Re: Truck oil pan gasket - one inside & one outside?

Sam, welcome to the Barn. Gosfast died in the last year or so and I don't know if his business is still in operation. I think there is a discussion on here where he showed more details of the...

Re: 1941-1948 Ford ignition Resistor & (fuse)Breaker Assembly

I don't think the 1940 circuit breaker was rated at 60 amps, that is too high a value to protect the circuit wiring. I think it was more like 30 amps.

Re: 1939 Ford came with no ignition key

The door lock cylinder on the right side door was the same key code as the ignition lock. You might be able to remove that lock to read the code on the side of it. There should be a small hole on...

Re: Canadian Intake Question

I bet you have some great stories about them. I still have one, pretty rusty though.

Re: Canadian Intake Question

I would argue that the problem was the material selected for the o-rings rather than the design of the tubes. Once Viton o-rings became available the problem was solved. The design was most likely...

Re: ORIGINAL brake light switch location 35-36 Ford

The switch mounts to the pedal bracket. I will post some pictures later today of the parts.

Added photos of 1935 pedal assembly and brake light switch, may be helpful to someone in the future.

Re: Canadian Intake Question

I don't know what originally came on it, but it looks like a Corvair oil fill cap might work. No venting in the Corvair cap, it just seals the tube. Corvairs vented through the push rod tube...

Re: '37 trunk handle problem

Macraekw, it looks like your lid has some thickness where the handle mounts, it would probably work if the lid is over 1/4" thick. Be sure to install the gasket that goes between the handle and the...
