Re: Salvage yards in Colorado

You could try Doug at Rocky Mt. Relics in WIndsor CO. He is at Hershey every year, but he tends to have older iron.

'40 Headlight circuit breaker amps

I have probably seen the amp rating for the stock '40 headlight circuit breaker somewhere, but can't seem to locate it. Can someone help me out with the correct amperage rating. Thank you.

Re: Reds headers & Brockman exhaust

That's what I used in the '40. Red's headers & exhaust pipes to the mufflers. I had to use 12" mellow tone mufflers from Van Pelt, as they were the only length that would fit in the X-member area....

Re: What to look for on a preliminary block inspection?

In my experience, if it's out of a later truck, like an 8RT, I would stay away from it as the trucks and other commercial vehicles they were in had hard life some hauling heavy loads on hot days,...

Thank you all. That's exactly what I wanted to know. It sounds like if I were a serious restorer it would be great investment.

Re: not a fan.

The engine shop that built the 59L for the '40 coupe balanced the '40 hub and fan, so balancing the unit should not be an issue.

Re: 32 spring bushings

It seems to me that some replacement shackle studs came with "marsden" nuts that are self locking and do not require a cotter pin. That may be why no holes for cotter pins. Unless it's for points, to...

Re: Type of paint typically used in the 1960's
