Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,


You did exactly what I do to remove the glass from the lower channel, namely a straight length of wood and gentle tapping on the wood alternating sides. There is a special rubber seal...

Re: "Strainer", '40 Coupe Body part?

Strainer is the correct automotive term for the braces, reinforcements, etc., such as those discussed herein. It remains so in current auto industry parlance.

Re: 1932 Roadster - Rubber Goods

Originally, '32 cabriolets, coupes, and roadsters were not equipped with rubber deck/rumble lid seals. Those came into use with the '33 models. The subject seals could be used on your car if you...

Re: 90th Birthday coming up

Lawrie,

No, all '32 V8s had left side exhaust manifolds that were the mirror image of the right side manifold. When the dipstick was moved to the oil pan on the left side it was positioned...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,

Judging from your latest batch of photos, the driver's door glass has been replaced along the way with laminated safety glass. If it were still plate glass, it would have fallen apart by...

Re: 90th Birthday coming up

The early oil pans for blocks with the dipstick in the block on the right side are quite scarce, more so than the so-called flange-block engines themselves.

Re: 32 a400

Sheldon,


The data in the DeAngelis/Francis book is U.S. production only. Worldwide, 154 of the 1,296 convertible sedans produced were powered by Model B four-cylinder engines.

Re: 90th Birthday coming up

Tom,


More likely it would have ended up being a complete vehicle in early May given that its engine was not produced until very late in April, 1932.

Re: 32 a400

It would be an accurate claim if the wording included "passenger car", however, where the 845 figure comes from, who knows? According to Ford's records, there were 1,296 '32 convertible sedans...

Re: Knowing left from right??

Leadfoot4U,


Armed with that catalog, you now know more than Bratton's as to the applicability of their reproduction levers. In fairness, that they are primarily sellers of Model A parts...

Re: Knowing left from right??

'35-'36 rear brake operating levers are, unfortunately in this case, not interchangeable with the '32-'34 versions.

Re: Body / Frame welting...

That it has. "Search this forum" for "32 body to frame webbing" for entry following initial question.. Add to it separate 1/8" thick fabric- reinforced rubber pads for the fuel tank.

Re: 32 a400

This one has been for sale on various sites, including ebay, for nearly a year. I guess the seller missed the bubble.

Re: 32 a400

Quite the contrary as some very early '33s have/had what we would normally describe as '32 V8 blocks and then there are the brief variants that have provisions in their casting for both the '32 and...

Re: Knowing left from right??

Once again, with respect, your black painted lever in your two photos is not either a B-2235 or B-2236 brake lever. As stated above, those two levers do not have a 90 degree bend in the arm at the...

Re: Knowing left from right??

With respect, what are shown in your photos are not parts original to the rear brakes of a 1934 Ford. The rear arms or levers were B-2235 and B-2236 on '32-'34 passenger car and commercial chassis...

Re: short U-bolts

For what it is worth, Ford stopped using true castle nuts as a running change fairly early in the 1933 model year (in U.S. production) shifting to the less expensive slotted hex nuts from there...

Re: short U-bolts

Mike,


Bob C's question is a fair one as the obvious answer is that without the lock washers, likely the cotter pins would fit into the bolt shank holes. Originally, Ford did not use both lock...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

A taupe-colored floor mat (BB-76230) was standard equipment originally. I don't think that it was ever reproduced, but the B-76230 mat for the closed cab on commercial chassis was reproduced (at...
