Re: "Heavy" frame? Please educate me

I don't know about 1938 Ford Woodie frames, but the 1946 Ford Station Wagon was fitted to a regular passenger car chassis. There are production line pictures showing Station Wagons, Coupes and Sedans...

Re: Pat McFarlane RIP

My condolences to the McFarlane family. We were out to dinner one night and Pat told us when he was a young man he built a SUBMARINE! I hope someone in his family reads this post and can add to it....

Tex, is it possible to move your radiator forward. I know some of the Tri-Five guy's are able move their radiators in front of the radiator support without major modifications. Sorry 4t8, didn't mean...

Re: Lathe with 3 Ford transmissions in Iowa

If my old shop teacher saw that third picture in the original post, someone would be getting detention. If he ever saw an unattended chuck wrench in the chuck like that, he would blow a gasket. He...

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe options

To add to what Seth points out, the conversion might be a challenge for some. It has a torque tube which will need to be removed before taking out the transmission. That in itself is an issue, as...

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe options

The V-8 Ford Club of America offers a 1941-1948 Ford Book, that has just about any fact for your car that you can want. I recommend purchasing it.

Re: 42 clock

Steve, sometimes it's the way the clock is mounted. I had a clock that wouldn't run with the three screws holding it in. When I removed one of the screws, it worked fine. It could be a tweaked...

Re: 40 Ford Convertible Windshield Installation

If you log onto the Van Pelt Sales website, they have a complete description, with illustrations on how the windshield is installed. Go to "parts drawings" and then to "Body Pictures".

Re: 42 clock

That's a good sign. If you can get to the clockworks and you have clock oil, use the needle tip applicator to get to the bearings. Don't over do it and I would bet that over time it will work. I just...

Re: 42 clock

1941 and '42 Super DeLuxe Fords were equipped with stem wound clocks. In 1946 the electric clock was an accessory. If you are trying to lubricate your clock you must use "clock oil" and not something...

Re: '32 woody color

David, do you think that perhaps the early bodies were built by Murray, until they turned over production of the '32 Station Wagon body to Baker-Rulang?

Re: '32 woody color

I wonder if the fact that Baker-Rulang and not Ford, built the bodies, might have something to do with it? According to the Book Famous Ford Woodies, by Lorin Sorenson the early 1932 Ford wagons were...

Re: Women buy shoes: Guys buy toys[old Fords]

Re: removing spare tire indention on 40 pu fender

I'm not a body man by any account, but because the dimple is concaved into the fender you simply can't "pound it out". The more you pound it out, it will tend to grow larger and stretch the fender...

Re: '32 Ford woody

As Davis suggests, probably the easiest way to go would be the reproduction fenders from United Pacific and a good metal man to modify them. With a production run of 1032 four cylinder cars and only...

Re: hammer size

One think to remember is that there is no "from the factory" depth. I have seen stamped numbers that were very deep and easily readable to numbers that were almost unreadable. I guess if the guy...

Re: Painting polished stainless steel

Even with self etch primer the paint will eventually peel. As deuce mentions bead blasting is probably the easiest to get complete coverage for the primer to bond to.

Re: '32 standard roadster project - some further progress

It's refreshing to see a standard roadster. It seems like every '32 that came from the factory had dual side mounts. Just like the Model A roadsters when they were popular, everyone had dual side...
