Re: 1946 Generator Mount Stud.

Yes I've seen the studs break before. I guess from over tightening? Regardless, they were probably never engineered to last this long.

Re: 1946 Generator Mount Stud.

What was your failure? did the stud pull the threads out of the intake or did the stud snap?

Re: convert 1949 ford Starter to 12 volt

Sounds like a lot of work for nothing if the 6v starter was happy for 25 years.

Re: No oil pressure [8BA]

There is an idler gear behind the flywheel that drives the oil pump off of the camshaft. I had a shop install the gear backwards so it was freewheeling. I was able to tell by pulling the oil pump out...

Re: silicone brake fluid proof brake light switch

I know this is an old thread but I'm running dot 5 and I'm on my second one of these switches in two years. Does anyone really offer a true dot 5 compatible switch?

Re: Dual chamber Master Cylinder conversion

So you've never seen a single master cylinder completely fail, except for the several times you saw them completely fail. Got it.

Re: Front Tube Shocks in 1936 Ford

Most manufactures list tube shocks for 1948 Ford, and most of the dimensions should be spot on. I've had good luck using them on a 1940. Fronts are Monroe 32207 and rears are 31000.

Re: Radials on a 37. Yes or No??

I have diamondback radials on my '47 and it does drive nicer than my '40 with bias plys, but they don't look as good as the bias plys. The diamondbacks don't turn yellow either though.

Re: 1940 Convertible footman loops

Perfect, thank you! I'm missing the loops in the side panels but I can feel the holes there. As for the straps on the rear, what does the lower mount look like? Or is it stitched right to the tack...
