Re: 1928 Open Cab Pick-up Wire Routing

Don’t know if this is per any judging guidelines, but on my ‘30 OCPU the harness leaves the lower frame, just goes over the axle to a tie-down block behind the axle, then into a flex conduit, to the...

Re: Filler putty for aluminum intake?

Used this stuff frequently. As long as it’s clean, it will stick and doesn’t seem to be affected by engine heat.
It sets hard and you can drill, mill, file, etc.

Re: Boat Anchor

I’m sure it’s at least as warm down there as it is here already. I’d suggest you open your air/fuel adjustment a little bit more and see if it helps your setup.
If you’re driving it a lot in...

Not sure what ‘good brake shop’ suggested adjusting the stationary and the middle adjusters, but ‘46-48’s only have middle adjusters.

Did find a little (DOT5)...

Re: Fender cover

The Snyder mat works pretty good. It has holes cut into it to go around the headlight bars and hold it in place. It also has slots marked on it that you can cut if you have fender mounted spares....

Re: Fan Blade orientation

No, it will not blow air forward thru the radiator unless it is rotated in reverse (CCW from the front) - which it is not - it is still turning CW, it just was not using the curvature of the blades...

Re: Mitchell O.D.

Yup, wished mine was. Would be more like a 2-spd truck axle.
The two sticks just arenít positioned for ease of shifting.

Do they have a conversion kit ?

Re: Hand throttle missing

Thanks for that. Kinda what I expected.

It appears that the second finger is too short (cut off ?) to engage the throttle pedal arm. See pic.

Might have to weld an extension on it.
