Re: 40`Ford Brakes Update from 7/10 post

Re: new bottom radiator hose leaking

I have had some leaks before at that area and it ended up being the black water pump gaskets that came with the pumps. It wicks thru the gasket and I thought was the hose leaking.

Re: '32 steering box questions ?

Put Corn Head grease in it . Get it from John Deere tractor dealer. It is very thin with a low melting temp.
