    Hey ClaudeC, WELCOME to the VFF!!!

    I don't have an answer handy, but I'm sure someone will have the specs for you.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

          1933 v8 Crankshaft/Rod Bearing "Oversized"
          by ClaudeC
          I noticed when looking to purchase replacement bearing that they list standard size plus additional oversized sized. Why are there oversized sizes, Is this to do with the original block size variations?

          Does anyone know a way to separate (delaminate) the many layers of brass main bearing shims that come laminated together when you buy them?

          Babbit recommendations
          by Zimmlitt
          Can anyone recommend a shop to re-pour and line bore model A main bearings in the North East? I have been using the Babbit Pot for a number of years but they are on vacation until the end of March and I would like to get this job started before then. Any recommendations in NH, ME, VT, NY, MA or CT would be appreciated.

          New Waterpump Roller Bearing Issues...
          by Kevin in NJ
          I was measuring the rollers of the bearings for least wear. It appears the rollers for the waterpump front bearing should be .25" in diameter.

          Some original spiral type bearings had about .002" wear.
          A couple of the solid type bearings were about .001"+ wear.
          A couple were right on .250".
          The older stock new bearins were right on.250"

          Help identify
          by Dano
          Hi guys, My first time here. I found this rusty old car on my property in Maine, can't figure out what it is, my brother knows more than I do, says it's maybe a 1935 Ford, can't tell if it is a car or truck, no marques logos etc. Has a large boulder on the hood, so I can't move it. Just curious if anyone can identify it, it will not likely ever be moved....
