An easier solution might be to bend the short linkage rod...

Re: 1928 Phaeton windshield gasket

As Mike mentioned, if it is only the bottom flap gasket it runs in a channel along the outside bottom of the frame. A little Vaseline will help guide it all the way. Let the whole thing sit in the...

Re: 34 Stock fuel line routing

I believe there is a book about the early pickups and there is photo of a 34 or 35 chassis and you can make out the fuel line.

Re: 28, 29 vs 30,31 What do you like any why?

The 28's set the bar. I love how the front fenders follow the top curve of the wheels and the radiator shell is the little brother of the affluent Lincoln.

Re: 1935 Hydrostatic Sending Unit

In my '33 I mounted a new tank and am using the sending unit as seen in Post #7 above but with a 1949 Ford fuel gauge to utilize the 2" dash opening. It fits without looking too far off from that era.
