Re: Rough measurement to start with "toe" on a '32 front end

I tend to set my "drivers" at 1/8". Yeah 1/32" more than the maximum specified. Makes the car noticeably easier to steer. Also, the front wheels tend to go back to "straight" easier and stay...

Re: 39 generator

V4 = April, 1941 manufacture.

I'm not certain what the C equates to in manufacture year.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with using the later gen. on your '39. There's no need to hook up the...

Re: 39 generator

As Deuce has rightfully advised, '39 generators had a "T" stamped in the body, '40 generators had a "U". No doubt some '39 generators found themselves installed in early '40 models.
I no longer...

Re: 39 generator

You don't have a '39 generator.
The terminal on your later unit that isn't marked is a ground.

Re: 40 ford master cylinder

Dave,
I don't recall the part number. I ask for '48 Ford passenger car. I paid $52 outright about three months ago - that's the most recent I've purchased.
I do not buy their wheel cylinders. No...

Re: Installing Rear Hub On A '40

I really enjoyed my career. Best of both worlds for me. I was able to use my hands and my brain. It was nearly always interesting.
Plus, I was actually paid to make things perfect!

Re: Installing Rear Hub On A '40

I can tell you I had run a lathe with a 6', yeah SIX FOOT swing. The tooling was held in with nothing but taper collets. There were times I'd be taking 3/8" off at a pass.
A properly mated taper is...

Re: 40 ford master cylinder

About three weeks ago, I tossed eight nice master cylinder cores. I tried to sell them on eBay for a $5 minimum bid. No takes even at that price. A couple were already honed.

Re: 40 ford master cylinder

I agree. Still, most folks that know me, know I do things one way - correctly. These cylinders from NAPA have been perfect each and every time.
In fact, they are even the concourse correct casting....

Re: 1938 Deluxe

If I am not mistaken (Dave Rehor - where are you?) much of the "overage inventory" was shipped to the NJ assembly plant for the last of the production year cars to be assembled.

Re: 1936 ford pickup

Heck, even me... the guy that simply can't not restore a car... I'd just make this one safe and reliable. Too cool! Congratulations.

Re: Antique Insurance a little off Topic

All insurance companies are very good at receiving your payment. I might guess they all get a AAA rating for that.

Re: 40 ford master cylinder

The ones available through NAPA are very good quality.
I suppose it comes down to what you feel your time is worth.

Re: 1938 Deluxe

Just want to say Joe... perhaps it doesn't matter to you if this is a '38 or a '39. If not and the title is clear and matches the frame, the price is acceptable to you - go for it.
Just be assured...

Re: 40 ford master cylinder

Ya know, you can buy a BRAND NEW master cylinder at NAPA for $50 - no core charge. They are wonderful parts - I've used many.

Re: 1938 Deluxe

No numbers on the body.
The serial number on the frame would tell you what year the frame is OR what number was stamped in to that frame at a later date.

It was quite common to replace a damaged...

Re: Installing brake switch on 1940 master cylinder

There's no need to bleed nor have the pedal pushed slowly while replacing this switch. Gravity will allow a bit of fluid to escape while you're doing the R&R.

Re: Plugging holes with "Metal To Metal?"

I'm with you... "do it once, do it correctly".
A guy can never be sorry later on with this method.

Re: Plugging holes with "Metal To Metal?"

Nope... I think it'll fall out. It's used for filling pits, not open "wounds".
