Re: 34 pickup overall dimensions

Mine measures about 68" wide, 71" tall and 14'-8" long. I think you are in good shape.

Re: 1936 Pickup bed floor question

Back to the bumps. My 34 has them to allow for the protruding bumps in the sides of the truck bed which allow space for the shocks to function.

Re: 34 door help

I just finished the doors on my 34 pickup. I replaced the skin from just below the ribs down. The ribs held the shape well so I could butt weld the new piece in. No warp at all.

Re: Flathead running cold

Captain obvious here. You do have the stat right side up (or in)? Also it is possible that a new stat can be defective. I'd try another.

Re: Anti freeze

My mother (born 1918) told me that her father, who was an auto dealer in Hartford, CT in the 20's used to run water year round but would drain it in the evening in cold weather and replace it with...

why wire wheels?

I woke up this morning thinking about the wheels on my 34 Ford pickup. Why did they use wire wheels on the early vehicles, as opposed to the stamped steel wheels which followed. Was it just...

34 pickup spare tire holder

Does anyone have a picture of what the spare tire attachment looks like. I have the rod and the brace in place, but there has to be another piece that attaches the rod to the wheel. Some sort of...

Re: 34 pickup oil pressure guage

Thank you, Marko39. No plug in the pan, but I have it off, right now so I will add one. Then I'll find a filter.

Does the addition of a filter affect the oil pressure reading, since they both...

Re: 34 pickup oil pressure guage

Marko, your answer gives rise to another question, if I may. There is no oil filter on the engine. What does one use and how do you attach it, if I want to add one?

Re: 34 pickup oil pressure guage

Thank you. Yes I did post it twice. When I saw it I tried to remove one but could not figure out how to do it.
Thanks, again.

Re: 34 pickup, finally back together but....

Wow!! You guys are great! It seems to me that the likely culprit is the soft plug. It fits the observations very well. Right at the bulge in the block. I'll drop the pan again and check it out. ...

34 pickup steering column mount

Is there a spacer that is supposed to be between the column and the dash? I have about a 2"gap. Guess I could loosen the steering box and see if the whole thing would rotate enough to fit.
Thanks....
