    Belt replacement

    The old one is broke but it matched the new one, the bracket the generator slides on still has about 1/2 inch of space left. How hard is it to remove the fill tube?

    Belt replacement

    Ya I loosened the bolt, but it looks like the generator is hitting the oil fill tube and not letting the generator go far enough to put the belt on.

    Belt replacement

    I'm trying to get the belt on the generator but can't get the generator to move any closer to the engine to get the belt on.

    Belt replacement

    Im trying to replace the fan belt, but cant get the generator close enough to the engine to slip the belt on. Its about an inch shy. Also not sure if this is to be expected on this old of a car but there is so much oil caked up on oil pan and in between engine and generator.

    bringing flathead back from dead...maybe

    Thats the biggest problem for me as far as putting in a v8, I dont know how to weld. I do think the flatties are cool with the multiple carbs and headers and what not. Not sure how good the 727 and t5 work behind them but would prolly go that route.

    Im sure its been in the family at least since the 60's and I got it from my dad 5 years ago. He had a 6 volt battery in it.

    I noticed the battery cables have been changed and are 4 ga. Should I go with bigger ones? I had a shop manual for the car just gotta find it. I do all my own maintenance and repairs on my cars. Just nothing this old.

    If I cant get it going, I was just going to swap in a v8. Not sure if rebuilding the flathead would be cheaper than a swap or not. Ya mine ran about 5 or 6 years ago. Not sure if mine has an oil filter or what it looks like.
  11. So finally decided to see if I could get flathead running again. I bought a new fan belt and some MM oil to put in cylinders. I noticed there's coolant sitting on top of the thermostat housing, assuming I need a new gasket or maybe radiator hose. I dont want to replace a lot of stuff trying to get it to run in case it doesnt. so hopefully I can use all the ignition stuff thats on it. The spark plugs look kind of rusty, going to spray some blaster on them before I pull them out.

    Parts for disc brake conversion

    One last thing... ill prolly go with an explorer rear with discs. I was going to run a dual master cylinder, not sure what I need as far as proportioning valve or residual valves or if I need anything else to make it work with my brake pedal. Im looking on speedway and see alot of different stuff.
