Re: windshield seal on a 46

I usually use the seals from Drake. Don't know who supplies Mac's. The Merc and Ford use the same seal.

Re: WHO Is the Oldest Early V8 Forum Member?

I'm 76 headed soon for 77. Graduated from Model Ts in my teens to Model As and then to the V-8 Club in 1974.

Re: rear and front bumper brackets on 41 ford

You can do two things with the 40-41 pickup. You can get the proper rear irons (original or repo) that have the drop in them or use 40 passenger car rear irons which raise the rear bumper up almost...

Re: Dropped axle

Had mine dropped 2". I don't think they drop it more than two as it stretches the axle too far. That with the reversed eye main leaf gets the car down just right. If you are using an old spring I...

Re: Dropped axle

Having an original Ford axle dropped is the way to go. Somehow I just don't have a lot of faith in those cheap dropped axles (cast) I see on e-Bay or other sites.

Re: Dropped axle

Wasn't aware of that. I got the axle directly from Sid who came to the Turlock swap meet and I assumed he did the job. Whoever did it did a good job.

Re: 1940's Los Angeles Dowtown !

Good one. Typical L.A. with lots of smog. At 1:42 you see a hiboy roadster going down the street with somebody in the rumble seat and at 3:12 there's an A roadster parked at the curb. Lots of good...

Re: Dropped axle

I used Nostalgia Sid in Oklahoma. He has a Facebook page. Did great job in dropping a '40 axle and he can also drop the stock steering arms on your spindles.

Re: 1932 radiator

You can try US Radiator or Custom Auto Radiator. Brass works does an excellent job, but the others may be a little cheaper.

Re: Engine removal '38 deluxe

I took a motor out of a '38 for a rebuild some years ago. I found it much easier to remove the grill and take it out through the front. Left transmission in the car. I did remove the floorboards to...

Re: V-8 Times

Tubman you are correct. Saving on postage is the reason there has not been a dues increase in V-8 Club dues for many years.

Re: 1951 Ford Victoria Headliner

Not in all cars. Some cars need the glass out as the rubber seal holds the front or back of the headliner in place. Sure you can glue it in place , but it is not correct and doesn't always hold.
