Re: Oil: To filter or not to Filter

If you have a filter it would be nice to install it.
If you don't, just change the oil regularly.

My 40 didn't have a filter and I never installed one. Ran great for 35 years and was stil a good...

Re: Front Fender Welting Sliding Out On '40

Stick a strip of doubles sided foam tape on the welting, stick it in place and gently tighten fender bolts. In fact, the tape doesn't need to be double sided. Use weather stripping tape sold at...

Re: Mercury Flathead on Craigs list MN

Years ago weren't there inserts you could insert to raise the height of your spark plugs if the engine burned oil?

I recall something like that was available. Look here....

Re: Front Fender Welting Sliding Out On '40

Couldn't you just make the welting flange thicker?

First, loosen the fender bolts and see what's going on with the welting and the way it was installed.

Re: Mercury Flathead on Craigs list MN

It all depends on condition of the crank. It better be very good for that kind of money.
There's one on Ebay right now.

Re: Mercury Flathead on Craigs list MN

At most, that incomplete engine is worth scrap value. Maybe more if you need parts.
Way over priced. If it was any good it wouldn't have been left outside to seize and rust away.
I would pass.

Re: Front Fender Welting Sliding Out On '40

"Kube": I am intrigued that you still install the fender welting as originally done using staples.
I think I recall the welting on the DeLuxe grille vent side panels was also stapled in place. Just ...

Re: Radiator mounting, 2 holes?

Will the holes you use make it easier to install lower radiator hoses? Seems like a small point, but you never know. Even fan clearance may be effected. Check it all out on a trial fit with empty...

Re: Radiator mounting, 2 holes?

I don't know the answer for sure on which set of holes to use. Can you see any wear marks that might give an indication on which holes to use? My 40 also has 2 pair of holes.
I just used the holes...

Re: Temp Gauge Adjustment

Are you sure you have the correct temp. sender unit for the engine.
I know later 1950's engine had temp. sending units of various calibrations.

Re: Front Fender Welting Sliding Out On '40

I am sure "Kube" will provide the correct answer but here's mine.

Top end of welting is long enough to be folded underneath and squeezed tight by fit of fender to cowl .

Ignore the dust.

Banjo Gear oil Question.

I would appreciate it if a Fordbarner would give an explanation of what the little passageway on the end of the torque tube is for and how it functions.
I think it's related to rear gear oil flow....

Re: Generator or alternator ?

Just a bit of "FYI" info.

I used a "fusible link" in the power wire running from the + terminal of solenoid to the alternator. My car is 12V negative ground.
