Re: Fuel pump

I have only experienced a couple of cars wherein the lobe was worn enough to cause similar issues to what the original post had described. So yes, it does happen and no, it's not good.

Re: 1935 Luggage Rack

Perhaps Don Rogers can weigh in here. When I was searching for a rack, he (as usual) had the correct information. Don??? Are ya "out there"?

Re: Fuel pump

37cab, If by chance the cam lobe is worn, a simple and rather lasting repair is to place a small piece of leather (stamp it out of an old belt) in the cup of the pump.

I might suggest you send...

Re: Drake Sale:

Dave, I don't believe I or anyone else should be able to dictate how a person runs his business. Those are choices made by the person running said business.

Business practices are one thing. Ethics, or the lack thereof are quite another.

Re: 37 fuel tank

Derby, I too had heard of the dry ice thing. Water is easier and cheaper :)

Re: 37 fuel tank

Only apply enough heat (after filling tank with water) to get that fitting moving. You don't want to disturb the seal between the boss and tank.
The tube goes in the tank about 3/4" at most.

Re: convertible rear window question

If you plan on tapping the holes, do so very carefully with this (small) size. If you can purchase a bottoming tap, that would be best suited for this task.

Re: 40-47 half ton pickup column shifter?

The Towne book was a big help in my restoration and considering when it was written, a decent starting point for anyone so interested.

Hey Floyd... how's this for tail lamps with a bumper?

Re: 40-47 half ton pickup column shifter?

He said they were rare and he was correct. Primarily because Ford never built one - at least not through 1940. No way, nope...

It was VERY simple to install a column and the related parts from a...

Re: Need some bolts

I checked and even McMaster-Carr doesn't list them. They have 12-24 but not 12-32. If THEY don't have them, I simply don't know who might.
Do you have a lathe? If so, they'd be easy to make.

The authentic screws in a '36 - '40 frame were 5-40 x .375" as I recall.

Re: 1937 fan belt short

Drake repop is not the correct length for your '37.
If you locate a NOS belt of that same number, you can easily see the Drake belt is shorter.
If you have the correct intake and generator pulley...

Re: Need some bolts

Elwood, The hub bolts in all of my -42 - 48 fan hubs are 12-32. You should be able to get these at any decent hardware store in your area.
If not, McMaster-Carr is your friend :)
