Yup, and Henry and the boys (mostly the boys) IMPROVED the immediate efficiency by going hydraulic the next year, didn't they! Longevity-wise...the cables never leak or get nasty and rusty inside...

Re: '40 rear brake question: How snug should the drums be on the shoes?

You say you're just grabbing that rear drum and turning. Is it difficult to turn, or just dragging? I've always set-up shoe brakes with SOME drag, yet NO real difficulty in turning. ALMOST sounds...

Re: 40 Ford Brakes

Possibly, but probably not anywhere near as much as you might think (if much at all), especially if ALL tires are properly inflated. If properly inflated, the weight of the car is only going to...

Re: paint on oil pan?

Without going back and looking it up, I believe you're actually correct. I believe the Duntovs were peddling the Arduns in the LATE '40s, and of course, the first PRODUCTION hemi was...

Re: paint on oil pan?

They both came-about in the same relative time frame. As far as 'looks-wise'......I'm sorry, but the Ardun just makes the Mopar Hemis look like an afterthought, and I love the look of a Hemi! But...
