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:


    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.

Hello I just purchased a 1935 Ford and I plan on using this as a daily commuter. I seem to be having a problem with the carburetor it backfires at speeds above 40 and it appears to be quite gutless. If I give it a little choke the backfiring ceases. These brakes are hydraulic I do not know if they are self adjusting. The radio does not function I am not sure how to repair it.

The original Carb for the 35 is the Stromberg 48, what Carb. do you have? The Mfg and the model are usually embossed in the metal. Post a photo or two here. Have you put a vacuum gauge on the engine while at idle? What are the results? A vacuum leak will cause the engine to run lean and better when the choke is pulled out.

See this link about early Ford Hydraulics. They aren't self adjusting.

The brakes are probably early Ford hydraulics. Post a picture of the 6 o'clock portion of the backing plates and people will be able to tell you if they are pre or post war. This is important as some parts are different. If they are early Ford hydraulics they are not self adjusting.

The attached photo is the '46-'48 style. The pre war brakes would have two threaded studs and nuts coming out in this location. Be sure all 4 are the same or at least the same on each axle.

The master cylinder mount is usually the place that things get bad, can you post a photo of yours?

These are the brakes that are on the car I do not know if these are the original style shocks.

Those brakes are the early style hydraulics. Your shocks are not original. you have an aftermarket conversion to tube shocks. If you are using this car as a daily driver you should be able to get new tube shocks to replace those on the car at Napa Auto Parts.

Your car has 39-41 Lockheed style brakes based on the presence of the two lower adjustment screws shown in the picture.

Your brakes are prewar. You can tell because there are two studs and nuts at the 6 o'clock position. The post war backing plates are shown in my previous attached photo.

That carburetor is not a Stromberg, and I believe the carburetor that's on there is subject to blowing power valves if the engine backfires through the carb. Also, that type of air cleaner/filter being used can be very restrictive causing a rich fuel to air mix going into the intake manifold.
