Re: Dim Headlights on 40:

The dimmer switch is often...

Van Pelt?

Anyone heard from this man quite recently?
I had a client send one of Van Pelts transmissions to me which has been found to have issues. Fortunately, I figured this out prior to installing it. ...

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.
1939 horn sets will fit and function quite...

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: Tight windows

Phil, I have zero clue as to how the tracks are in a 32. I have had some issues with repop tracks for later years causing the same issue you've described.
Each time, the repop tracks were formed a...

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 :)

Re: 40 Door Hinge Right Mirror

I can only guess why your hinge was prepared for a mirror. My guess? Yes, a "holdover". Is your car early as far as you know?
From my limited research of wagons, yes, '40 was the first year they...

Re: Drake 40 dlx headlamp rims (bezels)

The bumper guards fit albeit poorly. The contour does not match the authentic bumper's contour.
The end guards fit. How do you tell a repop from an authentic tip? Two ways.

Re: 1940 Columbia Install

I did this once for a client that didn't care about authenticity. I no longer recall the length but know it should be quite easy to discern.

Re: Hard Starting - Fuel Line Issues

As your engine "runs great" as you state, there is most likely little to be done to make it start great. There is ZERO need for an electric pump on a properly built and maintained fuel system. ...

Re: What kinda needle and seat????

Yep, Grosejet... I've had a few in the shop due to failure. I'd never considering using one myself.
Oddly enough (to me anyway) they each CLOSED off the supply of fuel.
