Re: W.C.F.B Carburetor

You will probably not need anything for your carb. The accelerator pump has a leather cup and the needle valves are steel on brass. They do not leak because no low openings in the bowl. I have been...

Re: Building a new spring, need advise

You need to specify the arch so you can get the ride heigth right.
A 1/4" thick leaf is much stiffer than a 3/16" leaf. You may end up with the car sitting higher and riding worse.
It has been a...

Re: '32 Steering Box/Pitman Arm Clocking

The cone bearings were not marked and there are two different styles. They look exactly alike. I still do not kno how to check which are early and which late. It changes the gasket required.

Re: '32 Steering Box/Pitman Arm Clocking

You may have a later arm. I believe the arm should me marked wit a B-**** part number. It should go down straight at first and then bend inboard. The drag link fits from the inside.
An arm marked...

Re: Hard time removing steering wheel on 32

It is made in two pieces that bolt together. There is a hole in the middle and it is also tapered in.

Re: Steering box adjustment

That would be pretty hard to do. You would need to machine a new slot in the steering shaft. I would just get a 34 worm.

Re: Steering box adjustment

The 35 worm is indexed 90* from a 34 worm. The key in the worm always points to the sector. The 35 box was turned 90* for the cross steer so the worm high point would attach 90* around on the shaft.

Re: It is getting harder to find basic parts at the auto parts stores anymore

Some stores no longer carry heater hose in bulk. Most hoses now are preformed so no need for bulk.

Re: 37 igniton lock cylinder removal

It does not matter. Once the pin is out, it will just slide out.

Re: 1937-39 Steering Box

I have many of both kinds of bottom plates. The brass tube ones have thinner wall tubes so the horn rod will go thru. The steel ones used 40–48 will not let the horn rod go thru.

Re: 1937-39 Steering Box

One clue to tell a 37-39 from a 40-48 is the bottom plate. The 37-39 should have the adapter to mount the light switch. If no adapter, look to see if the tube going up inside the steering shaft is...

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

I was just trying to share some thoughts on getting the master cylinder so it is pushed all the way in with full pedal travel. Your dimensions are probably different.
