Re: Perfect work bench

It could have been that guy. I heard that at one time in the past he collected about 20 very early Briggs and Stratton air cooled engines, many with exposed overhead valves. Oh look, a pipe wrench!

Re: Fords in Fall 2020

Re: 49 Ford F1 project. What am I getting into?

Look into a wilwood 'pull type' slave cylinder. I just installed one on a diesel conversion and it solved a lot of problems.

Re: Perfect work bench

The part I get is "how much for that hammer?" I have collected four of those type of screwdrivers over the years. That hammer is a beautiful thing!

Re: 1940 3/4 ton fuel tank and seat

I agree! I could get some seat pictures in the morning. Can we see a few pics of the whole truck? I love the 40-41 big trucks.

Somebody needs this

I was goofing off this Saturday morning and thought I would help a barner in Ohio find an F2 pickup box. I have found some dandys on CL as they were made into a utility trailer. Anyhow, this showed...

Re: f2 truck bed

You need to check craigslist for trailers. I still see a lot of them in side yards etc made from old truck boxes. I will keep my eyes peeled, but shipping from here would be tough on the wallet!

Re: Ford Barn intro

I'm with the rest of them. Looks like a nice project and don't over do it. They are a great truck. The 4 speed crash box is actually silky smooth when you get the feel of it. Two thumbs up from Orcas...

Re: Electric wiper conversion

I think the kits are a good idea. I tried to save money by installing 2 electric 79.00 wiper motors like you see in a boat windshield or in a backhoe cab. A lot of swearing and butchery and in the...

Re: Marvel Classic Motor Oil

Re: 36 Can't Stop The Oil Pan Drain Plug Drip

Couldn't agree more. What an amazing material. Oil seals, accelerator pumps. I used it for a rod bearing 20 years ago for a one lung engine on a Bean spray pump.
