Re: 1946 Rear Window Install

The instructions on Van Pelt, is it the same procedure if the rear glass has the stainless trim mounted in the rubber?

65 Thunderbird trunk lock mechanism

Hello all,
I'm usually lurking around the V8 flathead section.
A buddy of mine just picked up a 65 Thunderbird. He is trying to put his trunk lock mechanism together and is having trouble with the...

Re: Jack recall, chinese junk from Harbor Freight

I have a couple of the 61196. I got the email about the recall too. I used them a handful of times and never noticed anything unsteady about them. I'm going to return them anyways.

Re: Dual horns - Wiring

Thanks FlatheadTed and Rotorwrench. That is what I was wondering. So at rest with no power, there should be a gap between those points? There were two nuts on the stud. I am just trying to figure out...

Dual horns - Wiring

I bought these horns at a anitque shop. I don't think they are Ford, but they look like what is supposed to be stock on my 41. I need help with the wiring and operation of these. My one big question...

Re: Carburetor Issues - School me

Just as an update:
I took the carb off and cleaned it out. The throttle closed perfectly. It seemed that there was some gunk preventing it from closing fully.
Got it back on the car and found out...

Re: "G" Series 6 Distributor adapters+ dist find??

I just did a quick Google search and it looks like there is an adapter used for the Ford 8N and 9N tractors. It looks like it would fit on a 2 bolt distributor....

Re: Carburetor Issues - School me

I just got a rebuild kit. So I am going to see if I can figure this out myself.

Re: Carburetor Issues - School me

Is the throttle butterfly supposed to be fully closed with no air being able to get by at idle? Currently it has a slight gap, maybe 1/16" of an inch or less.

Carburetor Issues - School me

I have a 226 H-series in my 41 (not stock to car). It has the Holley 847 carburetor on it. Supposedly it was rebuilt, but I can not attest to the quality of the rebuild. It worked when I first put it...

Re: Rear Disc Brake Conversion

I have looked into this and have found nothing. I believe this is something that you would have to design yourself.
I was tinkering with this idea, but I am not a fabricator of any type, so making...

I don't know, I think they are using a CGI chassis.

Re: newer two BBL carb

I am tinkering with the idea of using the Autolite 1100 carburetor from a 65 Mustang 6 cylinder. It works with the loadamatic distributor and is a one barrel like the Holley 847. But as Cmbrucew...

Re: 1951 Starter 6&8

amodel25 is correct. The stock 6 cylinder starter will not interchange with the V8 starter. You will need to either get the correct gear or change your flywheel for the V8. I have a V8 flywheel on my...

Re: 226G vs 226H

It should actually be a pretty much direct swap. Your flywheel, bellhousing and motor mounts should all bolt to the H series engine. I had a V8 in mine and was able to use the flywheel. So a lot of...

Re: 226G vs 226H

I have an H in my 41. Like Rotorwrench said, I had to use the engine back plate and bellhousing from the truck as well as the motor mounts.
I believe the main differences between the G and H are the...

Re: Exhaust manifolds for flathead Fords

The one marked as R5 looks to be a 49-53 passenger side.
Not sure about the other one except that it is also a passenger side.

Re: hidden radio ideas or just slighty out of sight. wood hide door?

What if you got an old suitcase and put a complete system in it? Kinda like a boom box. Then it would only need power going to it and it would be portable. Just an idea.

The long piece that goes across the dash. And actually the instrument cluster can be hard to find.

Re: Dual carb linkage

I did a Google search and found this on the HAMB.
It looks like you can use the stock linkage for your throttle and choke.
