Re: 59a Main bearings replacements

As far as the postal service is concerned there wouldn't be too much difference in shipping from either Sweden or the USA to NZ.

Re: 1939 ford deluxe air cleaner

I remember back in the 60's most late 30's Ford V8's ( mainly 37's and 38's ) seemed to have the dry type air cleaner.
The oil bath type was available also I believe.

Re: 1939 Ford standard coupe rear guard.

38 std rear guards are a completely different animal - 1 year only.
38 and 39 deluxe rear guards will fit your coupe.

Re: 1937 Flathead lost bolt... Help!

A bit like the old lost golf ball trick.
If you can't find it drop another one and see where that goes.

Re: Compare '39 and '40 Cowl Vent Pivot

Early 39's were riveted.
Later 39 pivot mechanisms look to be the same as the 40.

Re: Drake Sale:

I guess that not as many early Fords are being bought and restored ( or rodded ) today as say 30-40 years ago. Those cars done then are not going to need major work or new parts for quite some time...

37/38 front floor pans.

With Paul Bradley seemingly unavailable nowadays, I have ordered some 37/38 front floor panels from Classic 2 Current fabrication in Michigan.
They look OK.
Anybody had experience with them ?
