Re: electric fans

Hey Ken....I appreciate that reply. I understand the situation, especially with the hood/grill/radiator adjustment window (or lack thereof). And yes, those GM alternator bearings are not made to...

Re: 1941 super deluxe production number

Ya know, these cars were "given" their serial numbers when an "already-numbered" engine/trans assembly was dropped into the chassis at the assembly plant. I suppose it's humanly POSSIBLE that a...

Re: 1941 super deluxe production number

DUHHHH.............! I'm a little slow sometimes. Now I see, and you're correct. That is a '41 Merc number. And there is a four inch difference in wheelbase lengths between Ford and Merc. Hmmm! ...

Re: 1941 super deluxe production number

Just so that you fully understand, Ford intentionally used an "I" instead of "1" in the stamped serial numbers. It SHOULD read: 99A-I354387 . The 1941 sequences run as:

99A-650,280 thru ...

Re: 1940 Brake Bleeding

Hey Mike.....You say...."the wheel is tight to turn the wheel". Did you mean to say something like:

"If I tighten the NUT enough to line-up the holes, neither the wheel nor axle will turn"?
