Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,


Originally the distributor plastic housings of the A and B were different, but only slightly so as it pertained only to the opening on the side for the manual spark advance arm on a Model...

Re: caveat emptor

Sheldon,

Re: 1932 standard

As deuce lover indicates, all '32 instrument panel knobs were dark brown, be they on a standard or deluxe model passenger car, commercial vehicle, or big truck. Black knobs of the same shape as the...

Re: caveat emptor

Sheldon,


Thanks, but it is neither of those and not one that I posted. I'll send it to you and maybe you will have better luck posting it.

Here's the link to the ebay listing, which has more photos and they are revealing. https://www.ebay.com/itm/174972727428

Re: Need help ID'ing this intake manifold....

But wait, there's no oil filler tube opening in the manifold in photo in #1 and it looks to be cast iron and not aluminum. Super late '33 truck for use with pre-job #1 '34 fuel pump and stand with...

caveat emptor

While the practice of implying something "is" when it "isn't" when it comes to seller's descriptions of the item for sale isn't uniquely found on ebay, a very recent ebay example is just one more...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,

With respect, I am trying very hard to imagine what would bring you to conclude that hooking up all four spark plugs to the #1 and #4 connections on the distributor body as in your first...

Re: '32 Roadster Rumble Seat Frame Mounting???

Given the limitations of fiberglass compared to steel, what you've devised should work. On the original set up, the tabs at the top of the seat spring pointed down so the weight of the back cushion...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Tinker,


With respect, an early '32 motor-driven has nothing in common with a '36 or any other vibrator horn. It is truly is powered by a little electric motor and that's all that is inside it...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Sheldon,

Thanks; I am not surprised that 12 volts would eventually destroy the motor of the horn.

Re: Minimum amount of gas in 1932 tank.

The most reliable gas gas gauge ever, a ruler or something comparable, but only on '32s and some '33-'34s as once the filler tube is curved it's not an option.
