  • Sarah's new engine............

    As most of you know, Sarah blew her head gasket a few days back and instead of putting in a new gasket, I've decided to just put in a whole new engine. Larry said he should be able to fit it in, there's nothing Larry can't do!!!!

              I think if you painted it the original Ford Green & Black, restamped the correct numbers on it, no one would notice it's not stock. But looks like the better part of a weekend to put that one in. LOL

                Correct engine colour
                by Hoogah
                Yes, that’s how it’s spelt! My engine rebuilder is almost finished and I’m looking for the correct engine paint. It’s not that easy! Which of these two photos is closest to correct colour?

                Engine pans, yes or no?
                by Curly
                I haven’t been running engine pans. I got a set recently thinking I wanted to add them. After dry fitting them I’m wondering if I even want them on.
                1. Keep engine cleaner.
                2. Engine cooling, although I haven’t heard any conclusive evidence this is factual.
                3. Electrical ground, but this is not an issue for me.

                Do you run them? Why?

                Constructing engine/transmission stand for running engine
                by ClaudeC
                Want to build wooden engine transmission stand for test running my 1933 v8 engine.
                Stand will have radiator, battery, small external gas tank. Need some plans or ideas for constuction. Tentative plane to use 4 by 4 wood frame on caster/rollers. The engine front has supports where I will place the biscuit rubber absorbers, not sure how to support the back, maybe transmission clamped to wood ...

                Unique Engine Number
                by 30Coupe
                My engine number is *A2565731* but immediately below, "F5100" is stamped in the lower left and lower right (two places) on the engine number plate/boss. I can find absolutely no reference to this "F5100" stamping. Has anyone else either seen it or know what it is? Thanks! -Joe

                I need serious experienced help with an engine problem
                by Ray Horton
                This engine, with only 4000 miles on it since rebuild, has always overheated and locked up when shut down after overheating, which is usually when driven at 45 or less for 30 minutes or more. (This did not and does not happen when driven under 35 and/or just around town for less than 45 minutes). I thought I had this problem fixed. But apparently not.

                Here is the history: On 3/16/14 I...

                Geneology of an A Engine
                by Denis4x4
                As an old hot rodder, I never consider a car is ever finished. To that point, here are the modifications that I've made to the A engine in my roadster over a 26 year period.

                The engine in my avatar was built in May of 1931 and rebuilt in August of 1992. At the 2015 Speedster Reunion, this engine in my Zipper roadster registered 60HP @ 3500 RPM's at the rear wheels. It's been in and...

                I learned something new today
                by copgib
                Most of you know the story of my 1930 Model A. It was a barn find that had a siezed up engine. The seller which was my brothers church friend sold it to me and when he heard the engine was siezed, he offered me another engine that was in a 1929 Model A Basket case. I was told it had been rebuilt a few years earlier. My mechanic at the time confirmed it looked like it had been rebuilt after checking...

                English Ford Pilot engine
                by pooch
                gday, I am curious as to when the Poms started building the 21 stud engine and a few details .

                I know they never changed to 24 stud , and had a lot of surplus engines over at war's end, so they designed a car to use the engine, which became the pilot, a car that in size and shape very similar to a 36 USA Ford sedan .

                The only difference in the engine casting that i can readily...
