Re: nasty odor

Am I missing out on something. Nobody has mentioned a recovery tank. A 4 lb cap has been mentioned, but no sealed cooling system. Hey, this is a 39 Ford we are talking about isn't it? No pressurized...

Re: 1934 Wagon colors

The guy with the 34 wagon needs to give his 33 crank hole cover/shield to the guy with the 33. Then they would both be correct as far as that bit of trivia is concerned. 34 didn't have a crank hole...

Re: Banjo wheel repair

I had a couple of broken spokes welded by a very experienced stainless steel welder. Its a PITA to repair one of these banjo wheels, but it can be done. Use PC7 to repair the outer rim.

Re: 1940 merc door removal

Re: 35-36 pickup dash lights

I THINK I have figured out my problem. The large openings, for light to shine on the gauges, on the gas/temp gauge, are apparently on the bottom of the gauge and the very small hole is on top where...

Well, just damn. My memory failed me yet again. Glad I can still remember how to walk, albeit at a slower pace and in a somewhat staggering pattern. LOL

Re: 35-36 pickup dash lights

I am presently using an LED bulb. (I'll see if I can find the little boxes that probably have the bulb number on it if that will help.) It lights up the speedometer very well but not the instruments....

Re: 35-36 pickup dash lights

Re: More 39 pu questions please?
