Looking for widely available muffler and tailpipe replacement for a single exhaust. Any easy fit ideas? I'm concerned that the shipping from the east could be excessive. Thanks: Fred A

Zephyr/Bendix Backing Plate Wear?

Just back from the blaster, the backing plate vs shoe wear may need some attention. Can I just dust off the ridge and go? I've used these brakes on early Fords for many years and never had any issue...

Re: '40 Deluxe Radiator Vents?

I went out to look to see if any part of the welting remained. Not! Other than dirtly and the starboard side a bit faded from excess sun on the south side of a carport. It all was removed years ago...

Re: EAB valve lash

Seems to be more than a bit of confusion where the later versions also introduced valve rotators. I thought I was above all that until the inspection of the 59A in my '40 revealed an unexpected mix. ...

Re: Switching cam gear cover from 2-bolt to 3-bolt

I know what the Zig means with distributor style. My favortite is the Zephyr on the front of a V8-60 where you have room. May be the definition of cool. Fred A

Re: Top of 94 carb

Re: 40-41 Drums/Hubs with 46-48 Backing Plates

Re: Drum and axle compatibility

The Rear wheels should be easy depending. You don't mention the wheels you prefer to run. It makes a bit of difference but not much. If the car is otherwise original, then '35 wheels will work nicely...
