Re: Never rent your car to the studios

My 1939 Ford Fordor was in the Hawaii 5.0 episode shoot that flashbacked to 1941. However, it made the cutting room floor and not the final episode. On shoot day in Manoa, the cars were all Model...

1934 Ford Pickup fuel system questions

Ford Barners,

I'm re-doing the entire fuel system from tank-to-engine on a stock 1934 Ford Pickup. The old system was not entirely stock as it had a younger tank, used a 1936 Ford...

Re: Query: How to remove/replace fuel pump valves?

Re: 1939 COE speedometer cable

Re: Tightening the fan belt on a show car

I use a mini-crowbar (about 12 inches long) and takes up much less space than a full-size crowbar and two thin sheets of soft wood. The soft wood deforms rather than scratching the paint. One could...

Re: 1939 COE speedometer cable

Chris,



I have a '47 COE and I've never touched my speedo cable so off-hand I don't know how it's routed. I'll have to take a look and a few photos. Give me a day/two to do that.

Re: 1934 Pickup Fuel Tank Removal Query

To remove the filler neck, you need a spanner wrench. My KR Wilson catalog from 1940 doesn't show they made such a wrench but that isn't a definitive statement - someone more familiar with KR Wilson...

Re: 2 ton ruckstell

It appears so. I have the COE linkage (which is different) and my COE is the short 101" wheelbase, so I don't have the intermediate bracket or bellcrank (4173M on conventional trucks, 4174M on the...

1) Running a 6V horn on 12V uses half the amperage
2) The heavier wiring will prevent damage/destruction of the horn

Both...
