Re: WANTED: 30-31 Commercial Cowl

Thanks, but shipping would probably make it cost-prohibitive. Really need to find one in Southern New England - something I could pick up. You might be looking for a while if you limit yourself to that small of an area. I just shipped 3 engine blocks on a pallet and it was less than $150.00 Certain...

Re: Front radius rods question

I think scrapping it is a good plan. Lots of good axles and radius rods available.

Re: Front radius rods question

Ouch. Yes I believe that they are the same. With damage like that I would be looking really hard at the axle to make sure it is straight.

Re: pics.....

Your phone is taking the pictures in a size that is too large for posting. Try a google search on how to reduce the size of photos on your phone. I've never tried to reduce photo sizes on my Iphone. Always transferred them to my lap top to do it.

Re: 28 AA brake adjust advice

Arching breaks: I just did my fronts. Did it with a 1-1/2" sanding drum from 'Menards' mounted in the drill press. Took a plate of steel, mounted to the table on sq. tubes so it slides, with a 1/4 inch bolt to adjust it to correct distance from pivot point ( 5/16" dowel pin) to sanding drum. Measur...

Re: 28 AA brake adjust advice

Did you have the pads arched to match each drum? Woven linings need to be used with steel drums and composite pads with cast iron drums. Sounds like you have the arms adjusted correctly at 15 degrees. Do not shorten brake rods to pull them past center. You will loose braking power doing that. To me ...

Re: Information on 1928 seat support

No they are not too complicated to make. I made one to replace a broken one on my truck. Does anyone have one loose that you can take measurements off of for Brian?
If you don't get some measurements Brian let me know and I will pull my seats and try to get some accurate ones for you.

Re: Ford Barn

Yes. It and the HAMB are down. They are having troubles. Ryan was hoping to have it up and running today. Must have been a major glitch.

Re: rear view mirror and california registration

Interior one... Hmmm... So if a person has a new truck that has a factory or for that matter an after market solid box that is taller than the cab and totally blocks the rear window they are still going to require an interior mirror?? I'm thinking not. They would have to say the side mirrors are ade...

Re: rear view mirror and california registration

I thought that trucks came standard with a rear view mirror mounted on the drivers side door post. I didn't think that a inside rear view mirror was offered. I would get a door post mounted mirror installed at a minimum on the drivers side. I added one on the passenger side of mine. Really like havi...

Re: 2 SPEED HIGH LOW

Front down is high. Perhaps your floor board has shifted or such and is preventing the pedal from moving full travel.

Glad your getting the truck out and on the go again.
