Re: 1941 Ford trunk tool compartment

Originally they were dipped in a mixture of old paints and oils. The result was a dull blackish color.

Re: 1939 Ford standard condenser replacement

Pain in the booty...
If you have an authentic coil and condenser, you'll need to remove the right hand - top bolt that goes through the condenser ground strap, the distributor and timing gear cover...

Re: 5/16 by 24 t nuts

I got mine at the local ACE hardware store.

They sell door hinge bolts 5/16" x 24 as that's what they are.

Roy, (not RAY) was a very close and personal friend. I was fortunate to have spent a lot of time with the man.

Re: U-joint Play (again!)

There's a lot more that goes in to manufacturing a Belleville spring than the "cup". There are designed load specifications at specific heights of deflection, hardness ratings, etc.

Re: U-joint Play (again!)

The authentic washer was "cupped" as you state.
Prior to retirement, I made numerous dies that produced these Belleville's in about as many sizes and pressure as a guy could imagine.
That repop...

Re: U-joint Play (again!)

I am guessing most of you do not realize that isn't a washer.
It is a spring. It is a Belleville spring. In this application, it acts as a lock washer. The convex side goes directly beneath the...

Re: Quarter window seal

I have never installed a set of 1/4 seals in a fordor. I have however, attempted to install rear windshield seals (coupe) from Carpenter and they are way too big. Drake's fit perfectly.

Re: Rear panhard rod 39 merc

Good morning Clem. I am happy :) You?

Call it whatever you or others may so desire. Your Merc did not leave the factory with a rear "sway" bar.

Re: window glass in a 1940 ford coupe

I find it easier to R&R the glass from the bottom of the door. I've restored six, (seven?) coupes to date and have done each one that way.

Re: Rear panhard rod 39 merc

You don't see them on the rear very often as they were never installed at the factory.

Re: Air Cleaner Mystery!!

I've seen similar versions of this. Yep, after-market as some have suggested. These seemed to have become common place when our old Fords were starting to have some serious blow-by and were just...

Re: 39 Mercury trans cover/shifter seal?

Funny! I did restore a '39 Merc convertible a number of years ago. Why no more than that? I guess I have always adored the '39 - '40 Fords and they just kinda "happened" in regard to my exploits.

Re: 39 Mercury trans cover/shifter seal?

I can't claim any expertise with the Merc's. However, the Ford mats did not have a hole in them for the clip(s). I've had a number of authentic mats, even a couple of NOS (service parts). The...

Re: 39 Mercury trans cover/shifter seal?

There was no seal or gasket between the mat and the floor board. If there was something there in your car, someone added it.
Two clips held the mat in place - nothing else. One on each side of the...

Re: rear window replacement

Zeke, this is an easy one.
Cut the old rubber seal with a razor. That'll make it easier to remove the glass, etc.
Once you have the body surfaces cleaned up, it's time to install the new glass....
