Re: Floor shift in 53 f-100

Yes, that would be a truck. I've never seen a 3-2-2 setup like you have. I don't quite understand the need for the two speed differential. I'm sure it makes for interesting shifts.

Re: Floor shift in 53 f-100

Being a truck driver when I was young, I hauled logs and later propane, to me a truck has to have at least one stick, sometimes more, coming out of the floor for the transmission/transmissions to be...

Re: Lathe with 3 Ford transmissions in Iowa

Now that's a lathe! It looks like it has a shotgun carriage. So far I've not needed one that big.

Re: 1946/47 pick up

Re: Antique Insurance a little off Topic

I started with J C Taylor via my Farmers agent. Collision insurance only was about $400.00. I called Hagerty and my yearly cost dropped considerably. I also have AAA so I have roadside...

Re: Lathe with 3 Ford transmissions in Iowa

I've run several lathes and a radial drill press that used transmissions to change speed but that one beats anything I've seen. I tried to post a picture of a 32"x 144" Lodge & Shipley that I've put...

Re: 650-16 or 700-16 tires for out 1946 project truck

IIRC 650 x 16 was the original size that came on them when new. Given the scarcity of tires just after WW-2 I don't think they offered many options. The 1945 models came with a spare wheel but no...

Re: Loose condenser bracket

I had continuous problems with condensers on my 59 AB until I moved the location up to the coil. Since moving it I've put perhaps 5000 miles on and not had a problem. Prior to moving to the coil I...

Re: Leaning to one side

Regarding the list. Many years ago I saw Andy Devine, the actor, at least I believe it has him, driving a Cadillac ? and was amazed at the very definite list to port of the car. You would think he...

Re: Speedometer needle

Be careful as the needle is aluminum and will bend/break quite easily. A clock repair person could pull and replace it quickly and safely.

Re: Block Pressure Test

Pressure testing can be carried too far. I was given the block that is in my pickup after a guy pressure tested it at 160 psi and blew a pea sized hole in the #5 intake valve pocket. I repaired it...

Re: Block Pressure Test

As I told my youngest son, a Marine Corps Cobra pilot, there is no bigger collection of parts that, when they are in motion, want to completely disassemble themselves, than on a helicopter. Unlike...

Re: I am hiding in my garage from my wife

Re: Dont do this !!!

I would be nice if your grandson was interested in stepping up and carrying on your business, with your guidance of course.

Hope you get your health issues resolved.

Re: Wrecked 34 phaeton

If it were hit by a train you would have to walk along the tracks and pick the car up in mostly very small pieces. I've seen the results of a number of car train arguments, the train wins every time.

Re: Need some bolts

Sometimes you have to improvise. I have used all thread and then used red loctite to hold a nut on for the head. The nut can also be welded or soldered on. Fastenal can most likely get you what you...

Re: car for sale sites

Common courtesy and common sense seem to be uncommon these days and so far we've been unable to teach or legislate either.

Re: Help ID'ing and Locating a '37 Big Truck Seal

I generally make gaskets when I need them. For that one I'd carefully remove the old one and trace it onto a new piece of gasket material and cut it out using scissors and gasket punches. Wouldn't...

Re: Before and After

So far this has been my one and probably only Ford project. Only took four years of working on it just about every day.

Re: rear signal lights.

I just installed two element sockets in the taillights and park lights on my 45 commercial, not difficult and it doesn't alter the look of the vehicle.
