Pickup tailgate

I'm looking for a tailgate for a household project, I'd prefer a '40 tailgate with the V8 stamp, but I'd be interested in anything. Rough shape is okay, not looking to spend a ton on this. Thanks!

Re: No oil pressure on new build

I had an issue on an 8ba where the idler gear in the back of the block that drives the oil pump was installed backwards, causing it to not mesh and not spin the oil pump.

Re: Radiator Question

Could be 41, they dropped down like a 40.

Re: Early Allen vacuum meter

Just clean it up with some chrome or plastic polish. I think the yellowed lens gives it character as long as you can still read the instrument.

Re: '39 running boards?

I replaced the rubber on my '40. As long as your metal structure is in good shape it's a good way to go, but it's a lot of work. You have to strip all of the old rubber off. I used a torch and a...

Re: Edmunds four barrel air cleaner

Cal Custom used to make a cast aluminum adapter ring to use a more modern air cleaner on the early 4 barrels, I have one on my 331. I think I've even seen newer plastic versions.

Re: Source for GL 140 Gear Oil is here.

Re: Flathead Cams

I currently have a max 1, an 88, and a 400jr. I'd go with the 88 for what you are looking for.

Re: Harmon Collins build thread ...

I'm still curious to hear what you think about the reproduced rotor and center cap that was being offered a while back? I had a set but wound up letting it go.

Re: Reproduction Hubcaps

I always thought the early repop caps that didn't have the name, or had a different name in the same font, were pretty neat even if only as wall hangers. Unfortunately the new reproductions look nice...

Re: 1940 dashboard

When someone restored my convertible in the '70's they painted the dash woodgrain. It reminds me of an old console radio.

Re: changing oil on 39 for flathead?

I mean, I guess for a driver it's okay. But damn that's ugly.

Re: Who's gonna fill their shoes?

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

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.

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.
