Re: rear end identification

No difference apparent on the outside. Inside, the only difference being the axles teeth changed from 18 to 16, and the matching Spider gear. Those sets are interchangeable. Pull up the link I posted...

Re: Steering Wheel Covers

It was Grand Auto Supply, which became O'Reilly Auto Parts in 2009. Just a cellophane package item, you might still find one.

Re: Steering Wheel Covers

I bought a 16" leather cover, had a hell of a time to stretch it over my '38 banjo wheel, but it does fit like a glove and has been on there now for almost 30 years. Nothing beats real leather.

Re: 1937 speedo gear failure/replacement

Ron, Is the turtle geared as original, or has the gear itself been changed out to match the speed of a differential gear change? Count the teeth on the worn gear and compare to the number on the...

Re: Perfect work bench

What is the screwdriver sitting on? Some kind of fulcrum?
And what's with that number 4 at the tip?

I've never seen a hammer like that, but I do have 3 sizes of those screwdrivers I inherited...

Re: Ford GT 2018 $1125000 BJ just now

Mike, you ask "Seriously?' ...Read my post again and look for the :rolleyes: 'roll eyes sarcastic' icon!

Actually, I think I'd get more use out of the 1961 VW 23 window that sold for $265,000! ...

Re: Ford GT 2018 $1125000 BJ just now

Yeah, you guys are right. What a waste of money! I wouldn't have it taking up space in my garage if they gave it to me. Piece of garbage. :rolleyes:

Re: Best spark plug

By the time you need another set of plugs, you buy another box of ten, just like when you see the bottom of the mayonnaise jar, you chuck it out it and open a fresh one. :D

Re: Car at auction

Bob, Your post adds considerably to the provenance of the car and should be of value to any new owner.
Are you able to provide confirmation that you have no interest in the sale?

Re: Best spark plug

I've never had a problem with Champion H10C. They're cheap as all get out and get the job done.

Re: Not Ford flathead but interesting 3D technology

That's fantastic! Recreated history! Not likely for a flathead, though, the guy said you'd need a big fat wallet.

Re: vacuum source

Dave, If your engine is stock as you say, the fitting will screw into the aft driver side intake manifold. It will be a threaded hole near the manifold's mounting bolts, similar to another vacuum...

Re: redneck gas tank story

I was young and dumb when I sat on a fender dribbling gas into a carb while a friend drove blind (hood up) up a steep driveway after the car offloaded from a trailer in the street. I'm glad I'm not...

Re: Brake Adjustment

My '38 has mechanical brakes, but from what I remember about hydraulics, pump and release slowly to prevent bubbles, do the right rear first (farthest from MC), left front last (closest to MC). Back...

Re: Antique Auto Radiator Repair and Restoration

I haven't used Ospho, but 19Fordy's description of it sounds like my experience with Rustmort. I removed the caked on dirt and rust from my floorboard with putty knives and wire brushes, then slopped...
