Re: Pressure Switch Question

From what you are describing, yes, the "new" switch is poopy. Not a big surprise. I'd suggest you seek a NOS switch. They last for years upon years.

Re: Need H10 coke bottle plugs. Got ANY

Tom, H9's have little value, maybe $100 for that set. H9's are not rare at all. Sorry for the bad news.

Re: Need H10 coke bottle plugs. Got ANY

I actually had pursued that very thing many years ago. Champion was more than willing and able to accurately reproduce the plugs for me. Cost (around 1990 or so) was $3 each. Minimum quantity was...

Re: The 1934 Brewster - Built On A Ford Chassis - Marketed By Rolls Royce

For history's sake, it's neat that it had survived. Still, in any of its itineration's, it's just plain ugly.

Re: Need H10 coke bottle plugs. Got ANY

Until the rules are changed, I'll judge according to them.
When they are changed to a point that non-authentic / non-correct is accepted at the same level as authentic / correct, I'll stop judging....

Re: Need H10 coke bottle plugs. Got ANY

$150? A full set? New? TWO rib or five? If they are five rib, they are worth about $30. If they are two, I'll take em :)

Re: Need H10 coke bottle plugs. Got ANY

$300 for a set of correct plugs? Is it 1980? Think more like $750.

You deciding to not show at that "high level" is understandable. You most likely have a healthier attitude towards these old...

Re: Need H10 coke bottle plugs. Got ANY

On the concourse, the rules are very clear. The cars are to be restored to a condition "as they left the factory".
That's the "game".

Re: Need H10 coke bottle plugs. Got ANY

Here's a photo of the correct plugs.

During my research, I was unable to determine whether or not FORD (block lettered) plugs were factory installed or were later service parts. There are lots of...

Re: Need H10 coke bottle plugs. Got ANY

They (judges) should be deducting one point for every incorrect plug.

Re: "Strainer", '40 Coupe Body part?

Jim, I'd restored a number of '39 Fords and found both designs. So, it wasn't a cost savings type of change. I'm not certain if it was a change at all. But rather, perhaps simply a different way of...

Re: "Strainer", '40 Coupe Body part?

Jim, Your's are correct in every way. During my research, I could not find a "pattern" as to why some cars were built like yours and others like mine.

Re: "Strainer", '40 Coupe Body part?

Fred, Carpenter sells these within a kit. They are not sold separately but still, the cost is reasonable. They are VERY nice.
During nearly each of my restorations, I find these to be so beat up,...

Re: Flathead Spark plug Thread Repair

I'd used these albeit on rare occasion as a tool maker. Installed properly, they are STRONG. A MUCH better alternative than a Heli-coil. Heli-coils were NEVER used.
Me? Working on an aluminum head?...

Re: All-weather car cover suggestions

I'd like to offer my .02 here... while storing your car outdoors is problematic in itself, covering it can easily compound the inherent issues.
Trapping moisture beneath the cover is far worse than...

Re: Installing windshield glass 46 ford

I agree with Alan... two people make the task much easier. I use glass cleaner (spray) as it won't bubble up when it gets wet later on.
Make sure you end at a corner of the glass with the nylon...
