Re: Who is dropping headlight bars out there?

I did the same last year. Put a note and cash in the box. 3 months later I got them back dropped. Always worth the wait.

Re: 1932 Ford Hudson steering box

Here are some pics of the 55-59 Chevy pickup box that I found on the web. I have a friend that has one in a Model A roadster and loves it.

Not sure how the column tube is attached. That may need...

Re: Steering box light switch

I'm curious what bail "C" is?

Is it to use a 28-36 bulb without dimples with a 37-39 bracket?

Thanks,

Neal

Re: Steering binding on '46

Sounds like a worn worm. The worm tends to wear in the center. If he attempted to adjust the lash in the center, it would then make the ends too tight. Replace the worm with a new one.

Re: Split rim, wide 5?

I have one of the split rim wide 5 wheels as well. They are not 39-41 3/4-ton, as those are 16x5 and 16x5.5 standard drop center rims. Those wheels do look like they used the 3/4-ton center.

Re: Lathe with 3 Ford transmissions in Iowa

That's one of the cleanest transmission conversions that I've seen on a machine tool. Looks like it belonged there.

Re: Installing a 32' Roadster Body

A related question. Does the frame welt go front to back all the way on the frame, under the firewall feet, front fenders and gas tank, or just under the body itself.

Thanks,

Re: 1936 Steering Box Replacement

If you use a 37-39 box with original hardware intact, the 36 light switch will clip right in. No adapting required.
