Re: new bottom radiator hose leaking

Clem, I'm not being a wise guy but did you follow the directions on the bottle? They are important with this stuff.
Coat both the radiator outlet and hose inlet. Let it get quite tacky before...

Re: 40 deluxe seats

I'd like to see the rear seat from different angles. Does it fit your car? If so, obviously it's correct.
Yes, carpet along the bottom. Well, not really carpet but the same stuff as the bottom of...

Re: 40 deluxe seats

The first & second photo is a seat from either a Tudor or a business coupe. Without seeing the bottom the seat, I can't be certain exactly which it is.
Regardless, this seat is covered in the...

Re: new bottom radiator hose leaking

I use it as a matter of course on all hoses. Removing a hose later is easy.
Especially with fresh restorations, I dread the thought of anything leaking.

Re: Now it's junk from Carpenter!

I don't believe you are being cynical. Rather, I believe you are being realistic.
When Mr. Carpenter ran that business a guy could except to be treated "right".
That was a primary reason I'd worked...

Re: Now it's junk from Carpenter!

"Taking the hit" is not an issue. I can afford the $12.
The issue is the lack of ethics.

Widespread or not, do you believe when someone sells crap (in this case knowingly) the consumer should suffer a loss?
I was taught early on that although "everyone is doing it" doesn't necessarily...

The beginning of the end? I believe we are already spiraling towards the end. Last time I checked, prices are going down, down, down. It's the old economic rule of supply vs. demand.

Now it's junk from Carpenter!

I have been a loyal customer and well, a fan, of Carpenter since 1973 or so.
It has become apparent that in the most recent years things are changing there.

Re: new bottom radiator hose leaking

Clem, I doubt the WD40 caused any issues. You didn't soak the hoses in it - did you?
I tend to boil the hose to make it more pliable and get it in place before it cools off. Also, I'll say it...

I'm with you Michael. In fact, Mr. Connelly is currently going over one for me. It'll end up in my '36 roadster.

Re: how to remove coil 1941 merc

Many novices to this hobby confuse service parts for factory installed parts. A common and quite excusable mistake.

Re: 1940 Ford trunk lid supports Body color??

Joe, I can't answer with any authority to '41 Fords. My research and experience has been primarily focused on '39 - '40.
I did check the Ford V8 Club restoration manual and could not find this...

Re: 1940 Ford trunk lid supports Body color??

Service replacement supports were supplied in ONLY one color - most likely black. I can't imagine too many owners of these "used cars" demanding they be painted body color upon replacement.

Re: 1940 Ford trunk lid supports Body color??

Mike, Listen to your gut...
The trunk lid was trimmed to the body prior to painting. As such, the support arms and all associated fasteners were body color.

Re: how to remove coil 1941 merc

And, if you'd desire to do even more research, you'd find the "strap" type condensers were never installed upon the assembly line.
Please reference PeteH's post and subsequent response.

The distributor is like all the other ones 37 - 41.
These coils were made for the Detroit Transit Authority. However, while researching these, it became clear quite quickly that there were far more...

Tubman, I can assure you that the type of condenser that utilizes the distributor / timing gear cover is the concourse correct piece from '37 through '41.
The Hunt's condensers are not concourse...

Re: how to remove coil 1941 merc

You'll need to remove the bolt at the top of the distributor housing (right side) to the timing gear cover. That bolt serves to fasten the timing gear cover AND the condenser.
I have found the...
