Re: Cleaning aircraft aluminum

A spray bottle of MAC 1458 aluminum brightener from NAPA will clean up little things like they do to big things at the truck wash.

Re: Can I Use These Late Zephyr Front Brakes?

You could make your own version of the adapter rings, with the B register on the spindle side and the Lincoln pilot on the backing plate, drill for 3/8" bolts, and do the common notch for the bolts...

Re: Perch pin removal help

Re: 39 Brake Questions.

In the past we took a pair of good drums off some two piece '36 hubs and put them on later hubs after removing the worn drums.

Only hassle was finding enough correct studs; lot digging in bins at...

Re: V8 60 king pin lock bolts

If the 9/16" lock pins fit; they are the ones to use, and the notch on normal '37-'41 kingpins will be in the right place.

Since your axle is NOS; maybe it's a sign that Ford possibly changed the...

Re: Perch pin removal help

If stubborn; I've found that heating them and using an air hammer works in most cases; a real air hammer like a CP 717 not a Harbor Freight version.

If they need to be drilled; I cut the top...

Re: 34 pickup steering arm question

While there is other stuff going on in this picture; it illustrates what COOPMAN is describing.

Re: Mounting ‘Tubman’ condenser on dome distributor

What I would call a "tab" in this case: piece of 5/8" to 3/4" wide material with a 5/16" hole to fit the bolt and a smaller hole to match your P clamp.

A flat piece could be attached with the...

Re: Mounting ‘Tubman’ condenser on dome distributor

If you made a tab, either straight or bent, with a 5/16" hole and a smaller hole for the clamp; it would give you more leeway in getting the condenser in a "happy" location.

oops; slow to respond.

Re: Mounting ‘Tubman’ condenser on dome distributor

Would it be possible to make a tab off this bolt and mount the condenser crosswise horizontally?

Re: 2-Door Flat Glass Power Window Motor Conversion

Not sure what brand you are looking at; but not all the products are equal. I've worked with several kits from Specialty Power Windows; good stuff.

Also dealt with an Autoloc set-up not so good;...

Re: Master Cylinder bracket- 39 Pickup

Maybe post some pictures to see what you have going on; because riveted on is not at all normal for Ford.

Re: 40 ford emergency brake cable removal help

Last rusted in cable I had; I clamped it to a 1/4" bolt with a cable clamp and pulled it with a slide hammer. Lots of rust build up had it really held tight in the tube.

Re: T & TT Length

In my old neighborhood, there were many "Model T" garages with half height extensions added to the back wall to fit the nose of bigger '50's cars.

Maybe you could do the same to a "late model"...

Re: 1936 Phaeton glove box door - Rubics cube ?

Can't see why it would be any different than a closed car glove box, take the spring thing off, take all the screws out, slide box back, and rotate the hinge leaf around, and lift the door out.
