Re: Let me ask another way

My guess is the LED tail light bulbs are for 6V negative ground. I bought some last year for my 32 pickup and they would work with negative ground and not positive. There was a lengthy thread going...

Re: 40 Ford Replacement Panel

I wouldn't be surprised if the Drake , Carpenter , and United Pacific all come from the same factory in China. My understanding is the factory contract's have been requiring larger than demand...

Re: 32 Roadster pick up

I saw the bead too, but the north American door striker eliminates the Australian built possibility

Re: Transport available!! to Washington state from Central or northern California

I'll bump it for Mike. He's a good guy and can be trusted to haul for you if anyone has concern about that.

Re: 32 Roadster pick up

It does appear to have a US style door latch striker rather than an Australian style on the B pillars.

Re: rebuilding a pre-36 steering box - parts interchangeability

The sector shafts should be the same size from 32-36. I had my early box machined to accept the 36 bearings and seals and didn't have to touch the sector shaft, granted my car is LHD.

1932 V-8 early engine steady rod brackets

I have a 32 B Pickup with a 36 V8 in it. The center crossmember looks to be an early version. It only has the outer 4 cylinder rod mounting holes and nothing for a 8 cylinder. It also doesnít have...

I thought Corkey sold out a few years back and no longer owns Coker Tire ? I think he still owns Honest Charley Speed Shop though. Nice surprise in the mail box and it’s great to hear a positive...

One of the for the suspensions narrow track width is after lowering the front, it helps to prevent the tires from hitting the fenders when turning

Re: Rotor too big for distributor shaft on Ford 8ba flathead v8

It definitely is too big without the clip. The clip is required for the rotor to fit properly without wobbling all over

Re: Rotor too big for distributor shaft on Ford 8ba flathead v8

You can get a rotor at NAPA # FA-67 and I believe the clip might even be the same on a 65 Mustang or Falcon 6 cylinder and possibly Ford 8-N and 9-N tractors if you have a Mustang or farm/tractor...

Re: 35 rumble lid

Also , the lid only fits the opening one way , it is not reversible. The handle opening will have to be cut out and moved too.
