Every one I know goes to a gas station with his car and his lawn mower can of gas, fills it up and returns home with it to fill his lawn mower/snow blower etc. Ditto for guys buying gas for their...

Re: Dual horns - Wiring

There should not be a gap between the points at idle. The contacts are used to close the circuit so the electromagnet pulls the diaphram down. The missing nut then pulls the lower points bridge...

Re: Body Mounting Pads 1937 1938 1939 open car & 1940 1941 Station Wagon Sedan Delive

I don't believe 37 Ford cabriolets had body mount pads as the body is not rigid enough to stay in shape. They had anti-squeak strips along the frame. Then you shim to make things fit.

Re: Gearbox Question 1939 / 1940

But for your "39" shift top to work it should have the big fork with the 81A- part number embossed on it. Early 39s used the older fork.

Your sense is right. Coupe or Fordor will fit.

Re: what is correct wiring for a 12v system

Going back to your diagram, unless the alternator is faulty (say a shorted diode), you will never see a discharge as the alternator should only produce current in the right direction. Then with the...

Re: what is correct wiring for a 12v system

In a typical application, the ammeter is placed between the battery and the solenoid. It indicates if the battery is draining or being charged. So the amperage it sees is a lot lower than what the...

Re: 2019 Iola car show

As with any swap meet, if you are looking for specific parts, go on the first day. I have been selling there for 30 years and half of my sales are on the first day, dropping by more than half on the...

Re: Best way to lower the front '41 coupe?

You really cut down on spring travel with a reversed eye spring (which is the cheapest and easiest solution). If you want to keep the good ride, a dropped axle is in order.

Re: Tranny for 60 hp Flatty

In the US Fords, it was from 1937 to 1940. The case was always different (obvious different bellhousing) but the same length as a "big block engine" trans so they would both easily fit into the...

Re: 37 grille trim fit

Re: 39 transmission questions

Is your old style synchro new? The problem with the old style is that the entire synchro has to be replaced if it is worn. With the newer style you just replace the synchro rings. To see if it is...

Re: How do I tell if my car has been converted to 12v?

In an old car, about the only things affected are the lights, gauges, coil and perhaps a radio. Safest to test with 6 volts. With a 6 volt battery, positive ground, turn on the lights. Are they...

Re: muffler or mufflers

As to your question of 1 muffler versus 2, remember your engine displacement is not much bigger than the smallest modern engines and the revs are a lot smaller. So your airflow is less than most...

Re: What steering box is this?

Were you literally looking only at the gearbox or all of its accessories? The same gearbox was used from 1937 to 1948. The switch control on the bottom was for 37-39 as mentioned earlier. The...

Re: Want o go highway speeds ??? Need opinions.

With stock tires and a 3.78 rear end, the Service Bulletins say at 60 you will be at about 2750 rpm which is a little high for prolonged flathead use. So a 3.54 will get you at about 3.54 / (3.78) x...

Re: 38-39 fender differences

38 \Deluxe and 39 Standard front fenders are the same. The inner fender panels are different but could work. 38 Standard is different.

Re: 1937 Ford carburetor

After the war, Ford used this location for the vacuum for the wipers. I think the wiper works better getting vacuum at this location instead of between two intake ports.

Re: mounting a fan on an aftermarket intake

An old hot rod trick was to cut down a fan mounted generator to essentially keep the front and rear of the generator with about 1 inch of the barrel. You can then use the Offy intake bracket.

Why don't you boil some water in a pot on the stove. When it is bubbling good, take the pot to the car and put the sensor in it. The water should still be above 200 degrees and the sensor should...
