Re: 39 coupe interior

Terry, Most '39's didn't have an insulator as the original poster referred to.
In fact the 39's had a heavy tar paper identical to the stuff in the roof of the car and between the inner and outer...

Re: 1934 standard roadster?

DavidG, While I don't consider myself a '32 = '34 guy, I read each and every one of your posts if for no other reason, just to learn new things.
I'd like to thank you for sharing your knowledge and...

Re: 39 coupe interior

Yep, same page. Like I'd mentioned previously, it was not originally glued down. I'm guessing it's just stuck due to age.

Re: 39 coupe interior

Andy, the new Benton Gray mat will come with a modern type backing. It is fine to use if you desire.
To remove the old mat, you'll need to do (obviously) what's necessary. It wasn't originally glued...

Re: Radius rods ball lube

Nope. In fact the "goo" will rot the rubber in the course of time.

Re: Identifying a Ford generator

Close Gary, very close.
1939 is "T". !940 is "U".

Re: Oil filter

Rick, I'm with Corvette8n in that I prefer 20w/50. You are certain to get a lot of differing opinions on this.

I'd suggest you simply change the oil a bit more often than "normal" and forget...

Re: Oil filter

The filter (proper) looks like this although your '41 had different lines plumbed than the '40.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Here's why I prefer to paint the cars in color... I really enjoy the contrast, especially beneath the car.

Re: Identifying a Ford generator

No part number on the body. However, there's a code stamped in the body. that code will tell you what year and month the body was manufactured.
From the photo you'd posted, that's a late '40 pulley...

Re: 30 amp generator vs 55 amp

The "big" genny for '40 fit perfectly as per the photos I have of police vehicles so equipped back then. I can't speak for other years.

Re: Correct location and Colour of V8 Badge on 1934 Fords

Yep, she's a sweetie indeed. I did rebuild the driveline from one end to the other to make this car very roadworthy. Amazingly, when I got this car, the tires (tubes) held air. When I removed the...

Re: Correct location and Colour of V8 Badge on 1934 Fords

Mercman, The photo I've attached is the 34 coupe I'd found a few years back. It had been sitting in one spot since 1949.
I am fairly confident the grille and (blue) emblem were authentic to the car.

Re: 1939/1940 Horn Suppliers

Thanks Dave. That sheds the most proverbial light on these yet. I don't recall seeing them listed as a supplier in 40. However, my memory is not what it once was. I think...

Re: 30 amp generator vs 55 amp

I'm with Ross on this one. There was a "heavy duty" generator offered in 1940. It was primarily for police cars with a radio, extra lights, etc.

I have searched for one of those for decades but...

Re: 1939/1940 Horn Suppliers

Gary, In all my days, I've never seen a set from Schwartze.
Makes me wonder if they were a replacement.
I've not seen anything that stated they were a supplier to Ford in 1940.
I can't speak to...

Re: Changed The Weight Of My Oil

Please stop using STP. It will cause more harm than good. Consider it "snake oil".

I'd personally rebuilt NUMEROUS engines in the past decades. It was always easy to tell what clients used STP by...
