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

Rule of thumb on drum brakes is .005" clearance between drum and shoe.

Re: 40`Ford Brakes Update from 7/10 post

Problems? I'd never encountered any. I've been "playing" with these old Fords for decades.
Kind of a pain to access the master but other than that no issues at all. Keep in mind that millions,...

Re: Copper coat gasket spray.

I'm with you but you knew that :)
I do use a Walker brand sealant for the exhaust gaskets and between each pipe joint. It is non-hardening - Accustashield®.
I've used this stuff since the early...

Re: Copper coat gasket spray.

I know of a number of folks that have had good fortune with using grease.
Me? I simply won't take the chance no matter how small.
After these cars are restored and completely assembled, the thought...

Re: Copper coat gasket spray.

Ya got me to chuckle. I will continue to use it on head gaskets but Lord knows I understand your sentiment. Yep, I too have had to remove those gaskets, albeit rarely - not a fun task.

Re: Copper coat gasket spray.

I prefer Permatex only because I have used it for decades without a single issue

Re: Pressure plate finger adj

When the plate and disc are new, all three fingers need to be the same - in this case, .750".
And yes, as the disc wears, that dimension will change but should stay fairly even with one another.

Re: 1941 Ford pickup seat

Unless I have mint springs (rare these days) I do this within all of my restorations. Easy to accomplish, reasonable and no one will ever know.

Re: 39 starter circut

If concourse correct (button color) is not too important to you, then eBay is a good place to find a NORS button. You can usually tell if they are truly old stock if the "start" is stamped in the...

Re: Pressure plate finger adj

If you mean all three being .750", then yes, you are correct.

Re: Starting The Flathead

Re: Pressure plate finger adj

That's precisely what I had noted in my previous post (#3).
I had actually built a small fixture so as to make it easy to make these measurements.
The plate MUST be pulled down atop a new disc or...

Re: 39 starter circut

Marko, two things come to mind.
1) Repop dash switches are TOTAL CRAP! I can't stress that enough. JUNK! If you have a repop, find an authentic button / switch.
2) Did this circuit ever work...

Re: Fuel Tank Sending Unit 1936

I thought that as well. Just couldn't imagine why Ford would install a different tank for the 6 vs. the 8.

Then, I'll...

Re: cam install, won't turn all the way! help again please

Ron, I'd learned long ago to make one "change" at a time.
At this point in your journey, I'd suggest you remove the oil pump idler gear & cover. I typically install the cam and only then the pump...
