Re: Hershey experience

Thanks for posting that full size picture mercman. A frient texted me about that vehicle, but I was not sure of the area he mentioned in his text, so I wound up not seeing that one.
Owning that Ute...

Re: USA mfg screws

What you need to do is find an old fart (like me) who has been playing with, and sometimes working on, these cars since they were a kid, and saved every piece of hardware they removed from the cars...

Re: stubborn rear brake drum seal removal

You can easily do that on front drum/hubs, but not so easily done on the rear drum/hubs from 32 to 48, IMHO.

Re: 1936 Ford pickup restoration

I'd love to own a truck like yours, and make no mistake, it would stay exactly like you found yours except for making it mechanically sound and safe to drive.

Re: Hershey weather?

Hi Clem, Sorry to hear you had some medical issues, and had to miss your annual trek to Hershey. I knew something/someone was missing here.

Re: Running without a torque tube center bearing ?

Come up to my place in Rising Sun, MD and I'll give you one. I must have two dozen of them that I have no use for.

PS....I am thinking about using some for light posts on the drive way leading to...

Re: Oil pan baffels ?

I'd suggest leaving that baffle alone and clean the pan with that inplace. It's there for a good reason. I've had oil pans that leaked at the spot welds because someone had cut the center section...

Re: Etching Ford Bugs on to glass.

That's the same question I had 45-50 years ago when I listened in on conversations about having bugs on glass. It took me awhile to figure out what they were really talking about. :)

Re: Running without a torque tube center bearing ?

That's a good point Jeff, and also who's to say the "mechanic" who installed the first Skip Haney bearing in the '41 torque tube didn't do something correct, and screwed that bearing up, possibly...

Re: 37 glove box clips

If those springs are not hooked in the correct position on door and hinge plate, you will have trouble. Once I learned the correct way to do those on 35 & 36's, it became a very simple procedure.

Re: steering columm bushing

Okay Tom, I should have read further down the thread and read this before making my previous post. So it looks like it's the 40 column where the wheelbarrow bearing doesn't work too well. What about...

Re: steering columm bushing

Tom, It depends on which year steering column you are putting that flanged wheelbarrow bearing into. Works great on '35-'36 steering columns, and probably other years before and after those years....

Re: Where are you at HERSHEY

Re: 34 Ford Crankshaft Pulley?

That is the best option "IF" you can find a 91C pulley. I wasn't that lucky, so I used a standard 59 series dual sheave pulley. The front pulley can be cut off for clearance if necessary on a '34,...

Re: 36 rear drum

That's definitely a good one, and maybe the only repro of the original KRW that's currently being manufactured.

Re: 36 rear drum

That's exactly correct Mart, and that Vintage Precision Puller is as good as the original style KRW puller IMO.

Re: 36 rear drum

That type puller might work okay on drums that are not locked tightly on axle, but it will not work too well on really tight fitting parts. The original or reproduction KRW is the best. There's...
