White paint inside the housing. I also found 1156 6v LED light bulbs on superbrightleds.com and they really are super bright. They fit inside the tail lights on my pickup, but it looks like on their...

Re: 1939 1940 1941 firewall wiring kidney shaped cover

The center one looks more like the one on my 41 1/2 ton pickup. Although mine is smooth on the top and does not have that indent by the top wire opening.

Re: Empty Firewall Bolt?

Re: 1940 fan shroud

No original shroud. But I fitted a walker plastic shroud to my 41 pickup. You have to measure and cut the hole, but it works well. I found a few threads on here about others who did the same.

Re: 34,000 mile 1946 Ford Truck for upcoming TV episode

The speedo face plate is 1940 pickup. And the water temp gauge with that green bar I’ve only seen on 46-47 Mercury trucks. I agree on the horn. The pickup horn should mount on the left frame rail and...

Re: Speedometer needle

Yes, the needle is press-on. I gently pulled mine off holding the circle base with my fingers and then tapped in back on with my finger.

Re: Please educate me on scammers when selling a car

Bruce, I’ve investigated tons of these cases. Their angle is to get you to cash the check, send them back some money and then you will find out, maybe even up to a couple weeks later that the check...

Re: 1941 Pickup Temp Gauge

Right. That one on eBay is a fuel gauge, but it looks like the other temp gauges I’ve seen for 41-47.

I’m wondering if anyone can identify which models got this green bar version?

Iím looking for the temp gauge to fit my 41 pickup and came across this one recently. From what Iíve seen, all the other temp gauges for 41-47 did not have that green bar in the middle.

Re: Radiator Shroud on a 1941 Pickup

Hey Charlie, can you post or send me a few pictures of how you installed the shroud and secured it to the radiator? I also have a 41 with the original radiator.

Re: Not Starting When Hot

Thanks guys. I tried just pressing on the gas while hitting the starter button. When it's real hot, like within 30 minutes of running it, it takes a few cranks, but it starts! Otherwise, a little gas...

It's a '41 with a rebuilt crab distributor. Ive double checked the vacuum brake to make sure it's set properly. I can't even tell you how many times I've reset and checked the timing. The ballast...

Re: Overheating in a few minutes.

I do not have timing marks on my pulley... I have just marked TDC with tape. I'll double check it and see if I can put 22 deg on there if static timing doesn't work. Thanks guys.

Re: Overheating in a few minutes.

Well, it runs after replacing the head, but it's doing the same overheating. I've run it for about 10 minutes and it got up to 210. I let it cool for about a half hour and drove it again for about 5...
