Re: What is this radio out of?

It could be a Philco made for something else. Does the box have mounting ears on it like a Ford radio?

Re: Which Shaft is Broken

You do not have to pull the rear end to replace a axle, just the ring gear side housing.

Re: Theft Prevention Ideas??

The battery cut off switch is a good way to go and a good thing to have for safety. I put them out of sight on the floor.

Re: Building a late 32 driveshaft

You do not need a center bearing on a 32. Reason they are on later models is the length of the TT. No machine work is required to use a adapter other than shortning the later solid DS.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Is that a wire or metal line across the top of your crossmember?

Re: Building a late 32 driveshaft

You can get a coupler adapter that has different splines going in and out and use the later solid driveshaft shortened. Search the peddlers for drive shaft adapter.

Re: front fender well photo request.

Unless you are very small, you will be disappointed because it will be very hard to get in and out.

Re: what can I use?

Model T's did not have 4 wh drum brakes, they had a transmission brake and a parking brake in the rear drums. It sounds like you have a mixture of parts not Model T.

Re: Letís talk about V8 flathead head gasket

I use steel with copper coat and they work fine and if you wanted to use them over again they would work.

Re: Letís talk about V8 flathead head gasket

metal gaskets are the best and most trouble free. Composite crap will stick to the head and block and make a big mess and maybe need a stick of dynamite to get the head off.

Re: Finally had it with the gas tank.

A good acid washing and coating with a premium sealer will work well.

Re: Cylinder head replacing questions.

I sure agree with Brent on this and would never use a composition gasket on anything. The metal clad, copper or steel are much better and should be coated on both sides with copper coat.

Re: Heavy 39/40 parts on HAMB

Not total junk, those housings have lots of uses and the transmission stuff at the least would be cases and small hardware and I believe I saw some exh manifolds in the pile.
