Re: Correct generator for a '40 Ford

Not even close to correct.

It is 1941 Canadian COE.

It also appears to be service stock and not even concourse correct for 1941.

Re: 34 starter cable color

So, to answer your original question: The cable can be any color you prefer as you do not have a stock vehicle.

Re: 1940 Coupe side quarter glass installation

Tom, I had found this very same issue when a client sent me Sanders glass for his restoration. It was much thinner the stock glass. As I recall, nearly .030" thinner.
I prefer having my glass to be...

Re: The case for sacrificial anodes in your cooling system

Methinks I am sooo out of my league here. And you say you didn't do well in chemistry?
Crap, you make me look silly.

Re: The case for sacrificial anodes in your cooling system

Hmmm... not certain what the anode was made of. I had a number of them (NOS) that were made specifically for the reason you and I had installed them. I'm guessing these were from the late 40's. ...

Re: The case for sacrificial anodes in your cooling system

Tubman, I have to wonder what else might be going on in your cooling system.
I'd installed NOS heads on my '36 roadster about two years ago. At that time, I'd installed a diode in the same fashion...

Re: My 1939 Foed Deluxe Vert w/Rumble Seat

Closed car is just that, a model with a fixed roof. An open car is one where the roof can be lowered. The dash boards are very different between the two types of cars (open vs. closed) as are the...

Re: My 1939 Foed Deluxe Vert w/Rumble Seat

I suppose it's possible you have the correct glove box lid. The picture makes it appear as if it's from a closed car dash.
Picture attached is a proper 39 convertible dash.

Re: My 1939 Foed Deluxe Vert w/Rumble Seat

Yep, looks like a decent old Ford.

Start looking for a convertible love box door now. They are kinda tough to find.

Re: How much is 6 volts?

To answer the question asked, right around 6.3v fully charged. Optima or acid, it's still right about 6.3v.

Re: Rusted up fuel pump again on 49 woody hot rod

Ya know, I have had the same experience with you. Modern cars or old cars, each and every one has been fine sitting for months on end. ZERO issues.
I do not use any additives.

Re: My 1939 Foed Deluxe Vert w/Rumble Seat

And of course NO rumble seat in '40.
Dash boards, floor shift vs. column can and were often swapped.
Sounds like a '39 to me.
The hood should have Ford on one side and Deluxe on the other.

Re: What was it in its previous life?

Looks like it was a 40 coupe at one point. Not much there worth saving I'm afraid.

Re: 3" Shock Links 1940 Coupe

Stiff is good. NO lubrication.
If you have a sway bar on your Ford V8, you must use 4" links... don't forget.

Re: 1939 Ford 2 Door Standard Rear Tail Lights

The standard came with but one tail lamp. Three states (I seem to recall three) required two lamps. Those cars would have been fitted with both a left and right lamp.
In that case, the installation...
