Re: Throwout bearing chirping

Now it is chirping when the clutch is depressed. It is going to have to get a lot worse for me to pull the engine. In the mean time, is there any way to put lubricant on it through the inspection...

Re: Shout out to SwoopNZ!

Chris is a fine man indeed. Although I've not met the man face to face, I have had a great friendship with him for better than twelve years.

Re: Anyone with issues with Coker Tires out of round, I found a solution

I don't believe Coker does any tire manufacturing in house. I believe it is all outsourced.

Re: 1939 ford dash

All '39 closed are dashes are identically shaped / formed.
The open car and wagon dashes are identical.

Re: 1939 ford dash

Massage it? It would demand considerably more effort than a simple massage.
Closed car dash is narrower than an open dash. Closed car dash is deeper than an open dash. Closed car dash has an opening...

Re: Need car hauled from PA to Denver

I tend to agree with RKS. While a '47 convertible wouldn't be terribly expensive to replace, why risk damaging it?
This is after all, your dream car.
Now, in my opinion, is not a time to go cheap.

Passport. Used their services for decades. NEVER an issue.

Re: 1938 battery

Alan, I can only speak to the '39 (standard) batteries I'd received from that company. They were, as you'd correctly stated, not identical to the authentic and did require some modifications to the...

Re: 1938 battery

They were painted from the factory. At least in '39 and '40. I can't speak with authority of other years.

Re: 1938 battery

Alan is 100% correct of course.
Still, if you want it to appear fairly close to authentic, the 2HF will do the trick for the most part.
I have used these by modifying the hold down components in...

Re: Terrible mistake at a professional auction

David, I am 6'2" and have adequate leg room in my '36 roadster. There could be a bit more (leg room) to make me super comfy, but hey, this is a '36 Ford. I get it :)

I'd never driven a phaeton so...

Re: Terrible mistake at a professional auction

These models, even truly nice ones that are correct have taken a nosedive in value in recent years.
In my opinion, this one sold about right. Fun car for not much money.

Re: Starter to oil pan bracket

Re: 1940 Ford coupe headliner installation

Rear windows must be removed. Glue the lining in very well. I prefer 3M contact cement. Once it is very dry, using a razor, remove any material from the edge that the glass (seal) would push against....

Re: 1940 column shift clip

There is a thin wave washer beneath the circlip.
I don't believe they have ever been reproduced.
In the past, when I have needed one, I have utilized the clip that holds the brake lever to the...

Lawson, keep in mind, the 60HP bracket is not the same as the 85.

Re: Starter to oil pan bracket

That one will work but is not correct for a 39 - 40 engine.

Re: Starter to oil pan bracket

I'd figured cases were cracking due to no bracket and that's why Ford added it.
I know in the 60's, Chevy added a bracket to their starters. Many guys would not reinstall it (kind of a pain to do...

Re: 40 Ford sedan location of choke & throttle rod joint?

I can only offer a guess as to what you have there. A photograph would go far in offering a definitive answer.
My guess?
well, if you in fact have the correct rods, then I'd say you have the pieces...
