Re: 32 steering wheel location

Keith, Not sure but the 32 pickup column may be longer. Are you using a stock column or a later column?

Re: 32 Fordor Interior

Sounds like the tack strips are bad. If original they probably need to be replaced by now.

Re: 32 steering wheel location

Get a piece of 1 1/2" plastic pipe the length of the '40 column. Use it to mock up where you want to put it. It's what I have done for a custom installation. Our problem here is we have no idea if...

If you have the stock column with the column lock, the lock mechanism will automatically locate the column where it mounts to the stock holes in the dash.

Re: Anyone with experiences working with Gocat speed shop?

Good thing this guy was not in Chicago in the 40's as the mob would've sent somebody in to "knee cap" him.

Re: Where to get a windshield frame seal for a 34 Phaeton

Check with other V-8 parts vendors. I'd start with Third Gen Automotive, Michael Driskell. Some vendor may have it on the shelf.

Re: Fuel sending unit 1948 Tudor Sedan

It will only go in a certain way due to the baffles in the tank. The float maybe hanging up on a baffle in your tank and keeping it from seating on top of the tank.

Re: Paul Bradley Floors

Seems to me that Bradley is in the same category as GoCat Speed Shop and Flathead City.
All three should be avoided like the plague..

Re: 1940 hand grab

There is also special hardware that is used to mount the straps. It can be a little difficult to find and is not reproduced to my knowledge.

I wonder, due to fact the aftermarket pan has no holes, if the pan fits different body styles and you drill the holes where you need them?
