Re: Drive shaft lock pin

If that end sticking out was heated dull cherry red (with the red and green wrench), it would have been peened over in short order. Something that small would have heated up really fast and not...

Re: My 1939 Foed Deluxe Vert w/Rumble Seat

What you have there is one of the most desirable early Fords, a 39 convertible. Looks to be a very nice one at that. Welcome to this forum!

Re: Center bearing

Usually the rubber that holds the bearing has turned to snot. i have a picture of a NOS bearing in the Std Coupe album and the KRW tool that installs it in my MISC photo album.

Re: My 1939 Foed Deluxe Vert w/Rumble Seat

Unless a 39 back half of the car was grafted on, like Kube said 40s didn't have rumble seats. I think it must be a 39. A picture of the dash would help. If it was stuff grafted on a 40 it would be...

Re: Monster V8 and collectable auction July 17/18th

Re: Stupid paint question...

Re: flathead torque tube bearing

If you can obtain a NOS or good bearing and borrow the KRW tool to install it, it is a simple job. In my MISC album there are pictures of the tool. It both removes and installs the bearing. When...

Re: '39 Rear Bumper Arms on '40?

That same bumper was used on the rear of the station wagon, i looked for 25 years for the one for my wagon, much flatter and hole spacing different. It was optional on pickup trucks and most didn't...

Re: 1940 Ford Deluxe Fordor Newbie

Welcome, I have 2 40s and have experience working on them. I restored one to be judged and one to just drive. You are doing the right thing for your aunt and the car.

Re: uphostery

Glad that the stock old Fords I have are already upholstered with LB kits from long ago. Doing a concourse car just got even more expensive it sounds like.

Re: 1940 Ford Paint

The Restoration Shop line of paint at TCP Global would have what you want. I used their Cloud Mist Gray on my 40 business coupe. Happy with results.

Re: Vacuum Bleeder?

The HF near me sells Mighty Vac brand. My old aluminum Mighty Vac was all corroded up and I bought a new one and was glad to see it was mostly plastic. Have no problem bleeding brakes with it.
