Re: non split split rims ????

Yes, you had the good fortune of having Goodyear style split locking ring/rim combos. Our original poster is not so fortunate. Studying his picture doesn’t settle the question of which ring/rim...

Re: non split split rims ????

The You Tube shows how it’s done on the Firestone RH, but won’t be too helpful on an AR. One difficulty for me is seeing clearly on my phone what you have here. Deflating the tire and breaking the...

Re: non split split rims ????

Okay, another possibility is the Kelsey Hayes or Firestone “AR” three piece. There would be a very thin locking ring down between the base rim and side ring. Generally found on GM trucks, but I...

Re: Max Tyre Size for M47 Pickup 16" Rim

Re: Max Tyre Size for M47 Pickup 16" Rim

A 235/85R16” has a minimum rim width standard of 6.00”. These would be appropriate only if you have non-stock wider rims. If you have stock 4.50” rims even your current 215/70R16s are over spec. ...

Re: 20 inch rims

Yes, Ford was consistent with itself on the use of an 8.25-20” tire on an old 7” (new 5.00”) rim width. Just inconsistent with the industry as a whole. Given that the member’s truck is a 1941 there...

Re: 20 inch rims

Before giving an answer to this question, we need to know how the 6” width measurement is determined. Are you measuring across the rim lips, or down inside between rim lips. It matters. The...

Much appreciated. I have a friend that would be interested in adding a half ton project to his job jar. Stu

Re: marmon herrington F-1 trucks

Your original question was focused on the half tons. The only effort I know of that’s been made to archive half tons was Mark Mossell’s registry of the surviving Rangers. Of the 50+ that were...

Re: marmon herrington F-1 trucks

Marmon-Herrington upgraded the F-2 to the F-3’s 6800 lb specs. There were none-the-less small differences between the models, such as wheels and rear shocks. I have a lot more F-3s archived than...

Re: marmon herrington F-1 trucks

No records exist. But years ago M-H gurus Chuck Mantiglia and Don Chew got together to compare notes. Chuck told me they agreed that about 200 half tons per year were converted.

Since my main...

Re: Jailbar Ranch

I’m seeing the likelihood of needing to add a second Tonner as a bed and fender donor. Can’t have just one. Stu

Re: 1938 85 1.5 ton gearing

The calculator I’ve used bases speed on engine RPM. Guessing 2500 rpm with the 5.14 and 34” tires it gives 49.22 mph. Stu

Re: 1938 85 1.5 ton gearing

Agree, that’s not gonna light up the road. The 38 mph limit is no doubt a feature of probably having the 6.67/1 final drive ratio. Mentioned above is the 4.11/1 custom ring and pinion set that...

Re: 1938 85 1.5 ton gearing

Probably the simplest means of increasing road speed is the use of the 8.25-20” tires. BUT, be alert to whether they can be safely mounted on your stock wheels. If you now have 6.50-20” tires it is...
