Early Ford V-8 Club Forum

FORUM RULES: Users agree to these Rules when using Forum.

The site administrator reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the user agreement without prior notice to the user. It is the responsibility of the user to regularly review the terms of this agreement.

The user agrees to the following terms:

  1. All information that you provide to us for your membership is correct.
  2. You will not use your membership to spam, harrass, or exploit other members in any way.
  3. Vulgar, Abusive, Racist and Sexist Language will not be tolerated.
  4. Commercial-type sales postings will not be allowed.
  5. No mass posting or flooding of the boards is allowed.
  6. No Advertising of parts or cars; no Ebay or business/commercial ads (please use the "Classified" for ads Wanted or For Sale).
  7. VIEWING MULTIPLE TOPICS ON SCREEN: You can choose to see more than 10 Topics at a time ... Log In and choose "Preferences" from the top bar on the Forum page. Scroll down and Change the "Default Topics Returned" parameter to 25 or 50, and save the changes. Since this setting is stored in your browser 'cookies' (if enabled), it seems to use that stored value even if you are not logged in. So, if you use a PC that you haven't logged into the forum from, the setting still seem to remain at the default.
  8. EXTERNAL PHOTO LINKS ON FORUM: You can still use external photo links in your posts on the new forum. They follow the rules of any link in that they have to have the URL link qualified down to the full image file name (example: .jpg). The links will open in a new browser window, the same as an uploaded image attached to a post. Since an image attachment to any post does not display inline with the post, the results are the same. You can use multiple external links within a post. This link is from photos on a site from Don Clink's 'Deuce@75' albums:

    http://donclink.com/deuce_75_1/images/dscn2950.jpg

    Using links from photo sites such as Photobucket can help in "size" issue with uploaded attachment files. For best viewing in web browsers, photos should be around the 800x600 pixel range, and probably not more than 1024x768. Most cameras today store HUGE jpg image files, as the default settings are in the 7, 8, 10, and 12Mb image sizes. The image files that are then attached are very large, and the browser can't display the full image size without using the scroll bars. Use the re-sizing functions of your photo editing software to reduce the image to 800x600, which reduces the file sixe and the image load time in the browser. Don uses Google's free Picassa3 software, which is an excellent photo management product. All of the photo albums of the Deuce, Grand National, and Auburn that are links on the NORG site were built using Picassa's web creation functions. And it's free? (THANKS to Don Clink for the info!)
  9. HOW DO I SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH MY USERNAME? You can LogIn on the Forum, and select PREFERENCES. On this page Members can add optional information such as their City,State, Country; Occupation; Hobbies: list a Homepage; list AOL Instant Messanger Handle; Signature; "Make Email Address viewable to others;" and even change the number of Default Topics shown on a page. WHEN others click on your profile, they will see this information.

The original photo is from a 39-48 engine, the photos of the engine that you posted are from a 49-53 car or a 48-53 truck.

You did not specify what your project is and what transmission and frame that you are using. This could make a difference in what you need to do to make the engine work in your project. It certainly will make a difference in the parts that you will have to have to make the engine work.

You have a 1948 or older engine as indicated by the integral bellhousing and the location of the coolant outlets on the top center of the heads.

I believe that the heads that came with this engine in fact were not the heads that came originally because the seller sent me a picture of the engine awhile back and it has the pre-1948 heads with the coolant spout in the middle of the head. Here’s the original picture. So now my question is how to confirm what engine I actually have? Should I just measure the bore and stroke or maybe some different makers I may have missed?

But can't he use these heads and intake? I'm not a post 48 guy but many used this engine with early heads. I think you have to plug some water holes. Maybe this question can get an answer on Fordbarn.

The road draft tube works by a vacuum created at the end under the car by the speed of the driven car. The air enters at the oil fill tube cap, is pulled through the engine, and exits at the bottom taking crankcase fumes with it.

The road draft tube is a crankcase breather tube to vent crankcase fumes/gases.

What is the road draft tube and how does it work?

The heads and intake manifold are for an earlier motor (48 and back). The intake has no provision for a road draft tube and there is a difference in how the water jackets in your motor line up with the ports in the heads.
