Re: Axle Quick fix seals which direction?

Never seen one quite like that, anyway the lip should go to the inside where the liquid grease is. The "fix it seals" I have do not interfere with the keyway and to not have that protruding part.

Re: Oil pan baffels ?

32-4 pans are long and straight. 35 up have more of a "sump" where the oil sets, some of them had sumps and some later may not have. Some even had a sump well arrangement where the pump intake was.

Re: Australian 1934 Ford Coupe Ute plus Video

When I got to the butchered undercarrage, I just cut the video off. That would have been a twice as nice car if it was truly restored.

Re: First 2 speed axles

Re: 1949 Ford f5 1.5 ton dump truck need info

If you raise the bed to work on it, put a 4x4 across the back between the frame and bed so it cannot come down. Pictures would help as there were three or four main mfg of dump beds back then.
