Also, if you are putting in a new bottom channel notice there are drain holes in the wood that you need to punch holes in the channel to line up with. At least on my 40 it was this way.

Re: 33 -34 woodgrain samples

David, it has "Oxford Varnish Corp 1-33" on the back. Would they have been making 34 garnish moldings in January of 33? Maybe a prototype?

Re: Batter Tender

Tom, if the power to the building is on a breaker or even an older fuse, any short or large current draw on the AC side of the charger would cut the power, and 1.5 amps at 6v on the DC side of the...

Re: 40 Heater Trim Clips?

There are a few minor differences between a 40 and 39 heater and I believe the one pictured is a 39 due to color and shape of handles. If you painted the heater gray, put red stripes on it and 40...

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

Re: What is the gross vehicle weight of 1941 Ford pickup

Didn't 41 pickups have as an option a 4 cyl and maybe even a 6? If so, there could be weight differences.
