Re: 1936 Pickup Bed Questions

Not a '36 but I used (matching colored) fender welting on the joint between the bed side and the bed board. May not be stock but I think it finished it off nicely.

Re: Horn rod removal

I had to remove the rear window in my '38 to get the horn rod/button out. If you can work on the horn button while its still in the truck just remove the clip and raise it up off the steering wheel....

Re: Turkey Day but The Hawks Are Out There

I can relate to your disappointment but I sure don't see anything that was dishonest about the seller wanting more than you offered. If you don't want to pay the price or play the game just move on.

Re: 1939 pickup 1/2 ton engine noise

Looks like you are running both an alternator and the old generator?? Try removing the belt and see what it sounds like.

Re: 1939- 1940 Ford brake + clutch petal assy

I also made an extended clutch fork shaft so the '38 clutch shaft arm lined up with the '39 pedal linkage. You could also source a '39 clutch shaft arm that is offset so it will line up with the '39...

Re: Single stage or base/clear

Yes white can be a bugger to match. The one thing going for you is that the top is a separate part. Is there a gasket between the top and the body that shows?

Re: Single stage or base/clear

My pickup is single stage urethane that I painted in my driveway. Looks great after 19 years and it was easy to work with. Get a good respirator if you do it yourself.

Maybe add a vintage compass that would cover the extra holes.

I found that I had to make extensions to the...

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

But you have to remember that with the current exchange rate $300 US dollars is equal to about $400 Canadian dollars. That Fenton would be about $245 US.

Re: Stromberg S-jet

Been running mine since the new 97's came out. One stuck open once and they replaced the plastic floats with brass ones and I never had a problem again. I only run non oxygenated gas, no alcohol.

Re: Starter wrap

I think the starter insulation wrap is used on Chevys that have the solenoid on the starter motor. I believe its the solenoid that doesn't want to work when it gets hot not the starter motor.
