Re: identify this panel delivery

For me the quickest identifier is the rounded corner of the reveal as compared to the squared corner on the ‘33 and ‘34 Panel Deliveries.

Re: King pins on ‘35

The often mentioned quality of Speedway parts gets tiresome, and really, do we know where anyone sources the merchandise they sell?
I just mic’ed three k/p sets, an old Lion set for ‘35-‘36, a brand...

Bracket ID

A question was posed on the HAMB regarding these parts that appear to be bumper brackets, my WAG is they may be for the rear bumper on a 1936 Standard Panel Delivery. Can anyone positively ID them ?...

Re: USPS damage in shipping

Kube gets it, it is mostly about how things are packaged. If it rattles in the carton it’s not good enough. Something heavy would need plywood, at the very least, inside a carton so it can’t burst...

Re: 1933 ford Victoria

Compare the photos to see the difference. The early ‘33 fenders have the appearance of the Model A or ‘32 fenders, they have a more open look.

Re: Is Jim Gordon's Early Ford Parts in Rosemead, CA still open?

I know Gene Scott, RIP, is deceased but I do not recall when he passed. I had always heard that Jim Gordon was his son in law, and I would expect at least 20 years between their ages, so it could...

Re: Looking for a place in NJ that does vibratory tumbling

Re: Why not a new casting

I really don’t want to speak for Tod but I don’t think he’s online much to do so for himself. He has said in the past he is a one man band and hasn’t found a good candidate that can help him. In...

Re: USPS damage in shipping

I always get USPS MO’s cashed at my bank and have yet to have an issue of any kind. Easy to do and I can get cash instantly or have the funds deposited into my checking account.

Re: 1932 sport coupe

I’d be concerned whether or not the radius of those frames matched the Sport Coupe cowl. For dimensions check Speedway Motors online listings, they give measurements.

Re: 1932 sport coupe

Don’t know for sure but those may be fabricated by Trautwein. Trautwein makes a quality frame but there may be issues with rust starting from the inside. Apparently that is caused by acid not being...

Re: spindles

As rich b said, yes they can be used on a Model A axle, but be advised that the ‘37-‘41’s (also known as round backs) use a king pin 5 1/2” long and the ‘42-‘48 spindles (square back) take a 6” long...

Re: Mallory sbc to 8BA 4 lobe cam issues

Chris, I believe your Voltmaster was introduced in the late ‘60’s, early ‘70’s and it was the replacement for a number of other Mallory coils. Previously there was another coil designated as the...

Re: Mallory sbc to 8BA 4 lobe cam issues

Mallory distributors will have an M in the model designation, as in YCM if it is an original MagSpark version, and there will also be a small round tag that says MagSpark. But I think any Mallory...

Re: Rockwell of Ford head stud nuts

I bet the plating shop is concerned with hydrogen embrittlement and failure of the nuts, give then a call russcc, and see what they say.
