Re: Transmission problem on 41 ford car

Have you tried having someone push in the clutch while you try to move the side levers on the trans?

Re: Igniton gureu's...next step/questions

All electrical troubleshooting begins at the battery. It has taken me a long time to realize that "New" does not equal "Good". Unless you are buying airplane parts, I don't think there is ANY...

Re: Thinking about selling the '34 Phaeton

What a great outcome! I am SO glad Mike Jr. used this forum to get the car to someone who could really appreciate it and not turn it into another belly button car with a sbc, turbo trans, 9" rear...

Re: 32 axle bent twist ?

If it were me, I would use say 3/8 metal rods and 4 round tapered spool pieces to center the rods in the king pin holes. You could make the wood tapered pieces with a drill press and have them a...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Mike, since you have already done many of these, you probably already have enough pictures for you to assemble a "restoration" book of your own for sale. All you would need to do is minimal text for...

Re: Winterleaf Brown

Re: Winterleaf Brown

All the metal brackets and some metal pieces inside my 40 Woodie body are Winterleaf Brown and it is nothing like what you show there. Maybe there are 2 different colors with the same name.

Re: Early'32 Grill shell- chrome??? wall hanger

Dale, I agree with David. A previous owner (maybe owned a chrome shop) plated it to be different. Boy that sure has plenty of patina!

Re: 1940 Ford Wiper Towers Closed versus Open Car

The shape of the 40 casting where it sits on the sheet metal of the cowl is different between the open and closed car towers also and uses a different gasket.

Re: Single stage or base/clear

For me it boils down to where you are going to paint. If you have a PROFESSIONAL downdraft paint booth with zero dust/bugs/debris Base/clear is fine. If you don't have a perfect place to paint,...

Re: HT Lead Coil to adaptor on Distributor. 39 Coupe.

Phil, also make sure the ends of the plug wires SNAP into the inner caps, you have to push really hard for them to get "home" sometimes. If they push in and just stop, they should most likely go a...

Re: HT Lead Coil to adaptor on Distributor. 39 Coupe.

I would ditch the carbon core wires for real wire for anything on a 6v system. There is a real problem if you use too hot a coil on those helmet distributors and have too much resistance in the plug...

Re: Front bumper arms

Do the arms look bent? Bolt the bumper on and see where it ends up after all the bolts are tight. Could be the bumper will straighten it out as those irons are spring steel. Are you sure the fenders...

Re: '33 starter ...click ...click

No, just get the Bendix past the flywheel. I always push the gear as far away from the body of the starter as it will go but I don't think that is necessary.

Re: 1932 PT license plate

Maybe for big truck if it is indeed "pneumatic tires" as opposed to earlier hard rubber. Would explain why a pair. Just a guess. PT could mean many things. Private Transit, Public Taxi.....

There really are no block serial numbers. If you have the transmission that came with the block it will have the VIN of the car it was installed in. That can kind of tell you where in the...

Re: block quandary

Yeah, 10x is an exaggeration but for changes you can feel, the crank (and pistons) are the single most effective thing you can do. I currently have 5 running cars with flatheads in just about every...

The Merc crank makes 10x more difference then the bore. If you are just driving around and not racing, I would leave it at .040. In fact, I have a NOS 59 series engine in my 40 coupe and left it...
