Re: 1939/1940 Horn Suppliers

Re: 40 Ford windnoise

Don't buy the seal Carpenter sells for the body above the door from the B pillar to the top hinge. The Drake one is the correct shape. What I got from Carpenter looks like it would fit a road...

Re: question and maybe a picture

I had a French block and it seemed like the front of the engine was like an 8BA and the back (bellhousing) was like a 59 series. I think the pumps would be 8ba style pumps and for there are early...

Re: head stud removal

When you say "blow out with a gas torch" are you talking about using a cutting head or are you suggesting an air nozzle after heating the remaining stud to the point of melting? Seems like a cutting...

Re: 40 Bumper Jack and Stowage Location

Yes that is it. On a 40 station wagon, there is an opening on the left side under the middle seat where the floor kicks up that has a receptacle there for the jack and tool pouch. I had a sedan...

Re: T5 guys TKX

If you drive the old 3 speed box a lot, you will get tired of coming to a stop before shifting into low. If you do it on the move you will eventually ruin the low reverse gear and probably the...

Re: We live in truly amazing times!

Re: Cracked steering column sleeve

I have seen 40 mast jackets broke off about 1 1/2 inches from the bottom and figured it was from collision damage. I didn't notice it until I removed the column as the broken piece was the exact...

Re: 1940 Ford fuel gauge issue

All the KS 6v sending units are the same up to I think 56 or whenever they went to 12 v. The rod the float goes on is different for different tanks. There are also stops you bend to adjust the...

Re: Found A Used 1940 Ford a Pickup Hood Ornament

Yeah Mike, I don't trust my memory much. That is why I usually preface anything I write here with "I believe, or I think"!! We all could probably use memory enhancing drugs!
