Re: Paul Bradley Response

Yes, but as I recall, Wally showed up, took pity on the Griswolds, and let them in the park. So, maybe there's hope after all;)

Re: Shifting A Columbia In A '40

Don't think it hurts anything, but it's harder on the clutch and slows acceleration. I've done it a few times myself when it wasn't possible to back up (e.g., at a stop sign with a car right behind...

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.

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

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: 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.
