DEcals, Radio plates, Fuel ration tags

Engine decals. Each decal is $2.50 (which usually is less than 1/2 of what many dealers sell them for). Shipping for 1-5 is $1 (USA). Sorry, but Canadian shipping is extra.


Radio dials are...

Re: Another insurance question

First, this was an hypothetical question resulting from a discussion not an actual circumstance. Second, as for your reply, it may not be as simple as you suggest. Let's assume you make some...

Another insurance question

There are probably some insurance grues out there who can answer this question. During a discussion last night a question came up regarding coverage. If you insure a generally stock car and then...

Re: '35 Question: Engine Ground Strap

I know it is not original but in addition to the original ground to the u-joint shell, I also have one from the starter mount to the frame and a smaller strap from the intake manifold to the...

Re: 1935 with 1946 spindles which drag link?

Seems like this post series is getting more and more confused. Tie rods connect on the bottom. Whereas the '41 drag link (also possible some '42s) connect from the top and use a 11A-3306-B (bent...

Re: 1935 with 1946 spindles which drag link?

Mart-

You are correct, all tie rods enter on the bottom. Only the '41 drag link is attached from the top. I think there has been a misused of terms. The drag link is the what the question is...

Re: 1935 with 1946 spindles which drag link?

Randy-

I bought them new ($5), from a local Ford dealer in 1960 when I was converting my '35 over to hydraulics. As I recall the part number was on the tags. They are definitely untouched '41s.

Re: 1935 with 1946 spindles which drag link?

To the best of my knowledge the only year Ford used a top fit drag link spindle was in '41 (11A-3105). I have never seen a round spindle only the square type but that doesn't mean a round...

Re: 1935 with 1946 spindles which drag link?

Kevin-

You have a '41 spindle NOT a '42-'48. Again, use a 48 pitman arm and a '41 drag link..

Re: 1935 with 1946 spindles which drag link?

Kevin-

I am not sure what you are trying to do with the '41 drag link. The only reason you would need a '41 drag link is if you are using a '41 spindle. All '35-'48 spindles require a bottom...

This subject comes up frequently. I have gone though this several times with '35 and '36 steering and hydraulic conversions. A few years back I wrote an article that appeared in several...

Re: 1936 Temperature gauge work with a 1948 Flathead?

No problem. Just use an adapter. I believe it is 1/2" pipe to 5/8" thread. Common.

Re: Awwe Crap!

I just went through pulling apart a rear axle on a '36 without removing the entire rear axle assembly from under the car. Generally speaking everything went rather smooth . If you do need a rear...

Re: '36 3 Window Coupe

This is getting weirder and weirder. In case you missed it the listing has ended and relisted. It no longer is "perfect" it is now described as "Complete and stock except the new brakes, untouched...

Re: '36 3 Window Coupe

I also wondered about that. It could be a heater switch but more likely I think it is a push-pull light switch. The reason I say that is there appears to be a headlight relay on the inner fender. ...

Re: '36 3 Window Coupe

I am in agreement with Bluecar on this. Like most guys a price of 66K (reserve not met) requires a closer look. Some of the things I see "suspect" is one of the under-dash gauges is a fuel gauge. ...

Re: Difficulties installing & torquing rear drum - Help!

Sounds like a thread problem. If it is, you only have two choices, re-thread or replace. To re-thread don't use a normal 5/8-18" threadchaser or die. What you need is an axle threader (note...

Re: 17 tooth speedometer gear in a 1940

I don't know what to tell you about your '40 but I have a 17 gear in a '36 (don't know the gear vendor source) and have no problems.

Re: 36 roadster floor mat

One of the BIG problems with a rubber mat is the likelihood of it tearing especially when checking the battery. Interesting, in Canada they had a 1936 "special deluxe" which had factory carpeting.
