Re: Trick to remove OFF ON ignition plate

I've always put a chisel under the plate. In my experience the repops look cheesy compared to originals. Did you find a reproduction that is stamped like original?

Re: What's up with Fastenal Blue Line freight?

I called them over the summer and they said they weren't doing outside freight due to covid, but they anticipated it going back to normal at some point. Maybe this is their way of baby stepping back...

Re: What year did Ford go from a keyed steering shaft to spline shaft for steering wh

Trucks went spline with the F1 in 1948, cars followed suit with the new body in '49. I have a F100 box in my roadster that I spliced the shaft from a junk '34 box on so I could run a '40's steering...

Re: carlisle report??

I went Friday, it was the best Carlisle I've been to in years. A lot more of the expensive collectibles that you usually find at Hershey than you usually find at Carlisle which makes for fun window...

Re: 1941 ford sedan vacum wiper motor and control

Take the wiper motor out, you'll see a small cover in the middle of it held on with two tiny screws. Remove that cover and you should see a fiber cam with a small spring holding it, put some three in...

Re: Help - 47' Gas Tank Fix or Replacement

I think mine came from Drake years ago, it fit no problem. I recently cleaned the one in my '40 because it didn't look too bad, but I still had an issue with a plugged fuel line. In retrospect I...

Re: dimmer switch 40-41

His foot is too big to fit between the clutch and the kick panel.

WTB 46-48 Ford brake cams

I need a complete set, all 8, of the round cams with the flat spot that go at the bottom of the brake shoes. I also need one retainer plate and I'd be interested in some good shoe spring clips also....

Re: Question on cam gear marks

I read too quickly, I saw 8ba rotating assembly in his initial post and assumed 8ba type distributor also.



Yes that is correct, same as anything else.

Re: Interior kick plates

I also went to an upholstery shop, they sold me some heavy board that is black in color, comes in about a 5x3 sheet. It's thin enough that it can be upholstered and still fit into the groove track to...

Re: Gone to Germany!-they race them there!

Maybe you couldn't sell it here because you advertised it as a '32 when it isn't?

Re: Question on cam gear marks

Right, but if he also set the distributor at #1 TDC at this point, that's wrong. Both timing marks should be straight up, not facing each other, at the firing point.

Re: Water pump castings

I grabbed a few off of someone's *free* table at Hershey last year. Nothing at Hershey is free. Right now they're probably worthless, but as time goes on the parts aren't getting any easier to get.

Re: '40 Ford visors

Better than it flopping down while driving. I'd leave it alone and normal use will probably loosen it up over time.

Re: Question on cam gear marks

I think you may have made an obvious mistake that nobody has caught yet. The timing marks on the cam and crank gears line up when the piston is at the top of the cylinder and the cam is at the...

Re: Hydraulic Brake Light Switch

I've had countless hydraulic switches fail in recent years. I've been using GM style lever switches on the bottom of the toe board. Napa SL129 or BWD S191

Re: 1939 to 1940 brake conversion

Since the hubs are not generally removed from the drum under normal circumstances I was considering it as a unit, but you are correct, he will need the hubs also.

Re: 1939 to 1940 brake conversion

You are going to need a set of 40-48 brake drums. They should be bolt on and go.

Re: 1946-1948 Mercury Dash Boards

That's chrome metal, but the chrome aftermarket trim dates back to the '50's. Just because it's old doesn't make it original.
