Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Dave, Ya beat me to a response. Of course you being younger and faster surely helped.
Like you, I use six point sockets and box wrenches whenever possible. Screw drivers get tossed or turned in to...

Re: 1940 Ford 1/2 ton restoration sequence?

Okay, thanks for the clarification.
I disassemble every vehicle at one time down to the last nut and bolt. To this day, I still take photos. If this is your first restoration, I'd suggest you take a...

Re: 1940 Ford 1/2 ton restoration sequence?

I believe there are a number of guys that visit this Barn that have "been there, done that". I'm quite certain any of them would need to know a bit more before offering any sound advice.
Such as:

Re: Extra quart of oil with oil filter system?

This subject has been approached so many times, it has become laughable. To me at least.
So many opinions yet so little actual research.
It's five quarts. Bob keeps his trophy.

Re: spark plug wires

Robert, Get in touch with Mike Driskell. He sells the nuts in two different thread pitches (sizes). Perhaps he'd be able to help.

Re: Front end lift.

Yes sir... replace the spring. It is very likely "worn out" and as such is not only sagging but is no longer offering the designed height and handling characteristics that Ford built in.

Re: spark plug wires

Okay, please explain why you would only replace two wires? Did you cut them by mistake or otherwise damage them?

Re: Help with OEM material of the car seats for a 40 Convertible

Ron, The seat cushions were leather. The back rests and side panels as well as door panels were "leatherette". The modern equivalent of "leatherette" would be vinyl.

Re: cabriolet vs roadster- 1936

Old Cars Value guide has been poopy for decades. When i was regularly selling #1 coupes in the $65 - $70 range, they had them pegged at $40. Same disparity for the convertibles I'd sold.

Re: Shackle pin, heads up

Russ, The diameters you'd found are within the Ford engineered specifications and as such there is no need to remove any so called "plating".
Ford used different metals for the casing on these pins....

Re: New 1940 Truck project ,front clip removal

Well, it sounds as if you are planning on bumping and filing. Thus, you will need to disassemble the front clip in to as many pieces as there are. Why take a chance at breaking and / or twisting...

Re: New 1940 Truck project ,front clip removal

As the grille is pot metal, it can easily break when placed under stress. that being the case, I'd remove the grille as an assembly first. Then, a fender and then the other fender.
