Re: Spring Bushings

Hand filing was only done on the final stages and it wasn't difficult as long as you have a new replacement bushing to use as a guide. I started at the out board edge and file until the bushing fit and then worked all the tight areas until the bushing could be slid right up to the pivot mount. after...

Re: Spring Bushings

The spring pivots can wear a heck of a lot on the bottom. I flipped my frame up-side down and welded and filed them back to round to fit the new bushings. It took some time but I don't believe they'll ever have to be done again in my lifespan.

Re: Headlights and Horn In-op

I could be wrong but the deck body shown looks like one from an earlier truck (Ford Scrypt)

If you are not hauling any loads, I run with 35 PSI but if I am hauling say sixty sheets of wall board I'll bump it up to 40 PSI on the duallies

Re: frame paint removal

I would think you could do a pretty serviceable job with a wire brush and putty knife, but it would be tedious as the AA's have a lot of square inches to them. Power grinder with cupped wire and knotted wire wheels would help speed it up some too. I had my two daughters help me out with mine and we ...

Re: Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

Sound like the starter switch is allowing to ground out. Have you remove the switch for inspection? There is a card board insulator that prevents the switch copper contact from touching the switch housing. Should also be something to isolate the stater switch rod. After reconnecting the battery to a...

Re: Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

I think you are going to want to get that bendix gear moving again. Try knocking it back with a hammer and screw driver by tapping it on the gear teeth. If its jammed on something it may stay meshed with the engine which it won't like at all. Once you got it moving freely, clean the helix well but d...

Re: '28 AAR- How rare?

Nice looking truck! Too bad about the painted wheels. Yeah the opened ended Bumper is unusual too.
As for rare, I have never seen one as set up before.

Re: Emergency Resuscitation Of A Dead Engine

No Hammer involved but a good emergency fix for a farmer wife might be a broken fan belt. Truck over heats and stalls out. She cools it down with a bucket from the well and sacrifices her best nylons to fashion a makeshift Fan belt. (It does work for a while)

Re: Flatbed Board Finish Options.

I had similar feelings when I did the deck on the 31. I didn't want them shiny as I planned to use the truck. I did not want them to rot out either. I did not like the look of the Fir timbers as the were a bit too light. I stole and idea from Chip Foose and stained the grain with some cheap black sp...
