I've got an old Stewart Warner electric pump that I plan to use.
Bought a broken adapter for forty bucks and called in reinforcements to fix it.
Put a call into Wilcap and boom, progress.
Hope to make progress getting the Flathead out this weekend.
I like it!
How to increase the size of your one car garage.
looking good! I have a 40 waiting on me!!!
Out with the old.
In with the old... but not quite as old.
Looking good man!
Sent from my iPhone using H.A.M.B.
So what did you buy from Wilcap?
I'll guess the new clutch.
Looking good Gonzo
He got the clutch. I bought the same one for my 39, super nice, highly recommend them.
Wilcap sells a kit that includes the clutch disk, pressure plate, flywheel, hardware and pilot bushing adapter (I already had the transmission adapter). You can piece these parts together using information online but for the same kind of money he’ll sell you everything you need in one shot. I’ve used his parts in the past and his service and expertise are top notch.
Great looking 40’, good lookin Stance’. What’s not to like about it. Good luck with it.
Ohh boy! I too own a 32 and my pops has a 40 delux sedan. His is a stock car with a dropped axle and a 350 mated to the stock trans. I've been working on him to sell it to me since he has three other hot rods he can drive. My 32 is a sedan but I would love to have a forty delux with a trunk so We could travel outa town and not have the daughter have to share the back seat with luggage.
Man that is a nice car, do you still have the Nailhead powered one?
Beautiful sedan John! Maybe you'll sell me that flathead....
No that one left a couple years ago.
The flattie is already gone, sorry.
No prob. Sometimes the flathead market moves faster than the black market kidney market.
Anyone know a transport guy who could bring this car to wisconsin?
I bought my 1940 Tudor in 1965 off a Chevrolet Used Car Lot for $50.00. I drove it as purchased, restored it in 1972, stored it in 1986 when the flathead seized up, ignored it for 28 years, got it out in 2013, and completely redid it as the hotrod I always intended it to be. It now has 345 hp 350 cid Chevy, THM 350 trans, 9" Ford rear end, white rolls and pleats, A/C and retains the classic look.
Take your time, spend the bucks, and do it right.
Didnt take long to get it on the road.
