Re: D Nuts I think

Thank you 19fordy and rotorwrench. That does look like them. It appears that once the nut is inserted, some flaring tool is used to capture the nut in place. I saw the pictures on google after your...

1934 Pickup Bed end rail

Hi, I am replacing the end rail on my 34 pickup. I have drilled out the rivets and removed the rail. Looking at the tight areas like inside the stake pocket, how does one put the rivets back? There...

Hi,
I've been away for awhile. Med problems, but back at it again. My question deals with the length of the bars in a four bar front suspension system. As I purchased the truck years ago it had a...

On the same topic. With the rear of the T5 supported on a fabricated cross member, and the engine supported off the water pumps, is there any other support needed? I am a little concerned about the...

Re: 1934 rear spring???

I believe you will find that the 34 rear spring has both the usual bow as well as an arc to mount it not directly over the axel mounts. Al K.

Re: 34 p/u grill

Re: Hard Steering 34 pick up

I have heard that if you put the Stainless bearings under the king pins it will improve. Stainless is in the name of the company, and others here will chime in with their correct name. Al K.

Re: Schramm air compressor

Yes, the plugs in the valve pockets need to come out and be replaced with valves. The intake and carbs also need to be replaced too. Mine ran and made air before I put the block in my P/U and mated...
