Re: Batter Tender

Tom, if the power to the building is on a breaker or even an older fuse, any short or large current draw on the AC side of the charger would cut the power, and 1.5 amps at 6v on the DC side of the...

Re: Batter Tender

Tom, I have 2, one automatically senses whether it is connected to a 6 or 12 volt battery, the other (older one) has a switch on the front you select 6v or 12v. I have been using these several...

Re: 40 Heater Trim Clips?

There are a few minor differences between a 40 and 39 heater and I believe the one pictured is a 39 due to color and shape of handles. If you painted the heater gray, put red stripes on it and 40...

Re: 40 Heater Trim Clips?

I think the clips for a 38 deluxe and 39 standard hood stainless which is skinny is the same. I have successfully shortened mentioned stainless to work on a 40 heater.
I know Larry Kaplan and he is...

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

As with any potential problem--it is fine until it isn't. I have set my gas gauges on my old cars to read zero when there is 1.5 gallons left and try to never let it get below 1/4. So I never have...

Re: No fire from coil

As in post #4, when this has happened to one of my cars from just sitting, it was oxidation on the points. You might try pulling some 2000 grit wet/dry paper through both sets of points and see if...

Re: What is the gross vehicle weight of 1941 Ford pickup

Didn't 41 pickups have as an option a 4 cyl and maybe even a 6? If so, there could be weight differences.

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

I would NEVER carry gas in a trunk. I am curious though, is Ralph waiting for the first time it wasn't OK welding and grinding around his gas cans? He likely would not survive or get a second...

Re: Last years body on this years car

I think the answer to the original question is obvious. Of course there are tons of 32 frames with Model A bodies running around, however zero came out of a Ford factory with late 33 VIN stamped...

Re: Turkey Day but The Hawks Are Out There

Unless you have purchased NOS 32 parts recently, you would be shocked at what they go for. I sold a NOS 32 distributor for LOTS of money last year. When I threw out a high price to give myself some...

Re: C69 stock head installation - left vs right

I believe that for replacements, Ford only cast the 6049 head as they were interchangeable. I do know that on my concourse 40, judges look for the 6049 and 6050 heads.
