Re: Installing a 32' Roadster Body

Maybe to clear the oil filter, but the starter on a chev engine in on the other side.

Re: Installing a 32' Roadster Body

The Sorenson video of the 1st body (Victoria) coming down being mated to the frame after Henry stamps the 18-I shows a worker dealing with the handle for the vent like the spring was not on.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

I was wondering how you eliminated blow back and bare spots when painting into an enclosed frame pocket. I still use a siphon gun on sheet metal topcoats even though I do have a high quality HVLP...

Re: Painting Over Water !!!!!!!!!!!

RalphM, one of the main combustion products from burning natural gas or propane is water as well as heat. That is partly why you can vent a 95+% gas furnace like a dryer with plastic pipe.

Re: Painting Over Water !!!!!!!!!!!

To be clearer, I don't use etching primer, I use gloves, phosphoric acid and and aggressive stainless steel wool and follow instructions.

Re: Painting Over Water !!!!!!!!!!!

Rust is iron oxide, IE oxidation of iron. Actually only O2 is needed. There is more free oxygen in air then water. However as soon as ferrous metal is exposed to air, it starts oxidizing due to...

Have you tried having someone push in the clutch while you try to move the side levers on the trans?

Re: 32 axle bent twist ?

If it were me, I would use say 3/8 metal rods and 4 round tapered spool pieces to center the rods in the king pin holes. You could make the wood tapered pieces with a drill press and have them a...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Mike, since you have already done many of these, you probably already have enough pictures for you to assemble a "restoration" book of your own for sale. All you would need to do is minimal text for...

Re: Winterleaf Brown

All the metal brackets and some metal pieces inside my 40 Woodie body are Winterleaf Brown and it is nothing like what you show there. Maybe there are 2 different colors with the same name.

Re: Early'32 Grill shell- chrome??? wall hanger

Dale, I agree with David. A previous owner (maybe owned a chrome shop) plated it to be different. Boy that sure has plenty of patina!

Re: 1940 Ford Wiper Towers Closed versus Open Car

The shape of the 40 casting where it sits on the sheet metal of the cowl is different between the open and closed car towers also and uses a different gasket.

Re: Single stage or base/clear

For me it boils down to where you are going to paint. If you have a PROFESSIONAL downdraft paint booth with zero dust/bugs/debris Base/clear is fine. If you don't have a perfect place to paint,...

Phil, also make sure the ends of the plug wires SNAP into the inner caps, you have to push really hard for them to get "home" sometimes. If they push in and just stop, they should most likely go a...

Re: HT Lead Coil to adaptor on Distributor. 39 Coupe.

I would ditch the carbon core wires for real wire for anything on a 6v system. There is a real problem if you use too hot a coil on those helmet distributors and have too much resistance in the plug...

Re: Front bumper arms

Do the arms look bent? Bolt the bumper on and see where it ends up after all the bolts are tight. Could be the bumper will straighten it out as those irons are spring steel. Are you sure the fenders...

Re: '33 starter ...click ...click

No, just get the Bendix past the flywheel. I always push the gear as far away from the body of the starter as it will go but I don't think that is necessary.
