Default V-8 Hardware and Fasteners

Where can we get Early V-8 hardware and fasteners now that Roy N. is gone?

RIP Roy.

I need the hardware that holds the tail light stands to the rear fenders for 1937 Ford (L&R). The hardware that is on my car appears to be original (crudded over and rusted) and I have no confidence that the fasteners can be removed with out breaking them or damaging them.

Drakes used to carry them but now they don't. Joe's and Mac's don't have them either.

Any help appreciated. Thanks. TonyM

Good question. Perhaps Michael Driskell will be able to respond when he's back from vacation.

Isn't there an "Old Ford" store somewhere in California?


Can anybody help with that?

Thanks.

There's two stores in California that have a lot of NOS parts, 1) The early ford Store in San Dimas, California and 2) All Ford Parts in Campbell, California

I wondered about this as the Early Ford books I have only have finishes and the Parts green book list all fasteners as s1 finish. So, I looked up the founding date of the SAE which is one thread spec and I found 1905 and one of the founding vice presidents was Henry Ford. USS which is another thread spec can be found similarly as coarse instead of fine. ASTM bolts and nuts are for structural not automotive. Grade 2, Grade 5, Grade 8 those are the strengths I know. I did once consider buying a dune buggy kit until I saw it had kitchen hardware with square nuts.

Seth is totally correct. It's only thanks to Third Gen Automotive/Michael/1935fordtn (ebay), that my '35 is even close to a working machine. Buy with confidence, and often. Clutch clevis, special brake shaft pins, starter switch, wiring of every sort, it's impossible to add up the essentials!

But I find a way to recycle every piece possible on my car. Rusty stuff gets treatment, both before removal and before putting it back.

I despise the Phillips screws and hash marked bolts previous owner installed on my '35 Touring.
