Re: Brake light switch

Buyer obviously did NOT inspect car ("There is nothing on this car that isn't broken or worn out completely.") or had too many drinks. Wonder what he ended up paying??

Re: 1940 ford pickup brakes

Re: 1933 transmission tower plunger

I hope the missing pin is NOT down inside the tranny. Hopefully you lost it while the tower was off the car.

Re: Wiring Harness Issues - Lights - Need Ideas

If you're happy with the sealed beam conversion I would run the new harness and splice it to the sealed beams inside the shell. JMO

Re: Stop Leak

Are you leaking fluid somewhere?? If not I would leave it alone.
If needed I would use Alumaseal NOT Barr's. JMO

Re: 35 PU Front end leans

Try tightening the passenger's side U-bolt. The bumper is not straight, it's higher on the driver's side.

Re: Economical and effective hydraulic brake conversion.

NOBODY has answered the original question, only their opinion on why to keep the mechanicals.
Many thousands of A's were converted to hydraulic. His car, his choice.

Re: Radiator hot or not

If you shot it and got 180, you're NOT overheating. You may have just overfilled it.
