Re: '39 Deluxe hinge boss repair (stripped threads)

A 5/16 fine T-nut, another suggested repair, has the same OD as the boss. I guess over size drill/tap might work.

Re: '39 Deluxe hinge boss repair (stripped threads)

Do you think there is enough wall thickness for a helicoil? The boss OD is 0.375". The helicoil requires a 0.266 drill the there are the threads to be cut. I don't know the OD of the insert. Probably...

'39 Deluxe hinge boss repair (stripped threads)

Another newbie question. The bosses where the hinge attaches to the hood are stripped. T-nuts were suggested as a repair. A couple of questions if you have done this.

How did you remove the...

Re: 1939 Ford hood brace removal

The cross brace is a little different too. The early hood had a smooth arc from to top to the side, pic 1. The later brace had a bend outward toward the hood side, pic 2, at the body line.

It does...

Re: 1939 Ford hood brace removal

I know the hood latches are different. The early latch is 2 rods that grab on to tabs at the edge of the grill. Apparently it didn't work well so Ford introduced the '40 style mid year. You can sort...

Re: 1939 Ford hood brace removal

I am confused, not unusual. I think my problem with my hinge plates lies in a Ford mid year change. I have seen pics of late '39 and '40 hoods where the hinge plates are flat up against the hood...

Re: 1939 Ford Cross Brace/Hinge Mounts

I tried to DELETE but I couldn't find delete option. The hinge plate is above body line so the bend is not involved.

Re: 1939 Ford hood brace removal

I hadn't thought of just taking out the hinge plates not sure why. I'll have to look at this more. I guess I figured if the hinge plates were bent the cross brace was too. Something to look at...

Re: 1939 Ford hood brace removal

I hate to be a bother but do you have a preferred place to cut the cross brace? The flattest place right about where it touches the hood or somewhere in those stiffening undulations?

1, 2 or 3 in...

Re: 1939 Ford Deluxe hood hinge mounts

Very much so. I was going to ask if the mounts should be flat against the hood. Mine and the ones in a hood I was looking at are not flat against the hood. Buying that other hood would not have...

Re: 1939 Ford Deluxe hood hinge mounts

That is the plan going forward thanks. The T nuts I found are smaller OD than the mounting hole in the hinge. I found some 1/2 OD tubing I guess just make a boshing. There will be a little slop...

Re: Parking brake

Macs has them probably others. A well stocked local hardware probably hS something that would work with some creative bending. Easier if you have some of the old spring to match though

Re: '39 - '40 hood comparison

Thanks that is what I thought. Even with the ,39 there is an early and late latch mechanism. They look a lot alike but with subtle differences.

I looked up the hinges they are the same for '39 and...

Can a '40 Standard hood be used on a '39 DeLuxe? Any differences in trim or mounting. I think the latches are different.

The hinge mounts on mine are bent and I'm not having success straightening...
