Re: 1938 battery

Alan, I can only speak to the '39 (standard) batteries I'd received from that company. They were, as you'd correctly stated, not identical to the authentic and did require some modifications to the...

Re: 1938 battery

They were painted from the factory. At least in '39 and '40. I can't speak with authority of other years.

Re: 1938 battery

Alan is 100% correct of course.
Still, if you want it to appear fairly close to authentic, the 2HF will do the trick for the most part.
I have used these by modifying the hold down components in...

Re: Terrible mistake at a professional auction

David, I am 6'2" and have adequate leg room in my '36 roadster. There could be a bit more (leg room) to make me super comfy, but hey, this is a '36 Ford. I get it :)

I'd never driven a phaeton so...

Re: Terrible mistake at a professional auction

These models, even truly nice ones that are correct have taken a nosedive in value in recent years.
In my opinion, this one sold about right. Fun car for not much money.

Re: Starter to oil pan bracket

Alan, What am I missing? I have never noticed a "cut out" in that area. Got a picture?

Re: 1940 Ford coupe headliner installation

Rear windows must be removed. Glue the lining in very well. I prefer 3M contact cement. Once it is very dry, using a razor, remove any material from the edge that the glass (seal) would push against....

Re: 1940 column shift clip

There is a thin wave washer beneath the circlip.
I don't believe they have ever been reproduced.
In the past, when I have needed one, I have utilized the clip that holds the brake lever to the...

Re: Starter to oil pan bracket

Lawson, keep in mind, the 60HP bracket is not the same as the 85.

Re: Starter to oil pan bracket

That one will work but is not correct for a 39 - 40 engine.

Re: Starter to oil pan bracket

I'd figured cases were cracking due to no bracket and that's why Ford added it.
I know in the 60's, Chevy added a bracket to their starters. Many guys would not reinstall it (kind of a pain to do...

Re: 40 Ford sedan location of choke & throttle rod joint?

I can only offer a guess as to what you have there. A photograph would go far in offering a definitive answer.
My guess?
well, if you in fact have the correct rods, then I'd say you have the pieces...

Re: Starter to oil pan bracket

I'm not 100% certain but believe these were first installed by the factory on the '38 models.
They were for certain, installed on all '39 models through at least 1948.
Although this bracket could...

Re: KR Wilson spring spreader

David,
Like you, I made an adapter of sorts to R&R the '33 - '34 front springs. I'd also made an adapter to R&R that danged curved rear spring.

Re: Brass exhaust manifold nuts

Lawson, On the 85 and 95 Hp engines, studs were installed in the block and steel hex nuts with washers were utilized to secure each manifold to the block.
The 60HP engine, as I'd noted in a previous...

Re: Brass exhaust manifold nuts

I have no idea why Ford used studs and nuts on the 60HP engines.
Six studs (352675-S) were threaded into each side of the engine block and six hex head brass nuts (350980-S) attached the manifolds...

That was a 60HP thing.

Re: Early Ford V8 Club 2023 Grand National Meet

Thanks for the heads up, David.
I'd just now printed off the requisite pages and will send mine in tomorrow.
My plan is to bring a number of cars.

I am really looking forward to this meet!

Re: front fender exchange

Karl nailed it.

I will add... the 39 front fenders have a different shape at the lower - front edge. If you want concourse correct, then you'll need to find '39 fenders.

I'm not certain what the "hot rod style" floor appears like.

The stock floor, with the strengthening ribs will be stronger than a flat piece of sheet metal. It will also be easier to...
