Re: 39 Brake Questions.

V8 Coupeman, I have been confused about one piece and 2 piece drums. I agree that 1937/1939 will interchange, but not sure the 2 piece is 1939 only. Looking at your pictures 2 and 4 both styles...

1939 Deluxe cars did not have amp meters they used a volt meter. I have had good results using a 1957 or newer instrument voltage limiter connected to the feed wire that supplies all 4 of your 6 volt...

Re: 46 Ford pickup door lock latch remote

Look closely at your pictures 2 & 3 you will see the "shadow" of the missing spring. You have the correct replacement part. Putting it in requires bending at least 2 of the tabs. Be careful not to...

Re: 1948 mercury belt line trim.

I would use one stud at the end of each piece and at both ends of the door. Your final choice may be determined by access from the back side so you can get to the nut. Without the studs door trims...

Re: Growling speedometer in 40 Ford

The cable will NOT come out the lower end at the turtle. it has a collar on the top end. Taking the 2 screws out at the head area will not help. If you need the speedometer head out, there are 5...

1939 Deluxe inner fender aprons 1940 interchange?

I am learning about changes in the early and late style front fenders used on 1939 Deluxe. Is the inner apron commonly found in 1940 correct for a late 1939?
