Re: Another loss

I always made a point of stopping at his Hershey spot to chat. A great guy always willing to dispense wisdom based on his many years of driving his 32 Tudor. He will be missed.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Sugarmaker,
That is one nice truck. The condition is amazing considering that dump trucks usually have a very hard life.

Re: ID Issue with a 1932 Ford

Tom,
The serial number just in front of the firewall foot is often very hard to read since it is somewhat exposed to the elements. It is usually very close to the inside edge of the top flange. If...

Re: 1932 V/8 Upper Hoses

Another resource to find hoses for modified applications is the downloadable Gates catalog. It has dimensions and photos of every molded hose they make.

Re: Hydraulic brake questions - 1932 Coupe

The pedals and the pedal bracket are not 32 Ford passenger. (The bracket looks to be from a big Truck, possibly a 32 - 34 with a modified brake pedal. A non-traditional approach to converting to...

Re: Moving Day

I stripped my B520 13 years ago but am not going to try to beat your record of 43 years before I get it to the paint shop. Good luck!

Re: Source for GL 140 Gear Oil is here.

Sta Lube SL24238 is available on Amazon now for $25 per gallon. NAPA seems to want $37.49 for the same thing. Usually NAPA in-store is cheaper.

Rear Spring Bars

Spring bars go on the bottom of the spring and the U-bolts go through them. Several years/models will work. The holes for the U-bolt should be 3.5" apart. Send me a PM if you have some. Thanks. John

Re: Inner Tubes for Radials?

Hopefully, the person will also not need to make an unplanned "sharp turn" at speed to avoid debris in the road or a vehicle pulling out in front of him/her. When the tire bead comes off the rim...

Re: Inner Tubes for Radials?

V8 Bob has the straight skinny on the history and purpose of the safety bead on the rims. One of Chrysler's many innovations.

Re: Removing shackle shells, KRW BV-121 & V-170

The V-170 shackle stud remover is marginal at best in removing the shell after the core has been removed. The T-handle of the V-170 is simply unable to supply enough force. The much stouter BV-121...

Re: S curve radiator hoses, warning .

The 20151 hoses are 49-51 Ford lower hoses. They work well in some 32 installations - where the needed outlet/inlet offset is about 1.5" or so.

Re: 8ba engine

Ron,
I agree that the Autothermic pistons are great for a stock rebuild. But as far as I know, they are not currently manufactured for flatheads. I'd like to be proven wrong on that.

Re: 32 spring bushings

Randall,
Was there enough length in the threaded part to drill a 1/8" cotter hole, for a castellated nut, as in the original drilled ones? The undrilled ones are shorter so it seemed to me that a...

Re: transmission case lube

Re: Misery loves company

I just spent an hour today looking for a small part I know I have but can't seem to find. Time to order another one. Fortunately, it is relatively inexpensive. Not the first time this has happened.
