Northern CA Appraiser Needed

Hi, all. I'm considering selling my '32 Model B Roadster PU. Been in our family 80 years, so hasn't been for sale since my dad bought it in 1939. I think my family is the 3rd owner: County of San...

Re: 1934 picku cab wood and seat

As you said, I'm sure '32s are quite different. But I thought I'd upload a couple of pics of my Open Cab '32 pickup that shows the rear wood slats. I don't know if Closed Cab 32s are the same.

Re: 1937 Ford Panel

Thanks for all the pics in the album, Ray. Shows true dedication--and far more patience than I have! Beautiful job on all those curves, swoops, and swales. I'm sure you have no finger prints left...

Re: Wring crimping tool?

Of course like most things, I had no idea it was so complicated and/or controversial. ��

Wring crimping tool?

Does anyone sell a crimping tool for the chassis wiring bullet ends? I think it must have a half circle that supports the barrel while indenting the other half. These things are a pain to solder.

Here are pics of the horn on my August '32 Roadster PU. This bracket it curved, not U-shape, where it attaches to the horn body. Now, if I could just get it to beep like it's supposed to.

Re: 1934 Pickup Seat Advice and Interior Questions

Re: Leaf Spring Poly-Slide

I did it on my '32 front spring, but I removed a leaf or two to soften the ride. They were a pain to work with and keep in place. I wouldn't do it again. A good grease like Jim/TX/GA suggested is a...

Re: Model B starter broken

Wondering how you check the alignment? I did rotate the flywheel a full turn to check all the teeth on the ring gear. Looking in through the starter hole, the ring gear is set back on the flywheel...

Re: Model B starter broken

Okay, I'm getting confused by the options.
1. It sounds like the armature is separate from the shaft and can be swapped with another shaft? I thought armature and shaft were sort of one unit, and...

Re: Model B starter broken

Well, my eyesight isn't what it used to be, but, yeah, I'm pretty sure the shaft is broken ;)

Shaft looks crystalized on much of the interior, with only a couple of shiny metal break spots. Or I...

Re: Fixed my '32 Throttle Knob

Great idea! Hopefully I won't have to try that, but I'll try to remember your method if I do.

I put mine back together just now. Everything seems tight and the throttle works well.

Re: 1932 Model B Choke Cable question

DavidG and 32phil: The cable I have works for choking, but it does bind a bit when shoving back in. The overall choke function is there--it just takes a bit of fiddling sometimes.

Re: 1932 Model B Choke Cable question

Yep, that's what I was thinking, too. Pricey little suckers. Exactly why I was wondering if anyone ever tried fabricating one from another application!
