Re: radial tires

Diamondback sells radials made by various Japanese manufacturers. They add whitewalls using their own process. I've had a set on my '40 for several years and have been quite happy with them.

Re: Phenolic Spacer

I drilled a hole in the 1" phenolic spacer under the Holley 4bbl in my '40 and screwed in a barb hose fitting to supply the Columbia.

Re: 1940 fender skirt attachment

Just a shot, but maybe a small c-clamp painted black?

My wife's not a stylist, but that's not stopped her from giving me a few haircuts over the years:(

Re: 1939 ford deluxe Starter Button Question

In my case, the Fahnestock Clip was not holding the wire tightly. I inserted a second, short piece of wire, and that firmed things up. A short nail would probably work too.

Re: Offset Hose Adapter

Lotsa SBC experience on the HAMB--maybe someone over there has tried that hose adapter.

Re: Powermaster alternator

Can't speak for the 8BA, but I used a 1" spacer to mount a Holley 390 on my '40 with a 221 cu. in.

Re: Powermaster alternator

I think they're mounted backwards to line up with the stock accelerator linkage.

Re: 39 accelerator pedal

I think the hinge pin is usually the culprit.

Re: 1940 hand grab

I believe Ford called them Passenger Assist Straps. They go on the passenger side (i.e., right side in US) and are easily swiveled to access the light switch.
