Re: 1939 Ford came with no ignition key

To answer your question, if you can get a drill and drill bit to line up with the pin holding the cylinder in the column drop casting, you can drill it (until you see brass shavings) out and then...

Re: Unusual 1940 Deluxe grille

I am old enough to remember when there was LOTS of "Industria Argentina" stuff floating around and my wagon had one of those stamped tin grilles with it when I got it in 1973! Of course it was bent...

Re: Fuel tank dipping & sealing opinions welcome

I used to use a big box of drywall screws as their sharp pointed ends broke all the hard crud loose while sloshing it with your favorite solvent. Acetone, MEK will cut the old stuff that was used...

Re: Banjo oil recommendation

Glenn, Thanks, I had forgotten about those behind the spiders. The one I did remember however kept me from using the GL-5 in them. I only use it in my standard banjos.

Re: Banjo oil recommendation

Glennpm, I only saw 1 brass part in each of my Columbias. Was a thin brass disk with 3 oblong slots. Were there others? I have 1940 units. I use the GL-5 in my 3 non Columbia Fords- 33 phaeton,...

Re: 1940 Ford DeLuxe TEMP GAUGE QUESTION

19Fordy, Both of my 40s all go fully to the left when cold and don't move until there is noticeable heat being generated. Maybe 80+ years of dust is interfering with the downward movement or the...

Re: Banjo oil recommendation

True 19Fordy, will work in both. I believe the GL-5 has more extreme pressure additives then the GL-4. Probably the additive that eats brass. Thanks for the clarification.

Re: Banjo oil recommendation

I am curious as to what brass is in a standard banjo rear end that would be affected by GL-5? Question to both alanwoodieman and 19Fordy? I have Columbias and know there is only 1 thin washer...

Re: caveat emptor

I had a car (1940) on the concourse at the Thousand Oaks meet and I remember seeing that car there I think for display, not judging. Had that distinctive Hawaiian stuff and the top over the rumble...

Re: Wind lace on 40 coupe.

The LB authorized installer did it correctly for me. I do all my own work except the interior installation.

Re: '32 Roadster Rumble Seat Frame Mounting???

You have the springs orientated correctly. However since your car is NOT destined for the concourse, you might re-think wanting the rumble seat before you go to the cost of the upholstery etc. My...

Re: Paint color for 1940 std faceplate instrument panel

My original 46k mile instrument cluster has a cream color with a slight yellow tinge. In my album that is my 40 V8 (std) coupe there is a picture of it. All I did was clean the glass on this...

Re: Axle Key Installation

Most user tightened axle nuts I have removed have been WAY too loose and the hubs usually don't need my KRW puller. Like the picture Dick posted I have removed many cracked axles that were still in...

Good picture Dick in post 13, that is where they almost always break from being run loose.

Re: Help Iím Lost

2.4 at the coil is not enough. Try a "hot wire" directly from the battery and see if it runs fine. You are losing voltage somewhere. You can also try bypassing the resistor. Maybe a loose or...

Re: Axle Key Installation

Have you tried a different key? It looks to me like the end of the key closest to the threads sticks up higher above the taper then the end nearest the bearing. Is this a new repro key? If so, it...

Re: FINALLY!!! Moved and ready to display

Wow, Did you acquire those signs at an auction or have you had them stored for many years? Awesome signs, wish I could afford just one like any of them! Very cool. Congratulations.

Re: Any thoughts on Optima 6V

When kept on a low amp 6V tender I have had excellent luck with them and they have high CCA. I have 5 early Fords and they all have Optima 6V red tops. The oldest one is 10 years old and still...

Re: Which Shaft is Broken

My bet is an axle broken and you got lucky in that the hub/wheel couldn't move outward due to the brake shoes. When you idled the engine in gear was the Ebrake on? It would take a lot of abuse to...

Re: 1934 Wagon colors

I think in general, standard models had a single black horn and deluxe cars had 2 with bright parts or entirely bright. At least that is the case for my 33 standard phaeton.

Re: 1934 Wagon colors

I might be wrong but I think in 34 and up to maybe 39, the wagons were considered commercial vehicles and color combos were maybe different then the passenger cars. Somewhere I think I read where my...
