Re: Is the the correct window crank handle for a 1940 Pickup?

This is a photo of the window crank on my 40 Tonner. If you can zoom in for a closeup you'll see that it has a fluted surface finish - not smooth.

Re: 1938 85 1.5 ton gearing

Check with Chuck Manzione at Chuck’s Trucks. https://www.chuckstrucksllc.com/. I bought a set of 4.10 gears from him when restoring the tonner. He’s very knowledgeable about the early Ford trucks.

The original engine in my 40 Tonner has 81T heads and was 221 CI prior to boring to 239 CI during the rebuild. It wasn't sleeved.

Re: Can't Find Neutral in 1940 4-Speed Tranny

Re: What is this truck?

Did the 1940 Australian Big Trucks have a cowl vent? I canít tell from your photos. That might explain the use of 1/4 windows on trucks made in Australia.
