Re: 33 Tranny to Driveshaft Oil Leak

Re: 33 Tranny to Driveshaft Oil Leak

Put a bearing with a seal on the output shaft; fill the u-joint housing with JD Cornhead grease or the like... if the oil is coming from the transmission, problem solved.

The serial number is...

Re: Identify this engine.

Answer to the first question is not really.

SOME late flatheads have a date code stamped on top of the block by the intake manifold; but that's about it. Most of the numbers you find on these...

Re: Anything on the threads?

Best thing I've found is a teflon based pipe dope... Teflon tape can cause problems is used incorrectly. And you won't need much of whatever you choose to use.

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

I've never bench bled the single master cylinders and haven't had any issues. Dual masters... now THAT is another matter.

Re: '39 Deluxe Heater Tube Fabric

This is what we used for hi-temp applications on aircraft... Good for 500 F.

Re: '46 Odometer Repair

The odometer on my '40 did the same thing at 89999... You CAN get the drum apart, but it's hard to do without messing things up. I started with an E-XACTO knife blade and working from one side of the...

Re: aviation gas

When I was involved with the museum and had airport access I would use 100LL in my roadster for winter storage with no issues. I've run and flown in aircraft with 3 or 4 year old avgas in the tanks...

Re: Crank pulley bolt...Lost again!!

Re: 1952 F1 with a FE 352

Using a FE engine in the F-1 pickup is do-able; just not the way that one was installed. I ran an Olds 394 in my 50 panel truck for years, a real "sleeper".

Re: Interior help, new headliner

I put a Cartouche kit in my '40 two-many door last year. Though not authentic as Kube notes; the headliner fit well and turned out very well for an amateur installation.

Re: 40 Ford Gas Tank

19Fordy is correct. The owners manual and the spec. section of the Service Bulletins both say 15 gal. The Service Bulletins also list 14 gal. for everything from '32 through '38. Then 15 gal....

Re: Filling a brakes system

Gravity bleeding will work well; if the master cyl. is firewall mounted, not so much for under the floor units.
