Re: electric wipers 40 pickup

I got the item from Drake and eliminated the arm that would go through the glove box. So only the driver side works. Doesn't matter because I never put wiper blades on anyway.

Re: Why Ford Changed the Fan Mount in '42

My 41 Pickup was originally a 6 and the radiator mount and hood latch were forward of the V8 configuration. It gave me fits until I found that out on a rebuild of a striped down car.

Water capacity of motor and radiator

I have distilled water only in my pickup. Am sending it to an area that has freezing temperatures. Want to add antifreeze. What ratio of water to antifreeze? What is the total capacity of liquid?

Re: T5 transmission noise

No vibration and shifting is easy. The noise is only when under load. No noise when I let up on the gas. Why is noise only in top three gears ? Not sure what is meant by endplay.

Re: 1941 Ford Pickup frame-off restore for the next generation

Hooray for doing a great job. When you get to this phase the fun will be over and it will be work to avoid getting run into. A senior woman driving a Honda ran into me to the tune of $6700. Oh well,...
