Re: Radial tires for early Ford

Nearly everyone says that. But I have to say I didn't feel that much difference, in the ride or the handling. Maybe I'm just not as sensitive to those things as other drivers.

Re: 1939 Deluxe 2DR Sedan

When I first got my car, I immediately started researching how to add overdrive to keep up with modern traffic. Then I read a post from Kube that changed my thinking. Kube's post said something like...

Re: Radial tires for early Ford

I was worried about that too. How clean are my original wheel rims? The DiamondBack's sales guy said that can be a problem, suggested using their "radial tubes". Only $10 per tube at that time, so...

Re: who has (or is interested in) F-1 panel trucks?

Me thinks old panel trucks are really cool. We see pickups at every car show, but how often do we get to see a panel truck? Feel the same about COEs. Really cool pieces of Americana history.

Re: 41 ford car stock gas tank sending unit - recommendation

Yes. In series. Put it right ahead of the sender; easier access than working on the back of instrument panel.

Re: 41 ford car stock gas tank sending unit - recommendation

I found by trial and error that the replacement sender in my car needed a 7 ohm resistor (not 70 ohm!) to get the gauge to read accurately at empty.

And then it is only accurate near empty, not...

Re: Holley 94 accelerator pump tuning

I would think tweaking down to this degree would be different for each car. Kinda like how much choke to use on start-up. Each engine/carb is a little different. Just have to get to know what your...

Re: Motor Mount Replacements for 40

When I did this a few years ago, I was told there is no given torque spec for this bolt. I was told to get it good and tight so engine cannot lift off the rubber when working. But not so tight that...

Re: '40 Body Underside Color?

That info comes from the old 1940 Ford book. Not sure why they list three options. I think the authors at that time were just stating what was acceptable for V8 Club judging. But maybe there were...

Re: Current Leak?

The ohmmeter is not measuring a current leak. It is measuring the resistance (conductivity) from one meter probe to the other. I would think your ohmmeter should have measured zero resistance....

Re: Walt Dupont

I'm new, so don't know anything about Walt DuPont. I sit at the feet of all the experts on here, learning what I can. Sad day when we hear of one of the experts passing.

Re: Winters Performance Price Increase

Most of the time, governments can do little to influence world economic factors, although they always get the blame. We are coming, too quickly, out of a world wide shut down. Pent-up demand...

Re: Oil filter oil line

That oil filter return line is on the to-do list for my ‘40. Third Generation Automotive in Tenn. told me they can supply both the hose and the banjo bolt fitting.

Why do you want to lower this car? With the appearance of the car as it now is, lowered suspension may just look like its riding on old tired springs. Why not just drive it,...

Re: Compression results

On my engine that had been in long storage, adding MMM to the oil did not help the sticky valve problem. But adding MMM to the gas eliminated the problem immediately.

Don’t both engines have a three bolt timing cover? Isn’t the crab distributor two bolt?
