Re: Old door seal removal

3M has some really good products. I've used this stuff very successfully in the past. They also have similar in spray cans. Good paint supply stores should stock it, or Amazon. DD

Re: Winter Storage

Try throwing each in a pot of hot water ten minutes before use. Many of these cans now use butane as a propellant. I know that a Bic-type lighter many times wont work if it gets cold enough, until...

Re: Power disc brakes 1950 ford f1

51 MERC...I don't see how using that pedal/MC/booster in your link would allow the use of the clutch pedal in the OP's F1 truck, when looking at the original pedal bracket below. I would find or...

Re: Location of tinfoil to check CR

I've used the little balls of aluminum foil to check for head clearance, but I'll be damned if I understand how you're going to compute COMPRESSION RATIO using the balls. Can you elaborate? DD

Re: 239 V8 serial number decoder

Sorry, but even though your code begins with a "C" like many Canadian serial numbers do, this list of Canadian numbers below doesn't show anything similar to your "code". Suffice it to say that the...

Re: advertising to sell, but doesn't seem to want to sell????

Then, there's the opposite sort of goofball. I had a guy (a registered 'Barn member since 2010, but with only 5 posts to his name) send me a PM out of the blue wanting to know if I had any interest...

Re: 1934 Ford Sedan Delivery

As JSeery indicated above, the 59AB and the 8BA with the half bell bolted-on are effectively identical in length. Note that the half bells come in two flavors...stamped steel which was used on '49...

Re: 39 Ford/Mercury transmission Removal

Look at the number stamped into the flat pad at top of the bell toward front of trans,, above the little window. Hopefully, that number matches the number stamped into your front, left frame rail...

Re: 1934 Ford Sedan Delivery

Not sure why you're having second thoughts. A 59AB is a natural replacement engine in a '34, and if you use a '32-'48 transmission, there is absolutely no need to shorten your drive shaft/torque...

Re: 1934 Ford Sedan Delivery

I'm really curious as to the reason you feel the need to shorten the drive shaft and torque tube. You mentioned that you don't have original engine and trans. What type engine and trans are you...

Re: Identify steering arm?

An arm marked "21-A3590-3 015" is NOT going to be a 1940 arm. "21-A..." denotes a 1942 "first year of use" part. DD

Re: Rear Disc Brake Conversion

From the description(s) on Walden's site, those do not appear to be "COPIES" of "original" Kinmont brakes. They appear to be a similar-LOOKING representation of the early Kinmonts that only hide a...

Re: 39 Ford/Mercury transmission Removal

This is a VERY EASY job with the engine removed. Here's the procedure I would use.


1. Place a floor jack, with a piece of carpet on the jack's saddle, under the
flat part of the case. ...

Re: Identify steering arm?

As several have indicated above, that is a 1940 arm. In a nutshell that "78" indicates 1937 as the first year that part was used. The "3590" indicates a Pitman arm. Once you learn Ford's numbering...
