Re: problem with 1934 air cleaner

If it is an original air cleaner as you'd stated, well, no such thing as a 60HP in '34. That answers your question definitively.

Re: 36 PU-After market muffler?

Rick, If you have the old muffler, take it to NAPA. Ask for a counter person that can think beyond a computer screen. There are books there that depict every muffler they sell. Each has every...

Re: 1938 Hood bolt Installation

Be 100% certain the bolts you'd received are not too long. Many of the repop hood bolts kits are incorrect and as such, will dimple the sheet metal.

Re: 1940 Parts, Reference Resources

Welcome!
I like the idea of going with the flathead. Done with patience (read: correctly) they are a very reliable power source. Plus, much more interesting than a SBC.
Parts, good quality...

Re: 'Rebuilders'? Am I tooo Picky?

Heck, more often than not, these judgements are worthless within state lines.

Re: F1 6 volt electric question

Just to be clear... all lamps work properly during the day?

When you say NO brake or turn, that includes the front lamps as well?

Did they all work, all the time, in the past?

Re: F1 6 volt electric question

Andy, do any of the four corners blink? Do your brake lamps light?
A new flasher is cheap and easy to replace. That may prove to be a quick way to ether fix the issue or eliminate that part of the...

Re: 1940 standard running boards to truck

There's a way to modify anything to fit anything. The real question worth considering "Is it worth the effort?"

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

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.
