Re: 32 window crank knobs

Ok, I give up. What 32 do these handles you had made go to? I have never run across anything similar.

Re: Found A Used 1940 Ford a Pickup Hood Ornament

Yeah Mike, I don't trust my memory much. That is why I usually preface anything I write here with "I believe, or I think"!! We all could probably use memory enhancing drugs!

Re: Car at auction

I really like 41 Mercs, something about that cool front end. If I wasn't full up and out of money I would be interested. In general post 40 cars don't interest me much but 41 Mercs are an...

Re: Tips On Installing Stock Exhaust Pipes

I put a Waldron's dual exhaust system on my 40 coupe and it took some very minor tweeks but it was pretty easy as I have a friend with an exhaust tubing machine.

Re: '37 Ford all locked up

Remember, NEW does not equal GOOD. I chased my tail for 2 weeks before an old timer asked me to try starting the car while he looked into the battery with a mirror. Sure enough, one cell of this...

Re: 1940 Ford Coupe Headliner Question

I know I have one and maybe both, I also have the 2 pieces that get covered with headliner material along the edge of the windshield down to the dash. PM me if you need these.

Re: H&h

Re: Cobra Long grain vs short grain

You may not have much choice. Last time I did a fabric top you couldn't get the short grain. At least that was the case when I did my station wagon.

Electrical problems often are intermittent and those are the hardest to find.

Re: No Oil Pressure While Cranking

Do you have a mechanical gauge on it? If you are cranking it with the switch in the off position the stock gauge wouldn't be in play. I would try it again, I don't think those stock oil filters get...

Re: Oil pressure with remote oil fllter

Also make SURE you don't get the hoses mixed up between where they leave and then re enter the block. I know of at least 1 engine that ran for a couple of days before locking up due to this. The...

Re: Remove rear quarter on Woody

Lots of mortise and tenons in these wooden crates! They usually have a big machine screw into a T nut or big wood screw into the tenon. The exterior stainless caps are over a standard T nut.

Re: 1934 Ford auction results

As I said before, if I was in this old car hobby for the money I would sell them all right now because the selling price will only continue down. But I am not, and my son can give them away if he...

Re: '40 Ford visors

To make my 40 coupe driver's side visor "stiffer" I pulled the visor straight off the rod (there is a pointed rod in that goes in the length of it) and put a slight bend in it, pushed the visor back...

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

I was thinking the same as earlyride, and perhaps the 2 surfaces (crank side and bolt side) of the pulley are not exactly 90 degrees from the centerline which would permit a wobble.
Also, did you...
