Adding to the collection

Now that the '29 is done and running well, I have recently acquired a 1950 dodge B2B 1/2 ton 5 window. Anybody got any helpful hints, links what I am in for? I have all of the parts, was disassembled for restoration and never completed. Thanks

Rear View Mirror Placement

I have a rear view mirror and was wondering does it extend down below the cross member into the window area or not. I don't have access to official judging stands and just need to see where it should go.

Re: Just minding my own business then................

Well, I got it apart and found some pieces. I read where I was supposed to install the clutch with the shorter flange on the clutch toward the flywheel. Well I honestly don't remember considering that on the install. Is that why it failed? Or do they just fail from time to time?

Re: Head gasket leak

Hi, I have been in the same spot and while these leaks are troublesome, unless excessive they are tolerable. If they are not tolerable I have found that head gasket sealer additives cover the small weeping spots that cause these leakes and eliminate the problem. Not a fan of additives but they do wo...

I have most recently purchased a new windshield for my 29. I want to install a manual wiper, but can not find much detail about the shaft tube the sits on top of the windshield. It looks simple, two rivets holding a ~1/2 tube. Does anyone have a close up, exact location, exact size of the tube and a...
