Re: 1940 Ford Pickup reproduction parts.

I'm running Wescott fenders on my '40; very good quality and fit well. All four original fenders were too beat up to economically fix and since it's a two-many door I'm not really concerned about the...

Re: Swap 46 transmission internals into a 37 box

And you may have clearance issues under the cluster gear causing problems installing the main drive gear... but that is fixable.

Re: A bomb hoist for the rear bumper

Those are a nice unit! We had a couple of them at the museum which would have worked for loading ordnance on the center line of the Skyraider but never used them.

Re: 40 fordor Deluxe Package tray

Which is what mine did... you have to get the bends in it or it won't fit correctly. Kind of a pain in the a** to make it work.

Re: 80lb oil pump with a 50lb gauge ?

An 80# pump wearing the motor out???:eek: That's a new one...

Have to keep in mind that all any pump produces is flow; and pressure is simply the resistance to flow.

Re: Manifold vacuum at idle... vs without...interesting observations

So... what about the Fords '57 and up that used ported vacuum? That wasn't done to reduce emissions... and all the other 50s' and 60's engines GM and Chrysler that used ported vacuum? In that era the...
