Default 42 1 1/2 tonne- restoration

Hi All,

Thought I would start a post to keep posting slow progress on the truck.

Gearbox is back together and now waiting for a clutch plate.

Quick question, What did the old trucks have on the handbrake handle as a covering? Leather wrap?

Cheers

Corey

Nice work. I’ll defer to the guys having trucks of your era, but on my 51/52s the only covering was paint. Stu

I'm fairly confident Ford painted handles in trucks through 1947 (I could only speculate on younger trucks).

And I'm jealous of your far-less-complex hand brake assembly compared to my COE (the handle mounts in the cab on the left side of the trans and has long rods connected to bell cranks to connect to the brake assembly in the same spot as yours on the right)!

Hey all,

Had my cab blasted and epoxy primed, so now I can start some metal work on it with a good canvas.

Looks like a good start. It appears to be in quite good shape.

Yeah I'm pretty lucky it's not to bad. Still need to put some time into it so I'm happy with it.

HI all,

Just a few pics of what I've been up to , made up a couple of sections to repair the front quarter. Also repairing the back of the cab.

Cheers
