Re: '40 door locks - new springs - ??

Are you talking about the door lock cylinders or the rest of the latch mechanism? I had latches with broken springs. Took a look at them and decided to go shopping at the swap meets, as if I wasn't...

Re: Bill Hirsch Black Miracle paint.

I think sand blasters are sometimes held to too high a standard which can't be met when many jobs before yours had greasy crumbs which contaminated the medium. Tough to really clean the rough, fresh...

Re: What's wrong with this 39 Deluxe hood?

Have done a couple in the past year and had the opposite problem with the hood not forward enough and the fenders pushed toward the rear as far as possible. The '40 Deluxe just fell together right...

Re: '40 std coupe Q

There is a bit more than just the hood and grille. To complete the change the door window garnishes and the dash chrome trim may be the most important. Fall short of this you will be haunted with...

Re: Slingshot Manifold

H&H cleverly done. I wonder if Motor Mag writers do their own work or accept packaged articles from the industry? Putting my money on JWL and happy for it. Your mileage may vary. Fred A

Re: Slingshot Manifold

Keep in mind that the quoted article was delivered to Hot Rod by a seller of certain intakes and could have been stacked in favor of their product. Just a way that business is done. I chose the...

Re: differences; stromberg 97 and ford94

Basic V8 lore may say that the Stromberg is better for multiple carbs and the Chandler Groves design is good for singles. The fuels have gone to hell in recent years and makes the comparison tougher....

Re: 32 Model B locking hubcap. The epic journey to the shrink !

The ol' Tiger must live in a deprived neighborhood where there is little of the odd Ford pieces. Here in the LA area, I dragged a V8 version to about ten swap meets pricing it at $100. Finally after...

Re: 48 coupe- relays on back of gauge cluster

Good luck with those old rotten wires. Nearly all the originals of that era, even new in the box are gonners. The resistor is most often under the dash above the steering on the firewall. Luckily the...

Re: How to "freshen up" a 47 tranny?

Don't be too quick to replace the snap rings as some are too thin and the bearing retainer will not hold the bearing tightly, allowing the bearing to creep in the case and add to the end play. Good...

Re: 1940 ford dash bazel replacement

If you have help, taking out the front seat makes working under the dash more comfortable and you can better concentrate on the task. A dremel tool with cut off wheel makes the clips quicker to...

Phoney Houdaille Shocks?

Looking at the shocks on my '30 pickup, no Houdaille to be found on the cap. Pulled the plug and there was what looked like motor oil inside. Just the words "Hydraulic Suspension". Even though the...

A vs B Intake Manifold

It is hard to imagine why the Ford engineers changed the shape of the intake. The offset angle and the vacuum tap relocation were needed, but the flat top is a wonder to me. Could the B intake flow...
