Re: Emergency brake setup

Right, but is there a set amount to put into the tube? Every one I've had apart already had some spring in the tube, so the clip goes in the middle of the spring somewhere. Maybe I'm overthinking...

Emergency brake setup

I'm installing a new rear cable on my '40. Where the cable grabs the lever in the rear drum, there is a spring on the cable and a small metal clip to retain tension on the cable. I looked through all...

WTB Flathead dip stick tube

I'm looking for a flathead V8 dip stick tube, It should be about 8" long. I know reproductions are only about ten bucks but I'd rather have a good original. Thanks!

Re: My 1935 Convertible Sedan died on the road

After it does it again, spray some carburetor cleaner or dribble some gas down the carb and see if it refires. If it does you know it's a fuel problem.

Re: DOT3 or DOT5 Brake fluid

I use dot 5 also, but it will eat pressure brake switches, even those rated for dot 5. Switch over to a brake pedal switch and you'll be better off anyway.

Re: Drop light

I know this isn't the answer you want to hear, but I've bought my last couple drop lights at swap meets. The new ones just aren't made as well. I put 100w equivalent LED bulbs in so they don't get...

Re: Mail order dual exhaust systems

Well it's been a while, but I ordered a complete exhaust from Red's headers for my '47. It was complete headers to chrome tips.

Re: 15" Rims

Agreed. If he just needs 15" wheels, a trip to the junkyard would do. Ford pickups and econolines used those into the '90's. If he wants to run the stock type cap, then he needs '46-48 Merc or...

Re: Carburettor storage.

Maybe I'm old school, but I don't have a vacuum sealer. I've put masking tape over the top and bottom and a rubber plug over the fuel inlet, then put them in a freezer bag on the shelf in the garage...

Re: Crestliner steering Wheel Question

I've heard that too, probably only on this board. I've never seen a Kaiser/Fraiser use that F logo.

Re: 1932 Ford Pedal Pads Question

You need the '32 pedal pads that the pad has a stud and nut. They are available reproduction. The later pedal pads have a larger stud and thread right into the pedals. You could use those but you'd...

Re: Steering wheel help

It doesn't look to be in bad enough shape to need to be recast. And I'm sure there's a demand for that wheel modified to fit an earlier column. I'm sure it's a few hundred dollar wheel as it sits....

Re: transmission question

I put a Mitchell in my '47 about fifteen years ago. Unloaded it was fine, but if I had a few passengers it would bottom out, so I wound up modifying the floor under the back seat. I think in a '35...

I'd like to buy them already sewn into arm rests so I can remove my existing upholstery and recover them.

Arm rest upholstery

With LB gone I need a new upholstery supplier. Does anyone know who would sell me upholstery for the arm rests for a '46-48 Ford without having them custom stitched locally?

Re: People Ask Me What Is It For?

My dad's '35 is like that. My understanding that he told me was if you ordered the radio it would take the place of the ash tray, but if the customer still requested the ash tray installed the dealer...

Re: 46 Ford Convertible Top Channel on body

I'm having issues with the fuel gauge not reading correctly on my '40. It's converted to 12v, but it has a Mustang style voltage reducer feeding the fuel gauge. If I ground the sending unit wire it...

Re: 1934 ford coupe Rear end to high
