Re: turn signals for a 40 deluxe

If 12V I might be able to help with one small aspect of it.

Re: Open 1951 trunk without a key?

Before I would try disassembling, I would round up all the other keys I could find and try any that would actually go in. Sometimes, with a lot of wiggling, you might get lucky and it will open. This...

Re: Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

I don't like those indicators in the headlamps. I don't think the contrast between the indicator and the headlamp is great enough . Probably ok in daylight but probably not good enough when the...

Re: Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

Never heard any mention of it here, but who knows? It may exist as a regulation but I never heard of it. I can see the sense in it, but never heard of it.

Re: Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

Yes, more or less, the parking light feed must be routed to the new parking light in the headlamp unit. The flasher in the old park light location gets a new feed assuming flashers were not fitted...

Re: Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

Here I'm running those bulbs on the front, and all red lamps on the back, but with separate bulbs for brakes and indicator. So no fancy relays or switches.

It sounds like your lighting regs are a...

Re: Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

It's just a separate bulb in the headlamp unit. The older sealed beam units have a clear window for the pilot light to shine through.

Mart's Sparks: A turn signal tip from Mart's Garage. Easier than I thought!

When I was setting up the lights on the 41 pickup I discovered a type of bulb I hadn't even seen before. They are ideal for converting an existing park light to turn signals. You never know, this...

Re: Would You Use it?

You ideally want the part of the gasket with the metal folded over sealing area making contact with metal on both deck face and head face. If the folded over metal part is overlapping a hole you are...

Re: ***Need help on BRAKES - 53 Merc Monterey***

If you look at your picture, the hose at the chassis bracket is slightly rearward pointing.

I think if you undo the fitting at the hose, re-seat the hose in the frame bracket, make sure it is...

A fun quickie. The truck's running, but I don't believe it.

Just a fun quickie from Mart's garage. I started the pickup up to check the radiator for leaks. I noticed something I did not expect. It was running, but I'm surprised it even started! It's...

Re: Removing Engine from '40 Ford Question

I've taken a 59A style motor from my 40 coupe without removing anything except the radiator. Mine was a deluxe model. I did take out the trans cover. If you undo the hood supports the hood will open...

Re: Progressive vs. straight pull on dual Weiand intake

Personally, with duals, nothing wrong with straight pull.

Trying to run progressive can lead to a world of hurt.

Re: crab distributor on a 38 24 stud

If you've already swapped on a 2 bolt cover you need this spacer instead.

Re: 1 Fly wheel 2 PP thread bad

I don't. Why would you? Just use the stock spring washers and torque to the correct value. You (or someone else) will want to undo them some time in the future.

Re: Is this oilpan protector original or not ?

I would assume it was part of the snowmobile conversion. Which would make sense, as in effect it was an off road application. The people doing the conversion parts would have some manufacturing...

Re: Radiator.... Mac's What say you?

I'd have a go at repairing it myself first. Soldering a rad isn't hard. I've repaired my 33 rad and am currently doing my 40 rad. Does it need recoring, or just some localised repairs?

Oh yeah,...

Re: Bucking like a horse

Sorry to hear about your wife. Condolences.

Re the bucking: It could be lots of things. Carb, ignition, bad fuel.

Tell us what you have done to it since it last ran well.
