Re: 1939 Ford tudor Temp gauage

The centrifugal force method should not be done with the unit unsupported. If attached solidly to a long pole, it can be spun round with no stress applied to the copper tube. I did this, which did...

Re: 1939 Ford tudor Temp gauage

1939 has a mechanical temp gauge, no electrics in this one. It consists of a bulb in the head, a visible glass tube in the dash, and a small tube connecting the two, all filled with a heat sensitive...

Re: KR Wilson spring spreader continued, sort of

Lawson, Your spreader and jackstands are all good, it's just determining the point of relaxing the tension being applied to the shackles. This can be easy if both shackles are in relatively similar...

Re: New 94 Carb Holley 94

So, again my question. The new carbs are not made in USA, nor Ford, nor Holley, and not correct for the Concourse. With all the excellent original carbs available, why a new wannabe?

Re: New 94 Carb Holley 94

Why does everyone want a new foreign made 94 when so many originals are still out there?

Re: possibly changing from woven brake linning

Tom, Those that advise woven may have done so thinking about the earlier model Fords. The fact is that Ford did start out with woven shoes early in the 1937 production year, but soon changed over to...

Re: Spring shackle bushings

Lawson, Speedway has them. I used them on my ‘38, easy install and will last forever.

Re: looking at a restored 36 ford coupe

I've had my wife for 55 years now. She totalled my '57 Dodge so I figured I'd have to marry her to get my moneys worth.

How much do you figure she's worth at todays prices? :confused:

Re: Correct speedometer cable length ?

Cable length is critical only in relation to the sheath it runs in. Too short obviously wouldn’t engage, but also, just 1/8” too long within the sheath will bind and kink up. Ask me how I know.

Re: 6 volt adjustable voltage regulator?

I bought one many years ago. It has always worked very well as a cute wall hanger.

Re: Quick Rope Seal Question

The "no trim" instruction would apply, but not to the absurd. I got a rope that had to be trimmed by more than an inch. Can't tell you about an 8BA, that modern stuff is all Greek to me.

Re: Parts Unknown

I doubt the wrench is a lug wrench due to the short handle. The condenser and the switch are both aftermarket items, and are clearly identified on the boxes.

Re: Driveline assyembly sequence

Re: Ford Script Battery

It would be cleaner, for sure! Gutting an old case is a dirty job, but not difficult at all.

Re: Ford Script Battery

Jay, next time, use a small rubber hobby roller: Perfect results, and may well have been the factory method anyway.

Re: Ford Script Battery

Your original battery would have been a 2HF, which does accept the taller Optima battery as supplied these days. Just buy the battery and reuse your Ford Script case.

Re: 1939 Ford sedan horn/light switch..?

They are usually caked with oil/dirt on the outside. The inside should remain clean.
