Re: Need source for these DUAL window regulator springs

I had the same problem with my '32 sedan regulators. I fabricated another tab and welded it to the regulator and used two of the common single regulator springs. Works perfectly and the window glass...

Re: Dual master cylinder f100 brakes

It is usually the front port to the front brakes, but I would check with a brake shop or find a diagram on line for that cylinder. On a disk/drum master cylinder there is a large and small area for...

Re: Years of F1 & f-100s with 16"wheels

16X5" wheels could be had as an option on pick-ups thru about 1966. They had the "inner" type hubcap nubs. I was lucky enough to find a '65 F100 in a wrecking yard that had this wheel option. Made...

Re: Calling the wire wheel experts

Pretty sure they are McLeans. I have a pair of 6" and 7" X15". They are sealed with some white epoxy type stuff.

Re: Front End Shake

Coker tires are notorious for being out of round/out of balance. Read some of the posts on the HAMB. I have four new Coker firestone bias ply tires on my fresh '32 roadster--haven't driven it...

Re: Red inner tube

In the 50's at our lake cabin, the red inner tubes were the most popular for swimming--they wouldn't get hot in the sun and lasted for years with no rot.

Re: seats in the woods

Man, I hate to see those two wagons rotting out there like that--they don't look that bad.

Re: gas today versus parts from yesterday

Forgot to mention, the 91 octane premium I use has no ethanol in it. Costs more--worth it to me.

Re: gas today versus parts from yesterday

The problem is the 10% or so amount of alcohol being inserted into the gasoline we have now. I only use 91 octane premium gas now in all my vintage vehicles as well as lawn mowers, snow blowers ,...

1939 Ford Std. station wagon dash

Does the '39 standard station wagon glove box lid have a clock mounted in it? Going thru my stash of parts and found a open car/wagon glove box lid with no clock hole and with a non-locking handle...

Re: Rear window tension spring

I repaired some regulators like that by welding a small tab on for the left side and then used two of the common single springs. Worked like a charm.

Re: removing screw that holds 40 column drop to steering tube

Pretty sure only one "break away" bolt was used by Ford to hold the column to the dash.

Re: Source for good fitting Rear Fender Brace 38-41pickup

Tried Bob Drakes--didn't fit at all. Had to cut them apart and weld them back together. Had one original to use as a guide.

Re: paul bradley floor pans

This guy has been discussed at length on the HAMB forum. His reputation as a business man is in tatters. Too bad, as all agree he puts out a quality product--if you can get it.

Re: How to fix a door that doesn't close tight

All very good advice, but if the door doesn't fit the hole no amount of adjusting will fix the problem. I have had to grind edges on these old ford doors and re-weld the raw edge because the door...

Re: Remembering Motor City Flathead

Yup, got all the parts from him to build the 276" engine in my '39 convertible coupe. Was very happy with the service they provided.
