Re: Parts unknown

Might all be Lincoln. I think those hinges look like what I saw on a 40 Lincoln I helped work on for a restoration, with the dual springs. Last picture looks like a cowl light bracket maybe earlier...

Re: Vacuum Bleeder?

The HF near me sells Mighty Vac brand. My old aluminum Mighty Vac was all corroded up and I bought a new one and was glad to see it was mostly plastic. Have no problem bleeding brakes with it.

Re: flathead refresh

Since this has already been done 1 time before, as already stated, the taper in the cylinders must be pretty significant. It wouldn't be as successful as the first time for sure if you did that so...

Re: Stolen

I live in a rural area and DO have friends with acreage, guns and a backhoes (like the sign). I would love to introduce the perps to them.

Re: 1940 Clock Help - Merc & Ford

My late brother was a clock and watch repairman. He had the tools to make springs. I would think any good clock and watch guy could make a new mainspring for your clock. It isn't tiny like a...

Re: 1940 Ford Convertible Wire Loom Routing

Mike, is that car early, middle or late? How many snaps on the trim by the corner for the boot?

Re: 1940 Ford Convertible Wire Loom Routing

Looking at old pictures of my convertible, it did have the hole in that bracket.
Calling that an L bracket threw me off thinking it was smaller. I guess you did called it the LH cowl mount to the...

Re: 1940 Ford Convertible Wire Loom Routing

Hi Larry, I sure don't remember anything like that on my 40 convertible. Perhaps it is an early/late thing. Seems like Kube would have run into this. My car was a mid production year model. I...

Re: Eddie Meyer Intake

Looks like it is missing the upper part. In my 32 5w album there is a picture of mine with 2 Stromberg 81s. The one I have is old.

Re: 1940 Deluxe Convertible Top Cover

There are 2 versions of that top boot because of the early/late number of snaps on the out side when viewed from the side. Make sure what you get matches your car.

Re: Ouestion..40 Ford brakes

Yes, that is the style puller you should use on the old Ford rear hubs.

Re: Ouestion..40 Ford brakes

Ok, I didn't know you had a non stock setup there. Nice for you but you still need to verify that the hub is tight on the axle or problems will occur. What you describe sure makes it easy to check...

Re: Ouestion..40 Ford brakes

Ed, getting the rear drums off IF PROPERLY TIGHT can be a challenge without the proper puller that pulls on the ridge of the hub close to the nut that holds it on. You will hear of a KRWilson puller...

Re: ID Issue with a 1932 Ford

Are you sure the frame is not a remake? Maybe the cabriolet body had been put on a remake frame. Pictures of the frame and crossmembers would be a help, especially the fasteners holding the...

Re: Can this be welded?

Tom, oil soaked aluminum is no fun to try to TIG weld. Ask anyone who has welded up (or tried) a 32 aluminum pan. I have extras of those so don't bother getting it welded. I also have ethanol...

Re: Old hydraulic brake conversion on a '32

Todd, I have the Lacy kit on both my 32s, and it requires no modifications to the pedal or the K member, no holes to drill. In your case you might not want to use Lacy's master cylinder as it is a...

Re: '39 - '48 Master Cyl...rear hyds on a '32

If the backing plates will rotate on the housing enough you could mark them and re-drill the holes. Since they need to be bled anyway if you re-drilled another pair, you could probably swap them in...

Gary, call Tacoma Speedometer (253) 582-3890, they probably know what you need and can make any kind of cable or tell you what would work.

Re: '32 E brake?

Tom, you can even see the original "Butler" finish on the lower part of the lever. I am sure the patina guys would like that as is. It is very complete.
