Re: Radiator for my 1939 Ford

Look back through the Swap Meet, Early Ford "For Sale" items on this website. There was recently a nice one for sale in the Albany/Troy NY area.

Re: 35 Ford Columbia Speedometer?

No problem. I ran mine for quite a while until I got the changer. Just do the math when in overdrive; increase the indicated speed by 30%. BTW, my changer doesn't use vacuum, it's manually changed.

Re: Industria Argentina

I've been fooling around with a gas gauge sender that has no markings at all. Is there a way to identify a oem sender; ie. KS vs. an Argentina made sender?

Re: 1938 Headlamp Changeover

Nice job!

In photo #3, is that a relay for the headlights? If so, who is the manufacturer.

Re: Failed Restart Ignition Resistor

Maybe a bad, or just dirty ignition switch. I had that problem with my '39 and I had to rebuild the switch.

Re: Type nuts used for 42-48 ignition coil wires

I've seen these "tube" nuts in both brass or bronze color or shiny like stainless. Also, some knurled and some smooth. Which of these, if any, were original ?

Re: '39 V8 60 Vin numbers ///strange numbers//////

The tube axle was released for use in July of '37. I've heard, but can't prove that they were used with both the 60 and the 85. It continued in '38 and '39. It looks like Ford was going to use it in...

Re: Need help Identifying Make of Overdrive

That unit was built by Lloyd Young of Winchester, Ohio. He was known as "Mr. Overdrive". Unfortunately, he passed away in 2017 at 87 years old. His o/d conversion was one of the best that I've seen.

Re: Fan oil

You posted this one on the "greasing" thread a few days ago. Isn't this one a '40? It doesn't have a greasable fan hub on it.

Re: 6V generator

I would contact the seller first and discuss your concerns. I don't know the terms of your sale but most sellers won't take back an electrical item if it has been used.

Re: On the horn now

Not necessarily. Open up the relay and check the points. Carefully open the point gap and dress them up with a points file.
