Re: 33/34 glove box radio mount question

There were two different suppliers of those radios (Grigsby-Grunow and Zenith), each with unique characteristics and it is likely that their outer front covers were unique as well. In other words,...

Re: 32 spring bushings

NOS studs are found in both forms, the original 1933 form with long threads with a hole for a cotter pin and the later production/service version with shorter threaded end studs and no cotter pin...

Re: Pitman arm question

That's why there are elongated holes in the '33-'34 frame for the sector housing attachment to accommodate two different column angles.

Re: Q: 34 Ford 3W which REAR window regulator

Re: David G's 1932 book

Re: Pitman arm question

Initially the '33 sector arm had a bolt-in stud, at least on Canadian-built '33s (although the part number forged onto the arm is not uniquely Canadian) which would be ideal for your purposes,but...

Re: 1935 Ford ignition switch

Somewhat off topic, but that helpful diagram that Don posted is slightly different for '35-'36 phaetons and roadsters. The bolts attaching the housing to the dash insert from the bottom, not from...

Re: 33/34 Steering shaft info

Re: 32 spring bushings

Beware of any NORS bushings with rubber linings as likely the rubber has deteriorated and they will quickly fail.

Re: 32 spring bushings

That torsional effect is lost with the modern plastic/rubber three-piece bushings.

Re: Are these early Roadster repro handles?

If you are thinking in terms of the inside door handles used on '33-34 phaetons and roadsters or as Tom suggests, '32-'34 station wagons, the answer is no, they are not reproductions of those handles...

Re: 32 spring bushings

I use NOS ones (the '33 and up version lined with asbestos), but they are getting to be very scarce, especially the early form with the longer threads and holes for cotter pins.

Re: Woodie Auction today in Auburn, IN

I'd work hard to find room for that '50 Monarch with its less busy front end.

Re: '32 Model B Transmission, thrust washer

It looks like you are trying to install the thrust washer with the thrust washer key in place. That won't work. The washer has to be in place in the groove in the main shaft and then rotated to...

Re: 32 spindle bolts

Pete,


You are badly mistaken, among other things, it is a STOCK restoration forum. Perhaps you were thinking of the HAMB forum.

Re: Japanese parts book,

The Ford facility there at that time was located in Yokohama, not surprisingly on the waterfront with its own pier for unloading it imports.

Re: Q: 34 Ford 3W which REAR window regulator

Dave,


A challenge, yes, but in terms of operation, it's no different than the door windows on '32-'34 pickups and panel deliveries and the quarter windows of '32 Tudor sedans, all of which have...
