Another vote for Third Gen Automotive (Michael Driskell) and add A&L Parts Specialties, Canton, CT to the list.

Re: transmission floor cover

Don't be too cavalier. The rods have a purpose. Should you not repair the broken side, if the other side gave way you might end up with the fan kissing the radiator, which is highly undesirable.

Re: transmission floor cover

Obviously that has been apart previously, as a plain hex nut and lock washer was used originally. Can't tell for sure from your photo, but the nut there looks to be a thread chaser and not the nut...

Re: transmission floor cover

The part of the floor immediately adjacent to where the rod is attached is an integral part of the body and not removable separately. No North American '33 or '34 has a wood floor board in the area...

Re: transmission floor cover

A countersunk washer would be required and it would leave the bolt higher than original, which depending on the thickness of the washer might be high enough to leave little or no threads for the hex...

Re: transmission floor cover

Castle nuts were used on the front end of the steady rods along with a cotter pin until they were replaced with slotted hex nuts (still with cotter pins) as a running change during the '33 model...

Re: transmission floor cover

Why do you want to remove the rod(s)? With a four such as you have the only way you can remove the rods is pull the engine forward, which is a big deal.

Re: 36 model 68 body panel drawing?

Re: need your help

Hoop's suggestion is the way to go. I would add that you should request that they also include a statement to the effect that: "The Benson Ford Research Center at the Henry Ford is Ford Motor...

Re: 78-8620 'A' vs 'C' gen belt 42-48

With respect, what you are seeking was never available in reproduction form. Ford belts of the period were not stenciled with the Ford script and part number, but rather those were molded into the...

Re: '37 headlights

Alan,


With respect, '37s don't have horn relays. Further, white paint on the inside of the buckets may result in marginally brighter light than the original silver, but it certainly doesn't...

Re: great 1934 ford ad

Not just white, but double white. They look great, but would look even better with dark-colored wheels.


To each his own.

Re: 78-8620 'A' vs 'C' gen belt 42-48

Robert,


The suffix refers to Ford's design level of the part, not to an industry reference as to a cross section size.

Re: 1932 Ford RPU door hinges

The challenge with your door hinges, in addition to providing reasonable gaps on the front side and bottom of the door when closed, is that the hinge pins must line up vertically or the door will...

Re: transmission floor cover

It could be the bolt head is not as well formed or has corroded over time or the depression the frame cross member is deeper on one side. Or since the ''33-'34 special bolts are not threaded into...

Re: 1932 Ford RPU door hinges

The B-76600, 76601, 76602, and 76603 hinges are unique, not carried over from Model A and not used on any other '32 body type. One reason for that is that unlike all other body types, including the...

Re: 1936 floorboard screws

Go back and re-read post #22 and you will note that certain '35-'36 commercial vehicles used #12 screws, not the 1/4" screws used on passenger cars.

Re: 34 front engine mount /water outlet

Re: 1936 floorboard screws

How did a simple question about the head configuration of a screw turn into a question about the virtues or lack thereof of authenticity?

Re: Original 'Ford' Flathead Water Pump

They're not especially rare and not all original pumps had the script as it was added to help deter warranty fraud.
