Re: 1934 FORD BB TRUCK brake drums

I think those might actually be a little newer than '34. I don't think '34 drums had the ribs in the drums. Those with more knowledge would know better. I'm pretty sure there are 2 rear axles at...

Re: Fuel tank dipping & sealing opinions welcome

Now, it obviously wouldn't be "period correct", but would adding a "drip leg" help with sediment? When I say drip leg, I mean just a pipe that comes straight down off the inlet (if the inlet comes...

Re: 1930 Tudor out for a drive

I would also suggest that you get a new one piece aluminum fan from one of the major suppliers. I've heard (and seen) horror stories of fans coming apart while running.

Re: 1934 ford bb truck

34 Hotrod Kid,

If those are the same as a standard rear drum, I have a few rear axles with drums at my parents house. I would love to see some photos of your truck as I also have a '34 BB truck....

Re: Help Iím Lost

Skip Haney is the man for rebuilt flathead coils. In my experience ( limited), I've found bad coils usually work, then don't as they get warm.

Re: Crimp style connector/wiring question

Can anyone provide a link or photos of a "correct" wire crimper tool? I'm curious as to what they look like and if they are "cheap enough" for the common man. I'm a solder wires kind of guy, but...

Re: Finally had it with the gas tank.

I've heard of some people that have jacked the wheel up on a tractor and strapped the tank to the wheel. Run the tractor in gear and it spins the tank. Put a little bit of gravel or stone to knock...

Re: Identify brake lever?

Do you need just the arm, or the whole cross shaft? I'm pretty sure I could dig up a cross shaft.

Re: Aa 30 - 31

Nice, long wheelbase. I wonder if that's a steel top too? That's quite the washer they have on the rear axle.

Re: Paint "Stars" in fenders

You could try "chip guard" paint. Maybe truck bed undercoating?

For sure let us know your location. We have a stash of transmissions at my parents house.

Jim,

Nice to see you here. Maybe one of these days I'll send you some injectors if I get off my butt.

Re: What year is this truck?

I think the parking brake handle may still be good. Interesting that the gas tank is still there.

Re: At wits' end

Flathead Ted,

If I blipped the throttle, it would take the gas. I haven't looked down the carb while it was running or while I was giving it throttle, but it never seemed to not take the gas or...

Thank you, I will send you a PM.

Re: At wits' end

I was actually thinking of contacting you about this issue because you are somewhat close. Maybe I should just pick up the engine and bringing it elsewhere. I totally agree that...

That's good info there, thank you. I pulled out another intake from the stash, is there a good way to check them for cracks? It's just a pain because I'm going to have to put the engine...

Re: At wits' end

Brian,

I wouldn't say it fluctuates, but would call it more of a "flutter". I'm pretty sure that I did a coat of copper spray on the intake gasket when I installed it.

Re: At wits' end

Richard Crow,

Valve springs are new, although I guess some could be bad.

Brian,

I may do that if we can't find anything else that doesn't add up.

Re: At wits' end

Brian,

The intake manifold is aluminum. The lowest vacuum I've seen was about 14-15"

Re: At wits' end

Brian,

I'm under the impression that he took the head off and used a dial indicator and degree wheel. He said it was about 9.5 degrees BTDC that the intake opened.

Do you think there would be...

Re: At wits' end

I haven't checked it recently (in the last year or 2), but I believe that it ranged from 52(ish)psi- 65(ish) psi. I understand this is low, but it has incorrect heads on it currently,...
