Re: Buried Treasure - 1934 Ford Coupe Ute

That's a cool find. Hopefully they can salvage something useful from it.

Re: 41 pickup tech question.

Thanks Mike, I had you in mind when I asked the question. I couldn't find the second one, but did find the assembly from my other truck and that had one on each side, plus the correct hardware...

Re: 1932 serial number starts with D5

If it is an original frame, stamped by Henry's men, the numbers will be of a distinctive type face. (font).

A pic of the frame and the numbers would help. Just cover over the last few digits if...

Re: 41 pickup tech question.

I found a previous post on the same subject and it does look like there should be two.
bob drake posted a link to an info sheet and that shows two. (For a car at least).

I'd better have a scout...

41 pickup tech question.

Probably getting up there as far as geekiness goes, but I just pulled my cowl vent, including the hinge. The hinge has shouldered bolts. I have only found one wavy washer to use in this location,...

Re: Alternator to generator conversion

It depends on how much of the original wiring was changed when the alternator was fitted.
the generator needs an appropriate regulator. I use the 30/35A types that are for Fords from about 1960 or...

Re: Hubcap restoration

If the drill press has a depth stop that could be set to avoid marring the stainless.

Re: FH Valve Springs

I'm not sure what you are referring to either. Is that a practice on some other motor? There is no oil in the lifter, so you can't feed the cam lobe from it. It all gets lubed from oil splashed from...

Re: 40/41 pickup windshield install. What to expect?

Re: 40/41 pickup windshield install. What to expect?

Well, Mike, It didn't go quite as easy as you said, but I got there in the end. The rubbers I had were old (but unused) and had lost their plasticity. The wire just kept splitting the lip. Luckily I...

Re: 1932 ford frame differences

The only other thing I can think of is a very small number of frames without the K member legs.

But the vast majority of frames are run of the mill, swaged rails, k members fully equipped,...

40/41 pickup windshield install. What to expect?

Hi guys. I just had a look to see if anyone has put a video up on youtube showing a windshield glass install in a 40/41 pickup or 40 closed car. I can't see anything, so I'm going to be doing mine...

Re: Tire size 1937 ford pickup

I love my 6.50s on my 41. They're older cross ply (bias ply) that are in good condition.

Re: 1932 ford frame differences

The rear crossmembers were changed to accommodate the strengtheners fitted over the rear axle.

Re: What year Harley?

Tex, can you say what year Aunt Marie was born? That could possibly help with a cut-off year.

Re: first drive after a loooooong slumber and shes making a bad noise.

If you had the original ring gear on the shelf, were you previously running with a mismatched one?

Really glad you have fixed it though.

Re: 32 stock tudor shortened pitman arm

David's point re the 32 arm positioning the drag link below the frame is very pertinent. While the logic of the idea is sound, (although some seem to be making statements the opposite of what would...

Re: Blown flathead

Make sure you're logged in. Somewhere near top right is a image of a movie camera. Hover over it and it says upload video. Click on it and point it to your video.

Shouldn't be too hard.

Re: Sooty, black plugs ???????

Surely it's just running over rich for some reason? Starts easily. That's because it's over rich. Like having the choke on.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Mike, that would be fantastic.

If there could be some video content posted to Youtube that would be the icing on the cake. (You know I post videos up).
