Re: 35-37 ford pickup question

I think the 35 had removeable trim on the inside of doors and 36 and 37 had the trim as a connected part. Early had rubber bumpers at door glass, later had felt sweeps. Some had two metal...

Re: Fuel injection

Re: 1939 Pickup windshield frame repair

I would drill a hole in the broken square piece, tap it to say 10/24 and use a slide hammer to remove it.

Re: Front spring clamp confusion

Your right, I overstated the thickness. A short piece of Spring under the clamp might be better than washers.

Re: Front spring clamp confusion

It is probably a stupid question, but do you have the woven pad above the springs? They are about 1/4" thick.

Re: 1936 pickup bed

The stake side ford script beds, like my 37 has were wood and metal strip, and the rear fenders have channels for the bed to run through. Ford did it both ways!

Re: 1937 Steering Box

I installed Red's headers on my 37 pickup, that has a 1940 flathead. I had to raise the front of the engine about 1/2" to clear. No big deal, I made longer shouldered bolts.

Re: 37 Pick Up steering column drop

Re: 1936 Ford Pickup

They are held in place by a set screw that is accessible from the door jam. They can be hard to get loose. It helps if you have the key so you can pull on the lock as well. If the set screw wont come...
