Re: 1940 merc rear end?

All you have to do is look at the Ford Chassis parts book to see that for 39 and 40 112-116 (meaning Ford and Merc) uses the SAME rear axle shaft 81-A 4235 so how could the 40 Merc rear be wider? ...

Re: hammer size

When I use mine I clamp a thick piece of metal to act as a straight edge and rest the flat of the stamp shaft against it to make all the stampings in a straight line and not tilted. A heavy piece...

Re: Painting polished stainless steel

The "etch" part of self etching primer is to stop oxidation (rust) of ferrous metals and wouldn't likely do anything to stainless which is a high nickel alloy that does have a minimal ferrous...

Re: New Clutch Slipping

Good question from Richard crow. A 9" clutch with an overdrive trans with tall gears would be pretty much guaranteed to slip a 9" clutch in high gear. Besides the rear end ratio, how tall are your...

Re: oil pan modification

I never have any problem, I do wear latex exam gloves but never had a mess or any splashing. How far does the oil drop before it hits your container? When the plug gets close to the last threads...

Re: 1940 merc rear end?

I didn't see this posted so I looked in my 40 Ford and Mercury Chassis book and it lists the same axle part number for both 112 and 116 meaning Ford and Merc so the width must be the same.

Re: New Clutch Slipping

Not sure if this could cause your issue but a friend of mine (who owns a machine shop) bought a Speedway adapter for a GM 4 speed and because he is a machinist, he checks everything and the machining...

Re: Drive Shaft Shortening

Why not use the 34 driveshaft and t.tube? Or are you not replacing an existing rear end? Check with any of the Old Ford parts suppliers in the area, they would know who can do this for you.

Re: should it be of "concern"?? What do the experts say

Could be the sender is near the end of its service life if the thermostats are fine and all the electrical connections are clean and tight.

Re: What Is The Best Bondo To Use Over Body Solder??

I use "All Metal" first, it is harder to sand but stronger then the polyester filler but any brand would do I am sure. I always remove all the lead I can first with a torch and wire brush.

Re: 40 hood release pin

Re: white steam from breather and water tailpipe

I don't see how the cylinders could look that bad after 70 miles. I think you were given an engine that was not rebuilt but were charged for one that was. Maybe even a junk one to begin with. Take...

Re: Another one shipping ARDUN 8BA with sound

Yeah, last time I considered buying the heads Orosaco made, the heads themselves and all hardware (rockers etc) were about 30k.

Re: Removing Engine from '40 Ford Question

I too have that KRW tool Ken has that fits in the valley and it is quite handy, quick to put in and take out, those 2 pins keep it from moving.

Re: Engine Builders Question

Would stuffing a rag down in the cylinder and using a ridge reamer take that sharp edge away? You could vacuum out any filings created. You might be able to taper the cutter to make a chamfer. ...
