Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Ah, without a muffler the exhaust noise about overwhelms one's ears, rough or smooth running.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,

What's that rattling sound, the power takeoff gears?

Obviously what muffler is used has a lot to do with how much noise can be expected, but with a stock...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,


You asked earlier if there was a bigger '32 truck than yours; yes, the sibling to yours had a 157" wheelbase. The cabs and everything forward of the cabs were the same for both wheelbase...

Re: Model B Flywheel Housing Alignment

Right, even though the subject components have operated successfully together for going on 90 years. Perhaps if the subject parts have to be replaced for one reason or another, okay, but Ford's...

Re: Model B Flywheel Housing Alignment

I've not found a need on the several that I've restored nor is there any reference to such a need in all the Ford '32 service information that I've encountered over the years, but I'm sure that it...

Re: Shock arms

With respect, Model A shocks were mounted on the outside of the frame so there was no danger of a rear straight arm hitting the frame as the arms are attached with the ball ends facing outward, not...

Re: How many on the Barn were there?

Oops, I misread the date on the first photo and the enlarged photo on second look tells me it was '73 and not '78 and so I could not have attended as I was on assignment with Ford in South America...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Likely, yes, especially wear in the slots and mating tongues from the distributor down to the drive gear. Wear would tend to retard the spark.

Re: Universal retaining washer

The earlier version of the subject washer has no tab on it and I agree that in addition to the Belleville washer, a split lock washer was used as well.

Re: How many on the Barn were there?

I'm one of the "wouldn't dream of converting" crowd, however small it may be. My first '32 roadster (a long time ago) was a deluxe and it had been converted to having a trunk. When I restored it,...

Re: Bent Horn-Light Rod

It has been a while since I picked up a bow, but I'm pretty sure that arrow shafts are solid, not tubular like the light switch rod, which makes straightening it a different proposition.

Re: Early and late '32

Krylon32,

If you are referring to the book, you can't buy one or the other (except perhaps used) as they come as a pair. It was broken down into two volumes given its length as it would be...
