Re: Wipers

Kid. I forgot to mention that I had a problem with my wipers being VERY slow to operate when I first bought the car. Servicing the wiper motor helped, but I also found that the wiper shaft that...

Re: Wipers

Kid. Not sure what parts came with the motor when you got it, but here are a couple of pics of the one from my '46 Coupe. There are brass "bearings" that go over the pins, that are hex shaped on...

Re: 1947 Dist. questions

Re: Push Choke and Throttle Rod (Wobbly)

Went out and took a closeup. Looks like they would be fairly easy to make with some sheet metal, tinsnips and a drill.

Re: Thread size Oil pressure Gauge

By your description the electrical sender that normally is located in the vertical hole is missing, and the horizontal hole is for the feed to the oil filter, which I would guess you don't have. As...

Re: Oil pressure gauge

I installed a mechanical gauge on my '46, 59A engine, along with the electrical sender for the dash gauge. It was a tight fit to get every fitting in and tightened, but it all fits. In the attached...

Re: Problem with high oil pressure?

What grade of oil are you using? Also helps to know what engine you are running. If you are using something like 15-40, try a lighter oil.

Re: '40 rear brake question: How snug should the drums be on the shoes?

I Installed the Boling Bros kits on my "46, and had the same problem as my4dv8 had. Solution was the same, sand to correct the lining radius. If you look at the measurements noted in the attached...

Re: dumb questions

Re: 47 pickup second gear pops out

My '46 Coupe does that sometimes. I thought it was just something Henry's Engineers designed into the transmission, so you didn't have to put it into neutral when you pulled up to a stop sign or...

Re: drum puller

I bought mine from Vintage Precision for work on my '46, and it is excellent. Some may consider it expensive, but it is well worth the price.

Re: Installing Rear Hub On A '40

Tim. In my experience, when a shaft is machined properly, the finish is nice and shiny. Some machinists can get a finish that is mirror like. When two parts are lapped together with compound, the...

Re: Installing brake switch on 1940 master cylinder

I had a problem with the brake switch on my '46, and replaced it with a switch from Harley Davidson, P/N 72023-51E. I cost me C$30.00 with tax, probably $20.00 US. Works well for me.

Re: Installing Rear Hub On A '40

Not familiar with the brand of tire you are asking about for the front, but assuming you have bias tires on the rear, you should not mix radials and bias tires. There are a lot of posts here, if you...

Re: '40 S-W odometer disassembly
