Re: 1946 Ford pickup steering wheel

I believe that the 40-47 1/2T pickups used basically the same 2 spoke steering wheel as the '40 and up cars that fit the tapered shaft. Not sure that it was the "deluxe style" but that's what is...

Re: Iola old car show

Pole barns were originally built using something like round telephone poles sunk into the ground but now they are primarily built using treated square posts.

Re: Wiring Dash and instrument cluster 1940

I find that one of those headlamps that you wear really helps under the dash as it aims the light right where you are looking.

Re: Chassis question

Don't know if this helps but here is a photo of my '38 pickup front end as I started with a IFS install. The frame is stock '38 commercial car. All I have done in this photo is trimmed the bottom of...

Re: Speedometer for 36 to S 10 tail shaft transmission?

Just checked a 17260-B cable on ebay and its listed to fit 1930-1948 pass cars. The male threaded end of the T5 mechanical sender is the same as the males threads on the stock Ford "turtle" sender....

Not really because the raised portions of the badge are not painted.

Re: 38/39 hood side badges....

That's what I was thinking. That big blue badge is just a little too much.

Re: 5/16-24 wing nuts...

Sorry, no wing nuts in my parts bin. Probably were not on my truck when I bought it so I used hex nuts. Not really sure why Ford used the wing nuts anyway. Seems to me that they don't hold as well...

Re: 38/39 hood side badges....

The blue paint had fallen off my badges too so I painted them the same red as the rest of the body as I wasn't doing a true restoration.

Re: Speedometer for 36 to S 10 tail shaft transmission?

If you have the stock mechanical T5 speedo drive unit the stock Ford cable should screw right on. It can get a little tight and you may have to grind a little off the frame to clear the cable fitting.

Re: Ford WWII bomb truck question

Can't see the grill very well but it looks like the front end is 1940/41 Ford 3/4T or bigger truck and I'd go with the V8.

Re: 1936 speedo to 5 speed tranny

The electronic speedo T5's typically go for less money so it may not be so bad in the end.

I converted my early TO hub to work with a diaphragm style clutch. I would love to see a photo of what you end up with for your hub application.

Re: Convex mirror

I agree. In my pickup I use the drivers side mirror basically just to check the blind spot but I still turn my head to look before making any maneuvers. The right mirror lets me see the edge of the...

Re: Question for 39 pickup experts

The '38 and '39 outer rims are the same. The centers of the two grills are totally different so the center trims do not interchange.

I have a '39 grill on my '38 truck and have trim for both '38...

Re: Question for 39 pickup experts

This is what I did on my pickup. I used a flexible plastic, stick on automotive trim. The V8 emblem is from a newer Ford Explorer. Not stock but it looks great so it works for me.
