Re: Cast steel vs aluminum crab distributor

I usually see the cast iron ones in military surplus boxes. The bushing for the piston is nice.

Re: Condenser

The earlier condensers look to be much smaller in diameter (about 1/2" guess without measuring) with various mounting ways then yours. Probably too small to meet specs with good modern materials...

Re: Condenser

Tubman, I like your condensers, can you make ones that work with the 32-41 distributors that look stock? I have 1 concourse car where that would matter.
I do have a Harmon Collins distributor...

Re: Adventures in gas tank restoration. '36

The Terne plated metal has a thin coat of tin/lead like an alloy of solder. I think back in the day they plated it instead of dipping it because it saved material. Of course this will an impurity...

Re: Condenser

The problem with condensers is that the ones made today are nowhere near the quality of the ones like in 1987 when tubman got his 51. Some still seem to have some QC but the FA 49 you may have to...

Re: Paint & clear coat

I like the look of the single stage Urethane without a clear coat. To my eye, it looks more like original paint then the ultra shiny "plastic" look of the clear.
That said, to each his own, I...

Re: Lawson -- is this you?

I can't wait to get that "we have your grandkid in jail" phone call. I will tell them, "Good, keep him there, I always hated that little F****er!"

Re: Green gas

Never seen anything like that, and it's not even St Patrick's Day.
What kind (Brand) of sealer did you use?

Re: 1939 Ford flathead rattle

You can JB weld it back into the stand. Or find another stand that the hole is tight and the tube is intact.

Re: Confusion reigns - 32 and 38 steering wheel interchangeability

I have a 37 banjo in my 5w coupe, no issues. I suspect either your shaft or wheel is different due to coming from the UK. Maybe one is from a model Y?

Re: 41 Merc Push-Button starter replacment

There are 2 slots in the hole the switch goes in that lines it up so the "start" is at the top (or upside down if you put it in that way). I have always had good luck getting those out with a plastic...

Re: 1939 Ford flathead rattle

I had a loose muffler baffle vibrate at certain RPMs. Had to run it on a lift to find it.

Re: Lawson -- is this you?

Ha ha, definitely a scam! ( Or Lawson has turned into quite the practical joker!)
Hope his computer hasn't been hacked.

Re: 1939 Ford flathead rattle

The tube in the bottom of the fuel pump stand could have dropped out of the stand if it was too short.

Re: Question for Bubba

Since the points go to ground, whatever ground the car has is the side of the coil that goes to the distributor. That is how I remember.

Re: Blackstone fuel pump

The base is similar to (but not the same) as the early short 32 pump and might use a special short rod. Can't really tell about the rod from the pictures without seeing the bottom.

Re: 1940 Ford Std Mohair Seat Fabric

I am about to have the LB kit I luckily bought 3 years ago installed in my 40 V8 (std) coupe, and it came with broadcloth not mohair I think.

Re: STOLEN RODSTER north of Denver

Punishment should be for the thief to be put in a locked room with the owner (with a baseball bat) for 30 minutes. But of course, we can't do that.
So glad that the car got recovered, often these...

Re: 1940 ford pillar garnish mouldings to hold headliner

I am not seeing those in the 1940 Body parts list. Since they get covered with headliner material, I thought they would be either listed with headliner or windshield parts.
I think this is...
