spark plug wire conduit ID?

This is an odd one to me. Any idea what it's for?
Note there are only two holes on the side of the tube.

Re: Tailgate anti-rattle balls (1938 SW)

I like this idea. IF I ever find the need, I will try this. I used a pipe vise to hold the ball. It worked rather well.

Re: Tailgate anti-rattle balls (1938 SW)

Keep it (rubber ball) wet with mineral spirits. That will help a lot. Use the pecking method to drill. Go to a shallow depth, retract the bit, go a little further, retract and repeat.

Re: pre-war bumper jack ID

Steve, That company supplied jacks to numerous auto manufacturers. The one in your photo is NOT Ford.
Perhaps you might inquire on a GM forum?
By the looks of it, I think yours is an after market...

Re: pre-war bumper jack ID

Steve, It's not Ford. It doesn't match any supplied by Ford through 1948.
This basic design of jack (with some design changes) was utilized by a number of auto manufacturers as well as after-market.

Re: Wire splicing

My first piece of advice is to NOT splice. Rather, replace the harness. If splicing is necessary, it makes me think the harness is old and becoming brittle (not safe).
If you insist on splicing,...

Yep, postwar and I'm fairly certain they are after-market.

Re: 1938 Wagon - interior battery box enclosure

ARGGHHH! I just sold a very nice original. It would have pleased me had it gone to your project.
It was some type of fiberboard.
It seems to me reproductions are available although I don't know...

Re: Fog Lights

You'll be happy with the Drake lamps. I sold a pair three years ago that were still in the box. Got $500. I figured they'd be worth more but I suppose like a lot of our hobby, prices are going down....

Re: Mud & water shield?

If Drake isn't out of stock, what he has (had?) was good quality.

Re: Fog Lights

Probably Drake. They were at the time pretty darn good quality. The lens is not quite the same size and can't be replaced by an authentic lens.

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

I'd recently purchased good quality cylinders from Mike Driskell. I would suggest you replace the cylinders. Considering the minimal cost, just do it.

Re: A ground for running lights

Think of the ground as a path. That path must be continuous.
Yes, you scraped the paint off the bumper arm. How about the paint between the arm(s) and the frame?
At this point, I'd suggest you...

Yeah, it's been a few years since I'd restored the '39 and well, the memory is not what it once was. Thanks to both of you for jogging my memory.

Re: Remove rear quarter on Woody

Look closer... there's a bunch along the sides. Pain in the butt to remove them.
Did you remove the leatherette roof material?
