Re: Rear Engine Mount?

Yep, that's the bottom of the old mount that had separated when the rubber rotted away.

Re: Torque Tube to Differential Seal

Since the axle is out, I would take the turtle off along with the little snap ring at the front and pull the tube. That way you could inspect the front roller bearing and sleeve and replace if...

Re: '35 Ford Coupe tail light lamp

If I remember right; many stock sockets had even depth slots and the bulbs had even nubs and had "top" printed on the base. Think we even had 12v bulbs with even nubs in an old box at the truck shop.

Re: 45 Truck parking brake problems

Sorry about the misdirection; I totally overlooked that those open drive banjo truck rears had bolt on E-brake cables.

Re: 45 Truck parking brake problems

Looking at your latest picture; part of the cable tube is missing. The spring stop clip bears against the tube so that is probably why the arms are not held back to the rear when released.

Looking...

Re: 45 Truck parking brake problems

^^^^^ I was thinking the same thing, if the lever is located so far forward at rest it would unlikely run out of travel before moving the shoes very far.

The book I have shows them arranged like...

Re: 1935 NORS brake drums

The '32-'34 spindle gives it away.

It's not a '32 axle; it's the later "skinny" axle used up until '36.

I just thought it funny after walking by it all the time I never noticed that it had...

Re: 49 F1 Brake issue

I start out by putting the adjuster in properly. Sometimes it is fun learning about unfamiliar stuff.

Re: 49 F1 Brake issue

F-1 and F-100 backing plates are clocked to the rear on the spindles to permit the brake hose to clear the top kingpin boss on the spindles.

Re: Front brake drum won't come off 49 F1

Re: What cool accessories/add-ons are out there

Used to be lots of neat stuff to personalize your car; father-in-law bought this one and flipped it soon in olden times.

Re: 1935 NORS brake drums

'35 uses a normal inner seal pressed into the hub; while '32-'34 uses a steel ring slinger pressed onto the spindle like a Model A.

Re: 1935 NORS brake drums

From my experience '35 front and rear drums are totally different from each other and from any other Ford drum.

The rear hub, if removed from the drum may look like '40-'41; but is different.

Re: Source for 47 lower front shock studs??

Looks like your front end is out in the picture; why not get a '48 axle with the hole for a shock stud; not like they are rare or in high demand.

The '48 frame mounts are also set for a shock...

Re: Ford tie rod end boots

The rubber ring should be "squished" tensioning the cupped washer against the tie rod end.

Re: 1950 Ford Cpe brakes

A dual master cylinder won't improve your brakes; it may make it safer in case of failure; but only if installed correctly. I would definitely test it when completed.

Re: 35 Deinstall / Install hydraulic brake conversion

I have seen that cross shaft used as part of the E brake in conversions; don't know if Richard's kit done that way; tho.

Re: 35 Deinstall / Install hydraulic brake conversion

Sounds like a plan; although you don't mention the E brake; maybe that is part of the V8 Garage stuff.
