Re: Another Led tail light question

Here is a comparison of a white LED with a red LED on the back of my recently acquired 51 Ford. The left side is the new white LED and the right is the red LED that was in the car when a bought it. ...

Re: Hemmings MOdel A Calendar

Maybe they made a dumb decision, but maybe they weren't selling enough of them? As a rational person, that is what I think. Maybe they aren't rational.

I always bought their Abandoned Vehicle...

Re: Accepting cash for car sale

This is only part of your question but any bank transaction over $10,000 is reported to the IRS.

I think you were right to be nervous about taking $87,500 in cash from someone you don't know at...

Re: Consensus of opinion

I have alternators on both of my A's. I went with a Powergen for my 1930 because I hate the way the modern alternators look on a Model A. Expensive, but it's been a great unit. I have halogen...

Re: Hershey Thursday. ..Changes next year

Most probably know this, but it is through Fri next year, so no Saturday. The show will be on Friday. I assume it starts on Tuesday rather than Wednesday, but I can't remember.

I walked almost...

Re: Roadster or Coupe?

Well, you could buy two, depending upon your budget. I first bought a Town Sedan and love it. Then I bought a roadster. I probably like it more than the sedan, but for touring a sedan can't be...

Re: Theft Prevention Ideas??

I have enough of a time remembering that first gear isn't up to the left. More than once I have realized I have put it in reverse at a stop light. All my moderns are manual trans, too. LOL.

Re: Disc Brakes V Bendix Brakes-Which performs best??

Make sure they are adjusted properly, too.

I know others have switched to discs in the front. I am sure someone will chime in later.

Re: Ford Motor Co during the war.

I assume that some of these were Ford designed and some were designed by others and built by Ford. Still a remarkable achievement and worth remembering and commemorating.

Re: 45 Truck parking brake problems

Per Rich B's comment, I went out and looked at my backing plates. The place where the cable threads through the backing plate is bolted on, so it seems that there is that difference between my...

Re: 45 Truck parking brake problems

Interesting observation. The link to the parts drawing shows that tube, too. I think the truck was in pretty good shape when...

Re: 45 Truck parking brake problems

That's my theory. I am pulling the other wheel to find out. I will also check on part numbers on the lever to see, as well as the horizontal arm that actuates the brake.

Re: 46 Ford parking brake problem

I am having a similar problem with the parking brake on my 45 truck. I started a new thread to find a solution to my problem and came across this as I continued to search for a solution.

Re: 45 Truck parking brake problems

Terry,OH, hmmm. It's a half ton truck.

I would think that Kube's shot of the 40 brakes is right. As for mine, I agree that they should be applied given how far forward the lever is. Moving it...

Re: 45 Truck parking brake problems

I have not removed the brake drum on the other side to see the difference, which I will do today. Thinking on it, I don't see that reversing them would make a difference, either. I agree that...

45 Truck parking brake problems

The parking brake has not worked well on my 45 truck, so I adjusted it so it would hold. Problem was, the brakes were dragging when the brake was off. Delving further into it, the brake was only...
