Re: Australian 1940-1941 Ford Open Cab Pick-Ups

In the book "Ford Trucks since 1905" page 212 shows a similar truck called an Australian artillery tractor. There is also a 39 one. They were said to have "roadster" tops.

Re: Won't Start when Warmed Up

You could check voltage to starter both cold and hot when it cranks slow. Should tell you where the trouble is or at least narrow it down.

Re: Helmet Distributor Rebuild

Save yourself future grief and notch the condenser ground so you don't have to remove the bolt to change it. You can just loosen it a couple turns.

Re: Initial start on new engine

I would not warm it up without water in it. Only needs block sealer if it leaks. You can achieve oil pressure by cranking it with the plugs out. If it's 6volt a 12 volt battery will turn it faster....

Re: 91A-8600 Radiator fan

The one I got for my 39 deluxe has a second layer of metal on the blades where the rivets are. Most others I've seen don't have this. It has a 3" hub.

Re: 39 coupe headers

I think the hardest part will be changing manifolds. If there is nothing wrong with your current system I wouldn't change it.

Re: 91A-8600 Radiator fan

I believe Merc is longer than the ford due to the longer front end.

Re: Misery loves company

I have replaced many sockets that seem to go missing only to find them mixed in with the metric ones. Usually happens due to my son using my tools.

I is also very important to use the correct length bolts as most common ones are too short or too long.
