Re: Front Fenders and Seat ID needed. 1939 Mercury or?

Merc fenders are noticeably longer from the rear of the wheel opening to the running board due to the Mercury’s longer wheelbase.

Re: 1932 3W parked in 1952

39 dash patch needed

Looking for a donor dash or just the section around the gauge area to repair a hacked up 39 convertible dash. I’d buy a whole dash or just a section.

Re: 34 Cabriolet rear window frame needed

Do you know the exact dimensions of those frames? I have a rear window frame that was in a pile of parts I got when I bought my 39 convertible. It is smaller than the 39 frame, but I’m not sure what...

Re: Chrome Prices

If it’s good quality triple plating, that price is not out of line. One of the larger chromers in the country just recently posted on social media a multi part pictorial following two grille halves...

Re: Need to put PS on a 51 Ford Victoria

I recently installed an electric power steering assist unit in a friends car. It was an EPAS brand kit that he had purchased. You have to cut your steering column and this basically splices in the...

Re: oil pans

A friend of mine gave me the engine out of his old retired 47 ton and a half grain truck. Of course it had the big 4 speed and 11" clutch and came from the factory with the two piece pan. I thought...

Re: Junk or repairable?

That is what I had planned except I was planning to sleeve all four of the head bolt holes with a .625 od tube instead of .500 after I make the welding repairs. It's hard to tell how thick the wall...

Re: Junk or repairable?

These are the only ones I find on this head. I'll blast the other one this evening and check it out. I have an oven and a tig as well as a mill, so I'll probably give it a go anyway. The heavy...

Junk or repairable?

I bought these old 59A style Sharp heads and after blasting one, I see that I may have bought some nice wall art. What do you guys think?

Re: Little off topic, metallic paint.

John Worden is correct. Gun setup is also equally critical. Are you using a 1.3 or 1.4 size tip? How many rounds out from seated have you screwed the fluid tip adjuster? How much air pressure? These...

Main cap studs or bolts?

I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I did a search and couldn't find anything. I am preparing to assemble my engine (59 style block) and would like opinions on main cap fasteners. When I...

Re: 1939 Ford

It sounds like you have a pretty rare piece there. I only know the history of my car back to 1960, not sure beyond there. RonO

Re: Zephyr gears or not?

Did a rough check of the rear gear tonight by marking the tire and rotating the driveshaft twice method. Looks like I have 3.78s in it, so looking at the cars weight and this rear gear, I think I...
