Re: How To Remove Cosmoline

Somebody got it! There was a line from some movie... "I heard a knock at my door and a voice from the other side said 'Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms'. I thought it was a delivery".

Re: Interesting 1935 Ford Truck

Let's face it... A 1 1/2 ton is never gonna bring real money. They cost as much, if not more to restore (huge tires, brake parts etc.) and sell for FAR less than a 1/2 ton. I have probably owned 12...

Re: Interesting 1935 Ford Truck

Ok guys, I'm beginning to get it about the fender skirts. On the right truck they are part of the art deco/streamliner thing. I am very rarely critical of how others build their vehicles, but I have...

Re: What in Tarnation?

Pete, you are the Photo Master! I have searched all the ways I could. It seems someone would have a photo of the ranch with a pic of my tonner somewhere in it. There is another 'Rimrock Ranch' in...

Re: What in Tarnation?

I searched a while to find that old photo this morning. Funny there is a 46-47 ford woodie at the gas pump. Looks like you can get a cabin for the night for 49 bucks, according to what I found on the...

Re: What in Tarnation?

Thanks Pete! And I realized that I got the name of the original owner wrong. It said Rimrock Ranch on the title. It is near Mt Lassen in Northern California. It still has some service records on the...

Re: What in Tarnation?

No Mark, it's a bread display/sales rack I made for our grocery store from reclaimed wall studs salvaged from a 1906 house. The wood shelves are out of it in that picture. And Stu, I just have the...

Re: What in Tarnation?

Thank you Sid. I'm thinking I started this thread primarily about installing the diesel engine, but many of you may not know much else about this tonner. About 5 years ago I was at the Portland Or...

Re: Interesting 1935 Ford Truck

I think it's too bad they made the bed out of various short hardwood scraps. I could almost see that, being a furniture delivery truck, but the wooden wheel tubs are just wrong. Also I think skirts...

Re: Australian 1940-1941 Ford Open Cab Pick-Ups

That big 4x4 is way beyond COOL! I'd love to find a 40-41 big truck front clip.

Re: What in Tarnation?

Still my Go To rig. With so many other trucks, I rarely drive it in inclement weather. I did install electric wipers which ended up being a pair of boat windshield wipers. The one behind the glove...

Re: '40 front fenders

I steer away from gloss paint so the green is pretty much a mixture of flat black rustoleum, flat white rustoleum (flat gray) and whatever gloss green at ace or rustoleum, like hunter green. I have...

Re: Australian 1940-1941 Ford Open Cab Pick-Ups

This one has the rounded back cab, but the three rib belt line... Is there no end to the variations on these Things. ?

Re: Hagerty insurance ?

I have 3 on Hagerty. About 100 bucks a year each. Not real high dollar cars though, but good liability coverage is the most important to me. I like the agreed value and rates, but I LOVE their...

Re: Clutch chatter solved!

Like Mr. Franklin, I like the one on the left, and I also never had one pressed on. They have all been good over the years, but the one in the woodie chatters badly starting on a hill.

Re: using the stock mechanical fuel pump with electric

With me, the two pumps is about the fact that my trucks can sit a long time, and so the battery is perhaps a bit weak and then it's crank, crank, crank getting the fuel up to the carb. I like it for...

Re: Australian 1940-1941 Ford Open Cab Pick-Ups

The rear fenders are definitely unique to these. Depth of a U.S. tonner panel fender, but the back end isn't streamlined at the tail. These are an EXTREMELY handsome vehicle, particularly the canvas...

Re: '40 front fenders

And I got my 214.00 Champion rad installed and temporarily plumbed. The Radiator support has a flange to bolt the rad to and in stock form it tilts the rad back about an inch at the top. My engine...
