Re: Dual exhaust on right hand drive 1940 pickup

That would be great, thanks Eric. I just haven't spent enough time around V8s to know how it's best done. I need to mentally prepare myself for these things nowadays so pics would be fantastic. ...

Re: Dual exhaust on right hand drive 1940 pickup

Hey yes I have to see him about something else once my brakes are done - just having a wee burst of tidying things up on the pickup and need to pick his brain a little.

Hi, yes I haven't gotten to asking anyone local yet, but hoped I might have seen some photos of different solutions for rhd. And when I remembered the manifolds I had stashed away in the shed last...

Re: Dual exhaust on right hand drive 1940 pickup

Thinking they might be a bit hard to find too, and maybe more expensive than working with what I have. I'm keen to see a photo of how others have run their front pipes to see where they track...

Dual exhaust on right hand drive 1940 pickup

Would anyone have a photo of their manifold/headers running dual exhaust on a right hand drive 37-41? Have tried searching old threads but couldn't see any pictures.

I don't have my pickup here...

Re: NZ flathead pics I hope

I'm guessing the odds of two Merc woodies in the South Island is pretty slim! I only know what I remember from Dad telling me way back and I'm not sure what motor it had when it was in Invercargill....

Re: NZ flathead pics I hope

The only Woody I know of that came to NZ was a Mercury, a 46 or 47. If I remember accurately it was brought out here by Lord Freyburg(?) after WW2 and eventually ended up in Invercargill. I believe...

Re: Christchurch KiWi barners

Correct, that's the one - I'll try and attach a photo of me as a 16 year old just before I was told I could take it for a spin! Being right into Model A's back then, it was like driving a Model A...

Re: Christchurch KiWi barners

I'd also love to have a look through there one day - have heard lots about it.
I believe the first early V8 I ever drove is in there - a 1932 roadster and would like to see it again. Was pretty...

I have a 99 motor in a 1940 pickup and one (or two) of the core plugs in the oil pan surface have sprung a leak. Has anyone replaced these without removing the motor?

So far I have removed all...

Re: Rear axle housing repair : my feeback

Hi, I've just come across this post and looking for a repair for my 40 pickup rear axle. Am I right in thinking the hubs of a '35 have a larger outer diameter bearing than a 1940?

I'd be...
