Re: dimmer switch 40-41

If you mean the head light dimmer switch this one looks promising as it was made back in the day as a replacement....

Re: 1939 1940 1941 firewall wiring kidney shaped cover

What "Kube" says above makes lots of financial sense. Imagine the extra cost of having to pre-paint the covers to match the body color.

Re: The space in the double wall on the chassis

I apply OSPHO. Let it dry for a few days, then apply paint in a spray bottle.
Wipe off drips and runs. Then paint frame.

Or, apply OSPHO, then Rustoleum black paint, then frame paint.

Re: No Oil Pressure While Cranking

I wouldn't be surprised if you don't get a pressure reading until engine fires up.

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

Mike: To be safe you might want to do all 4 wheels and the master cylinder. They probably all have "build up" of crud.

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

One more thought. Even if you have to buy new wheel cylinder, save the old ones as at some point down the road you can get it re-sleeved. I this White post restorations used to do it. Maybe they...

Re: 1940 Front Wheel Cylinders

First, look and see if interior of wheel cylinder is pitted. If it is, probably time for a new one. Hone using brake fluid as the lubricant and you might be able to save it. Check the plunger also...

Re: F1 Brake return springs

Here's what the 49-51 merc front brake shoes look like. I am not sure but I bet they are the same as the F100 11x2 brakes as the Merc rear was used in pickups also. Are you sure you have the...

Re: 39 ford

Don't over grease the torque tube center bearing. 1 to 2 pull of the trigger will work. The OEM bearing looks like this. Grease fitting is in line with the opening in the rubber casing.

Re: 39 ford

I think 39 and 40 are the same.

I have been told; Don't grease the fittings on the rear end bells that lube the wheel bearings as the grease will get on your brakes.

Could you also heat it up with a propane torch and then quench the seat?

Re: '40 Ford visors

If you decide to work on it to make it flip easier, I suggest unscrewing the entire visor and gently work with it on a nice clean cloth on your work bench. Then reinstall. I haven't flipped mine...

Re: Anyone use these drill/tap all in one?

Just imagine when one of those dual purpose taps breaks off in the hole. Good luck.
Follow Lawson's advise.
Plus, when using a hand tap you can "feel" the cut and ease up as needed.

Re: NGK Plugs

I use the NGK GR4 2635 plugs recommended by Mark Kirby when I bought his heads in 1999.

Work fine.

Re: Water pump repair

Like "Kube" said. If you don't have a press you will probably break a pulley. Send them to Skip and you will be much happier. They come back with improved impellers plus gaskets ready to install.
