Re: Grounding starter button issue

I solder a thin wire to the body of the starter button and connect the opposite end very discreetly to the body (NOT the dash) near by.
I have found this to be a huge help.
This little "trick" is...

Re: Alternator to generator conversion

That's because your truck, like my vehicles was maintained and repaired correctly as required. 6v. positive ground works just fine.

Re: 41 pickup tech question.

One on each side as you'd thought. A total of two, not four. Available here in the states at any decent hardware store.

Re: Flex fuel line with one way valve

As Tinker has quite accurately stated, if your fuel pump is rebuilt correctly there is no need for flex line with a check valve.
That's simply a "band aid" approach to patching vs. a correct repair....

Re: 1940 ford Cowl vent handle differences??

The one in your posted photos to the left is a VERY early design here in the USA. I can't speak for exported vehicles.
The two different designs had NOTHING to do with whether or not a radio and /...

Re: Please help ID these springs.

That's aftermarket.
Also, the width is of little help in identifying a spring unless you know the length at a prescribed height / weight.

Re: 1940 Inner Fender Yoke

The bolt comes up from the bottom. Thus, the spring, flat washer, slotted nut and cotter pin are all atop the fender brace. There is a small piece of what Ford termed 'anti-squeak' material between...

Re: Fuel pump rod - what is the purpose of umbrella?

Well, yes and no.
The push rod is in fact determined by the intake. However, FACTORY aluminum intakes required a push rod that was approximately 1" shorter than the FACTORY cast iron intake required.

Re: Tail light help, please

Also, the hi/lo beam switch is often the issue with these '40 Fords. Lord knows I've traced this issue to that floor switch many times.
Me? I'd add a temporary ground to each tail lamp bucket so I...

Re: 40/41 pickup windshield install. What to expect?

Mart, As you're experienced with the rear window, you'll find the fronts very similar if not a tad easier to install. And yep, you are way over thinking this one. In my opinion (I've done dozens) the...

Re: Tire size 1937 ford pickup

6:50 x 16" were optional at the factory and really fill the wheel openings nicely. Still stock but with (in my opinion) a better appearance. The 6:50's are about 2" taller and in "real life" about 1"...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Wow! That looks like a great car to start with. Is it as solid as it appears? Fairly complete? Are you planning a concourse type restoration?

Okay guys... THANKS for all of the (too) kind messages.

Re: 36 wood grain company - original stamp

Ya know, you bring back a faint memory and I think you are 100% correct. It seems to me there was some kind of patent infringement by Ford. Hey Rehor, can you add anything to this???
