    Intake + Exhaust manifold removal

    There is one nut on the underside in the middle that must be removed from underneath . There have been photos posted of all of the fasteners , perhaps you can find the photos with a forum search .

    The distributor cam lube ? I couldn't find it locally so I ordered it from Macs Ford Parts 877-230-9666 , they sell parts for the old Fords . You might find it at a tractor parts supply company . How much to put on ? Hard to say , you don't want it to splash around onto the points yet enough to do the job .

    And here I was thinking that I should have done more to help you by offering some of my NOS stash ! I wonder if anyone else has had this problem with the phenolic failing , other than normal wear ? And were the points Auto-Lite ? And did you use the proper distributor cam lubricant ?

    1940 Radiator aftermarket adapted?

    Ed , The one that I used in my truck was not an exact fit at all , there was a lot of fitting and modification and I will not recommend it to others . At the time there was not an economical model available and today I would buy one of those on ebay that bolt right in , even though they are still a little high in price . The aluminum radiators sure cool nicely though .

    1940 Radiator aftermarket adapted?

    You can run the pressurized aluminum radiator with a non-pressure cap , that is what I am doing with my truck and it runs at 160 degrees .

    Some of the cylinder head studs and some of the water pump studs also go into the water jacket .

    Dome Light Bulb Change

    If your lens is like mine , just grab the lens and bezel and pull straight off .

    Oiling the cam in the distributor

    For the grease for the outside of the cam where the points ride ; Sold by MACS Auto Parts they sell products for the old Fords .

    Dome light

    It should not fit flush with the headliner , it must be spaced down a little bit so that the bezel and lens has enough room to snap in place . The original had flat leather washers used around the screws as spacers , perhaps 1/8 thick or less . Probably some flat faucet washers would work here , or just cut your own washers with a Harbor Freight hole punch set .

    Mystery ignition

    ... " of course it's like $250 for a new Switch " ... I don't know if your 47 is a Plymouth or a Dodge , but I see switches on ebay for 1947 Plymouth starting at $14... $30 .
