Re: Fan clearance issue

40cpe; Keep doing research. I know I have seen posts where folks also used the narrow belt pulleys found on stock (two narrow belts) 8BA engines and 51 Merc engines.

Re: Fan clearance issue

Pulley is a 1949-50 Merc. I think the 49-50 Ford pick up 8RT engine is the same.

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

Mike 42: When you get done bleeding you'll probably want to adjust your brakes for optimum performance.

This may give some idea of value:...

Talkwrench: It's great that you have such good friends who are willing and able to help you in your hour of need.

Re: 1940 Ford Convertible Top Frame shoulder bolts

If you can't find them, you could make some by turning down a 3/8 dia. stainless bolt on a lathe and then cut new threads. I have had success doing that.
