Re: Gasoline Alley - Hershey

Some pictures I took of the Gasoline Alley area in Red Field, 2021 Hershey. Most of this area is still there with many spots still open and available. Although some of the vendors who were there in...

Re: Which Shaft is Broken

Thank you, I think many of us here would benefit from seeing detailed pictures of exactly what failed, as well as knowing what actually caused this failure.

Re: 2021 Hershey

It was good to see you and your Dad there Frank, and also visit with as many of my other Early Ford V8 friends as I could find. I thought the crowds were down as well, but still a pretty good turnout...

Re: Which Shaft is Broken

I'm betting he already has 3.78 rear gears in that '41, but agree that 3.54 would be better for highway cruising. Also, if changing to 3.54, I'd suggest running with 15 tooth input, 29 tooth cluster...

Re: Which Shaft is Broken

Of course you do not need to remove the rear on an early Ford with a closed driveshaft to replace a broken axle, BUT you never know what else that failure could have damaged internally unless you...

Re: 1939 Ford Deluxe Vert STUCK in Reverse

What's the history on this transmission? Was it out of the car sometime in its recent past for repairs/rebuild by you or a previous owner? Or was the shifter top removed recently for some reason,...

Re: Which Shaft is Broken

After thinking about this a bit longer, before pulling the complete rear, the first thing I would suggest doing is pull those hub/drum assemblies and double check to make sure your problem is not a...

Re: Which Shaft is Broken

I'm thinking if the speedo is registering steady and varies with engine speed as you depress the accelerator, then something has failed behind the point where the speedo drive gear is located on the...

Re: Removing '35 Dash Light Switch

Yes, squeezing in on those two tabs at the same time and pushing out on the switch body from behind the dash will bring the switch out. Be very careful doing this, since that switch seems to be...

Re: 34 Gas Tank Drain plug

I've tried several different methods (but never used heat) to remove gas tank drain plugs on various early Ford's, and have never been successful. I usually wind up completely removing the tank, and...

Re: 1937 aluminum intake problems

Nice looking '37 pickup. I've always felt the '37 PU had the best looking grille in the years from '35 to '39.

Re: 1937 aluminum intake problems

A bit of trivia :rolleyes: ......if you can't find a US wheatback, or wheatstalk penny, you can use a US memorial back penny minted from 1959 to 1981, which is the same composition as the "wheaties"...

Re: Installing MGB lever Shocks on 39 Pickup

He does a good job on rebuilding originals, plus it looks as though he also does the MG shocks based on info on his website. Andy was trained by Bill Wzorek and took over his business 4 or 5 years...

Re: 1939 Ford Deluxe Vert STUCK in Reverse

So with the help from Mac VP, were you able to get the transmission out of reverse? Did you remove the shift tower and find something wrong with that, or does Mac just feel your problem is definitely...

Re: Installing MGB lever Shocks on 39 Pickup

Can you please post pictures of the MGB shocks that you picked up? I'm curious to see what they look like and what provisions they have for mounting.

Re: 35 Drums on 36 spindles

By doing what you're suggesting, the threaded studs for lug nuts may be too short. As much as I dislike seeing any original parts modified & possibly screwed up, if the nubs are machined/ground off,...

Re: 35 Drums on 36 spindles

If you use '35 drums and you are not planning to use '35 or earlier wire wheels, then you would need to remove (grind off) 5 nubs/projections that are cast into the '35 hub to give proper support to...
