Re: 33/4 17" beauty rings

Thanks to all on this. I actually need the trim rings for a 33 Pontiac. Would like to have some on my 34 though.

Re: It is getting harder to find basic parts at the auto parts stores anymore

Around here at least half of the parts store employees are female and they know their stock better than the men.

Re: New House For The New Year-Flathead Powered

I'dd say that roof would last about one second at a speed of even 30 mph. I would much rather have that boom truck in the background.

Re: Is there such a thing as columbia clutch ?

The clutch inside of a Columbia is normally replaced with teflon, the original material was cork if I am not mistaken.

Re: Christmas in the shop with a project

If your car was a serious contender in the old days, it would have had full floating hubs from a 39/41 3/4ton on the rear and right front. That way, a broken axle would not loose a wheel and...

Re: 1940 3/4 t axles

The snouts from that rear end are cut off to be used with both the right front spindle and both sides of a car rear end to give full floating axles. The hubs would then fit on those snouts. These...

early 28 steering gear

My 28 has what looks like the brass packing nut off a waterpump below the gear and above the light switch. Would this be original or something someone added to control leaking with packing?

Re: Light switch rod and steering box need help

If you have a 40, drill it our, find a piece of tubing that your rod will fit in and will pass thru the steering shaft, solder it to the plate and you are in business.

Re: Really Cool Old & New Stuff

New radiator is not an original Ford, Ford did not make honeycomb radiators. Still a very good radiator. No wonder 32-4 parts dried up around here after the 50s, looks like you got them all.

Re: Attaching pics
