Re: Does your clutch release properly? One test method.

Excuse me for butting-in, but I have to tell you... A good friend of mine, when I first bought my 40' suggested using the 2'nd to first method. I've done so every time and never had a gear clash...

Re: How have you kept your engine warm at night outside?

Re: Ok Ok Guys >>>>>>Come clean!!!!

What you all have to do when you lose something is, throw the rest of what you have away. Guaranteed, the lost item will show up very shortly.

Re: '39-'41 non-corrosive trans lube availability?

Yikes. I almost blew it! Last fall I drained my tranny and refilled it with 85W-140 gear lube. I thought it would be better as it was more viscous than the 90 W that was in it previously. The new oil...

Re: Upper air deflector installation

Thanks 19Fordy. I did as you suggested and it worked wonders keeping my car cool. That's why I plan on installing the permanent deflector.

4dFord/SC. Thanks for the pic. It's the same as what I'm trying to accomplish with my Standard. My problem is there is a support bar under it that keeps it from lying flat on all three sides. Did you...
