Re: Never seen this before

They were front wheel drive using a two speed transaxle, and that’s why there were no water pumps in the heads, the heads are turned around and the pumps could not be belt driven. The cast aluminum...

Re: Never seen this before

There was one larger water pump driven off the camshaft, with a magneto mounted on the inside of the firewall which was typical of a Miller car. A cable drive off the crank nose turned the mag.

Re: Never seen this before

The carburetors were Strombergs with some Harry Miller influence, they used 4 bolt bases with one large throttle plate. I believe Ted Horn was the first to switch to the manifold shown with the two...

Re: Front Disc Brakes

There are no brackets for the early spindles that I'm aware of, they are made for the larger '37-'48 bolt pattern.

Re: McCulloch supercharger

Not to take anything away from the efforts put forth on the above CD, but the VS57 is a completely different style of blower. The best information I have run across will be found in the August and...

Re: Spindle bushing

Re: The holy grail of hot rods...

I’ll take the black one, less is more. The red car has too much gingerbread for my taste and even worse there are mixed themes in the build. Is it a roadster for cruising or does it want to be a race...

Re: Spindle bushing

Oilite is porous and that allows it to be self lubricating. The part is pressed from metal powder and sintered (fired) in a high temperature furnace for a set time producing near net size. In the...

Re: Anyone ever seen this style 40 Ford Grille

Look at the seller’s other listings and the mention on each and every one- “Or Best Offer”. With almost 11,000 feedbacks clearly the seller knows what he’s doing. Yes, he lists high but that is a...

Re: 1932 Question - Doors

The 1928-1938 Hardware and Trimming Supplies book is the one that I referenced regarding the door lock assembly, but it was not helpful in showing window regulators for coupe doors. Printed in 1938...

Re: 1932 Question - Doors

The door lock and remote control assembly as well as the window regulator from the B160 door will work on your B45.
The garnish mouldings are different and do not interchange.

Re: Can someone identify this car

It is a 1930, the two piece face bar was used until that year. 1931 and later Pontiacs went to a one piece face bar.

Re: identify this panel delivery

For me the quickest identifier is the rounded corner of the reveal as compared to the squared corner on the ‘33 and ‘34 Panel Deliveries.

Bracket ID

A question was posed on the HAMB regarding these parts that appear to be bumper brackets, my WAG is they may be for the rear bumper on a 1936 Standard Panel Delivery. Can anyone positively ID them ?...

Re: USPS damage in shipping

Kube gets it, it is mostly about how things are packaged. If it rattles in the carton it’s not good enough. Something heavy would need plywood, at the very least, inside a carton so it can’t burst...

Re: 1933 ford Victoria

Compare the photos to see the difference. The early ‘33 fenders have the appearance of the Model A or ‘32 fenders, they have a more open look.

Re: Is Jim Gordon's Early Ford Parts in Rosemead, CA still open?
