Re: 15" Rims

Agreed with many of the above comments. For example, I am still storing two 15" wheels that came on a 64 pickup (that I bought new). They take the early hubcap. So, I think there ought to be wheels...

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

In response to post 64...
Sorry, I don't have a training manual. I have two manuals that are identified as published by Ford Motor Company, one from 1942, and one from 1948. Neither exactly address...

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

We would never be able to agree. Farthest, nearest, whatever, I've NEVER been able to understand what difference it makes. 'Course, I'm new to this game. I only have about 65 years into it so far....

Re: 21 Stud 37mod

This cost me the price of a complete engine job. My machinist (and engine builder) did the magnaflux, but not the pressure test. He is a very experienced flathead guy, and I trusted his call, and at...

Re: rear end identification

There's the 10-spline vs 6-spline pinion deal, which I didn't notice as being mentioned. I opened what I think was a 37 recently, which had the 37-up spring hangers, but had the hollow-tube d/s...

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

Re: Car at auction

Thanks for the post. I knew where the truck went, I just didn't know that you were 'one-in-the-same'. Last time I saw your truck, it was still under the roof next to the garage. My recollection is,...

Re: Car at auction

I can guarantee you, I'm only a bystander. If I were a 'candidate', it would already be in my garage. Thanks for your comment.
I've driven this car a few times, and can attest that I believe it's a...

Re: Car at auction

Just so y'all will know... That is the last car that RAK (Richard A Krist) restored, before his passing. RAK had a restoration shop in Orange County, and has done several award-winning cars. He was...

Re: Banjo pinion removal tool

Yes... For my 34, this is the way I did it. If I can find the old picture, will edit/add to this post.

Re: Battery Tenders

I'd be interested in hearing a little more. I have a CTEK, and I'm not yet a fan of it. It does things that I don't yet understand... Like flashing green or red lights. The manual that came with mine...

Re: Center piece of windshield molding for converts and wagons

Re: wiring needed for a quick start 51 Flat in a 39 pickup

Regarding 'simplest way to wire'... I saw this thing running around a few days ago. It stopped at a parts store that I was at. It has a Ford radiator shell, so I'm sure it's ok to show it here. Talk...

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

Yes, and for good reason. Assembly lube does NOT attract moisture. Never-ever-ever assemble with the pistons wet with brake fluid. That's what causes them to gum up, stick, and eventually rust. JMHO

Re: Removing transmission 1947 Mercury

Re: Mercury Flathead on Craigs list MN

Makes me wonder... I also note that the flywheel and clutch are NOT the Merc version that I am familiar with.

Re: D44 R&P pattern

Back in the days when I was building 44's for Jeeps, I made my own tools to set pinion depth. Not hard to do. And, BTW, setting pinion depth is not 'fool-proof'. The pattern rules, and sometimes a...

Re: '32 woodie - holes in cowl

Re: front axle for 1934 Ford
