Re: Anyone driving today

Weather here will be dry so I think I will take the 40 wagon out for a drive, warm up the oils get some non ethanol gas and have some fun on back roads near me!

Re: 1933 Ford Headlights

I will have to look at my extras and see how they are made. DavidG will certainly know the answer to your question. Maybe different "cottage industry" manufacturer?

Re: Hard to Start

Thanks Tom, I haven't owned any old Ford newer then 40. I am ignorant about them so now I at least know that. My hot rod cars have 59 series engines but have no idea how a stocker should be. My 33...

Re: Hard to Start

Darrell S, Yes check the resister or jump around it next time it won't run. Also check the voltage coming to the coil. That resistance wire in the resistor can have a break where it still makes...

Re: Hard to Start

I would check 2 things: The contact brush and plate in the switch on the steering column, and the resistor. Either one can cause intermittent issues. I suspect during the "no start" time the wire...

Locktite Blue is a good thread sealer when applied as to their directions.

Re: Complete 8BA Flathead - what can I expect to pay

You are always at risk. I think current scrap price on unknown engines is the best offer. Complete engines with heads, flywheel etc are 500 plus pounds, empty block with main caps around 200 lbs. ...

Re: Ontario VIN-number font style 1932

I had an early 33 frame that was stamped C18H. (Had the front bumper bracket holes closer together then the later ones)

Re: Need help with wheel trim rings

I have the 15" wheels on my 40 coupe that take the original hubcaps (bumps in inside). I found online ribbed 15" trim rings that look like the original ones on the 16" wheels. They were pretty...

Re: How do estimate the price a rare ( I think) part?

Probably harder to find is the cast part that backs up the bracket on the inside of the sheet metal corner. I was lucky in the 34 sd I used to have still had those even though the body was...

Re: dent removal

Ask around, many of my friends have them as well as I do so someone near you would probably stick a few on for you. On that thin metal you need to be careful removing the studs.

Re: Installing new dual points

If you look at the end of the cam you should notice that the slot is not in the center and there is more metal on one side of the slot then the other. Before the installation step, look at the back...

Re: Need help ID'ing a couple air cleaners.

That left one looks very much like a 40 Donaldson air cleaner. Would fit lots of other years but would be correct for at least a 40 I believe. I have one just like it on my 40 station wagon. A 40...

Re: '40 Deluxe Radiator Vents?

I guess my ability to count past 10 is in question!! Having never had an early one in my hands, I only went by a quick count of the top group of louvers I saw at a car show. So it is 2 per side and...

Re: '40 Deluxe Radiator Vents?

I believe there is 1 more louver on the common later sides and that is why the space between the louvers for the trim is wider on the early version. So some dimensions might be off, be careful.

Re: Car Shakes

Tires can balance on a slightly bent rim. Make sure none are bent. Also it is a long shot but a bad wheel bearing could do this with perfectly balanced tires.
I would double check every thing that...

Re: Craig's List '33 cpe bought

Nice score Dale!! Glad you got it. I personally think the 33 is visually the most pleasing of the early Fords. I feel lucky to own one. Enjoy the heck out of it!

Re: noise when coasting

Perhaps the Universal joint. Do you get out of 1st gear? If the noise goes away in second you have lost a tooth on either 1st gear or the cluster. I am afraid the transmission probably has to...

Re: Changing cam without removing lifters

If it fell out it will go back in. Pull valve out, Run a string to the adjuster from above to help pull it back in place. Or just pull guide and valve out. That certainly is a novel approach you...

Originally the water pump bolts were cad (S7) plated as were the intake manifold bolts.
