticed that I needed to hear and move my clutch/brake pedals. Brake had to go in so that it would clear the bell housing, and the clutch needed to go out to clear the Column

  3. Also mocked up my generator and fan pulley in order to get an idea of fan/radiator clearance. Pleased to say that the fan is no higher than my little banger fan

    I like this build very much! Keep driving it until the V8 is finished and then plop the body on and go! I'm an ole punk rocker too so it's good to see like minded people doing the same thing.

  5. Kickass man! Im younger but nothing beats the old stuff (cars and music).
    You hit the nail on the head with driving it till the very end. It helps curb my lack of patience

  6. Time to do the ol' generator swap. Got the napa pn for a ford 12v generator. Turns out the damn warehouse near my place had two of them in stock.

    I easily could have just thrown it on there and been done but I really wanted to make it look like factory

    Fuck...oh well, close enough (I'll just put the shitty side on the bottom)

    Is this a typical 8ba gennie mount?

    Gas and kerosene works great to clean up parts

    Time to put it back together. I don't know why, but I get a lot of satisfaction out of my outdoor press. I have to be very picky about what goes in the garage so keeping some stuff on the side of my shed to reduce the clutter really helps.

    And here she is mounted

    What's the part number on the generator? I like that little trick!

    Is that fan going to clear a radiator?

    You can get a generator for a Ford tractor that has a tach drive.

  11. It's no higher than my stock fan so I would hope so

    Hopefully it's just the angle of the photo, but it looks like it's over the crossmember, where the radiator sits, not so much the height being an issue.
     
  13. Your talking length-wise...

    Yes it will be tight. Some rudimentary measuring made it look like it would fit but I can always make little brackets and put the radiator out a little bit.

    Couldn't quite Jesse-James it, but I think it still turned out pretty good.

    Looks great! But try some brake clean aerosol for cleaning parts, gas & kerosene is a fire danger. The brake clean spray cans work excellent. Or, but it in bulk and use one of these refillable sprayers

  22. Thanks Blues. I agree there is a safety hazard. With that said I only have a small 1 gallon cleaning bucket that I keep away from my house to clean parts in.

  23. Interesting thread. I'm very near trying to fit an 8BA into my Model A chassis so I'm following along here...

    That said, I wouldn't use brake cleaner anywhere near something that I had plans on welding. It leads to a VERY nasty chemical reaction that can mess you up in a hurry. Google "TIG welding brake cleaner" for details. To sum it up, the chemical in brake cleaner added to high heat and the gasses used when welding can result in the production of hydrogen chloride or phosgene.

    "According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), phosgene is an industrial chemical used to make plastics and pesticides. It does not occur naturally and was used extensively in World War I as a choking agent. It is poisonous at room temperature and can cause coughing, burning in the throat and eyes, blurred vision, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, and pulmonary edema. Some of the more serious effects can show up 48 hours after exposure, and those include difficulty breathing, low blood pressure, and heart failure. Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are reported permanent side effects of phosgene exposure. In other words, if it doesn’t kill you, it’s going to alter your health significantly."

    I'll admit I may sometimes overlook safety procedures in the shop, I may not ALWAYS have on the correct eyewear, etc, but this isn't something I mess with.

  26. Had to follow through with my promise, happy to see that my clutch linkage is finally complete (less a few pieces of hardware)

  28. Great timing on the clutch post. I was just saying on my build thread I wasn't sure how the clutch linkage was supposed to work, now I know! Thanks

  29. Great to hear. And ya, I was scratching my head up until
    I started messing with it. They make a million clutch release shafts so hunt down the one that will get you closest. I think mine is off an f1 truck
