Re: Flathead Vacuum Question

Yes, we are pretty high up here in Denver and I do have dual carbs on the Edmunds intake.

I just bought this T touring half with an abbreviated pickup bed.

I think it's like a 1919 to 1922 but I'm not 100% positive.

I'm not a truck guy so I have to ask.

Do the 1/2 ton and one ton trucks have the same cab and front sheet metal?

Re: driveshaft bearing and seal

The right way to do this is with a KR Wilson tool made for pulling the sleeve out. I know a restorer who did mine, it literally pulled the sleeve out and only took a few minutes.
