Re: Dim Headlights on 40:

Re: 1939 Ford flathead 59AB help

I have several engines and none of them had the pipe installed. If I remember correctly it is a pipe thread 1/4 " (?). Could use a pipe nipple if needed.

Re: 40 horns

My friend has a set of 39 deluxe horns he would sell. They look like the ones in Kubes pic. Just not as nice. If they are the same I can find out how much he wants.
