Re: 1940 Ford deluxe help with a speaker grill problem

I seem to remember that the grille fits pretty tightly on the 2 vertical side openings of the hole. If no bodywork has been done to the dash, I would carefully file the flat vertical side parts of...

Re: RM Sotheby’s this weekend

Thanks for that description. Things do look better in pictures! Sounds like it was redone to sell.

Re: Powder Coat Removal??

If it was a good job with powder primer, and epoxy powder, just sand it and paint it with whatever color you want. If it was just sandblasted and coated without primer and cheap styrene powder, then...

Re: 48-6044 Rod, engine radius purpose.

Ford called them "engine stay rods" as they keep the rear end and t-tube from shoving the engine forward. They were discontinued when they went to open drivelines. 8BAs do not have a place for them...

Re: Underhood carnage on my F-1

Yeah, a friend of mine with a 54 Y block had a blade come off and exit the hood. I NEVER stand in line with a spinning fan. They do work harden and break as theorized above. My 40s both have NOS...

Re: Flathead repair

Could be the resistor wire is broken but making contact, heats up and gets intermittent. Try hotwiring the car to the coil and see if it continues to run with no missing.

Re: 81’s tri power or dual 97’s

I am running 2 81s on an old Eddie Meyer manifold and am quite happy with them. I'm sure you could get 3 to run very well.

Re: Wide 5 Artillery Wheels

Be aware that if you use a drum newer then 35, you will need an adapter to safely run the wire wheels due to the lug area of the wheel . It is actually a couple of rings and in the old days they...

Re: Stick On Windshield Antenna For A 40

As long as it isn't grounded and is connected to the inside of the special nut--it should work. A piece of coathanger would work if not grounded.
