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.

I have exhausted my search for usable 59ab block that I can rebuild for my stock 48 coupe. I contacted H&H but I can't afford even a short block, I don't have useable core so that's an additional $500. I know these engines getting harder to find, paid for three engines that have been unusable and of course no one will return any money, I guess its buyer beware. I thought maybe someone in the club could help me locate an engine
thanks

Coupman,
I have a 59ab complete that I think would be worth your while. Where do you live. I'm in La Porte, IN area, an Early V8 Club member. Send me an email and I'll tell you about it if interested. You've written that you don't want to expend a lot of dollars. I appreciate that.

When I purchased my 1936 Ford in California it came with an extra engine. The Santa Ana, Calif garage that rebuilt the brakes before shipping the car to Oregon kept the extra engine. I don't know if he still has it. I can contact my brother in Calif and have him check with the garage if you want.

Hi I did some work for a gentlemen that had a flathead v8 sitting in his yard with the original car in his garage. He said if I new of anyone who might be interested let him know and we left it at that. He is in Riverside,CA. I will see if he still has it if you like. He did mention I ran fine when he removed it.

Garage owner traded the engine for something he needed. He sez ...... but didn't have a phone number or name, a shop in LA/Orange County sells short blocks. Try Google.
Sorry
