Re: Elgin road race

Ronnieroadster,


Those doubts were and remain well founded.

Re: 1932 "survivoration"

DD and Robert,


Station wagon bodies were numbered as 'ro' states so it is presumably the eleventh station wagon body built. It would be something of a coincidence if it were the eleventh...

Re: 1932 "survivoration"

woodiewagon46,

With respect, I recommend that you take a closer look at the next original or correctly restored '32 station wagon that you encounter. The side roof rails have a double compound...

Re: paint on oil pan?

No oil present in those areas, right?

Re: paint on oil pan?

Right, all those race car owners who use Glyptal inside their engine blocks, cylinder heads, and oil pans to improve engine performance couldn't possibly know what they are doing.

Re: paint on oil pan?

Consider Glyptal, the special paint used inside big transformers and engine blocks.

Re: 1935 ford Fordor Slantback rear seat frame pic

Unless your seat bottom cushion was manufactured incorrectly, there should be built-in round heavy wire loops to capture the pins on the floor seat riser. That's what holds the bottom cushion in...

Re: A thank you from Pat Mcfarlanes wife

Charlie,


Thanks for sharing the note from Margaret. Her story of the visitors from Sweden is typical of the Pat I knew and admired.

Re: 32 Ford drag link question.

I tend to think of it as where the ball stud holes are located in the drag link in the installed position. The ball stud hole nearest the end of the drag link is at the pitman (steering sector) arm...

Re: Rough measurement to start with "toe" on a '32 front end

;)No doubt a typo, but 1/4" is 5/32" more than 3/32".

Re: Rough measurement to start with "toe" on a '32 front end

Per page 32 of the July, 1932 Service Bulletin, the toe-in should be 1/32" to 3/32".

Re: "Heavy" frame? Please educate me

I seem to recall that the practice began with the '37 model year. My cabriolet has one of them under it.

Just because the frame is somewhat thicker would not mean that it required its own...

Re: Mart's Update: Bits and Bobs 3. 1932 Ford Frame Fix x2. Rad test. Rich's F1.

Cracks around the front shock mounting holes aren't uncommon, but those around the front fender bracket mounting holes are most unusual. I suspect that the vehicle that this frame came from...

Re: "32" Wishbone ball and cap assembly question

Apart from the obviously too long bolts, the original caps were stamped steel, not castings. It was not intended that the ball be lubricated, but as you point out it sort of happened because of the...

Re: Pat McFarlane RIP

One of life's privilege's was to call Pat a good friend; he will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace.

Re: 32 Model B Cabriolet steering adjustment

John,

Sorry, but something is amiss. The large washer that is referred to by Terry in post #39 must be in contact with the upper bearing race in order for it to exert any pressure on the race. ...

Re: Rare Deuce parts thread

DD,

Rather than roll out the then-valid 70-year-old "saved from the crusher" rationale that blew by its "best by" expiry date when the first restored car was turned into a hot rod, why not just...

Re: 32 Model B Cabriolet steering adjustment

John,

Be very careful at this stage of reassembly. If the upper bearing race isn't far enough down to capture the bearing on the top of the worm gear, that bearing may slip off being centered on...

Re: Rare Deuce parts thread

Looks like it had a trip to the barber shop judging from the shaved area in the center.

Re: 32 3 window new wood

I think that even if the original engineering drawings are used to make the wood pieces some tweaking will still be required. The WoodArt pieces that we used came from the Company before it was sold...
