Re: Conversation with a WWII Veteran

V8: Sadly, you are so correct. When I was teaching high school the students didn't remember Dec. 7 but, they did remember April 21st, National Weed Day.

Re: 1940 Ford Gas tank Fuel Outlet fitting pick up Question

Philo, I was able to get the original sender to fit the plastic tank by re drilling and using nutserts. However, it took tons of patience to get it to "match" the gauge readings accurately as the...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

I think it's really cool that "Kube" is willing to share his knowledge and show the results with others. Lots of folks take it all with them on their last ride.

Re: 1940 Ford Gas tank Fuel Outlet fitting pick up Question

Gee, that's so sad. I am sure owner was devastated but, glad to be alive.
You can see the blown out tire in the fore ground. Wonder what eventually happened to the car?

Re: 1940 Ford Gas tank Fuel Outlet fitting pick up Question

Yes, as a couple of folks have intimated that hollow indent you see in the bottom of the tank is actually a hollow oval opening that goes completely thru to the top of the tank. It acts as a tank...

Re: 1940 Ford Gas tank Fuel Outlet fitting pick up Question

Thanks "Kube: for the photo. Big help.

TJ: It's just an idea I had, thinking that having the pick up tube in the stock location would make it easier to "draw" fuel from the plastic tank. I...

Re: 1940 front tack under dash

Re: 1940 front tack under dash

Thanks "Kube". I didn't realize there really was a maroon and a tan. For some reason, I asked Lebaron-Bonney to make mine a maroon color as the first one they sent me was tan back in 1988. Pure...

Re: 1940 front tack under dash

There is no rubber under the 40 dash. However, at the top of the dash there was a piece of the old style cloth electrical tape folded over the top edge of the dash to prevent squeaking of metal on...

Re: 49 Mercury hood binding problems

Joey, Be sure and check the sheet metal on the top inside of the fender where the springs mount. Sometimes that area develops cracks from years of stressful movement.

Re: Painting Copper Brake Lines

Let them be as they are and naturally age.
If you paint them they will look terrible when the paint begins to chip.

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

Gosh Karl, Thanks for posting that. Is static electricity the reason why you should never fill a gas can while it is in the bed of a pickup truck?

OK, you all convinced me. Yes, I do remember the Pinto. Ford's first exploder.
NO GAS CAN IN TRUNK.

Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

Do any of you good folks carry a spare can of gas in your trunk just in case you "run dry" on the road? If so:
What size container?
Metal or plastic?
Do you get a gasolene smell?
Is it...

Re: 49Merc/Tesla running gear

Wonder if the owner can claim an energy tax savings with the IRS?
Hope that's not the future if GREEN people get their way.

Re: 8ba generator mount modifications

The water pumps on the engine above are 1951 Mercury.
Your engine might have a 4 inch crank.
Plus, the intake manifold has 4 bolts for the carb like mercury had.
8BA's used the 3 bolt carb.
