Re: Shifting A Columbia In A '40

Does anyone make a shorter speedo cable?? 70 plus inches is to long. I would like about 48 inch cable. This would go from the Columbia dash fire mount box to the turtle.

Re: 12 Volt battery to fit '40

I cut a piece of 1/4 plywood the shape of the battery, then sprayed it with bed liner. You can’t tell it’s there.

Re: Foil balls for clearance

Learned this from a Bonneville racer. Try using a small marble size ball of Bondo. Let set and harden. Slice the pancake in half, the cross section is your exact clearance. I’ve done it a few times.

Re: Location of tinfoil to check CR

A old Bonneville racer that I knew used a small marble size ball of “Bondo”. Would let it harder and you would have a perfect casting.

Re: Monarch hubcaps

They used to appear on eBay. I think Vintique reproduced them for a while .
