Re: 1940 ford pickup tailgate chain install

Gosh Mart, I can't tell you with any authority why there were springs. I can tell you that originally - there were.

Re: 40 sedan rear ashtray(s)

Well, yes and no.
Henry resisted putting lighters and ash trays in cars for years.
Also, this may have been one of those little things that got a person to step up to the "new & improved" Deluxe...

Re: 40 sedan rear ashtray(s)

I am confident that the Deluxe models received wood grained trays.
I am tending to believe the Ford V8 models were not fitted with rear ash trays. Anyone?

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

I'd never heard of the "air pump" theory before.
I find that interesting in a humorous way :)

Keeping the oil down was in fact the primary reason that shield was in place.

Re: fuel pump rebuild....

So to be clear, the truck runs as you'd like for about ten miles and only then it acts up?
It almost sounds to me like a bad coil.
Do me a favor if you are able. Swap the coil out with a known good...

Thanks guys.
Well, I remain confused. Hal, yours appears to be wood grained. Ken, yours appears to be painted.

40 sedan rear ashtray(s)

Re: 1937-40 Ford Flathead V-8 60 Horsepower Parts

The stuff is worth what someone will pay for it rather than what you may think it is worth.
Me? I'd rather have $400 than nothing. Kind of reminds me of biting ones nose off to spite his face.

Re: '40 tailights housings & rear fender brace.

Russ,
They were originally pressed in. You should be able to hammer or press them out. Be careful to back up the sheet metal surrounding the bolt head.

Re: Brake Banjo Bolt

Okay, now this advice I'm going to file away. Thanks for the tip. I've been fortunate for all of these past years - no leaks. But, who knows what the future holds. Thanks again.

Re: Another dumb question...1948 "turtle"

I'll try to do just that on this next 40. In my ignorance of youth, I'd always figured "this is the only car I'm gonna restore" or "this is the last car I'm gonna restore". And, as such, didn't...

Re: Another dumb question...1948 "turtle"

Lighten up? Me?
Rest assured I am fine and enjoying a beautiful day. I'm waiting on another '40 coupe to be delivered in an hour or so. This one from CA. What's not to enjoy?

Re: Any one know what year, make and what the vac. Switch does

It's a wiper switch. If I recall correctly, 1942 through 1947. I am confident someone can weigh in here with certainty.

Re: Car Show Pic

My post was simply an attempt to correctly define a word (restoration) that is way too often misused.
I was not attempting to disparage anyone's vehicle nor their personal interests.
