Re: Newport Engineering wiper review

Thanks for the nice presentation. I don't have a 35/36, but I appreciate the info. BTW, I bought a Newport Eng. wiper for my 40 and it fits nice, although with the cowl vent, things are pretty close.

Re: R.I.P manual trans

Not to be political, but the manual trans is a victim of the general engineering practice of relieving the operator of a vehicle of the responsibility of operating the vehicle. Neutral safety switch,...

Re: I can't pull vent window tight- '40 ford

TJ has a good plan, but if you have it assembled, you can loosen and readjust the lever assy where it bolts to the inside of the firewall. Also there are verticle slots where the cowl vent bolts to...

Re: Rear Spring

If you like the idea of slider buttons, I drilled my spring leaves and installed slider buttons from Chassis Eng. Run the drill < 500 rpm and use cutting oil. Rigid works as well as any for this.

Re: Rear Spring

I painted mine with Miracle Paint from Bill Hirsch. POR 15 would work as well I think. I am not familiar with Teflon paint, but I think I would use it over the Miracle Paint. Your spring looks to be...

Re: 40 ford brake help with mustang mas. cyl.

Eastwood ( and others probably ) sells pliers made so you can bend close to the IFF nut after it is flared. Some pix would help to see your particular problem.

Re: 4 way flasher

The flasher either flashes or it doesn't; the problem is in the crossover network in the switch-- probably. I assume you have the original column with an aftermarket clamp on switch assembly. If this...

Re: Does lack of an 800 Telephone number deter ordering from parts houses?

No need for the 800 #, I also use the cell. However, I prefer the land line for passing CC info.

Re: New Member! Suspension identification

I agree and you can measure between the perch bolt centers to be sure. 37 to 40 is about 38 in. and 35 and 36 should be about 2 in. less.
