Re: Fan Hub

One thing to consider is that if there is oil in the hub and you set it down on your workbench, one way or the other, the oil will leak out. I do not remember which way, but I think it is if you set...

Re: Running cooler - does this make sense?

Whenever these types of issues come up, I always revert to the following: Does anyone really think that Henry would have wasted money on extra impeller fins and oversize hoses that were not...

On the 40 door, the plate which gives access to the window mechanism is held on by 5 screws and the 41 and later covers are held by 8 screws. My grandfather had several 41 big trucks and none of...

Re: Recomendations for Glass Source

I used Sanderson last year for 3 windows. They were very professional and provided prompt, good service at a reasonable price.

Re: leaky water pump

I would not take the radiator and fan out to replace the pumps. It would be a little easier but I do not think it would be easier enough to offset the trouble of putting the radiator, fan and shroud...

Re: 1934 ignition switch quirky

One trick that helps me when I work on switches is to wrap a narrow piece of tape around the switch to hold the pieces all together when removing the two screws. That way I can get it to my work...

Re: no advice needed, but I am curious

I made two cranks out of electrical ground rods. Two 90 degree bends and a drilled hole in the end for a cross pin and you are done. They are just long enough to clear the bumper.

Re: no advice needed, but I am curious

After some effort to finally get my 59A style V-8 running, which had not run in about 25 years, my friend and I wanted to see if it would start by cranking. We were surprised to see how easily it...

Re: Fram oil supply line suggestions

I used 1/4 inch nickel/copper brake line from NAPA for my oil filter lines. They bend easily without kinking and are easy to use. I am not concerned with originality.

Re: 33 ignition switch

I can only speak for the big trucks. My 34 BB has the plate but my 40 and 47 do not. I have had all three apart. I was surprised to find it in the 34 and it fell out on the floorboard when I took...

Re: What is this truck?

Did the wing windows come on this truck or are they an aftermarket add, or another Australia feature?

Add me to the list of believers. It freed up valves in three of my engines. (Two Ford flathead V-8s and a Case tractor).

Re: oil change

When I was getting my 8BA running, I cranked it by hand, with the spark plugs out, until oil came out of the top boss hole. Very little mess was made that way.
