I've noticed some difference on how my clutch has been engaging and started to check over the components. I found that I have some play in the clutch ball bracket. I was looking in Joe's antique...

Re: 40 Ford Pickup ID Numbers

Mine was actually back toward the cab on the frame. Took me a while to find them as they were fairly light.

I'm looking for a reference/repair manual for my '41 PU. I see originals listed for around $100 and repo's for $60. It looks like that the repo's have around 450 pages and the originals have 800...

Re: What OHM's reading sender for fuel tank

So there may be a chance that this will work for me. I know my tank is full so I need to drive it some. Going to the coast for a week as soon as the hurricane clears out. I'll drive it when I get...

Re: What OHM's reading sender for fuel tank

When I replaced my tank I installed an aftermarket sending unit. At the time there were several to choose from that varied in OHM range. I went with "ORG - Early Ford & Mopar - 73-10 Ohms" . I got a...

Re: Wood in bed ?

Hi Bob,
Are you replacing a metal bed(floor) with wood? I just put in a wood kit in a new bed on my '41. There are boards that you have on each side and across the bed supports as a subfloor that...

Re: Some photos of my '41

Thanks for the compliments. It turned out to be a very solid truck. Whoever did the restoration back in the 90's did a great job. It was stored in a very nice climate controlled building that made...

Re: 40 Ford Juice brake performance

I could see the wear on the shoes and it looked like they were making good contact through out the whole shoe. When I checked them last week it was more of a base line on where I was at. I have had...

Re: 40 Ford Juice brake performance

Yeah I was just thinking of where to get a shoe you can depend on. I've purchased several things from Joes Antique Auto and he has been very helpful. I may get the drums turned and check the hardness...

Re: 40 Ford Juice brake performance
