Re: Gas tank sender unit.

They are know as hydrostatic gauges and were used on all Fords from '32 through the '35 models. The more fuel in the tank, the more air pressure in the air and therefore a higher level of red fluid...

Re: 1932 Ford Vicky

It's a shame that all of the window garnish moldings are missing as their replacement will be a real challenge for the buyer given their uniqueness.

Re: Anyone with the "Dirty Word" knowledge

If the doors don't sag or fall off when you open them, that's a good sign as there isn't a single piece of body structure made from steel in the entire body. Good looking in their own way, but it's...

Re: '34 Brake Rod Supports

With respect, I believe that the leather ones were issued during WWII as service parts due the rationing of anything made of rubber. The originals used back starting as a running change late in the...

Re: 1932 Ford Vicky

It looks very restorable to me from the limited photos, but I'm no fan of '32 Victorias as I think that the overall proportions are cramped for want of a longer wheelbase chassis mostly devoted to a...

Re: 1932 "survivoration"

Re: 1932 "survivoration"

With respect, that bracket on the Club website is misidentified. Unlike later station wagons, the '32 version uses the same tail lamp bracket as the later Model A, '32, and later pickup trucks,...

Re: '32 BB rear engine mounts

Thanks! No holes for steady rods; I guess Ford thought truck driver's weren't fussy about NVH.

Re: '32 BB rear engine mounts

Unless it is a super-early BB, each steady rod would have three holes in the center cross member for it if it were there originally. One about 7/8" diameter book-ended by two for 5/16" bolts to...

Re: '32 BB rear engine mounts

If you mean where the back of the transmission is attached to the center cross member, there was only one originally and no other rear engine mounts. It is flat incorporating a ring of rubber that...

Re: Another "greatest generation" passes

May he rest in peace. My cousin also flew the "Hump" in WWII. They don't make 'em liked they used to.

Re: 32 Roadster Cowl Mounting support Q??

The foot does not touch anything hence there's nothing immediately below it. In other words, the shank of the bolt remains exposed; you're missing nothing.

Re: Exhaust pipe diameter

Originally, for both fours and V8s they were 1 3/4" forward of the muffler and 1 1/2" aft of the muffler. The V8 crossover pipe diameter was also 1 1/2".

Re: Helmet distributor an a 4 cylinder

Why not use a Model B distributor to get rid of the Model A spark advance lever? They had centrifugal advance built in. No modifications required other than resetting the initial spark advance.
