Re: Found some nice old Ford pics.

Dalgety was a well known business name in New Zealand a few years back. Nice pictures Mart as I am putting a 37 together at the moment that will park next to my 38 that I drive.

Thanks G.M.
That is what both pumps do. I can move them both forward 3-4mm (3/16") and they return when I release them.
I just received these pumps and on installing them I found that the left...

I saw a 40 box recently where a washer had been slipped on to the end of the shaft and welded in place. The weld was crap and had broken allowing the shaft to slide out of the wheel and jamb against...

Re: Dual exhaust on right hand drive 1940 pickup

Hey Nathan,

Here is my amateur attempt at the RHS of a RHD dual exhaust. I have only shown the RHS as the LHS is straight forward with no obstructions to talk about. This was only done yesterday...

Re: Dual exhaust on right hand drive 1940 pickup

No heat shields required as it clears the starter and steering box by plenty.
Not sure about the master cylinder as my '37 is still running cable brakes.

Hey Nathanmac,
I was doing this exact thing on my RHD '37 today. Finished the RHS today and half finished the LHS.

Re: 1937 RHD Sedan Dual Exhausts

Thanks my4dv8, the LHS can stay with the stock manifold as there is plenty of room. I will hunt for a different RHS manifold that will allow the pipe to exit further away from the steering box.

Re: 1937 RHD Sedan Dual Exhausts

Re: 1937 Ford V8 Steering Box Bushes

New bushes arrived today and they look to be the correct part.
They will not easily push through the steering box housing like the ones that I first posted, and will not slide over the sector shaft....

Re: 1937 Ford V8 Steering Box Bushes

Thanks all. I will change them out then.
P.S. Mart - your videos are top notch. I have learnt a lot about my 37 and 38 through your projects.

Re: 1937 Ford V8 Steering Box Bushes

Re: Spring Shackle Pins for a '37 V8 (New Zealand)

Should I be changing them all to the pins that are currently available? That is, the ones that look to have a vulcanised rubber in between the inner pin and the outer sleeve?
