  1. Shop manual calls for a valve clearance of .011 to .013 hot. What clearance should I use cold? Also is there any easy way to set the valves? I feel like I need three pairs of infant hands to set them.
  2. Has anyone fit an alternative gas tank to a 1940 series 26 4dr sedan. I have had absolutely no luck in finding an original Pontiac tank and my original was rusted beyond repair. Any info would be appreciated. One person suggested a 68 Camaro tank that he fit in his Pontiac, but my spare tire well is in the way for that one to fit.
  3. The finish on my 1940 bumpers does not look like chrome. Anyone know what the finish is? Could it be nickel?
  4. What years fit the 49?
  5. My 40 Pontiac running board rubber is shot. Anybody with a good idea what to use to repace them? Also outer edge trim missing. Any ideas there?
  6. windshield wipers wanted

    I bought a set from chevoftheforties only to find out they have different mounting. I was very surprised GM would use two different types of windshield wipers, but both 8 1/4 inches. The Chevy type are common on the internet, not the Pontiac.
  7. Who sells 8 1/4" windshield wiper replacement blades to fit a 1940 Pontiac.
  8. I have one from a 6 cyl some surface rust, some original GM paint. Accumulation of old engine oil on the inside. I will be glad to trade for a 1940 series 25 or 26 gas tank. Just kidding. Email me at arrallen@att.net for further info.
  9. wanted 39/40 pontiac fuel tank

    Story of my life, that is for the Pontiac based on the Oldsmobile chassis, but thanks for the lead. One never knows when the next one will be the right one.
  10. wanted 39/40 pontiac fuel tank

    Thanks, I'll give it a try.
  11. wanted 39/40 pontiac fuel tank

    There is one in Smoke Signals and I got all excited only to find out it is for the Torpedo. Yes, went through Hemmings, eBay, and listed several times on Antique Auto Club site. Took mine to a tank rebuilder only to be told it it too shot to rebuid. I have been looking for several years now. A 67 Camaro tank is close, but requires a lot of modification, That may be my only option.
  12. Still looking for a 1939 or 1940 Pontiac gas tank from a series 25 or 26. Filler tube is on the drivers side of the car.
  13. want info on hubcap (pictured)

    Thanks for the info. Hubcaps.org showed me they are worth a lot more than I thought.
  14. Can anyone identify the attached picture hub cap model and year. I have had these for years.
  15. According to my interchange manual the 39 and 40 gas tank for the series 26 and 28 models were the same. It has the filler neck on the drivers side and the original part number was 501945. looking for one in good shape.
