Re: '39 - '40 hood comparison

Message 40fords on here, his name is Gary and he's right in Wilmington. He'll have whatever you need, original hinges, hood, and anything else for a '40. Anyone in the tri state area with a '40...

Re: Who's gonna fill their shoes?

Well I turn 37 today and I'm pretty hardcore into old Fords. But I have been seeing a lot of good deals on cars lately as the owners pass on or it just gets to be too much to work on them.... It's a...

Re: Anyone know how to renew NJ QQ (antique) plates?

They just send it in the mail before it's due, you just have to fill out your insurance information to show the car is still legal and mail it back in. I'd go broke paying registration fees if it...

Re: Steering wheel shim

I doubt the welded stud would add enough mass to make any noticeable shake, especially being so close to the center of the drum.

Re: Lock it or Lose it

I've always tapped it for a set screw, same with the break off bolt that pins the column drop to the column.

Re: Opinion please

Agreed, I think the people in this post are the minority in preferring the '38. I'd much rather have a '37.

Re: Edmunds four barrel air cleaner

I think there are a lot of things currently marketed under the Edmunds name that were not actually available in the old days. That said, if you like it go for it I'm sure it would look good.

Re: 1946 rear shock brackets

Keep in mind, in a hot rod application, or any '32 really, the frame is much narrower than a '48, so by the time you mount the top of the shock to the crossmember and leave adequate clearance for the...

Re: 1940 Ford V8 Wouldn't Start

I hear ya. I think the number one plug is too far from the carburetor to be wet from pouring some gas down the the carb, unless you really poured way too much in there.

You've verified you have...

Re: 1940 Ford V8 Wouldn't Start

It should have sputtered at least, or maybe even ran for a few seconds on gas poured down the carburetor. Doesn't sound like a carb problem to me.

Re: halibrand models

Yes, the 101 is for the Model A rear, the 201 for the V8, and the 301 is the big Champ rear.

Re: 1940 Ford V8 Wouldn't Start

Pour some gas down the carburetor with a cup and see if it starts before you go spending money on a carb rebuild.

Re: Harbor Freight changes

A couple years ago I bought a floor jack and a couple dollar magnetic tray. I brought my 20% off coupon, the cashier said I couldn't use it on the jack. I had her scan it anyway, might as well save...

Re: Toilet paper oil filter adapter

Agreed, it's not like toilet paper rolls are any cheaper than regular oil filters.

Re: Correct replacement for Fram C181-A?

For what it's worth, I have a '55 Cadillac that takes the same filter. I usually use Wix 51006, the larger gasket fits the Cad housing where the smaller gasket fits my Ford flathead housing.

Re: Hagerty insurance ?

I've had Hagerty for almost twenty years. They were the only ones that would insure an antique car with a driver under 25 at the time, which is why I got them. I've got five cars on my policy at the...

Re: Initial start on new engine

Agreed. Also, I'd just put water in it, then change to antifreeze. If you are feeling confident that there won't be any leaks, go ahead and put antifreeze in up front. I've done it both ways.

I use a 24 (not F, F has the terminals reversed) in my '40 and '47.

Re: Convex mirror

I used a Grote 12014 on my '40 convertible, it makes a huge difference in the rear visibility. The mirror was pretty much useless without it.

Re: installing heater hose fitting

Last one I installed was probably 15 years ago, I might have put some RTV on there if I recall. It probably doesn't really need anything. It's still been leak free.
