Re: 40-41 Drums/Hubs with 46-48 Backing Plates

Always a worry when we get the "He was told". At least an "I was told" indicates that someone that in the chain of information can perhaps give a clarification. At least the amount of interference...

Re: Drum and axle compatibility

What am I saying? Drums '40 and beyond don't have the right offset for a stock '35 front. Sorry: Fred A

Re: Drum and axle compatibility

The Rear wheels should be easy depending. You don't mention the wheels you prefer to run. It makes a bit of difference but not much. If the car is otherwise original, then '35 wheels will work nicely...

Re: Flywheel housing

One of the questions that seldom comes up is the why of the cracks. I've had a long held theory and it is a flaw in the design where there is no support for the bottom half of the housing. This was...

Re: Are these Ford wheels

How do you know that they are Kelsey Hayes? There were other wheel makers such as Motor Wheel. The distinctive KH stamp inside the hoop will tell unless lost in rust. They may not even be Ford...

Re: 40 Ford car dash

The Deluxe is an early convert. I think Kube dates the early ash trays into January. Another clue on early is the grille sides. Good Luck: Fred A

Re: Winfield Carb Spray Tube

Looking to complete a Winfield size C throttle. Because of the different sizes, I need to know the length of the spray tube, part S10C to aid in my shopping. The price of complete style S and SR...

Re: Another reason the hobby is dying out

Sometimes you sleep through a trend until something wakes us up. The changes at MACs when they went Eckler was sobering and changed my buying habits. Here in California we are on track to be the tax...

Re: Bumper Grille Guard Rusty

Ding! Ding! Ding! That Evapo-Rust rang my bell as I have a tub full of it and it did little on my iron exhaust manifold. I also like the chrome or aluminum paint in the pits, light that they are....

Bumper Grille Guard Rusty

The grille guard is a bit rusty and looks bad next to the nice chrome bumper and guards. Reaching to find a patch that will make the rust less noticeable. Not averse to stripping the rust and...

Re: what about that small lip/shoulder on front of the flywheel for ring gear?

Is it really worth the work to use an early flywheel? The later flat flywheels were largely drilled for 10" clutches. Couldn't redrilling for another clutch be more accurate? 59 style flywheels are...

Re: 1932 Ford Transmission Cover Plate

That should be better for the '36 and beyond shift top. Thought you didn't take the suggestions seriously, but the market undoubtedly brought you around. Should sell well. Good Luck: Fred A

Re: Painting Over Evaporust?

With the Evapo-Rust the rust seems to keep coming and leaves a dark shiny coat that seems water soluble. I'm trying the pressure washer and quick heat. With all the aggressive wire brushing the...

Re: Oil pan cracks... fixable?

Are you sure they are cracks? Looks like the seam between the inside of the seal channel and the outer pan stamping. Give it a closer look. Doesn't look like a problem. I recently used a one piece...

Re: 59A Oil Filter For '40 Car, Interference?

The 59A engine with no filter was in the '40 car as it came. It had three 97s, an Isky full cam, Weiand heads, and a Harman Collins dual coil. All wrong for my car. I had commented on this site of...

Re: Valve lash for 59A style camshaft

Only catch may be if the valves have later rotators which makes it a bit difficult for V8 barners to answer, at least where I have asked before. Still would appreciate an answer to such a question,...
