Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Mine was beyond the 4" dimension I am pretty sure.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Al, Folks,
Yikes, glad those guys were not badly injured! Your thoughts on the activation of the dump bed at a car show are right on the money! I was thinking the same things. If I was to raise it...

Re: 1932 BB Dump

Nate,
Forgot to ask are you putting in new valves/ lifters? If you go with adjustable lifters, it is advised to lower the casting towers for the lifters. That will allow easier adjustment of the...
