Re: 1937 Ford V8 Steering Box Bushes

They do look correct to me also. You can not hammer the new bushings into place and they MUST be started evenly.

Re: adjusting 39 Ford pickup shocks

Re: Do you think a sleeve will fix this?

check out some of the thick wall sleeves. They can be sealed so there is no water seepage. I have seen holes as big as a walnut in a bore repaired.

Re: Radiator Cap

The original cap is not a pressure cap. Adding a pressure cap will eventually bulge the upper brass tank of the radiator.
