Re: Steering Wheel Covers

Google truck steering wheel cover. I see some old style laced on that claim to fit 16" - 18" wheels.

Superior 58-0470B Truckline Sport Grip Steering Wheel Cover is one of them.

Re: Accelerator foot rest

As I remember the aftermarket rest I purchased for my '38 was taller than the stock one that was on my truck. The foot rests are kind of goofy looking but they actually work great. I get a lot of...

Re: Wilwood front disc kit 140-14190

FYI: Last year when I replaced my rear brakes from BB's I was told by BB's that Speedway was using their backing plates but not the BB's drums.

Re: Wilwood front disc kit 140-14190

I used Wheelsmith 15" rims and the Willwood D52 brake cylinders on my truck (they are on a IFS hub). I had to use wheels spacers and round over the top edges of the Willwood cylinder with a file or...

Re: Fords in Fall 2020

Too late for 2020 as the leaves are already off the trees here in central Minnesota. Woke up to 2" of snow on the ground a couple of days ago.

Re: ANOTHER Fake '40 Coupe....Mart Was Spot-on!

Don't know about you guys but that don't sound like no flathead to me. The amazing thing is some kid sitting at his home computer can now make videos like this.

Re: First 100 Miles!!! Or a touch more. My '39 Pickup

The '38 and '39 are considered the "barrel nose" AKA "horse collar" trucks.

Re: Tailgate anti-rattle balls (1938 SW)

You may want to try a hole saw. Looks like most of the small ones have a diamond grit cutting edge. Not sure how that would work but if the ball was frozen it might just be the ticket. A regular...

Re: First 100 Miles!!! Or a touch more. My '39 Pickup

Very nice! Of course I'm partial to the '38/'39' trucks. I do think you should add addition lighting if you are going to be doing much driving. I have L and R tail/brakes lights and people were not...

Re: Clutch

I don't know how your '36 frame compares to my '38 pickup but in mine the '39 clutch pedal bottoms out on the frame when fully depressed. This limits the pedal travel and thus limits the...

I have blasted aluminium and then gone over it with fine wire brush in a drill motor and that gave it a look very sim to that NOS photo above.

Re: Question about 1938 Ford pickup

You can see the '38 grill sitting in the cab but you can't tell for sure what year the truck is from the grill. Ford made the '39 grills with mounting holes for both the '39 latch catch and the...
