Re: 1940 fan shroud

As Coopman has stated, nope.
In addition to the side shields on the radiator, there was a lower pan below the radiator as well as a left and right "engine" pan. These all should be in place for...

Re: Front Fender Welting Sliding Out On '40

It appears there is an issue with the way it's (welt) folded over at the upper end. One should not be able to see the core when the welt is installed.

Re: Tranny broken, what parts will fit a 34?

I'd installed a complete set of gears from a '48 in to a '34. The owner of the vehicle was thrilled! It did require a special puller to complete this installation but was well worth the effort.

Re: Front Fender Welting Sliding Out On '40

I cheat I suppose. I use stainless wire.

Re: 1940 convertible top care and operation

The '40 manual instructs that the rear window be lowered in to the well prior to the top being lowered. If you don't there remains a chance at breaking the rear screen.
You may want to fold it...

Re: Front Fender Welting Sliding Out On '40

If your welt continues to work out of those areas, a fitment issue between the fender and cowl is most likely the culprit.
The upper end, visible when the hood is open was in fact folded over...

Re: '35 Coupe: What would you bolt in first?

I always have the differential / axle housings / torque tube assembly fitted to the chassis before I install the engine / transmission assembly.

Re: Front Fender Welting Sliding Out On '40

Where exactly are you referring to? The "upper"...??? Between the cowl and fender? Between the inner fender and the fender proper?

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Re: 40 horns

Nice horns? You see them all over the ($$$) place. realistically, a NICE set that needs refinishing but is not bent or pitted badly is around $100.

Re: NOS 1938-48 24 Stud Head Gaskets

I use these religiously and have never had an issue. I do spray them with coppercoat. In my humble opinion, newer is not necessarily better.

Re: Oversized Brake Drums

Frank, The parts store was actually following the law. I remain surprised that their training included this little tid bit.

Good for them and good for you :)
