Re: 1940 radio

Could save yourself a lot of money by just installing a Bluetooth enabled speaker under the dash. Limitless possibilities from your phone and really incredible sound for around $150.

Re: 3 speed stock transmission

Michael from Third Gen turned me on to this product. I've used another similar CRC product, but this one was better.

Re: Auction of Gene Hetland's mostly '32 parts

I'm sorry to hear of your issues with Mecum auction. That really stinks that it has become such a fiscal loss for you.

Re: Tools for removing Shock Links

DavidG suggested this tool to me for removal of the ball stud on a '32 front end.

It worked well and was reasonable.

Re: Would you run this oil pump?

For something as vital as an oil pump, I would suggest getting a good pump than you've either tested or is known to be good. They are very easy to find.

Why chance it?

As for the sand in the...

Re: I'm a turncoat...

Count me as a black sheep, but I prefer the Hornets over the Mercs. The Hornets look like factory lead sleds or customs.

Re: new valve seats for a 53 EAC

Agreed.

I thought there was one or a few threads about cutting seats into a block that didn't come with them on here. I believe Ronnie Roadster, Pete, Bored & Stroked, & JWL all chimed in.

Re: '40 Ford Rear-end

I purchased the Vintage Precision puller and couldn't be happier. I know the price of the puller may seem like a lot, but doing it right and saving an axle is money well spent. Think of the hassle...
