      I'd think it's Ford, as the ribs changed at least 4 times that I know of. I guess the draftsmen do that to keep busy.

          How bad is the crack? I wouldn't be surprised to find half the Model A's with at least a small crack in the housing. I think it would be OK, and the way we drive today, it should outlive us. That said, I still look for no cracks, but they are getting hard to find.

          I would say this one is bad,it shoots out from a bolt hole to a mount. I've got a few more I need to check for my build,I also have that crack repaired one.I'm more curious as to who made it and what it was used on..

          If it's CRACKED, it wouldn't even make a GOOD Garden Bell (DONK!)

        Flywheel run out
        by Great Lakes Greg
        I did a search on this subject and ran across theory that the shims were not necessarily needed between the top of the housing and the engine block, if a gasket was not used. I don't have a magnetic mount gauge to check the run out, so I was going to fab a fixed mount kind of tool and use a feeler gauge. I have kind of an idea for this in my head, that I can bolt this tool to the flywheel, and I could...

        Fly wheel housing
        by spencerj13
        My 1931 flywheel housing was cracked so I welded it. I can not get the flywheel to flywheel housing difference to less than .005. The greatest difference is .016. Do I need to replace the flywheel housing or is this measurement not extremely important? I have already have two shims in the top bolts....

        Painting the Flywheel housing
        by JDupuis
        Today I painted a flywheel housing for a motor I'm building.
        Thought I'd share, where I do and don't apply paint.
        The unpainted areas are for better grounding with our Positive 6v ground.
        Hope this helps.

        Flywheel Housing Cracks
        by JDupuis
        Posted here is a typical flywheel housing that is cracked.
        I am posting this picture for the benefit of all.
        Remember to loosen the rear the rear mounting bolts when lifting the front of the engine, as this may be the result.
        I am editing this post....Very Important!.
        This cracking is also caused by “not” placing shims between the flywheel housing and the block, where the...

        Engine-flywheel housing shims
        by Tim Warren
        I am FINALLY reinstalling my rebuilt engine. Engine in; drivetrain/tanny all in. There is no way to fit the shims that fit at the throttle linkage. The housings are totally mated. Suggestions? Thanks in advance.

        Flywheel Surface Depth
        by OTTAWAED
        What is the correct factory distance between the flywheel face and the clutch cover plate mounting surface. Brattons states 1.123 in in their catalogue. I measured 1.179 on an old flywheel which, of course may have been altered. Ed

I have a lot of work to do on this car,mechanically which I can do,actually more issues than I thought it was going to have. It has a cracked flywheel housing which I am looking for...

        Model A lightened flywheel profile.
        by DaWizard
        Ok, after doing an extensive site search, I have come up blank, so asking here.

        I need some type of a drawing with dimensions to give to my machinist with the lightened flywheel profile. Everyone says "lighten the flywheel" but I can't find a drawing to dictate where and how much meat to remove.

        Thrill me and produce me a picture I can copy and print for the machinist.
