Yeah studs seems like a better option so half the pressure on the oil pan casting isn't removed at once.

But anyway the oil leak still seems to be cured which makes me happy cuz I don't have to worry about loosing all the oil anymore, haha.

I can't believe how long you ran it with those missing bolts.  sometimes it's just the simplest thing causing a problem.

Believe me if I knew they were missing I would've stopped using it until I put new ones in, haha.

I think if you ran it long enough like that you would have cracked something, that would have sucked.

Yes I'm definitely lucky it didn't crack or warp the oil pan casting.

Well I finally got some brakes rigged up on the little Ford today. A short while a go I made a setup that hooked to my deck handle, which seemed to work nicely. However, no matter how I adjusted the caliper arm the pads would not grab the rotor at all. I tore into it today thinking the pads were fried but actually discovered this:



Yep, someone put the arm on backwards. Hahaha. So after I cleaned and lubed everything up I put it all back together and made up a new linkage.



This is the handle with the brakes disengaged:



The linkage tucked up nicely underneath:



Then the return spring at the back:



Also when I initially made the brake setup I welded in these heavy duty braces for the radius arm brackets:



The brakes work great!



They slow it down right away, and I also have a parking brake now because the handle locks in place. Which is pretty handy.



Let me know what ya think!

Yeah you can never go wrong with brakes. I kinda like them myself, probably because it's a privilege if I use them haha.

Hahaha, yeah I kinda got used to not having brakes on this one, but I'm definitely happy I have them now.

Yeah, well I don't see the front end breaking apart due to piss poor welding, so I think we'll call it good. Wink

It blows my mind how far you're into this project and you're just fixing the brakes now, I guess it all depends how and where you ride.  I ran my jacobsen when I was a kid without brakes for years until my dad made me new pads.

I had brakes, but the linkage came loose and the new tires have a larger circumference so mabye a disk brake is up next. But who need to stop? I mean I have not ever wished I had brakes , not even after I paid 400 dollars to get the garage door replaced.... wait a minute, yeah I do regret not having brakes
