Re: 39 deluxe hood arm and spring support

1939 Fords in NZ were pretty much sourced from USA made parts except for the engines ( which were cast in Canada ) and the RHD parts.
Windsor Ontario is only across the river from Detroit.

Re: 1938 std coupe hood adjustment

1/4" is the correct size bolts for the front 2.
This may help.
A lot of folk use 5/16" bolts which gives little room for up and down adjustment.

Re: I am hiding in my garage from my wife

My father used to say that married men didn't live longer than single men - it just seemed longer.

Re: How rare is a 39 Mercury?

I had a nice original 1939 Mercury fordor sedan with original leather interior back in 1966 at the age of 20.
I had already owned a 39 std fordor sedan.
The interior of the Mercury was wider, the...

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: 39 ford

Sometimes the arms tend to catch through the slots.
You can feel them under the dash.
Also some WD40 or similar may help lubricate the crank mechanism - again probably need to do it from under the...

Re: 1939 ford deluxe air cleaner

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: Houston Texas,

Pity the Jerry J. Moore Museum has closed down.
I was there in the late 1980's.
A the time it was supposed to have had the largest collection of Duesenbergs outside the ACD Museum in Indiana.

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...
