Re: Rotors

I would think if you pushed a thin piece of paper down over the shaft wth the rotor it could take up the slack. I think I have seen a thin spring metal piece on the end of a distributor shaft too.

Re: Ford banjo rear v8 script glass lens

These lenses were vacuum formed out of a white plastic or plexiglas about 3/16" thick. The logos were not stickers but painted or silkscreened on. If the guy doesn't make them anymore, it would be...

You mean like these? I bought these at Hershey many years ago and with a junk banjo and wasted torque tube made this light for my shop. 33 V8 on one side 40 V8 (std) on the other....

Re: Speaking of Air Filters

91A is definitely for a 39. It looks a little different then the 39 I had. I wonder if it is a truck air cleaner even though it is not stamped 91C ?

Re: Tom Trautwein

I know Walter was an honest person, don't know a lot about his son. I used to talk with them at Hershey each year as they had a lot of old Ford parts as well as items they made. Everyone I know...

Re: 41 helmet clearances

Re: Successful local Swap Meet today South WA State

The quarter patches and tail are relatively easy, the rusted off rain gutters is a HUGE job to fix right. Think Kube's current picture! The gutters are on a flange that is sandwiched and welded...

Re: possible interest in another new restoration project? '40 convertible

Huge indeed. 90% of the cars in primer are that way because the owner can't do or won't pay for what it takes to put shiny paint on the car. Especially black or dark colors. Certainly any of your...

Re: possible interest in another new restoration project? '40 convertible

After removing thousands of spot welds, you get really good at it!!
While the owner will have about the same amount of money in it in the end, at least he is having you fix a car with major...

Re: crash

Well, if you have no permanent damage to yourself (which I REALLY HOPE), that is most important. Truly sad. I wouldn't think a Suzuki could harm an old Ford that seriously which should have...

Re: LH 1940 Convertible "Peep Mirror"

Re: spacer for a 39 flathead fan

I have a 19A fan that is about 3/4" longer then the 91A, maybe you could look for one of them if that is the distance you need (or PM me if it would work for you, I would sell it)
