Re: Help with ashtray retainers and ashtray in a 1940 dash

I have not used aftermarket ash trays so I don't know how well they fit. However, I have found VERY FEW remakes of anything that were exactly like the originals. You clearly have the later models. ...

Re: Help with ashtray retainers and ashtray in a 1940 dash

Maybe you have the Lefts and Rights mixed up. You should be able to put the ash try in the correct retainer easily in you hand. You might have the left retainer with the right ash tray or vice...

Re: Help with ashtray retainers and ashtray in a 1940 dash

If you have the correct retainers, they are held in with 2 small sheet metal screws. There are Left and Rights on the retainers and ash trays and covers. The early ones are completely different and...

Re: Flathead V8 Distributor Slot in Cam shaft

Re: Failing health

Balance is controlled by both of your inner ears. There are small loose nodule like things called otoliths (think of it as "rocks in your head) that move around in your inner ear as your position...

Re: Brake knocking

Re: 33/34 glove box radio mount question

Re: ultimate flathead

Re: Woodie Auction today in Auburn, IN

Luckily, mine is not for sale but the value of our old Fords is depressing. I guess the only good thing about that is the insurance is less.

Re: 266 versus 276 CI?

Perhaps your machinist did a sonic test and determined there was enough core shift to make the recommendation he did. If it were me, I would listen to him.
