Re: 1934 inner fender question.

Graham,


I've noticed the single hole version of that pan, including on NOS pans. I always pass them up as my '33s use the version with two clinch nuts attached to each side. I've no...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,

In response to your question, the left side of the engine compartment is pretty much as it was the day it was built allowing for decades of use. It has the early version of the intake...

Re: Difference between '33 and '34 truck grilles

The '32 is similar to the '33 regarding the stamped raised areas surrounding the Ford oval and opening for the radiator neck, but not as deep given that it is mounted completely vertical rather than...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,


You should be able to withdraw the key in the full clockwise position which occurs when the steering column shaft is locked in place.

Re: '32 4 cyl truck radiator?

I agree that it looks like a '32 4-cylinder radiator, which except for the late-in-the-model-year release through service of a radiator with an extra row of tubes largely intended for use on big...

Re: 1939 ford deluxe accelerator return spring location/installation

It should end up as in V8COOPMAN's photo. It isn't an easy chore, but it goes much easier if you start with the inner open loop in place on top of the stud attached to the firewall, then you can use...

Re: Vintique 32-36 Open car wiper arm kit

The original was 3/4" o.d. and the hole size was 21/64".

Re: Vintique 32-36 Open car wiper arm kit

Robert is one of those who prefer sticking to the originals wherever possible.

Re: Vintique 32-36 Open car wiper arm kit

While they look the same, it's not the same washer (o.d. too big and i.d. too small).

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

I had noticed that the left side outside door handle had been replaced. What you show in your latest photo is the original version, which you've now reinstalled. If any of your inside handles need...

Re: Where can I get a 1936 spare tire mount gasket/Pad

Insulating washers were used when the spare wheel served as the radio antenna, although that was normally on the open car body types.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

To add to Model51 last sentence, given the relatively late release of the V8 engines for installation in big trucks, of the 74,978 '32 model big trucks produced world wide, only 3,682 were V8 powered.

Re: Eddie Meyer Intake

Judging from the size of the openings in deuce lover's photo and Doug's counsel that the manifold was not intended to be used with the separate risers, the intention was clearly for carburetors to be...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Sheldon,


Ford designated them pans (engine) R.H. (BB-6775) and L.H. (BB-6776), not to be confused with pan (oil) assembly, basic part number 6675. I refer to them as engine splash pans. ...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Unfortunately they sold quickly and they were good ones. I guess they are a little bit like the radiator caps, not in price, but in availability, despite over 222,000 having been produced. There's...

The dash/instrument panel shown in the third photo is the correct one for either a '33 or '34 closed cab, be it pickup or big truck.

Re: 1933/34 fuel gauge air line routing thru firewall.

Originally, the '33-'34 V8 fuel gauge air line was routed through the same hole in the firewall as the main wiring harness.

Re: 1932 transmission prefix 18-oooooo question

The '32 transmission case and input shaft will mate just fine with a '36 LB or non-LB or any other flathead V8 engine of the period. Ignore the '32 clutch and flywheel and use those intended for the...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Early and mid-year '32 commercial vehicles and big trucks did not have any air cleaner or silencer as standard equipment, only the passenger car fours (and V8s) were so equipped. The...
