Re: Stripped threads on my axle

I suppose this thread has run its course, but took me a long time to get around to reading it. When I used early Fords for transportation, some of the patchwork solutions would not have been too bad...

Re: crankshafts

I guess not so "Newby" is asking for tips regarding crankshafts. My tip: leave it alone until there are more convincing symptoms that may show problems in the declared use, if that is truly the limit...

Re: What do y'all think its worth?

Sold a much better all '40 coupe 13 months ago for $8K. Some rust in the trunk. All there with title. In the same market I'd expect $4K. Good Luck: Fred A

Re: Correct Oil Filter '40?

Got real lucky on this one. Went out in the cold night into the chicken house to look for a filter like in the pictures. Out of over ten oily candidates there is one that is a match. Not the...

Re: Kit for mating juice brakes to early spindles-Richard's Early V8 garage?

The backing plates from MT Car Products come in both spindle patterns. Those Bendix style brakes also work very well on front only. Interesting that some still choose to use those inferior Lockheed...

Correct Oil Filter '40?

Wanting to run the correct oil filter on my '40 and seeing some variation. Many are claimed to be '40 but also look just like the one on my 59A. Many differences seem to be the location of the inlets...

Re: Saving Floating Rod Bearings?

Thanks Walt. That's exactly what I wanted to know. Out of the tens of millions of these engines made, there still is still is a tendency to keep the junkers. Where your list of possible keepers may...

Saving Floating Rod Bearings?

Several reject blocks and engines clutter my yard. Since there is some intrest in good used bearings I wonder if the original orientation was important assuming that the direction is significant. I...

Re: Early or Late Ash Recievers in '40

To avoid any confusion I readily accept that the 5444 car was numbered in Dec.1939 as Kube meant to state. Even though modified '40 coupes are the majority of the survivors here in California, it...

Re: Early or Late Ash Recievers in '40

Although it seems that I answer my own question, the *18 just means that the original engine was a Ford V8 then the sequential number began at 52something, not to be confused with the 60 which...

Early or Late Ash Recievers in '40

Time to install dash in my two Forties. With chassis numbers starting with 5444 or 5304 respectively, does either need the dash with the earlier ash recievers. Trying to remain authentic where I can,...

Re: Paint codes for 1940 Dlx dash

Do the paint codes for a 75 year old source have any translation to current paint formulation? Hard enough to get something to match from a twenty year old acrylic. Good Luck: Fred A

Young guy that bought that sedan couldn't wait to get rid of the 60 stuff and make a common model out of it. I contacted him about buying the parts but they were already gone. I have a good '40...

Drake Marked Boards

Went out and took another look at my Drake boards and found the large Drake logo on the braces to be as excessive as ever. The tops look great in every sense, but as was explained by a Drake insider...

Re: '40 Dash Panel Brace?

'40 Dash Panel Brace?

Removing the dash in one of my '40, found a stamped brace with a rather factory appearance, about 9" long, running from the bottom, behind the battery gage up to the cowl. Of the relative many '40...
