Re: 1940 Ford accessory hot water heater installation

I just refurbished my heater and it is straight-forward just like the diagram shows. You just need all the parts.

Re: No Thermostats

Excellent. Not sure what I was thinking, of course they are mechanical. I think I can get an oil pressure gauge with a copper line. Thanks.

Re: No Thermostats

Are those gauges 6 volt or are they 12 volt “stepped up” to run on 6 with a converter?

No Thermostats

Removed all the peripheral components in preparation for pulling the engine from my 40 convertible and I found no thermostats. No wonder it never got the temperature gauge to move very far. My...

Re: Removing the Flywheel

You guys are a wealth of knowledge! It's like listening to my grandpa all over again. He'd be 123 YO! My grandpa never owned any vehicle but a Ford and used to work in the Ford Garage in...

Re: Removing the Flywheel

Well, the engine is not out. Everything is ready to pull it out except the "new" bracket for my engine stand is being ordered from Stumpy's. I am not willing to take the chance on breaking the...

Re: Removing the Flywheel

You are probably right. The engine needs detailing and paint. I won’t be driving until the trans go in. Does it make sense to put the engine and trans together and put them in as a unit? I’m...

Re: Removing the Flywheel

I just discovered that it will not come out of the hole. Now that is a poor piece of engineering by Ford. I had to put the clutch assembly back on the flywheel and used a couple of pry bars and off...

Re: Removing the Flywheel

I am refacing the flywheel and I am using a block of wood at 9 and 3 and it moves about a 16th or so back and forth but it doesn’t want to let go. The pan is not off.

Re: Roll a 40 with no tranny?

That makes sense. I’m only pushing/towing it 150’, very slowly.

Re: 40 Flathead to 1965 MUSTANG Trans

That's where the parallel leaf springs and shocks come in, correct?

Re: 40 Speedo to open driveline

Are there any issues with alignment of the driveline if I keep the Banjo and convert the transmission to an open driveline connection? Anything else to consider?

40 Flathead to 1965 MUSTANG Trans

Anyone ever mate a 221 Flathead to a RAT or RAN fully synchronized 3 speed? Mounting could be an issue. Let me know.

Re: 40 Speedo to open driveline

Thanks Bruce. Great info to have to make my decision. I can keep the banjo or swap it out, it depends on how much I want “to open the jar”! One thing leads to another, it always does. Pat

Re: 40 Speedo to open driveline

Excellent. Thanks for the info. I am going to have VanPelt rebuild the original 40 trans with these specifications. You saved me a lot of investigation.

Re: What year is my engine?

Thanks. Do we have a date range that it might be? I’ll take a look for that casting location.

Re: What year is this truck?

It was a logging operation and it was left to be cannibalized.
