Re: Brake backing plate ID

To my eye the black ones look identical to the green one in every detail.

Re: Building a late 32 driveshaft

Duke, I have never has the 10 to 6 adaptor so can't say. Others may comment on the axle, the most important thing is that the keyways and threads are in good condition, the hubs are lapped in and the...

Re: Building a late 32 driveshaft

I've used a couple of early 32 driveshafts to make later V8 32 driveshafts. If you can get a 10 spline to 6 spline adaptor it is easier, but if you only have the 6 spline coupler you need to make up...

Re: Vintage ford cloth patches

The patches would not have been made by Ford, but by apparel suppliers. It would be very difficult to date them. Are certain ones rare or collectable?

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris.
You can't take the pulley off. You will need to raise the motor to slip the belt in, or remove the U bolts.
I have no 4 cylinder experience, but am just speaking in general terms. As built,...

Re: When does the plug fire?

Pete, think of the coil being charged up when the points are closed. When they open the coil releases the built up charge to whichever plug is waiting for it.

Re: One piece driveshaft - '38 Ford?

Would a Mercury axle fit a 38? Or would the Mercury driveshaft be too long and must have been shortened somewhere?

Re: Is my condenser sick?

Rag, I have 4 flatty powered cars on the road at the moment. They all have points but not one has a condenser.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Good work, Chris. I was once told, if you want something doing, ask a busy person. You personify that statement. You have a lot of things going on, but you are sure getting that old truck project...

Re: Is it 6 Volt or not?

You could look at the voltage regulator. If it looks relatively new it might have 12V or even 16V written on it.

Re: Question on flathead oil canister filter housing

That is correct. It limits the amount of oil that is allowed to flow to the BYPASS filter. If too much were allowed to flow it would reduce the amount of oil available to flow to the bearings etc....

Re: Burned '32 PU came to new home today

Newc, the damage appears (purely from looking at the pictures) to be relatively superficial. While I am pleased that the truck is being repaired by a barner and we are able to watch the progress, It...

Re: Removing locking hubcaps, without key (1932)

Are these caps very valuable? I ask because wire wheels can be had relatively cheaply. If it was imperative that the cap was removed in one piece, then the end of the wheel center could be cut off...

Re: Removing locking hubcaps, without key (1932)

When trying any key in the lock, wobble it around like crazy while trying to turn it. Older worn keys are good for this.

Re: 1940/1941 ford cab hole question

I think that's where the fender attaches if the cab is used on a bigger truck than a 1/2 ton.

Re: Electrical verification 32 Ford

Does the generator need polarising? When I did my first start on my 32 I had a big draw on the ammeter. I polarised the generator and it was ok after that and charged normally. I can't explain what...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

That's great. Sometimes the paperwork can be a nightmare so getting that squared away is a win.

Re: Disc Brakes V Bendix Brakes-Which performs best??

I'd say stick with what you have and make sure they are in good condition. After all, the brakes you have are used as an upgrade on earlier models. A booster won't make them work any better, just...
