What About A Vice?

A nice bench vice is the busiest tool in my shop. I have a wood vice at the big door, a multi axis vice at the bench, and a big Wilton. As a kid, a sears starter tool box, a bench grinder with a...

Re: Zephyr/Bendix Backing Plate Wear?

Tommy at Valley friction on Sherman Way looked at the wear and said to file the groove slightly. He also had some fresh small parts that completed the set. The usual counter man barely knows that...

Looking for widely available muffler and tailpipe replacement for a single exhaust. Any easy fit ideas? I'm concerned that the shipping from the east could be excessive. Thanks: Fred A

Zephyr/Bendix Backing Plate Wear?

Just back from the blaster, the backing plate vs shoe wear may need some attention. Can I just dust off the ridge and go? I've used these brakes on early Fords for many years and never had any issue...

Re: '40 Deluxe Radiator Vents?

I went out to look to see if any part of the welting remained. Not! Other than dirtly and the starboard side a bit faded from excess sun on the south side of a carport. It all was removed years ago...

Re: '40 Deluxe Radiator Vents?

Reasons For Doubt?

Looking at the dates on 19Fordy's link, I've decided to do a bit of cross checking. Do I even need early vents? Some of these cars are not what they seem. My indications are: The glass date, 11/39;...

Re: EAB valve lash

Seems to be more than a bit of confusion where the later versions also introduced valve rotators. I thought I was above all that until the inspection of the 59A in my '40 revealed an unexpected mix. ...

Re: Switching cam gear cover from 2-bolt to 3-bolt

Re: 40-41 Drums/Hubs with 46-48 Backing Plates

Re: Drum and axle compatibility

The Rear wheels should be easy depending. You don't mention the wheels you prefer to run. It makes a bit of difference but not much. If the car is otherwise original, then '35 wheels will work nicely...
