I'm still getting caught up on the progress of this thing. I had all the frame parts powder coated and I got it back about a month ago. If any of you guys see anything that looks wrong let me know. I'm still learning.

Does anyone have any pictures of the fuel line location from fuel tank to engine. I'm wanting to make sure I run it correctly.
Thank you

Here's a couple of pics of a '40 chassis (essentially the same thing) that will give ya an idea of the path from the tank, to where the hard line stops at the firewall area. It basically runs inside the main frame rail, and is clamped securely every so often. The rest of the way is easy to run, up the firewall. Use STEEL lines. What you see in the pics is copper-coated steel......NOT copper lines. Pay no attention to the copper vacuum lines going to the Columbia O/D. Hope this helps! Thanks to KUBE for the pics of one of his beautiful restorations. DD

Here's one last pic to show the rest of the run. Note the copper-colored line at lower right of pic, near frame/firewall junction. It heads UPward, then turns horizontally to meet with the soft line, which ends-up at the fuel pump. This is all STOCK '40. DD

Congrats. on starting your restoration. I know some like to see the original scratched up paint just waxed and kept as is. However by the looks of your frame work, you are going to make it look like new and i think it will look great. Mine took 10 years to complete. Lots of help on "The Barn".

Near as I can tell there is only one problem with this truck.....that being that this truck is not in my garage. Oh, how jealous I am. What an outstanding specimen of a truly great year of Fords finest work. Best of luck in what appears to be a first class build.

I'm sorry I don't have any extra horns. My truck appreciates all the nice things you guys have said. I told her and she blushed. I do have these two parts and I'm not sure where they go, any ideas?

Hi Everyone. Those are splash pans. Mount from underneath. The pointy one with the hole goes under the radiator. The other one is one of the sides. I think there are three. Almost all of them look like yours, off the car, stacked with the battery cover, cuz when on they prevent access to dizzy for example. Still, they help cooling, and water coming from below onto the engine bits.

Another question, sorry I've got so many. In regards to the running boards on the truck, were they just painted from the factory or is there some type of cover that should be over the running board. If there's something that goes over it what would it be?

1stford, I don't have one of those beauties, but my impression is that the running boards on a '36 'commercial' 1/2 ton are painted with nothing on top.

Does anyone happen to have any pictures of the above mentioned splash gaurds installed? I can't figure out where they bolt up to.

Thanks.

You're doing a great job and I'm very happy to see that you're continuing with a flathead, a 39 transmission and sticking with an original type build. Very nice work - can't wait to see when it is done.

Yes you are doing a great job, The only problem that I can see is you have put the brake pedal on the wrong side. HaHa. Tony.
