Re: Source for '48 F-1 rims

Sounds like the OP leans toward retail. Since Mercury went to 15" in '42 they have been somewhat popular but never difficult to find if the right kind of event is checked. As with swap meets, there...

Re: No more buying from max.

As knives in the drawer go, there was a small mistake which the Mac's apologists deflecting, jumped on, however I know the frustration of any outfit that doesn't make it completely clear how much the...

LA Roadster Show Swap In Decline?

I've been doing the Father's day swap for quite some time and always find it to be an event well worth the hype connected to the "shiney roadster" slant to the event's theme. Partly due to the...

Will My Innertubes Be Damaged?

Had a set of wheels sand blasted. This revealed just how rough the insides that were covered by tires had become. I sanded the sharpest of the pits to reduce the apparent abrasiveness and sprayed a...

Re: cam shaft centre line

Four and a half years after this thread, I had to call on Dan to provide me with a -.005" timing gear to salvage a "fresh" short block that has been haunting me for decades after a run-in with...

Re: No Outside Door Handles on '29 Open Pickup?

The Judging Standards is my first stop, followed by the George DeAngelis book "As Henry Built It". Regrettably the latter is long out of print. The added handles on '29 passenger is noted but Pickups...

No Outside Door Handles on '29 Open Pickup?

Two open pickups in the A Club are not running doors with exterior handles. Owners think they are original. Is this a pickup thing or do they have '28 doors? Thanks: Fred A

Re: How a Model A Engine Breathes.........

Perhaps it is only the early V8 guys that noticed that Ford added a tube to equalize the pressure in the float chamber to that inside the air filter to correct for the flow restriction that Bob...

Re: Crankshaft Alignment to Block

Poor alignment of the crank causes problems at the front of the engine also. Last winter I tried to complete a cash and carry short block, picked up at Turlock from a big name in engine building....

Re: B Model Locking Steering

Not as easy when there is previous damage from drilling the pin off center. I drilled a BB, which has the smaller pin, and tapped to a #6 and pulled a screw with a claw hammer. Came right out....

Re: Odd Bent-spoke Wheels

Not uncommon for wheels to be measured in the wrong spot. From the pictures, as Manager pointed out, they appear to be the Kelsey 4.5" which can be found at about a 20:1 ratio to the common 4" in...

Re: 39 deluxe - 40 deluxe

The old car market has made it clear that the '40 Deluxe commands more money, all other things being equal. I have a lovely '40 V8 5W coupe but must build it as a Deluxe against my own preferences,...

Re: Upholstery Staple Gun Suggestions

Re: Advice on purchasing a 1940 Coupe

It does seem that Bruce has gone a bit far with the original paint request which has so narrowed the selection. I'm always watching the '40 market and have seen none that fit his dream car...

Got It!

One worked loose with a soak with Kroil and the other a bit more smoke and spitting with the heat. The triangular jawed vice-grip kept the damage to a minimum. Thanks for the insights. Fred A

Re: 1946-48 Lincoln Continental front and rear ends

Did think of one more useful part of the Zephyr rear. that's the very short rear wishbones. In cases where long ones won't work with a short tube. They do use some goofy nuts to secure the rear...

Re: 1946-48 Lincoln Continental front and rear ends

Skid has it right. More specific, the front brakes are the medium deep backing plated with the drums unique to the '42 to '48 Zephyr and Continental. There are fewer options than either the '39-'40...

Re: Clutch Questions

The '40 originally came with a heavy flywheel and a 9" clutch. Assuming that you still have passenger car gearing and that Ford engineers knew their stuff, then the smaller clutch is the one well...

Re: '31 Roadster dash rail

The Brookville dashrail is sorta OK. The ends need a little hammer fitting and the captured nuts that hold the tank are the wrong size, reduced to 1/4", originally 5/16". The bottom edge of the rail...

Re: Need photos of rear bumpers on roadster pickup

Ol'e Henry's seems a bit stingy with the personal information. I have little talent at sending pictures and am limited to e-mail. The actual, but undisclosed location does have some bearing on the...
