Re: New Addition

Before I got "Rusty" -my '39 p/u- I had several '40 1 1/2 ton flatbeds. They were a real PITA to drive so I sold them off to buy a p/u. At first I wasn't a fan of barrel nose p/u's but they really...

Re: Alternative to split rims on 1.5 ton trucks?

A shock wrench or slapper as we used to refer them to them when I was a mechanic for a local dairy will solve any lug removal issues. I changed many a 20" bud wheel on 2 ton or larger refer trucks on...

Re: Over Kill On The Kill

Here's what I did for my '39 p/u. Not a show truck by any means and it works for me. Pull the switch back to shut it off and push it forward to turn it on - sort of like activating an emergency brake.

Re: Steering Wheel Covers

Renfrew hockey stick grip tape was my solution to the cracked wheel in my '39 p/u. Isn't sticky like electrical friction tape.

Re: 1940 3/4 ton fuel tank and seat

I believe the seat is the same as a p/u. The p/u has a riser that takes the place of the under seat tank found on the big trucks. The wood bottom of the bottom seat has 3 indented holes that align...
