Re: Mitchell overdrive in 36 ford coupe

You'll need to cut the floor.

Re: 1939 Deluxe Ford headlight buckets

Dave, You are correct of course. The inside was quite a bright shade of silver paint. I can't find a good photo to post here.

Re: 1939 Deluxe Ford headlight buckets

51MERC has this correct. Buckets were painted in full gloss black. Reflectors were silver plated.

Re: wheel adaptor plate

Frank, Speedway did sell them. I'm not certain if they still do.

Be certain to have the plate balanced prior to having a wheel / tire bolted to it.

If you don't, any imbalance in that plate...

Re: the build

I'd experienced a catastrophic failure of one of the new repop fiber gears just a few years ago. DESTROYED a fairly fresh (less than 1000 miles) Merc engine (1940).
I use ONLY NOS gears - both...

'39 -'40 FRONT CHASSIS super nice

This is one heck of a nice (complete) front chassis.
Brakes and drums are good. King pins were replaced a few years ago.
Steel is smooth, not pitted.

You could actually install this entire...

'39 Deluxe hood - a beauty!

This one is NICE guys. I'm thinning out the sheet metal stash. Priced cheap as I won't ship.
Braces are straight, threads are good. The sheet metal is SUPER STRAIGHT.

Re: Vacuum Bleeder?

I prefer a pressure bleeder. A good quality system can be found for under $100. Making an adapter is simple.

Re: 1940 Ford Convertible Wire Loom Routing

Just for clarity... ALL convertibles had these brackets and were bolted to the frame in this area forward of the dash.
Why some brackets had a hole in the left side and others did not requires...

Re: looking at a restored 36 ford coupe

I agree that IF a guy buys a car and breaks even when selling, the cost of ownership was quite reasonable. It was not "free" as it costs monies to store and maintain, insure, etc. Still, the fun...

Re: 1940 Ford Convertible Wire Loom Routing

Brackets are there of course - they, as you know, mount the body to the frame. NO hole in either side.

Re: 1940 Ford coupe spare tire brace

Yes, it is structural. How much support it offers? I have no clue.

Re: 1940 Ford Convertible Wire Loom Routing

I just went out and looked at the '40 convertible I am currently restoring. I had to look as the CRS is setting in. Anyway, NO hole in this one.

Re: 1940 Ford Convertible Wire Loom Routing

Well, yes, not exactly like other models but it works.

I tend to think Fords routing in that area was not of the best design - too much going on in a limited area.
Still, it works.

The few...

Re: 1940 Ford Convertible Wire Loom Routing

I route the wires just like any of the coupes I've restored. There is, as you surely know, a small wire clamp that fastens to the frame and keeps the loom in place.
I have restored (5) '40...

Re: 1940 Ford Convertible Wire Loom Routing

I am guessing what you are describing as "L" shaped bracket" is the dash panel mount to the frame. Yes?

Re: 46 rear brake line pictures

Here are some "before" (prior to restoration) pictures of an unmolested '46. These should help you replicate what Ford did.

Re: 1940 Deluxe Convertible Top Cover

It did not originally tuck. Rather, it was snapped at the top edge of the rear backrest.

Re: Carburator or Fuel Pump stock V8 Flathead

From the symptoms you'd described, this is not a coil issue.
I'd replace the accelerator pump.

Re: 1938 Woody Transmission Cover

Station wagon pan is the same. Be VERY aware that actually obtaining a pan from Bradley has a success rate near zero.

Re: Gas Tank for 40 Convertible Steel or Poly

I have used Drakes steel tank a time or two. Good quality but they are NOT the same width as an authentic tank.
I have always installed with the body off.
