Re: 41 Railroad express

There was one up in New Tazewell, TN, loaded with engines. 41s also had the wide 5 wheels, at least one I bought did with the 3/4 ton rear end.

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

would be a lot easier if the forum soft ware automatically downsized pics that are too large to post. Many of us are just not savy to all this.

Re: I broke my truck! Plus some dumb luck.

I popped one on my 37 pulling out from a stop sign. The axle broke right where there was a ring wore in the axle from the inner seal.

Re: Axle Quick fix seals which direction?

Never seen one quite like that, anyway the lip should go to the inside where the liquid grease is. The "fix it seals" I have do not interfere with the keyway and to not have that protruding part.

Re: Oil pan baffels ?

32-4 pans are long and straight. 35 up have more of a "sump" where the oil sets, some of them had sumps and some later may not have. Some even had a sump well arrangement where the pump intake was.

Re: Australian 1934 Ford Coupe Ute plus Video

When I got to the butchered undercarrage, I just cut the video off. That would have been a twice as nice car if it was truly restored.

Re: First 2 speed axles

Re: 1949 Ford f5 1.5 ton dump truck need info

If you raise the bed to work on it, put a 4x4 across the back between the frame and bed so it cannot come down. Pictures would help as there were three or four main mfg of dump beds back then.
