Re: 40 ford brakes

Re: 17 tooth speedometer gear in a 1940

So I guess a 17 housing is like hens teeth? Should I round up a more common 18 housing and gear and be done with it?

Re: 17 tooth speedometer gear in a 1940

17 tooth speedometer gear in a 1940

I bought a 17 tooth model A gear from Brattons. Car is running, but it looks like the mesh is not correct with my 40 worm gear on the driveshaft. It spins intermittently like its skipping teeth.

I'm rebuilding the column drop for my 40, and it had already been partially disassembled, so I'm not sure what it needs.

Re: Drake HR-18000-K...

I'm looking to get this for my 40 Sedan. Just a couple of questions: was the rear lowered more than 3"? Does taking the tank out make installation easier?
