Default 1939 Ford Pickup

Just wondering if there are other Ford 39 PU's in East Tennessee. I thought it might be beneficial if we got together and compared problems and solutions. My truck is in Seymour and I live in Maryville. Just message me.
Thanks
Randy

Hey Clem, Thanks for the reply. I don't have problems just thought I would like to meet up with someone with a truck like mine and visit. Thanks

Randy if you ever venture up the east coast and end up here in "Vacationland" by all means give me a shout! Hope your 39 has been running well, I know mine has. Not many of these around, that's why I bought a T. Scott

Great idea, unfortunately I am in Fort Wayne, In. I am the only one that I am aware of in the area with a 39. Unfortunately, mine is sick with an oil pressure problem. Pulled the engine a 2nd time and the re-builder is at it again. Thankfully the guys are backing their work..

Hey Clem, I also wondered about a thrown pump. I sure hope that it heals its self. That would be a happy ending for sure. I'm still looking for friends near me with a 39 PU. I love to look at other 39's to give me ideas for mine.

Randy, are you an Early Ford V8 Club member? You should plan a trip for you and your pickup to the Grand National in Dearborn, Michigan next June. I also have a '39 pickup.

Randy, Seth's suggestion about joining the Early Ford V-8 Club is good, and also becoming a member of a local Regional Group is very beneficial for meeting up with like minded folks interested in these old Fords.
Another suggestion would be to contact Michael Driskell in Tennessee at Third Generation Automotive. He may know some folks that own and drive '39 pu's.

That's great. Keep Dearborn in mind. We have a lot of fun at the meets and do a bunch of touring with the V8's at them.

What was the oil pressure problem about?

There is dirt in the pump that jambs the spring. If you have original 39
pumps with bushings you should CARFULLY force the pulley forward. It
has a spring that keeps the seal against the seat. Centrifical force throws
the pulley forward and the spring returns it. Move the pulley forward
about 20 or 25 times until it freely returns. On the replacement bearing
type pumps the shaft don't move, if one of them sticks it's usually a bad
bearing that will freeze tight. G.M.

I am just across the river in NJ. Maybe we can link up at a local car show.
