  • 1933 ford v8 timming gear

    This gear is a press on, not bolt on as is the model A. What is the procedure of pressing this gear on?

    Claude are you going back with an aluminum gear?
    The best way is to heat it with a propane torch wearing gloves. It takes a fast transition to slap it on while its hot.

      I didn't know they had aluminum gears for this, that is great. I was always suspicious of the fiber gears integrity. For model A's there are aluminum and even brass gears available. Who sells the aluminum timming gears for the early v8's?

          Be SURE to line up the timing mark on the cam & the gear!---Once bought an "unknown" RACIN' Cam, with 2 marks??? Lucky for us, the FIRST try worked! (BRMP-BRUMP-BRUMP!)

            Question for JSC Members on Rearend Gear Sets/ Speedo Turtle
            by Rowdy
            Some time ago I was emailing back and forth with Vince about rearend gear sets. At the time I was getting ready to dis-assemble several rearends in hope of coming up with a good set of used 3.54 gears for Dads coupe. Vince informed me that Ford never made 3.54 gears for the Model A. Curious why the JS clearly shows a turtle for 3.54 gears used in 1929 for coupes only. Can someone please elaborate...

            Timing Gears
            by Roland Farrow
            I replaced my timing gears with new crank gear and a standard size fiber cam gear but there is no backlash and the gears did not slide together easily so there appears to be a slight interference between the teeth. Has anyone else experienced this? What can be done about it? I can't find a source for undersize gears. Would this run in OK?

            1933/34 v8 oil pump gears
            by ClaudeC
            There are two large gears in the bottom portion/cup with screen of the 1933/34 v8 oil pump. One of the gears is attached to the pump shaft, the other gear drops out when dismantling the pump. When installing the second gear back in sinc with the shaft gear, Is there a preferred orientation?

            Fiber Cam Gear
            by DaWizard
            After doing a no load pre fit of the cam to crank gears, with a +.005 fiber gear I have 2 barely noticeable loose spots and both line up with the same few teeth on the crank gear, so I'm gona run it with those spots as the old cam gear was loooooose.

            Now, the question that suddenly struck me is, if the fiber cam gear is to be splashed with oil anyway, why not pre lube it by letting it

            Model A transmission ratios
            by Dennis
            Just thinking about something here and didn't put the math to it because I know there are others much better at it than I am. So ultimately my question is what percent is 2nd gear slower than 3rd?

            Here's what I was thinking, if you take a Model A transmission and turn it around, remove 1st and reverse sliding gear, and the reverse idler, and if it were possible to make a housing for...

            Clanking sound in low gear
            by kevinf
            I was out teaching my 17 year old son how to drive my 1931 Model A roadster. This was his third time out and he has been doing good. Well, coming off of a stop sign, he hit the gas and released the clutch quickly and the car popped forward. It didn't stall but now when it is in 1st/low gear it makes a clanging sound. No sound or issues in 2nd or 3rd gear. The noise only happens after the clutch...

            Distributer back lash
            by Bill in NJ
            Could somebody explain why there is back lash in the distributer ? I would think the pieces would fit so that there is no back lash. Yes I know I am wrong but would like to explain it to me please.

            Cluster Gear Differences
            by Rowdy
            I am getting ready to rebuild the transmission for the delivery sedan. It is a March or April 1929 built car, but still has the case with the machined bearing surfaces and the cluster gear with the permanent spacer. No thrust washers like on the earlier 28 style transmissions I have rebuilt. The only good cluster gear I have is a later one with the removable bearing spacer. Is there anything to look...

            by pikalpha
            Hey everyone. Thanks for taking a moment to read my post. I was needing some help identifying the parts I need to replace in a steering sector of a 1933 Ford coupe.

            As the topic implies, I have a 1933 Ford coupe that has some pieces replaced by the previous owner with 1941? Ford parts. I am replacing gears in the steering sector because of the amount of play in the steering. The...
