Re: Steering binding on '46

Sounds like a worn worm. The worm tends to wear in the center. If he attempted to adjust the lash in the center, it would then make the ends too tight. Replace the worm with a new one.

Re: Parts suppliers during the virus

I am backlogged on steering box rebuilds at an all time high. To make things worse, the common Timken steering box bearings (5BC) are back ordered right now with no ETA. Might have to go to another...

Re: Split rim, wide 5?

I have one of the split rim wide 5 wheels as well. They are not 39-41 3/4-ton, as those are 16x5 and 16x5.5 standard drop center rims. Those wheels do look like they used the 3/4-ton center.

Re: Lathe with 3 Ford transmissions in Iowa

That's one of the cleanest transmission conversions that I've seen on a machine tool. Looks like it belonged there.

Back to the lathe with 3 transmissions. Are those large brake drums that they...

Re: Flatheads breaking off engine stands and falling.

I am pretty sure the repair done in that article was on a race engine that had a clutch explosion. Cooks Machine did those repairs on engines that had extensive port work done, so it was worth the...

Re: Installing a 32' Roadster Body

A related question. Does the frame welt go front to back all the way on the frame, under the firewall feet, front fenders and gas tank, or just under the body itself.

Re: Symptoms of worn out sector shaft?

Glad to hear you sorted this one out. The mounting bracket didn't come to mind, but makes perfect sense now.

Re: 1936 Steering Box Replacement

If you use a 37-39 box with original hardware intact, the 36 light switch will clip right in. No adapting required.

Re: Risk of using old (over 10 years) tires

Re: 48 to 52 f1 steering box

No, that is not the case here. 37-48 passenger car steering box internals are the same as 48-52 pickup internals when they are both either LHD or RHD.

LHD sectors have the roller canted to the...

Re: 48 to 52 f1 steering box

Most early Ford parts suppliers have the RHD worms. All other rebuild parts are the same as LHD, granted your sector shaft is rebuildable. And the comment above is correct, in that 37-48 Ford car...
