Re: Older OEM gaskets vs new gaskets

Old stock cork gaskets can be very problematic. They tend to shrink and / or become very brittle.
There are ways to overcome these issues but why?
Cork? Buy new.

Re: 1940 Ford Gas tank Fuel Outlet fitting pick up Question

This was my way of thinking. That's why I'd posed the query.

Re: 1940 Ford Gas tank Fuel Outlet fitting pick up Question

Why would a steel tank be safer? Just curious.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Made a bit more progress this past week. Ya laugh but here goes:
The trunk lid did not fit as well as I would like. It was in fact too close in many areas to the body. You can note in the photos...

Re: 1940 front tack under dash

Ya know, each of us was a "first timer" at some point. Me? There are days (too many in fact) that I feel I am still a "first timer".

Re: 39 Ford Conv side window fit

Now that I understand this was a kit top, that brings in yet another concern.
Any top "made to fit" is well, made to fit a 'typical" '39 Ford. We all know the quality control was not the same as...

Re: 1940 front tack under dash

The windlace (vertical part at "A" pillar) was originally nailed directly in to the sheet metal all the way to the floor.
I tend to glue mine these days.
The cowl kick panel retainer goes over the...

Re: 1940 Ford Gas tank Fuel Outlet fitting pick up Question

If you look at the bottom of the tank, there is a small indentation - perhaps 2" diameter and maybe 1/4" deep. The pick up is above that. The reason? Debris would naturally go to the lowest point....

Re: 1940 front tack under dash

99.9% correct.
The color matched the dash... maroon for the deluxe models and brown for the Ford V8 models.

Re: 1941 ford p/u 6 cyl on epay

Yep, neat truck. But $7500 to open and a $12k buy it now? Hilarious.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Managed to get the backing plate assemblies done as well. I have found it so much easier to have these ready to install to the spindles and rear axle housings as assemblies than build them on the...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

The body work is going along actually quite well. In a different thread here on the Barn, the question was raised as to the quality of the reproduction rear tool tray pan.
Well, let's say it's...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Sorry but now the project as always slows. The body work takes more time than any other part of my restorations. I'd mentioned in an earlier post that to keep me fairly sane, I will often prepare...

Re: Gas and ways to seal

How about GOOD threads? It may require a different carburetor cover (top plate). They are plentiful and cheap.

The '39 standard grille trim clips work quite well and are reproduced and readily available.

Ian, I think you are thus far doing a nice job with this project and I commend you.

Re: 39 Ford Conv side window fit

Mike, I'd restored enough of these cars to appreciate your frustration.
The issue you deem a common problem is more often than not due to poor restoration techniques and less of a factory assembly...

Re: 35-40 Frane Question

Tom, Do you mean there's a "bulge" on that X member plate that protrudes downward?
