Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,


The fact that your fuel gauge tank unit is attached to the bottom of the tank rather than on the top of the tank (like Al's truck's tank) poses a whole different set of challenges. ...

Chris,


I doubt if the copyright is enforceable given the passage of 87 years, if it was specifically copyrighted, given that it was arguably in the public domain and not engineering drawings and...

Re: The Early Ford V8 Club of America - Application Form.

There's a digital-copy-only membership option now available as well which avoids the ever-increasing cost of mailing the hard copies outside of the U.S. for $30 (US).

Re: '32 reinforcing plate 4 slotted frame holes steering

Dale,


I'd like a couple for my '33s, please, if you proceed to make them. While late '32 frames had slotted holes to eliminate the need for separate steering sector housings for commercial...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,

The horn gives back the truck's personality separating it from all of the anemic "beeps" out there.

Regarding the truck's grill shell, if it is truly black (hard to be sure in the...

Re: Fitting Sump

I agree with Ronnieroadster as I use NOS Ford script asbestos front seals with graphite cores on all of my '32-'37 engines and I pretty sure that they are not supposed to be trimmed, but rather...

Re: 1935 Ford radiator to grille brackets

oldandtired, You're correct, those frame gussets/radiator supports are the '36+ version as the '35 version had but one hole for the radiator. I understand that the extra hole was added to...

Re: 34 Ford headlights

Dale,

There are some who think Ford had an employee whose job was to sort the lenses by mold number so that each new car had a matched pair. I seriously doubt if even Augie and Fred Duesenberg...

Re: '35 parking brake floorboard boot plate questions

Originally there was no rubber boot on the hand brake handle.


It is a relatively tight fit on the handle and as a result not prone to rattling.

Re: 34 Ford headlights

A lot depends on the condition of the inner, non-stainless steel ring at the opening of the lamp housings. If they are badly rusted, they can be replaced, but that's a big job if done correctly so...

Re: Narragansett reproductions

Re: 1936 hand brake painting ?

Before as the attached parts weren't painted. The button on top remained chrome plated as in previous model years.

Re: 3 inch peep mirrors

They're not Ford released accessories for '33 or '34 and maybe never. Note that the Ford script is the modern version, slightly more upright with shorter tails, not that of the 1930s and earlier.

Re: No Shipping

And some of the examples are extreme; there's a seller on ebay with two '33-'34 commercial pitman arms who offers local pickup only and they have gone unsold month after month (duh!). We're talking...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,


Typically, today's replacement tires are at least one size larger than the originals. That translates into the tire being mounted higher in the front fender well and narrowing your...

Re: Narragansett reproductions

My experience with Narragansett is with their Lincoln parts. I use Rhode Island Wiring for their reproductions when I've run out of NOS wiring for a particular application.
