Re: 32 spindle bolts

Pete,


Please look at any period chassis parts catalog and you'll note from the illustrations the order of assembly. Because the spindle bolt is held in place by a tapered locking bolt through...

Re: 32 spindle bolts

Pete,

With respect, on '32-'34 passenger car and commercial vehicles the spindle bearing is above the axle beneath the head of the spindle bolt (B-3115/6) which bears the weight of the front axle,...

Re: 1932 Ford Panel Truck

I believe that Don is correct except that in a '32 with the small gas tank, the passenger side seat would be the same as that in his photos, but not the driver's side seat as that was attached to the...

Re: Q: 34 Ford 3W which REAR window regulator

Not even close to being the same, neither the regulator nor the glass channel. They're common with those components in a five-window coupe, but that's it. The rear window regulator has but a single...

Re: 1932 frame horn covers

I believe that they were a short-lived early version given the apparent scarcity of surviving examples, although they have shown up on both U.S. and European '32s. My favorite, which I believe to be...

Re: 1932 frame horn covers

Not surprisingly, the more I look at the photos courtesy of Uncle Buck, the more that I see that does not ring true. Note the placement of the two holes for the bumper bracket bolts which is unlike...

Re: 1932 frame horn covers

Those in the ebay listing in #8 above appear to be as advertised, namely originals, and I agree that they were a bargain.

Re: 1932 frame horn covers

If so, those are not one of the six known versions of the originals. i.e. they are reproductions as none of the six had oval holes where the cover attached to the rear fender. Originals have only...

Re: 1932 frame horn covers

This sounds like a straightforward question that should have a straightforward answer, but '32 frame horn covers are anything but straightforward as there are six distinctly different versions of the...

Re: 1932 Ford Clutch Adjustment

The original starting point is with the pedal at rest against the rubber bumper on the underside of the lower steel #1 floorboard plate as Terry indicates.

Smile Re: 33-34 Clutch Release Arm Question

Re: 33-34 Clutch Release Arm Question

Unfortunately, that informative lineup of clutch release arms in the photo is missing two, namely BB-7511 which conforms to 18-7511, except it is curved to achieve the offset, not kinked. The other...

Re: 1932 ford pickup GVWR.

Ford did not publish a GVWR for '32 commercial vehicles, but if they did it sure as hell would not have been 2,579 pounds for the pickup given that the Ford-published shipping weight (no coolant or...
