Re: 1941 column shift-need shift knob

No knob on it, but the shift lever isn't threaded. It has about an inch of serrations for a push-on knob.

Re: 1941 column shift-need shift knob

I've got a 41 rolling chassis sitting out back. I'll go have a look-see.

Is there a place to get replacement rubber? My car is missing the one at the trans.

Re: Front seat springs for 41 Tudor

I happen to have a 41 Tudor seat that's got decent springs, but you're a long way from Texas.

Re: help on overhaul failure

That sentence right there says a lot about your engine builder. As a former 2-stroke motorcycle racer who has seen a few seized cylinders, I can tell you that a piston seizure will not score the...

Re: Float-A-Motor mounts

I think my car may be missing this part. It has FAM mount at bellhousing and stock front mount.

Re: Steel wheels

Seems to be lots of confusion on this subject. Jim Brierley is correct. The necessary flat spacer is about .125" thick, and goes over the studs to leave a flat area for the back of the solid wheel to...

Re: 41 coupe exhaust

Duals would probably have to follow the path of the OG exhaust, then run the driver's side pipe back across the car somewhere near the rear crossmember or under the center of the X-member if you want...

Re: 41 coupe exhaust

I don't have pictures, and don't have a smartphone, but I have a 41 rolling chassis handy. The stock routing is from left side under oil pan, joining right side, and down the passenger side of the...

Re: 41 Ford gas tank installation

I just crawled under the 41 I am parting out to have a look. It's the same as bigdoor described. The bolts at the back are drilled and safety-wired.

Re: 15w-40

FYI: Zinc levels in Rotella T have been reduced below the ~1200 ppm level that's supposed to keep flat-tappet cams alive. SOMEWHERE I've saved a web page that shows the zddp levels of most major...

Re: Cracked heads

Must be. Buying a new head seems to be less of a gamble than a used one. I'm thinking I may end up with one of the new Winfield repro's that we've been seeing updates about. Out of four stock heads...

Are ALL the heads for Model A's cracked? Seems like every one I find has cracks somewhere.

Re: Title help in TX

You'd think so. AFAIK, none of the County Tax Assessor/Collectors are actually doing these hearings. In my county, it's go bonded or go home. What's crappy is that the minimum value now for bonding...

Re: Torque wheels

You'll probably get more money if you sell the hot rod parts and the engine separately.

Re: Shelf Life of Gasolene & other facts

No air space means no place for the vapors to expand into. We all have seen half-filled, sealed, plastic gas cans swell up like a balloon on a hot day, and crush in when it gets cold. Fill that same...

Re: Shelf Life of Gasolene & other facts

The reason ETOH gasoline doesn't last long is that it is hygroscopic. It attracts and absorbs moisture from that atmosphere. A SEALED container that's full (no air space) is the only effective way to...

Is a repro flat trunk floor available, or do those of us trying to convert from rumble to trunk have to find an original?
