With a 2.87 overdrive I would think you would need some really good brakes to get stopped in an emergency.

Re: Best electric harness on the market??

I have used the harness from Sacramento Vintage Ford. Great quality and a good price. You might want to check to see if your state requires turn signals on your car. If so you need to get a harness...

Re: 1934 pickup horn : Who repairs these Sparton hornss

Remove the cover and clean the inside with electrical contact spray cleaner. Sometimes it's just a matter of dirty contacts.

Re: Turn Signal Kit ?

The switch does not care if it's 6 or 12 volt. Most switches come with wiring diagrams. Buy a good switch. You can find the good ones on e-Bay for between $25-35. I would avoid the cheap ones....

Re: Oversized Brake Drums

It depends if there was a fatality or major injuries. The police may do it in the case of a fatality or the insurance investigator may do it when there is a law suit.

Re: Paul Bradley Response

Why not contact the National Woodie Club or some of the people who build the wood bodies. I suspect they may have some sources.

Re: electric fans for mustang 302 in 49 part 2

The small block Ford motor generally runs way cooler than any of the GM motors. Maybe check your timing. Can be critical in a 302.

Re: 40 coupe seat

If it's the split back seat with footrests it's from a tudor sedan. It will work in your coupe. Just remove the foot rests and it will bolt right in. The fordor seat had a solid back.
