I have parts for both drivers and passenger doors. I am selling all part as a package.

    1940 Pontiac parts

    I had to order fittings from O'reilly auto parts. The reason I had to order it is because using today's pump gas with all of the alcohol added the old ones leak if you can find them. The ones I ordered are 'Edelman' brand. I don't know that I got the actual piece your are looking for but look that company I'm pretty sure they have 90 degree fittings. I ordered 'double flair' fittings!

    1940 Pontiac parts

    On a '40 Pontiac the fuel pump mounts to the block on the passenger side close front of the Pontiac straight 8. The way those Torpedo C-bodied cars are put together the way the inner fender wells are contoured so a fuel pump doesn't fit mounted in the traditional way. Therefore Pontiac came up with a bracket that mounts between the block and the pump. The bracket basically houses the arm that rides on the cam in the engine on one end and the arm of the pump on the other end . However that bracket has a 90 degree turn like "L" so the pump mounts to the bracket and it's snugged up to the block a few inches back. This is a bracket is for 1940 Torpedo's only.

    1940 Pontiac parts

    In regards to the parts listed above - The fuel pump adapter is no longer available. However I do have a pair of exterior door handles and exterior key lock cylinder chrome appliques with the sliding covers. Though the key lock cylinder chrome appliques came off that 1940 Pontiac they would most likely work on a variety GM cars from various years.

    1940 Pontiac parts

    The parts were from a wrecked 2 door coupe. What parts are you looking for?
  8. I have numerous parts available from a 1940 Pontiac Torpedo {model 29) I will list a few of them - reply if interested. Intake & exhaust manifolds from a Pontiac straight 8 motor Two headlight buckets (probably universal among most 1940 GM cars) Extremely rare fuel pump adapter for 1940 Torpedos Fuel pump (applicable to most Pontiac straight 8's) Water neck/thermostat housing (applicable to most Pontiac straight 8's) Engine head of a '40 Pontiac straight 8 motor Rear seat bottom frame (from a model 29 - GM C body) rear seat back frame (from a model 29 - GM C body) two door latch mechanisms (applicable to most GM cars in those years) Chris
  9. I have a '40 Pontiac straight 8 and I pulled the manifolds off and now it's time to re-install them. I have read a lot of good information on the Buick straight 8's but I have a Pontiac! What I see on the manifold flanges(intake and exhaust) are flat circular areas on the manifolds at the stud mount area approximately an inch wide where a washer seats and the stud goes through. When I took it apart there were flat, thick and inch wide washers there. From my research from the Buick forums there are Bellville washers(aka: cup washers, spring washers) to be used at some point. They are used to allow the manifold to move due to heat expansion. My first question is are those thick flat washers used first and then the Bellville and then the nut? Second question is what is the torque spec for the manifolds and the sequence? By my research the torque spec would be around 20 to 25 ft/lbs. Third question is I have the manifold gaskets and is there a sealer or lubricant to go on the gasket? I'm guessing due to the extreme heat and the expanding manifold a sealer would NOT work very well. I like the solution of graphite powder and 50w oil mixture that one of the Buick guys use. My fourth question is if those Bellville washers are used, and I am assuming they are, should I be putting them on all studs?

    original engine colour

    I have a '40 Pontiac and bought the appropriate color from Hirsch. But I don't have solid evidence that the Hirsch specified color is correct for my '40 because I saw some light blue/aqua on the block. But I must say that the paint from Hirsch paint does look nice, easy to work with and the rattle cans which I bought spray consistently. I have seen the results of the paint applied by brush and have been impressed. For engine blocks painted in the car one almost has to brush it on.
