Re: Just asking

I used panel adhesive on my '38 pickup to mount cab corners, lower door skins and some other small items. Been slamming the doors for 20 years and everything still looks like new. If you want to weld...

Just happened to come across this and thought you may find it interesting as it shows some of the vehicles and weapons Ford was building for the military.

Re: '37 Touring bus

It just makes me wonder about the quality of the "comprehensive restoration".

Re: A bomb hoist for the rear bumper

Gary, I'm loving the work bench, vise, hoist, bumper thing going on but what the heck is on the trailer in front of the truck?

Re: '37 Touring bus

As nice as the bus is I wonder why they didn't clean up the gauges a little?

Re: 59AB Distributor

I'm using the crab style cap on my 59AB distributor. I'm not concerned about originality as its in a '38. The crab cap is easier to wire and its thinner so there is more wiggle room, plus they just...

Re: Vintage Ford V8 Signs

I just finished making a couple of signs and I across this thread. One of my new signs looks very similar to this original. Was this shape/style a USA car dealership sign?

Re: 39 Pickup Cab Floor

The "Big" trucks had a floor mounted E brake, the 1/2T's brake lever is mounted under the dash. The trans covers are hard to come by as the were under the floor mat and subject to rust. I see that...

Re: Patina or Paint?

Yup, Its all about personal choice. Since I repainted my truck a different color I didn't want door signs but I really like them on the old patina trucks even if they were not original to the truck....

Re: Setting a 34 speedometer to 00000

The reset stem is located on the back side of the speedo. Kind of hard to get at.

Re: Patina or Paint?

I'd leave it but would add some kind of sign or graphics on the doors that have a matching patina.

Re: Generator and fan setup 59 AB

Its the stock 59A fan assembly that is the problem when used on a '34 car not the generator mounted fan in a car. Apparently the car radiators tip back so there's less room than the trucks.

Re: Setting a 34 speedometer to 00000

There are stick-on speedo numbers that can work well. You don't even have to remove the number wheels to change the recorded mileage. Just place them on so they read 000000. I made my own stick-on...

Re: Generator and fan setup 59 AB

The early stock generators mount the same. They have a tang that fits into a slot in the intake manifold. This is the same if its a fan mount gen or a 59A style mount.

Re: Wilson Welding backing plates

The rears of my BB Lincoln brakes use the 7564 and the 7563. I believe that the difference is the angle of the brake line inlet so the inlets face the same direction.

I saw that V-2 roadster. It was weird but interesting. I also saw a old British MG (?) roadster with a Ford 60hp flathead for power. The little flattie really fit that car nicely. Don't know why I...
