Default Defroster Vents for 1941 pickup. Source?

Looking for a pair of defrost vents for a 1941 Ford pickup. They are 4 inches from mounting hole-to-hole and have a 1 3/4" OD heater flexible tubing connector. They're larger and narrower at the vent than the ones supplied by the Early V8 Ford parts suppliers. I need 10 posts to access the Classifieds and this is my first. Thanks

Unable to reach you via PM/email via FordBarn due to my being new to site…too few posts to date. Have tried other means which will hopefully connect. Please consider the defroster vents sold. I just need the price and shipping costs. My ZIP is 45419 for calculating shipping. Thanks.

I would never pretend to know '41 stuff as well as perhaps I should. You bring forth a valid point worth researching.

The defrost nozzles I have attached photos of are for a hot water heater.

To get your post count up just start replying to posts with generic comments and you should have the magic number of posts in short order.

That's helpful additional information. I did read somewhere the pickup defroster vents had a curve in them. I'm going to try the pair Kube has available. The 4" attachment hole span is correct. Mercurycyclone, if they don't work, is the pair in the photo available for purchase?
51504bat. Good advice. My preference has been to make posts that contribute to a forum. The old axiom "if you don't have anything to say..." But this Forum's rules will change that for a while. Thanks.

Mercurycyclone has shown the correct parts. I bought the ones kube found and they do not clear the glove box in my 41 pickup. Tim

Pistonbroke, thank you. I have the ones from Kube coming, so I'll see what I can do. Back to Mercurycyclone, let me know if the pair of vents shown are available for purchase. Thanks to all...my post count is rising.

While we are on this topic, is it just a press-fit for the hose onto the nozzle?

I recently went through this and learned the differences the hard way. Was sold a set of the straight style vents and was told they were correct for my '46 pickup...they aren't. Using the straight vents will prevent the defrost tubing from being installed, due to interference from the top of the instrument cluster and glove box. There is simply no way to install the hose.

Fritz: I think the term you intend is a slip fit. A press fit conjures up using a hydraulic press which would certainly be destructive. LOL

Slip fit it is then. So it should rely only on the tension of the hose to keep it from falling off?
