Re: 1940 Ford Coupe Headliner Question

FWIW, I believe the correct term for the "grabber strips" is Door Tins.

Re: E 3 spark plugs

Reminds me of the "Fire Injector" plugs from J C Whitney back in the 70's. Don't recall that they did much for my Pinto station wagon:(

Re: 40 turn signal options??

IMHO, unless you you've tested these units and have their wiring schematics, it's probably easier just to buy a new one complete with instructions.

Re: Paul Bradley Response

Yes, but as I recall, Wally showed up, took pity on the Griswolds, and let them in the park. So, maybe there's hope after all;)

Re: Shifting A Columbia In A '40

Don't think it hurts anything, but it's harder on the clutch and slows acceleration. I've done it a few times myself when it wasn't possible to back up (e.g., at a stop sign with a car right behind...

Re: radial tires

Diamondback sells radials made by various Japanese manufacturers. They add whitewalls using their own process. I've had a set on my '40 for several years and have been quite happy with them.

Re: Phenolic Spacer

I drilled a hole in the 1" phenolic spacer under the Holley 4bbl in my '40 and screwed in a barb hose fitting to supply the Columbia.

Re: 1939 ford deluxe Starter Button Question

In my case, the Fahnestock Clip was not holding the wire tightly. I inserted a second, short piece of wire, and that firmed things up. A short nail would probably work too.
