Re: Rumble Seat Hinges part 2

Oh ya! It’s been a few years but I think I remember that challenge. As I recall I fished them in with something. It may have been a boxed end wrench with tape on the bottom to hold the nut in. Keep...

Re: new to the model a/forum

That’s a pretty straight ‘ol Pickup! Being 6’2” and a wee bit more than 230 lbs I was struggling to figure out how I would ever drive my ‘30 when it was done. I’d shortened the clutch and break...

Re: headers vs duals

No problem using the original manifolds and clearing the steering box. Only a matter of a good pipe bender.

Re: 30-31 cab questions

I reread your post. I don’t think anyone produced the upper part of the cab, only the portion below the molding. My upper portion was quite beat up and took multiple hours to smooth it out. If yours...

Re: 30-31 cab questions

Howel’s used to produce this part. When I restored my ‘30 CCP cab a little over a year ago all they had were ‘28-29. I found one on EBay which was the only one available. When it arrived it had been...

Re: Hard to move (sell) heavy items

If you’re in a Fastenal area their shipping is very reasonable. My experience has been that the weight is more reasonably priced than dimension.

Re: Length Limit for Priority Mail Shipping

At any rate, Priority Mail hasn’t been, of late. It took three weeks for a small box from Carpenter’s to arrive in Wisconsin.

Re: Rear Hub Torque

“Snug” equals 90-100 lbs. Bearings, keys and nuts are new. Taper well cleaned with wax and grease remover. Plus new taper sleeves. What else is recommended if the sleeves are temporary but switch out...

Re: Rear Hub Torque

I pulled both hubs again. One snugged up nicely with only the addition of a sleeve. The other required both a sleeve and one additional axel nut. Thank you to all who provided input!

Rear Hub Torque

After reading here that rear hubs should be torqued to 100 ft lbs I decided to check mine. Both were substantially less. I torqued up the Coupe with good results. However, on the pickup it moved the...

Re: Gleaner engine pictures??

May I assume this power unit was on a Gleaner combine? Gleaner used Ford engines on self propelled combines in the 50’s and perhaps beyond. As I recalled we had a ‘58 with a fixed grain head.

Re: Simple to make and use Toe-In gauge

I think you did a great job. Thanks for sharing! An old alignment man told me to roll the car back and forth at least two car lengths after each adjustment and check again. Makes sense with these old...

Re: Kick panel with document storage

Depends on the body style what material the document pocket was. Commercial vehicle pockets were steel. I think Synders have them.
