Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

The J B weld epoxy will work fine for sealing up the small fissures between the braze and the cast iron for the water jackets. It is used by many people on some high performance engines that have...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

The preheating to 900 degrees F is the required temp before brazing or more cracks will occur either immediately or later on due to the thermal stresses. The cooling down must be as slow as...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

You will get get all kind of opinions on this. However the true real story is you can not successfully weld cast iron with electric welding, no matter what rod you use. The localized small area from...

Re: Cab and Bed mounting wood

The cab and bed mounting wood is certainly visible. The cab mounting wood is tricky to make with the finger joints and the turned angles as it follows the frame. Made in hardwood correctly would be...

Re: 21 Stud block question

They are core plugs. Used solely for the purpose of supporting the cores in the sand casting process. Once cast and the sand cleared, the holes are plugged. Threaded fitting were used in the 19th...

Re: 1933 car fuel sender repairable?

I am going out on a limb here, but the access plate/cover was provided to get to the fittings (airline and fuel line ) on the sender. The fittings are several inches away (forward) from the sender...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Fix the one you have because you know what you have and it is a typical job to sleeve a cylinder. Besides you are going to make it perfect (inside ) anyway. Babbiting B engines are done every day....

Re: The case for sacrificial anodes in your cooling system

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

No bling is the order of the day. Good goal. Another fun fact is that "lowly looking "fuel pump ,although not '32 specific, is another high value item (really). Don't get talked out of it by the guy...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

As David said, the brown starter knob is original and another high value item. Reproductions are junk. For nuts, bolts and fasteners in general, call Micheal at Thirdgen in Tenn. He has ALL of the...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Totally agree, Tubman. It take almost nothing to start a perfectly (here is that term again) tuned flathead, B or V8. I liked the optima for the reason of letting the cars sit for a long period of...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Bob C is correct here. Mac's is a good catalog for armchair reading. Don't get taken in by "easy- just order it from the catalogitis". For this truck you want NOS only or contact the people noted...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

A set of NOS seat springs would be great but probably not going to happen. Snyder's is the go-to for springs. Their new ones will fit and work just fine. Old spring sets are broken and worn out and...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

My comment about "new-old" seat cover would be to find some period correct for the truck material and use that IF you cannot find old correct material that is somewhat worn but not worn out. I agree...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Just my 4 cents; first two cent thought is to take the radiator cap and put it in the vault until you can keep an eye on it. Don't let it out of your sight.
second two cents would be to make it...

Re: 32 Ford emergency brake lever

If you have the correct sector part, you can look for an original Model A handbrake assembly and have the handle and button replated, (butler finish of course). The repo's just don't look right next...
