Re: 40 Ford LED tailights

Paint the inside of the light housing white and then slip a good flashlight reflector over the bulb socket. It will brighten those '40 lights right up and a lot cheaper than the LEDs.

Re: Water pump castings

Check with Daryl Fryer who rebuilds pumps. His # is 909-335-1416. I know he asks for cores when he sends his rebuilt pumps. He does a great job on his rebuilds.

Re: Upper Steering Column Bearing

I've always used the bearing, sleeve and spring from the later Ford columns. You can get the kit from C and G Parts and other V-8 parts vendors.

Re: Wildfire evacuation

Maybe that genius can reveal the kid's gender to his fellow prisoners when he's sentenced to prison for 30 or 40 years. Stupidity can be a terminal disease.

Re: 1952 ford flathead AUTOMATIC

Sounds like you may have some loose or worn linkage. If the backside of your column is severely worn it may allow the shifter to fail to lock properly in the park detent of the column. The next gear...

Re: wiper switch 39 truck

There should be a knob on the dash with a small rod that connects the knob to the arm on the wiper.
