Re: Sheared teeth on pinion gear...

44 stamped on the case.


A couple hundred or less for stock ring and pinion plus labor seems pretty reasonable. Wish I had a lift, of course.

Re: Is the brake master cylinder filled through a hole in the floor?

I meant a pain back when it was new:)
It's totally dry, but I don't see where the brake fluid has gone. It last had plates in 1985.

Oil return line plugged?

1950 F1

Just from cranking several times in an effort to start the truck, I've got oil coming out past the seal on the oil canister lid.

Re: Whats the secret to removing the oil filter?

Re: Whats the secret to removing the oil filter?

Tubman,
Where in Montana did you get the Merc engine from the idiots?

Just curious.
I like to keep track of as many idiots as I can:)

Re: 1950 F1 door won't open...

I had to sacrifice the cracked wing window. Widows rolled down now to prevent locking myself out again.


Thanks for all the suggestions!

Re: 1950 F1 door won't open...

Thanks everyone!



I still need to get in the cab. Windows are up, wing windows locked. All the glass is good except passenger wing window.

Do I break in? Are there slim jim options?...
