Re: proper coil for 47ford std. engine

Your stock coil should look like this. Used with external resistor.
This requires a special mounting bracket as well.

Re: Antique Insurance a little off Topic

Called Hagarty, and asked about my 35 project, they will insure it for agreed upon amount.
Not running yet, as is. And I can update as I go. Reasonable price too.
I think that’s pretty good.

Re: 1946/47 pick up

That’s a beauty!
I love the look of stainless grille strips instead of the factory painted ones.

Re: Oh no! Not another thermostat thread! Or my solution

I don’t think I’ve seen these available through vendors. I’m curious, who sells them?
I do like the fact that since I’m making them I can custom fit them to each side of the engine.
Because of the...

Oh no! Not another thermostat thread! Or my solution

Got tired of fighting with thermostats, tiny little wires that always come loose , extra clamps that look out of place, so this is what I came up with.
Got a foot of the stainless tubing from...

Re: '35 Front Fender brace -- thru inner panel?

The brace on my 35 is a one piece. But this is a December 34 car, so very early design.

Re: My junkyard find

I’m going to make some of those jack stands myself. But I really want to make one of these.

Re: 1947 Ford Super Deluxe options

Yes, you need to swap the transmission out for a side shift, and you’ll need the linkage if it’s not there. The rear transmission mounts might be a little different. It should be a U-shaped mount...

Yours is definitely a conversion. I’ve got The opposite, a column shift in my 35 coupe.

Re: Split rim, wide 5?

That’s an odd one all right, I’ve never seen one. But I would assume as you did that it was for a big truck use.
