Re: Body Off Attempt

I would avoid concrete blocks. Napa sells good, lifetime stands.
A concrete block can kill you.

Re: Nice Gasoline Filter

Werner, does the filter have a direction of flow? Seems to me it should be 180 degrees switched so the tapered end would discharge into the carburetor?
Maybe it doesn't matter.

Re: Restoring the Carburetor Inlet Filter Screen

One tool I made, or picked up is a modified 16 Penney nail ground to a almost blunt end with a partial bend to knock the brass Ferrell back toward the inlet from the float valve end.
Might be useful.

Re: Radiator emblem

It should be pressed in. A broom handle will fit. Support the face of the radiator shell and avoid scratches and dents to the shell in the removal process. Epoxy the emblem back in place after...

Re: Do you look at the parts wanted forum?

I have used both the parts wanted and the parts for sale. I respond to every enquiry. My impression is a phone call works the best for me.

Re: Installation of Rebuilt Original Ignition Switch

I don't see how you will be able to install the pop out with out removing the distributor, and I would drain down the antifreeze first. The cable should only be turned in enough to contact the lower...

Re: Installation of Rebuilt Original Ignition Switch

Remove and replace the pop out can be deceptively simple to do.

Re: Cab mounting blocks

Les andrew's red manual covers that. Sounds like you may have recovered the original body bolts if the blocks were intact.

Re: Throttle shaft brass plug for zenith carbs

Necessary is a personal call, since it is on the engine side leaving it alone is an alternative.
Closest similar plug is 1/32 smaller. So now I will see if I can make it work.

Re: Throttle shaft brass plug for zenith carbs

Still looking. Talked with Sacramento vintage, and probably mislead them into thinking part number 85-392 was correct for the 29-31 zenith throttle shaft plug.
The dimension for 85-392 is .47...

No lathe here, but I like the shell casing idea, or the tubing.

Re: Throttle shaft brass plug for zenith carbs

Sacramento vintage describes the part as: throttle shaft end plug.
I saw it listed in a United Kingdom supplier online catalog.
