No alteration and it is excellent condition as well as the wood floor boards. I solved the problem to my satisfaction.

Re: Tattersfield, a piece of history.

Next time I get by where the heads are I will take a couple photos of the combustion chamber. They are very small compared to even the original 8.75 CR Navarro heads on the 59. These were vintage...

Several photos of Tattersfield heads if you have not seen them. These were on the old 59AB stock car motor in the roadster. The engine owner kept the heads and dual Tattersfieold manifold when I got...

Re: '40 Trunk seal 91A-7243720

Because I had the trunk lid off, I did that way because of the access. At the top, i used several thin pieces of wood along side the seal to push into the bottom of the channel, and masking taped...

Re: Black single stage paint.

A little of topic, but the '40 coupe was painted black over my favorite color, cloud mist gray, probably with lacquer in the '60s. I never plan to repaint it as the some of the lacquer has crazed and...

Re: '40 Trunk seal 91A-7243720

I have installed the seal without the adhesive and it looks ok. I had the trunk lid off to do some other work. I may put it back on to check how the seal fits, but I expect it would be easier to...

Re: 39 Standard Generator to 12V

That's a great idea, getting the reman Delco generator from Rock Auto. I checked, and they are still available for the same price and shows they were used on at least 1962-1964 Fords. They list them...

Re: '40 Trunk seal 91A-7243720

Thank you again 19Fordy. 1st, it looks like the new seal I have is different than the one you used, as it fits as is without having to cut and glue, and has bonded corners. Also, in the 6th picture...

Re: 12 Volt battery to fit '40

I measured a Group 24 & 24R at O'reillys, and they were both the same measurements, 10"L x 6/14"W x 8"H. The difference between the 24 & 24R is the location of the negative and positive posts. I...

Re: '40 Trunk seal 91A-7243720

Thank you 19Fordy. It appears in the 4th & 5th photos that the thin side of the seal is facing up. That is how the seal I got from DC fits. I wonder if the thick side actually seals against the edge...

Re: '40 Trunk seal 91A-7243720

I believe Carpenter's seal # 91A-7243720, and Drake's 91A-713540 are the same, with different #s, and likely made by Carpenter as it has DC Mfg. USA on it. Both illustrations, as poor as they are...
