Re: 52 F1 door rubber

The best supplier is Steele Rubber. Can't speak to a squeeze off for softest.

Re: Is the brake master cylinder filled through a hole in the floor?

Some of the master cylinder repop units (including the NAPA version) have the dumbest design possible for the cap/throat. Impossible to add fluid without making a mess, they compound the fun by...

Re: 46 ford light switch

The knob shaft needs to be rotated about a quarter turn to properly seat it (or remove it). The release slot is on the bottom of the switch. I've found it best to loosen the mounting screw from the...

Re: 48-50 F1 wiring question

Joe, I would start with the battery and check things from that direction. Pay special attention to the starter solenoid.

Re: What did I just buy ?

The serial number is on the passenger side frame rail between the radiator and the engine (as alan also stated). Careful with the abrasive action - a scotch brite pad is best.

Re: aluminum radiators

Of all the Chinese factories I visited in the 2010s, exactly none had any meaningful automation. There is an strong technical school practice, along with a complete disregard for worker safety, as a...

Re: What year and what is it worth?

The serial number for the 48-50 F1s should be in two places, on the glove box door and on the patent plate on the PS firewall in the engine bay. The first character of the serial number should be an...

Re: aluminum radiators

I bought a new aluminum Champion after my original radiator sprang a leak. Fitment, performance, and cost all are great. I'll live with the loss of points in any Dearborn judged events I don't plan...

Re: Color coded wire diagram, '46 V8

The photos show some modifications to the ignition circuit that I haven't seen previously. Specifically, moving the resistance coil under the hood seems problematic.

Another useful resource are...

Re: 1950 F1 door won't open...

The least damaging solution would be to cut away the rear window seal. The window mounts from the inside so cutting from the outside would let you carefully push it in. A new seal is less expensive...

Re: 1950 F1 door won't open...

Really? The agency that was first established in 1908 and had Hoover as a leader since 1924 was the Bureau of Investigation. J. Edgar, ever the empire builder, certainly took advantage of the high...
