Re: Should I be concerned?

Great! As someone said, no way you could build it for that and seems fair for all that was done to it. Drive it and enjoy it.

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

I'm with you on this, Tony. Those numbers seem really optimistic. There is book written by George Nichols (I believe) and he uses a similar dyno program. Every cam he put into the program had...

Re: Oversized Brake Drums

So true. I have a few that are so badly grooved, there must not have been any lining material left and the rivets there doing the stopping.

I was just thinking to myself the other day, why in...

Re: Oversized Brake Drums

If you have an opportunity, take a look at a '40 drum that has been turned past .060. I have some that, according to my drum mic, are .090, .100, one is even .120. These came off old brakes...

Re: Should I be concerned?

Without question it is a nice looking truck. While I agree with you that one would be hard pressed to build it for $30K, I don't share your thoughts on it only being $30K and what's the big deal. ...

Re: Should I be concerned?

I think you are on the right track. Neat truck, looks good, sounds like it runs well, but needs to be inspected in person to verify or confirm what the seller is telling.

'40/'41 trucks are...

Re: Should I be concerned?

Does he have the paperwork/receipt from H&H. For being driven only 200-300 miles in the past 7 years, the motor looks like it has some miles on it.

Re: Should I be concerned?

More than mildly IMHO. Paint is a big cost and that color choice is 100% street rod. 9" with a T-5, totally street rod.

Again, not that its a bad thing, but I wouldn't call this truck a hot...

Re: Use of a MIG welder for other purposes?

The more I think about this, for the small amount of rivets we are talking about, get a tote tank set up and use Oxy-Acetylene and do it right. Those "B" tanks should last long enough to do this...

Re: Should I be concerned?

Can you give us a ball park what he's asking? This is an unique truck.

Paint is street rod, running gear is a mix of hot rod and street rod. It's interesting mix of the two. No longer a...

Re: Should I be concerned?

Agreed, but seeing the money the guy put into it, I am curious as to why someone wouldn't fix it. Motor cost was around $6-$8K depending what is done to it. That's all.

By pictures, looks...

Re: Should I be concerned?

Agreed. That's just a the way the hose is going to be do to the outlet location and rad location.

The lower part (where it attaches to the head) should have been made shorter to prevent that. ...

Re: Use of a MIG welder for other purposes?

I’ve read a few times that the rivets should be annealed first before setting them. The article suggested placing them in a fire wrapped up in tin foil.

Re: Any shaky can preference on small parts??

Could. I've done it a few times in NJ when it was really humid and didn't have the orange peel like you are showing.

I also made an indoor spray booth for small parts.

Re: Any shaky can preference on small parts??

Don't give up. I'll take some picts of some parts I just did. They came out great.

I've found if you can either heat them with a heat lamp or place them and the spray can out in the sun, helps...
