My new parts for the oil pan job arrived today and I was stunned by the difference in quality between the oil pan gasket sets from the different suppliers.
Here is the latest arrival, if you look back a few posts and compare this with the Mac’s part you be able to see the difference. You’ll notice that this states strictly not to use any sealer!
My oil drain pipe has also arrived today, (Mac’s Part), so hopefully it’ll be OK, and there is enough thread in the main cap to lock it in place.
Just about to put the sump back on when I decided to double check the oil return pipe which I had found in the oil pan when we removed it.
The pipe has damaged threads, doesn’t look like an original and had a dab of solder helping to secure it. So I’ve ordered a new one which should be here tomorrow.
As you can see the engine is using a five bearing cam in a three bearing block (thanks to John Cochran for point this out)
Interesting difference between the Snyder’s & Mac’s oil pan gaskets, Snyder’s one has far more “cork”
This is a brand new in the box replacement wiper motor, arm and blade from Macs Antique Auto Parts in the States. I purchased this for my Ford Model A but decided to stay with the vacuum motors. It’s a universal type so can be used in numerous configurations and vehicles. Here’s a link to the Macs site so you can see the details http://www.macsautoparts.com/ford_model_a/model-a-ford-electric-windshield-wiper-motor-12-volt-stainless-steel-case-replacement-type.html The parts were purchased from Belcher Engineering, MACs agent in the UK. The parts owe me £53 inc VAT plus postage. But as I have no use for this I’m willing to let go a bit cheaper 🙂
