Re: Flathead Oil Pan

I thought all truck pans had the big cleanout plate on the bottom?

Re: 1940 Ford fuel gauge issue

Alright so I decided to revisit the stock sending unit. I popped the cap off and looked at the links that 19fordy posted. I see the points and everything appears to be in decent shape, although a...

Re: 1940 Ford fuel gauge issue

Are you sure about that? The car is negative ground. With the sending wire off it reads E, when grounded it reads F.

Re: 1940 Ford fuel gauge issue

I'll bump this back up with some more information. The car is 12v, but I'm using a Mustang instrument cluster voltage reducer like this to power the fuel gauge. When I ground the wire that goes on...

Re: Feedback on by pass spin on oil filter

Ironic isn't it? I wouldn't use the filter in the original post just because it's so damn ugly.

Re: Head Bolt continually weeping

In my experience, stuff that leaks doesn't generally stop leaking on it's own. I've had the same issue, I've taken the offending nut off, slopped on some permatex teflon thread sealant on the stud,...

Re: R-10 OD Governor?

The reproduction solenoids are junk, I had one in my car and I didn't get a summer out of it. I started scouring NOS Delco solenoids and now have those with no issues in two cars.

Re: carlisle

I went Thursday, we had a flurry, maybe even a dusting in the morning. Turnout seemed as good as pre-rona. I did pretty good, spent about $500 bucks and found everything I was looking for.

Pickup tailgate

I'm looking for a tailgate for a household project, I'd prefer a '40 tailgate with the V8 stamp, but I'd be interested in anything. Rough shape is okay, not looking to spend a ton on this. Thanks!

Re: No oil pressure on new build

I had an issue on an 8ba where the idler gear in the back of the block that drives the oil pump was installed backwards, causing it to not mesh and not spin the oil pump.

Re: Radiator Question

Could be 41, they dropped down like a 40.

Re: Early Allen vacuum meter

Just clean it up with some chrome or plastic polish. I think the yellowed lens gives it character as long as you can still read the instrument.

Re: '39 running boards?

I replaced the rubber on my '40. As long as your metal structure is in good shape it's a good way to go, but it's a lot of work. You have to strip all of the old rubber off. I used a torch and a...

Re: Edmunds four barrel air cleaner

Cal Custom used to make a cast aluminum adapter ring to use a more modern air cleaner on the early 4 barrels, I have one on my 331. I think I've even seen newer plastic versions.

Re: Flathead Cams

I currently have a max 1, an 88, and a 400jr. I'd go with the 88 for what you are looking for.

Re: Harmon Collins build thread ...

I'm still curious to hear what you think about the reproduced rotor and center cap that was being offered a while back? I had a set but wound up letting it go.

Re: Reproduction Hubcaps

I always thought the early repop caps that didn't have the name, or had a different name in the same font, were pretty neat even if only as wall hangers. Unfortunately the new reproductions look nice...

Re: 1940 dashboard

When someone restored my convertible in the '70's they painted the dash woodgrain. It reminds me of an old console radio.

Re: changing oil on 39 for flathead?

I mean, I guess for a driver it's okay. But damn that's ugly.

Re: Who's gonna fill their shoes?

Well I turn 37 today and I'm pretty hardcore into old Fords. But I have been seeing a lot of good deals on cars lately as the owners pass on or it just gets to be too much to work on them.... It's a...
