Re: 1938 Tonner Bed Floor Question

I’ll second/third/fourth the suggestion to contact Mr. Wagner. I visited the Benson Ford library to do some of my own research several years ago and was told that Mr. Wagner volunteers there on...

Re: 46 Convertible drawings

A start would be found in the 1944-1952 Ford Body Parts Catalog. It has the convertible schematic body drawing with labeled parts groupings. Page 466 is the schematic. These old books can be found...

Re: Ford Truck V8 1937 stake and wheelbase 157

These blueprints of the 1937 might help. Stu

Re: 1940 ford sportsman?

Gary - is 1941 close enough if nobody has the specs for 1940? I have the handbook with all that for 1941. Stu

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

No, those are the ones to avoid. The Ford and Dodge based 1960s/70s/80s Class As are the ones to look for. The GM based Class As use wheels having a 10 lug x 7.25” pattern. All 10 lugs are used on...

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

The two pictured are Firestone RH-5° widow makers. Please find replacements. The best replacement is the 22.5” that is the tubeless replacement for the 20” tube type. I know of at least one...

Please check your email, Gary. I sent pics of an article from the current month’s V8 Times with early Sportsman concept drawings. Hope the iPhone pics are clear enough to let you read the article. ...

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

Yet to be determined here is whether Bob’s 1951 truck has widow maker RH-5° wheels or the safer locking side ring style wheels. Most likely the truck is not an F-1 or F-2, which would have one piece...

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

An RH-5° widow maker side ring mounts to the rear of the base rim. If Bob has an F-3 and airs the wheels while mounted on the truck the ring will explode inward toward the truck and be held captive...

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims

You really need to tell us more in your question. Are these stock wheels? No stock F-1 or F-2 had multi-part stock 16” wheels in 1951. ALL stock 17”, 18”, and 20” multi-part F-3 through F-6 wheels...

Re: 17 inch split rim replacment

Right, alternatives that we’ve detailed more fully over on FTE are the 17.5” x 5.25” (Budd 70720 or 73240) and 19.5” X 5.25” (Budd 71410) true tubeless wheels that were introduced in 1956 and...

Re: 17 inch split rim replacment

The brake drums on a 1953 M250 will be 12” Bendix style. Any pre 1996 16” F-250 wheel will get you by, but to keep the original appearance the wheel to find is the 16” x 6.00” that was an option in...

Re: 46 pick up 1/2 or 3/4 ton?

There was no post war 3/4 ton before the F-2/F-3 of 1948. The 8 x 6.5” pattern too was first introduced in 1948. Stu

Re: Split rim, wide 5?

I wouldn’t have been able to help, Gary. Except to confirm they are special. The Marmon-Herrington connection here interests me too. Wheels like this now show up for which there is no reference,...

Re: Split rim, wide 5?

Searched the books but don’t find it. The Goodyear split ring/rim combined with the wide five pattern isn’t listed anywhere. Probably means it was a military wheel which didn’t normally appear in...

Re: 1941 1/2 Ton dimensions?

Re: Marmon Herrington info and snogo

I agree that the same size wheels and tires must be on both ends. I should have said it myself. As I said above, I look for 18” wheels and have some 20s I’d swap for yours if yours are in good...

Re: Marmon Herrington info and snogo

I’ll suggest that the same transfer cases were used throughout the 1940s and early 1950s on the bigger models. I’ve seen the same two speed cases and mounting hardware as I have in my 1952 truck...

Re: Marmon Herrington info and snogo

Just means he’d have to swap both front and rear ring/pinion sets to the optional 5.14/1 ratio. Chuck has NOS 5.14 sets on hand to my understanding. Otherwise the truck no doubt has the stock...

Re: Marmon Herrington info and snogo

Welcome to our group of Marmon-Herrington owners. The SnoGo trucks are similar in most ways to the bulk of Ford 1.5 ton trucks which were factory converted by M-H in Indianapolis. The primary...
