Re: 40 Ford Juice brake performance

Why turn them? That's just a load of life taken out of the drums. They only have a finite amount of material, personally I would bed the shoes to the drums rather than thin the drums out. It might be...

Re: Buried Treasure - 1934 Ford Coupe Ute

I am wondering if the Aussie coupe body was made shorter in length and taller so that it could be compatible with the coupe utility body. You want to minimise cab length to maximise load area. I...

Re: I finally edited my windshield replacement video. 1941 pickup.

Yeah keeping it indoors helps with the leaks a lot!

You have a bit more space than me, Ralph. (understatement of the year). My garage is chocca blok so the truck is parked outside.

Re: 40 Ford Juice brake performance

It might improve with driving, as things bed in. Drive, adjust, drive, adjust. Make 'em work.

I used emery cloth inside the drum to (sort of) arc the shoes to the drum when I did the brakes on my...

And part 2:

Guess what? it still leaked like a sieve. Getting it to stop leaking is a currently ongoing work in progress.

I finally edited my windshield replacement video. 1941 pickup.

Probably an exercise in how not to do it, and plagued by technical problems (mainly with audio) I edited the footage down from 2 hours 20 to a two parter of 15 mins each part (approx).

My new but...

Re: 1934 Ford 3 Window Coupe TRUNK Hinge

I just snapped this. It seems to me that you have to fit the hinge first up and behind the bracket and then attach the drip trough to the lower 2 bolts each side.

This is a 33 5w I can see a...

Re: 1934 Ford 3 Window Coupe TRUNK Hinge

I'm just about to go out but could take some photos of my 33 5W hinges later if it would help. Hopefully they might be the same or similar enough to give a clue. The hinge mounts are complicated by...

Re: New Member New car

Looks like a great driver, a fun car. don't sweat it, wait until something breaks and then fix it.

I'd just make sure the brakes are in good order, the radiator and cooling system is good and the...

Re: At the local show

I was at a show about 15 years ago and a guy walks up and tells me mine was the only flathead he'd seen all day. That's how I met Lars from Sweden.

Re: Holley 94 carb jets

I have a few 94s and often they have 51s in them. I don't know if any factory application had 47s. 50 or 51 is a good size to start with.

Re: 42-46 pickup cabs & nose question!

Not for the fenders, but the cabs are pretty much the same. I am not 100% sure so I was waiting for someone else to reply, but I think the cabs are all similar.

Re: Finally got it to not overheat!

For what it's worth, I'm using the hoses to support the top of the radiator in both my roadster and my truck. Both have steel tubes and rubber connectors.

Re: Buried Treasure - 1934 Ford Coupe Ute

That's a cool find. Hopefully they can salvage something useful from it.

Re: 41 pickup tech question.

Thanks Mike, I had you in mind when I asked the question. I couldn't find the second one, but did find the assembly from my other truck and that had one on each side, plus the correct hardware...

Re: 1932 serial number starts with D5

If it is an original frame, stamped by Henry's men, the numbers will be of a distinctive type face. (font).

A pic of the frame and the numbers would help. Just cover over the last few digits if...

Re: 41 pickup tech question.

I found a previous post on the same subject and it does look like there should be two.
bob drake posted a link to an info sheet and that shows two. (For a car at least).

41 pickup tech question.

Probably getting up there as far as geekiness goes, but I just pulled my cowl vent, including the hinge. The hinge has shouldered bolts. I have only found one wavy washer to use in this location,...

Re: Alternator to generator conversion

It depends on how much of the original wiring was changed when the alternator was fitted.
the generator needs an appropriate regulator. I use the 30/35A types that are for Fords from about 1960 or...

Re: Hubcap restoration

If the drill press has a depth stop that could be set to avoid marring the stainless.

Re: FH Valve Springs

I'm not sure what you are referring to either. Is that a practice on some other motor? There is no oil in the lifter, so you can't feed the cam lobe from it. It all gets lubed from oil splashed from...

Re: 40/41 pickup windshield install. What to expect?

2 hours 20 mins of video. I'm not sure anybody would want to sit through that! Some heavy editing called for methinks.
