Re: Found A Used 1940 Ford a Pickup Hood Ornament

Heck, I've explained to my wife that if my memory were as good as it once was, I'd gain 20#. Why? I must make a dozen trips daily to and from the shop only to get there and wonder why I went.

Re: Ford GT 2018 $1125000 BJ just now

I've run a number of cars through Barrett in the past couple of decades and have found them to be a rather good outlet for cars that I'd wanted to sell anonymously.
From my experience, quite unlike...

Re: Found A Used 1940 Ford a Pickup Hood Ornament

Tom, The passenger car (Ford V8, aka "standard") as well as the pickup truck utilized identical hood ornaments. The handles were different.

Re: H6006 halogen head lights

Re: ford aluminum heads

Pro? They are correct and unlike cast iron painted in an attempt to appear correct (they never do) the aluminum head will cool better albeit not enough to make a big difference.

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

Not certain if you are doing anything wrong or not.

Did you have a good pedal prior to replacing the shoes and cylinders? If so, we can pretty much eliminate a defective master.

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

Why not use it?
Anti-freeze does not dissipate heat as well as pure water.

Re: is it ok to run diluted antifreeze?

50/50 mix is best
I personally would never run just water ,
With antifreeze it helps keep the rust from forming

Flatty's run hotter than the average engine you say? News to me.

There is no debate among folks that have a basic understanding of thermodynamics.

Re: Perch bolt ID

These were for the first design sway bar. That was installed well in to January 1940.
You will rarely see that design bar as they were well, not a good design. Most were replaced at the dealer when...

Re: Which Oil Sending Unit Should I Use?

If you mean about an inch away from the stock sending unit, then yes, that's a perfect spot.

Re: knob on choke cable

If you want to save the knob for reuse, do what Meric42 has advised.
If you're replacing the knob, cut it off.

Re: Which Oil Sending Unit Should I Use?

If you have the 21 stud engine, you must have the 50# sending unit.
The correct sending unit will have NO markings on the base. Later service parts that are 50# units, will have "50" stamped in to...

Re: 1936 Ford rearend gear ratio and speed

I have had numerous 1936 through 1940 Fords. My overall favorite gear ratio is the 3:78. Plenty good "off the line" and cruising at 55 or so is never an issue.
I currently have a '36 roadster with...

Forget about damaging the original plate. You're going to replace it anyway.
