It's the crab type that has the wick. The crab type has no facility for an oiler on the end.

Default Anyone miss me?

After the usual winter hiatius, I'm back in the garage trying to finish this up.

I've located a radiator shop local that says they'll be able to take care of my weeping radiator, only along the top tank area. So after removing the rad, I decided to tackle the lower radiator shroud and was able to get sides fixed .

Drivers side inner grill shield patched. Went ahead and fixed the twisted hinge arms for the hood. Lined up nicely with a little tweaking here and there.

Not too sure on easiest/correct order to follow for patching and lining it all up.

My thoughts are: Grill first, hood second, inner fender panels, than fenders and running boards last.

Great work. The pictures make it easy to follow. I'm sure you will be happy with the final outcome. There is a special satisfaction doing it yourself.

I'm following, great work. I'd like to see your salvage of the front fenders from dent removal to rust repair. That is a task in my future as well.

Me too!!! I'm trying to get my metalworking up to a nice standard before tackling anything on the "outside" of the truck. The inner fender panels will be a nice challenge and hopefully give me enough practice before the fender.

Trying to locate a picture of I believe to be a bracket to mount the inner fender well metal to the frame. You can see the holes in the center of the pic.

Whats strange to me is the other side has the same holes etc, but the bracket would need to be on the inside of the fender well compared to on the outside on the drivers side.

Anyone with pics of the 2 sides? With bracket??

1st pic is driverside, 2nd is pass side but by the time I get all lined up the actual fender well curved area sits more on the outside of the frame. This is all by lining everything up to hood.

The front end sheetmetal is supported by a Y-frame (for want of a better description) that bolts in the centre of the front crossmember and has two arms that reach up and then bolt through the inner fender panels, where the panel is reinforced.

I think the two brackets shown are for radiator fitment, maybe not for your application (not sure)

The inner fender panels are not secured in the area shown in your pics.

Thanks for the reply

I was hoping for that. I have the "Y" frame assy. It just seemed strange with the holes lining up as they did.

Nice work. I have a pair that are better than those and I was holding off fixing them up. After seeing these pics I now feel like getting on with fixing them up. Just a little bit at a time, until they're done.

Congrats on a fine job. Great encouragement for others to see that with a few basic skills and a little practice what you can do!

Here is a link to 47 & earlier pickups on the FTE website. There are quite a few builds the guys are sharing on this and the blog for other years too with lots of helpful info.

Thanks appreciate the kind words.

I had been holding off on the repair of the passenger side one due to the heavy rot. Once I started on it and took a small section at a time, it wasn't too bad. Drivers side was only a couple hours.

The practice was worth it, but still am weary of actual exposed repairs.

I'm now debating on running boards, (most repair work not seen) or go for the gold and start the fenders. LOL

Driver side shield is just fine. This one is missing a bit. LOL

Anyone have a actual pic of a 1941 piece??

Maybe a couple tape measures along the sides to help me along.

Thanks

Edit: added pic of sheetmetal pcs. 6775 is what I'm looking for actual original piece.

Running boards next I guess, got lucky and have some friends with a nice sheet metal shop. Scored some nice metal and was able to throw a few bends to help the running boards along.

Did some mockups to see how far off anything is. Had to trim a little on the front quarters I did last winter. Can't complain, will need a little added is all.

Have just a little patchwork on top the brace up front is all. That'll take some time.
