Re: question about exhaust/intake manifold stud bolt material ???

Allen, The studs and bolts shown in the photo above are temporary bolt/studs. The new studs I made, have full thread engagement. I will use double nuts to lock them into place.

Re: question about exhaust/intake manifold stud bolt material ???

Henry, Good suggestion. I will look at adding a brace. I had some old US made 6 inch grade five bolts. So I cut them off and rethreaded them on the lathe, then I chased the threads with a die nut. Turned out nice. From the input above I think grade five will work OK. Dennis, I tried turning the clam...

Re: question about exhaust/intake manifold stud bolt material ???

Frank, Acording to what you said, I would want the bolt to fail before the holes in the block. The grade 5 probably would fail before the block. The grade 8 probably would be more likely to "tear" the threads out, than a grade 5. Mark, I was also taught that a course threads in the casting and fine ...

question about exhaust/intake manifold stud bolt material ???

I am installing the dual exhaust manifold on the speedster project engine. Since I have been unable to find 3/8-24 double ended studs 5-1/2 inch long I am going to make them myself. My question is what material is best. grade 5 or grade 8. I will be taking a 6 inch bolt and cutting off the head and ...

Re: for sale, Stevens Tool Catalogs. second run ready for sale

For those unfamiliar with Stevens tools, here are a very few, poor quality, pictures of some of the things shown in the catalog. There are 80 pages of goodies shown in the catalogs... I have found many of the items in the catalog at swap meets or flea markets due to the fact that I had a Stevens cat...

SOLD OUT, Stevens Tool Catalogs. second run

I have the second run of the Stevens tool catalogs for sale. The first run was well received and the feedback was good as to the quality of the printing. I have 25 catalogs for sale from this printing run. The catalogs are 7 X 10 inches and have 80 pages. The Stevens tools are as good as or better t...

for sale pair of original friction shocks

I have a nice pair of original friction shocks. They would be very nice on a speedster project. I do not see a name on them, but it could be covered by paint. Since "patina" is a sought after look by many folks, I am not cleaning them up. I see nothing wrong with them. I have no project for them to ...

Re: Improved cars, actual first date of production?

Your photo shows a 1926-27 Improved model. I can see the 26-27 style fenders and windshield frame in the photo. The Improved models start August 1925. Your engine date will be an "early" 1926 model. There was no serial numbers on the frames till Dec 12, 1925. There are several details that are uniqu...

Re: 1919-1927 Completely Rebuilt Ford Model T Generators With 90 day warranty!

I'm also interested in the 12 volt conversions. I assume you mean 12 volt starters.??

I'm getting ready to put a starter in the speedster project. A 12 volt starters would be great.

Re: Update#2 first batch ready :Stevens Tool Catalog. any interest in a run of reprints ??

Bill, I have the same problem. My old eyes do not see as well either. The colors and print are very close to the original. It is actually a little better than the original to read. The old 90 to 100 year old catalog was really in poor shape.

The next run should be in soon.

Re: Update#2 first batch ready :Stevens Tool Catalog. any interest in a run of reprints ??

Will mail the last catalog tomorrow. So far everyone seems to like the quality. So I have ordered the second run of catalogs. I will be doing them in runs of 25 at a time. That way I will not be overloaded with orders. When I have the catalogs in hand, (probably next week )I will list them in the cl...

Re: Did any of the Ford 21 inch wood wheels come with loose lugs looks like maybe early Chevrolet, But?

I will agree with Mark. I am not home with my library, but I do not remember ever reading about or hearing about any removable lugs associated with Ford 21 inch wheels. There are removable lugs for the Hayes 30 x 3-1/2 inch wheels and also TT rear wheels. I have done considerable wheel research on t...
