Re: 40 pickup

I am searching for a good example of an unmolested and unmodified 40 tudor and a 40 fordor.

Specifically, I need information on the carpeting.
If you have one that you KNOW is stock, please...

Aren't there rubber parts in those cylinders?

Re: Gap between rotor arm tip and distributor cap contacts

Ford called out for .015" - .018" gap between the rotor and cap terminals. I don't know why they decided that was the specification their assemblies should be built to. However, if that gap didn't...

Re: Location of Jack and lug wrench on 1936 Ford Pickup

I can only hazard a guess re your '36 and say beneath the seat.
That's where the '40 PU tools were intended to be stored.

Re: 39 ford pickup

Are you intending to go "stock" or are you modifying?

Re: 1948 ford convertible top cylinders

I was careful to state 1940. I know little about post war cars. I could only hazard a guess there would be some type of bushing there. If not, it (canister) would rattle.
Of course common sense did...

Re: 1948 ford convertible top cylinders

In 1940 they had a rubber bushing in there. Nearly every car I've restored those bushings were long gone or only a slight fragment remained.

Re: Grounding starter button issue

Wise? Hardly. Still, in a LARGE part thanks to you, I have learned a thing or two.

Re: Grounding starter button issue

Yes that does work. Still, by adding an unseen wire, the difference in how well (better) the button works is amazing. The first time did this little "trick" I was so amazed, I have repeated it with...

Re: E Brake cable lube

It does, but even then won't allow the formation of rust beneath it.

Re: E Brake cable lube

I lubricate mine while it is hanging - prior to installation. I use a CRC product similar to Liquid Wrench. It flows in to the outer cable housing and allows some reasonable confidence that it got...

Re: Grounding starter button issue

I solder directly to the body of the switch as that is precisely what needs to be grounded. The two clips are supposed to offer that affect but don't necessarily do so, especially with well painted...

Re: Body Number Tag- '38 Convertible

Re: Flex fuel line with one way valve

Age has little / nothing to do with quality.
Was it rebuilt? If so, by whom? When?
Is it a reproduction?

Re: Grounding starter button issue

I solder a thin wire to the body of the starter button and connect the opposite end very discreetly to the body (NOT the dash) near by.
I have found this to be a huge help.
This little "trick" is...

Re: Alternator to generator conversion

That's because your truck, like my vehicles was maintained and repaired correctly as required. 6v. positive ground works just fine.

Re: 41 pickup tech question.

One on each side as you'd thought. A total of two, not four. Available here in the states at any decent hardware store.

Re: Flex fuel line with one way valve

As Tinker has quite accurately stated, if your fuel pump is rebuilt correctly there is no need for flex line with a check valve.
That's simply a "band aid" approach to patching vs. a correct repair....

Re: Please help ID these springs.

That's aftermarket.
Also, the width is of little help in identifying a spring unless you know the length at a prescribed height / weight.

Re: 1940 Inner Fender Yoke

The bolt comes up from the bottom. Thus, the spring, flat washer, slotted nut and cotter pin are all atop the fender brace. There is a small piece of what Ford termed 'anti-squeak' material between...
