Re: Older OEM gaskets vs new gaskets

Depends on the application and the condition of the older gaskets. The only general rule might be direct contact with gasoline where new gaskets' material might be better suited to do the job.

Re: 34 ford woodgrain

Not to throw a monkey wrench into this, but it should be noted that early '34s utilized evidently excessive leftover '33 dashes with a special overlapping instrument panel insert that once installed...

Re: part id..1932 or 1933/34 v8 ford

They were also used initially on '33 V8s with front cross members that carried over the '32 spacing of the center lines of the motor mount insulators of 12". When that spacing was increased to 17"...

Re: 32 sedan patch panels any good ones made?

Or find someone locally with the equipment and talent to make it. They are out there.

Re: 1934 pickup

On further thought (and research) I believe that Ford deleted the screw attachment and therefore the holes in the cover plate as a cost savings running change during the '34 model year.

That (reluctance to talk about it) was more common among vets than not.

Re: Conversation with a WWII Veteran

Marcus,

Please ask your Uncle John if his paths ever crossed those of Al Kiraly. The odds are long and I don't recall Cousin Al's unit plus I think he was stationed on the India side of the...

My first car, a '32 standard coupe, was rear-ended on the Ohio Turnpike on its way home. The drunk driving the new '55 Chevrolet that was totaled in the process was fortunately not injured nor was...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Nice work, Mike.

I can relate to this type of effort. We often have to remove thin sections of fenders not originally from the subject project car to ensure proper fit and once in a while even if...

Re: 32 roadster top bows

Good point, but even a top covering made from scratch to fit will not avoid the problem of oversized bows in the appearance of the finished top.


As for the markings on the Oak Bows bows, I've...

Re: 32 roadster top bows

I'm not sure that there is an alternative to Oak Bows except perhaps in laminated bows.

Beware, however, as Oaks Bows does not provide any of the attachment holes in the bows and their bows are...

That would be a dumb modification, no wonder you added a hose to carry it outside.

Thanks for the education; clearly different from the '33 pattern.

Re: Help with a family issue

Michael,


It's not a Model A. '32 commercial gas tanks do not vent inside the cab unless you operate the vehicle without floorboards, which is a whole set of real dangers.

Re: 32-34 Ford Pickup owners-- Hardware question

Just the doubler that served for the third, inboard attachment point. It reinforced the other two holes in the lower bed flange.

Re: 32-34 Ford Pickup owners-- Hardware question

With respect, that listing is in error, which is not a first in the catalog. 21531-S is a 5/16-18 x 2 1/2 hex head bolt, which makes no sense on two counts. First, it is way, way too long for the...

You know, it would be nice if folks would actually know something about 1932-35 fuel tanks before sounding off. All Ford tanks of those model years use un-vented gas caps because the tanks are...
