Re: Identify Brakes

The answer is in the Green Book. '39-'42 has the lower adjusters, '46-'48 no lower adjusters.
Look it up. Page 26 in the chassis parts manual.

Re: 1949 -50 Mercury overdrive trans case interchangeability

I did the opposite, putting the Lincoln OD unit on a 50 Mercury case. This will raise the solenoid closer to the floor.
Anyway, all of the holes don't line up. Use a Mercury gasket against the case...

Re: 49 master cylinder

For the all knowing, go to Google or Eckler's site & look at '68 - '72 Corvette master cylinder.
I can't get it transferred.

Re: 49 master cylinder

It looks like a universal after market copy of a late 60's Corvette cylinder.
They are available in several bore sizes, so if replacing, check or match the bore.

Re: 40 Standard Grille

I recently purchased a NOS '40 std grille, all black . I figured it was a service part.
Drake is advertising all chrome std grilles on his web site at this time. Maybe the last run.

Re: Anto Sway Bar, Rear Shocks on 1939 Deluxe Vert

My experience with a '40 coupe equipped with a Drake rear bar & a Chassis Engineering front bar told me there was no difference in handling if only the rear bar was installed. Testing involved...

Re: Anto Sway Bar, Rear Shocks on 1939 Deluxe Vert

The Drake rear sway bar, shock kit is the single best modification you can make on an early Ford.
That's my opinion, and I'm sticking with it.
The tailpipe(s) will need to be modified.

Re: 39 coupe curling rear window seal

Your existing seals are probably Carpenter brand seals. As built they are too long & curl after installation.
Buy Drake seals, they will fit correctly.

Re: Shocked by the Horn!!!!

The horn button ground "path" is not clean. Your body is completing the ground circuit.
Maybe add a ground wire from the column to the frame.
Also clean the steering wheel under the horn button.

Re: 40 Standard Grille Repair

Real '40 Ford standard grilles are die cast.
Once upon a time the aftermarket produced a stamped steel grille.
