      A & B engine differences info
      by Mitch
      'What's are the differences in the Ford A, B and C engines?'


      The 1932 V-8 was introduced as the 'Ford Model 18.' The four cylinder model was designated the 'Model B.' Although the V-8 was a national sensation and sold very well, there were many four cylinder Model B's produced. Compression of the Model B engine was 4.8; the A was 4.2. The Model B engine produced 50 hp at 2800...

      Flat head.
      by canadian
      Flat head engines, I never owned or tinkered with one until my Model A . I have two questions . first , from a apparently good running, starting engine what Vacumn reading would I expect or is acceptable? And valve train noises ... are they comparable to modern hydraulic lifters ..ticking sounds I mean .. needing adjustments? My A has adjustable lifters no noise from valve train but when RPMS are...

      Clutch Chatter Diagnosis
      by 40B1930
      After 60 miles of shake-down drives, I am hearing clutch disc chatter with the trans. in nuetral. When I press the clutch pedal in to the point where the slack is taken up the chatter stops. After driving the car for a few miles the chatter is gone (maybe the grease on the new throw-our bearing thins after warming)?
      1. All parts are new
      2. Clutch disc was centered
      3. Pressure plate...

      Clutch Pressure Plate: New vs. Rebuilt Original...Which Do You Recommend?
      by Ayyy
      I'll be replacing the clutch in the next few weeks. My stock pressure plate options seem to be either a brand new one, or a rebuilt unit. Which type do you prefer?

      For reference, this is Bert's New Pressure Plate:

      Bad clutch??
      by Tgenardi
      Just purchased a 1930 Model A with a 1980 Jeep engine and 1939 transmission from what I was told. It may have an adapter between bell housing and transmission. When you put the clutch in, you can change gears, but the vehicle doesn't move. The previous owner said it just went out as she had other potential buyers test driving the vehicle. The clutch pedal is kind of soft.
      I'm looking for some...

      Multi clutch Trans
      by pAAt
      Picked up a complete multi trans from flywheel to u-joint and all looks great except for the ring gear. I'm sure that's why they pulled it and lucky for me. The ring gear might be able to be flipped (worn about half way through), but I'll replace it. Anyone know if they're all the same as a single disc flywheel ? I found out today they are the same ring gear. I was told the clutch pack looks very...

      Clutch matters...
      by BillLee/Chandler, TX
      My car has a lightened flywheel and a V8 clutch. It came that way from an engine build from the mid-80's. The pressure plate has some chunks of steel welded on it, apparently for balancing. Note in the picture the slug of steel welded in at about the 9 o'clock position, and another welded into the hole over the spring at about the 3:30 position. I haven't looked closely (yet) to see if there is any...

      Multi Plate Clutch Info!
      by 2manycars
      The inside of the flywheel is the most critical part. If the internal splines are worn to where they have divots from the teeth on the clutch pack rattleing, the clutch will not release well. Also, that flywheel looks from the photo to be the early flywheel with out the releaf for the starter drive, so an early starter would be necessary. The transmission gears look good, so that is a plus, and the...
