11-08-2006 03:23 PM FlowKooler and a throttle return
I always install a FlowKooler plate on the water pump. I run the GM FastBurn heads and they like to be run a tad on the lean side ... which makes the 430 HP 350 cubic inch engine want to warm up if you do not have adequate air flow and coolant flow.

I like to drill and tap the housing and install a modified Moroso throttle return bracket. I cut the bolt hole bracket off and then thread the shaft 3/8 NC to fit the tapped hole in the housing.

11-08-2006 03:09 PM ZIP raised water pump for a 32 Ford
I always use a ZIPS raised water pump on my 32 Fords. The engine sits so low ... without a raised pump ... you cannot run a large mechanical fan. This shows the parts and pieces I use. I always add a FlowKooler plate to the water pump and a air bleed valve to the top of the pump housing

The GM part # for the vent is 10070107

11-06-2006 03:29 PM 3W seats ... a work in progress
Fairly satisfied with the seat. The wood is 3/4 Birch cabinet maker grade ... stained with a light pine stain and polyurethane. The original top seat back was 5 boards. One up each side, one each across the top and the bottom and one in the middle. I believe my set up is stronger and was easier for a hack like me to duplicate ... and even then I had to have some help ...

The sliders are only 1 inch thick and adapt to the metal floor of the coupe very easily. The seat frame is about the same height as when Henry did it ... but with more forward/rearward travel.

11-06-2006 03:21 PM Seat track sliders
The original seat track sliders were missing ... and I looked for a year without success for a original set. Had to have some SO ... So I went to eBay and found a set of universal tracks and with a little fabrication ... now they fit a 32 Ford.
