Re: Ford battery dead in 40

There should be a way to gut your battery and fit another one inside that.
I would give it a try .

Re: head torque method?

I have to agree with Frank Miller. Run the engine until warm to the touch not HOT to the touch.

Re: Project ford G48 from russia

That is a solid vehicle. Appears to have strait sheet metal. Glad that you are going to bring it back to life and keep it in the family.

Re: 35 ford grille

I would agree there . Unless a guy has access to some type of tooling methods . Manufacturing the bars will be a lot of work. .

Re: New 1940 Truck project

Mark ! the truck that you have there is a 1941 called a commercial. They share the same drivetrain as the cars. That is a nice start.

Re: 1933 ford Victoria

On the rear fenders , the rear of the skirtless fender does not roll down the side behind the rear wheel. They are similar to the 32 rear fenders .

Re: 1940 Ford Pickup reproduction parts.

My 41 Ford has Wescott rear glass fenders. They have been on the truck for 30 years . The fit and finish was good and after all these years they still look great.

Re: remove snapped off bolt

Heat bolt up red hot. Quench with water. Next weld a flat washer over the bolt then weld a nut to the washer. Allow to cool.
Done that on several occasions

Re: Lug nuts stuck......

You need to heat the nut red hot then immediately quench in cold water. Do this a couple of times and the nut will unscrew easily.
Been there done that

Re: Celebrating the 4th of July, Alaska style!!

With all the permits to have this event , the state is out there before and after to check that they have cleaned up the carnage. All the vehicles have had all their fluids removed as well.
