Re: 46 Ford 1.5 ton

Mine leaked about half a pint after I lowered the bed. Had some air bubbles also. Iím wondering if I overfilled the cylinder.

Re: 46 Ford 1.5 ton

No the piston doesnít leak when the bed is raised which I thought was odd. I looked at a Gar Wood brochure that has a cutaway pic of my cylinder. It shows a substantial seal on the end of the piston...

Re: GB Sisson

He has been MIA over on FTE also. His profile says he was active here today and June 8 over on FTE. Hopefully just not much going on around his place and he is doing ok.

Re: 46 Ford 1.5 ton

Thanks guys! I think the 8.25x20's in the rear and the 7.50x20's front give the truck a nice stance.
Mark, are the dump bodies you have made by Gar Wood and do you have the hydraulic cylinders?...

Finally finished the dump bed and got it installed on the truck. I'm really pleased with the way the bed looks on the truck and it makes it ride a little better. Now for some mud flaps and...

Re: My New Ford Barn Find!

Really nice work! I'm partial to the big trucks and being that yours is an M/H makes it that much better. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Re: My New Ford Barn Find!

And it was in PA where it must have had at least the occasional salt bath in the winter. Really incredible find!

Re: Craftsman tools being sold

The Sears nearest to me closed last summer and the next closest store is closing at the end of March. Macy's is also closing stores in the area and J.C. Penney is gasping for air. I guess Amazon is...

Re: Insurance

Grundy covered my truck while in the project stage. Sent them some pics and told them how much I had in it. Reasonable rates too.

Re: Where ty buy clips....?

I can share my observations of having recently installed a window channel kit in my truck. For me it was a slow and tedious job. The glass-run felt was easy to install but the anti-rattle strips...
