Re: Water pump castings

Just recently, perhaps one month ago, I'd offered (8) '37 - '49 pumps for the cost of shipping (about $20) and got ZERO interest.
My guess is unless you pay to ship them, you're likely to have them...

Re: Cornhead grease and steering gear oil.

I too use JD corn head grease in all of the steering gear boxes. Even though every box is fully rebuilt, well, I don't want to take any chances at drips.
I used an extra filler plug to install the...

Michael, You add a good point about the facing... I am fortunate to have made a tool that does just this and should have mentioned this in my initial post. Thanks for the additional and note worthy...

Re: Shout out to Kube and 35fordtn

Very kind of you but certainly not necessary to thank me. Lord knows the countless amount of time I've searched for some elusive part. It's quite rewarding to match a part with a good guy (you) that...

Re: Water pump repair

If you already have a kit and want to do it yourself, fear not - it's simple.
You will need a press to remove the pulley and impeller.
The rest is pretty straight forward. Remove the pulley and...

Re: 1939 1940 1941 firewall wiring kidney shaped cover

Larry, The flat one is early '39. However, I can no longer recall when the design change occurred. It was very early - that much I recall. It was done as you would suspect, to allow more room for...

Re: Rust Oleum spray cans

Ron, I am not in the mood to kill myself over a can of paint. 100#? Crap, I wonder how long it'll take to pull the shrapnel from my bleeding body.
Who does this stuff???

Re: 1940 Ford Speedo Needle/Pointer Removal

It is simply pressed on to the shaft. However, I strongly advise against just prying it off. Rather, get a firm hold of the shaft with a needle nose plier and only then (gently) pry the needle off.

Rust Oleum spray cans

Am I the only guy that has issues with Rust Oleum spray can nozzles clogging?
It seems since they changed the nozzle design a few years ago, I throw more cans away than I am able to utilize.

Re: Optima battery will only chug to 50%

I've had similar experience... most go ten years, one is at fourteen.
I do know charging takes the lifespan down. That's clearly noted in the instructions.

Re: Head skimming: Any tips?

Mart, When I used to do these, I'd mount the head on a number of adjustable supports, usually six. The difficult (time consuming) issue was leveling the head as best I could.
I clamped it in many...

Re: Cleaning an early aluminum intake

We take our horse trailers to a nearby truck wash at the end of each season. Whatever is in their solution, wow... the aluminum ends up looking as new.
The horses do not appreciate it one bit.

Re: Installing the driver side visor on a '40

There is no pad between the headliner and body nor is there a pad between the visor bracket and liner.
You can locate the holes for the visor bracket with a push-pin.
Screws are oval head slotted....

Re: Do you think a sleeve will fix this?

To be cracked that bad makes me think what other issues lurk and may show their...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Thanks Coopman,
This one has been fun for the most part. I've never done a Folkstone Gray coupe before.
As soon as this one is near completion, I'll be starting on another '40 convertible.

Re: Remanufactured Flathead

On occasion, the specs it was built to are stamped in to the surface plane that the intake bolts to. Usually right - front.
I've seen plenty of those tags that were not stamped.

Re: Champion H-9 plugs

Another one?

I'm not 100% certain when the two rib ended and the five rib started. I think 1942... I think.

Re: Champion H-9 plugs

Hey Tom, Unfortunately these are not correct for the guy's '52. Still, a nice set for a guy with a 39 - 40 truck.
These were the ones I'd mentioned in an earlier post that are frequently on eBay......
