Re: Moving Day

Looking good; probably later than you originally anticipated; but it's there now.

Re: Glove Box Spring Question

I would say that someone possibly replaced a rusted/siezed full width hinge with two smaller tabs. We did the same repair; but added a piece of flat bar between the tabs to catch the two springs on a...

Re: Front brake wheel stud/brake drum question

Studs go thru the flat holes.

No idea on Ford's reason for the other set; plus they are way too tight on the studs.

Had to use a hole saw around the studs a couple times to get stick drums...

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

I got the dimensions from these pictures previously posted by another Ford Barn contributor.

There were pictures posted of an original truck interior and piece appeared to be black and was not...

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

The piece sits against the rear lip of the trunk floor. It is held there by two small wood blocks (as seen in my previously posted picture) secured by screws from the bottom up in the holes I marked...

Re: From bad to worse

I don't think a reading of 6 volts across the resistor under no load is necessarily bad; maybe I'm wrong about the first part; but you do need to figure out why there is no spark when you do have...

Re: 36' rear tail pan repair

There is a piece of wood that covers the back of the trunk; it fits between that groove and two little wood blocks screwed to the holes in the floor (yellow circle) and extends upward to flat area...

Re: Do Bronco drums work on 46-8 hubs?

Which Bronco's had 12" brakes?

I've only seen 10" & 11" and haven't come across a listing for a 12" application.

Re: Two rare 33-34 accessories?

Looks like some other kind of a needle was installed on that speedometer.

Re: HVLP primer gun suggestions & experience

Another option; Northern Tool has a "green" gun that looks like the HF "purple" gun; but has a bigger tip. I used one for spraying Slick Sand and it worked well.

Re: HVLP primer gun suggestions & experience

Just read somewhere, maybe the hamb, where a guy said he drilled out the tip on a HF purple gun and it worked great for some kinda thick frame coating.

Re: Brake drums

Merc wheels work, show enough fin to be cool, and keep the scrub radius under control.

Re: 34 front fenders assembly

This pan was bent up, ripped, and further messed up by a previous "metal-man". Guess we "tuned" it up enough to do the job; but in the wrong place. Anyway the grille fit with no gaps.

Re: 34 front fenders assembly

Thanks for the correction.

Guess I should have researched putting these mangled pieces together.

Re: 34 front fenders assembly

Not like this; the pan actually goes under the fenders; see DavidG's post with the correct info.

Re: Windows install 35 5 Window coupe

This may be totally meaningless; but since the front of the doors & the regulators are the same, and it also appears that the window moves back the same amount to vent this may be a starting point....

Re: Front brake assembly

They are not shown as they part of the backing plates and serviced separately.

Only way to get the cams is to salvage them off another plate; or switch plates.

Only one bad I would fix it; but...

Re: Front brake assembly

If you are missing the actual cams themselves; I don't think you are going to find them anywhere but on another backing plate. Probably easier to just get another backing plate in that case.

Re: Front brake assembly

Other than salvaging the cam and bolt off an old plate; pretty sure the kit sold by seabeemc, as Mart mentioned, is the only game in town.

Old tires make good rollers when working on a multi year project. I have a set of brand new tires on my project car which will be too old and will be replaced when/if I ever get it finished. In this...
