Re: 1940 ford pickup metal floor board

The floor pan was stamped and formed in its entirety and subsequently installed at the factory.
If the hole in your floor is too small, I might tend to believe the pan has been replaced.
I will...

Re: Anyone recognize this air cleaner?

I am fairly certain Ford stamped numbers in the bottom of theirs, at least in this era. If no number, I'd suggest this is from a different company.
I'd never seen one like this on a Ford.

Re: Oil filter add to 36 lb?

Lawson, I am with you on this one.
Just change the oil every year or 500 miles, whichever comes first. That old flatty will outlast us without a filter being added.

Re: Is the the correct window crank handle for a 1940 Pickup?

GZ, With my old eyes, your photo appears blurry. I've attached herein a photo of the correct handles. Hopefully, the photo will help you.

Re: 39 rear spring

Brian, Un-sprung springs really can't be defined by the measurements you'd observed. Rather, the springs are measured under a specific load.
That being said, how many leaves are in each that you are...

Re: 1938 windshield seal

I prefer glass cleaner to lubricate as it won't come back to haunt you later.
Being certain the channel is 100% CLEAN, as others have mentioned is paramount to seating the new seal.

Re: 1940 ford pickup metal floor board

The same cap was used for a number of years. I probably got mine from Carpenter.

Re: 1940 ford pickup metal floor board

It fits IN the hole but can be a slight task to get it fitted. I lubricate it with a little glass cleaner.

Re: Rear Engine Mount?

It appears you'd refinished and left attached, part of the old transmission mount. Methinks if you'd remove that, you'll easily see there really isn't any mystery to any of this.

Re: 39 Rear Axle

Charlie, You are of course correct. There is no mystery to building a proper Columbia. Having the proper parts is key. Putting it together is simple.

Re: 39 Ford Convertible Door Garnish

I don't have any decent photos of a '39 molding.
I have attached a photo of the proper '40 moldings. If your molding is missing a plate of some kind, you don't have the correct molding.

Re: 39 Rear Axle

A bit more FYI... IF you choose to swap out the entire differential / axle housings, etc. 35 - 36 have different housings.

From what you'd shared thus far, I would think the best route would be to...

Re: 39 Rear Axle

Tom, So, if I understand correctly, you want to swap out the ENTIRE rear axle assembly, not simply the Columbia parts. Correct?

If so, any '39 - '40 assembly will bolt in.
An easier and no...

Dave and Dennis... you two are hilarious.

Re: Local Estate Auction 1935 Roadster Sells for $53,925.00

I'm restoring one of those at this time. Kind of cool. Still, I have to wonder how big (tiny) the woman photographed in the rear seat area was that Ford used for their advertisements back then.

I wasn't aware of Ford offering an opera coupe in 1940.
