Re: 1940 Ford Deluxe Dash Paint Colors?

Re: Chatter Rod Removal

How much tolerance do you think Hank allowed for the rod to slide through the attachment on the block. From my estimation it is minuscule. From today's experience, I imagine I would have to drive...

Re: Chatter Rod Removal

Those are very good illustrations, Tony. Let me preface my situation. My 40 has a top loader tranny out of an earlier ford, 39 I hope. The previous owner told me he put in a new front floor. I have...

Re: Chatter Rod Removal

Yes, that sounds right. Most guys are saying it is accessed from the top with a 5/16 square socket, of some fabrication. The hole I am feeling, from the bottom, of the frame cross member is tiny; it...

The floor boards? I have the transmission access panel off! I (we) are at a disadvantage because my car is in my shop 4 miles from my home. I have no computer there, so I can't go look at car to...

Chatter Rod Removal

Can someone discuss the process of removing the chatter rod frame attachment? Has any one pulled the block forward enough to clear the rod going through the block attachment hole?

Re: 51 Merc v/8 into 40 ford

I have the engine in my 40 ready to pull out with the exception of chatter rod removal. At the frame, does it take an inserted square socket to remove chatter rod? I have chatter rods loosened at the...

Re: 1940 color question

I'll take your word for it. I guess they have to be seen in person. To my eyes, the 39 Merc (yosemite) Is much lighter than your Acadia green truck, or the photoshopped fenders on the 40 standard...

Re: 1940 color question

Thanks for the Mercury shot. I really like that color! It is definitely lighter than the acadia green, and maybe more reflective than the Cloud Mist. One thing for sure: A 40 ford looks good in any...

Re: 1940 color question

Thanks for the photoshop work, Jerseyboy. You work and post has convinced me I don't want that combo on my Tudor. Leave it for the trucks. The few times I have seen Yosemite green, I have really...

Re: 1940 color question

Yes, I hear what you are saying. I just say a pic of a convertible with the folkstone gray/ maroon combo. It was hideous! It seems more acceptable on trucks. But I do like very subtle contrast on the...

Re: 40 Ford Heater

That is good news Marv. I was wondering about the defrosters. I don't believe my 40 has defroster vents. The heater has a manually operated door on the left side, near the top, I presumed to be the...

Thanks! That is the place where my 46 heater is. My 40 does not have a heater but the previous owner put the fuse box where the heater belongs. What I have for the Fordy is a Zephyr model Tropic...
