Re: 40 hubs

They will fit '45-'47, not '48.
'48 gets you the "new" F1 & Bendix brakes.

Re: Transmission Oil

If you put GL5 in a gearbox with yellow metals it will discolor the yellow metals after several years. It will NOT dissolve them in a few minutes like most people believe.

This I agree with.

Re: not a fan.

I posted this in 2017. I've used this method several times.


Everyone has their own solution for this common problem, this is mine. You must have a '40 fan mount pulley to start with. Remove...

Re: Any luck with paint from tcp?

I've used TCP acrylic enamel. Colors were not spot on, but the paint was good to work with.

When it comes to Hot Rods, A Ford in a Ford is not traditional, unless it's a flathead.

Re: Winfield su1a

Winfield's R1 cam was always advertised as a "3/4 Race" cam.
Much has been lost in translation over The last 50 years.

Re: Winfield su1a

I ran a Winfield R1 in a 59A 60 years ago.
The idle was smooth as the stock cam.
A real Winfield, not a copy. A stock 8CM or EAB cam would probably perform better.

Re: Help with an 8BA head.

I believe he has an EAB head, not as common as an 8BA head.
Any way, what he has is an easy fix.
