Re: POWER STEERING

Find a '73 Chevy power steering unit. These have a valve operated by the steering arm which activates the steering ram. You need to make a bracket for the pump and line it up with the water pump/fanbelt. You need to modify the linkage between the steering arm and the front spindle. Bolt the ram to t...

How much weight?

A few years ago I had a friend who used a '31 AA flatbed in his cement block plant. He would regularly load 15000 pounds and drive the blocks a few miles to delivery. The loaded bed sat squarely on the axles, the steering was a little squirrely and it took a couple blocks to start slowing down but t...

Re: Tires

High-pressure tires are compared to "low" pressure tires by doubling the last number and subtracting this from the first number; viz: 32x6 would be a six-inch would tire on a 20" RIM.

I think the window tinting would look cool, along with dingle-balls hanging from the front window, lowered front end and a plastic Jesus staring out the front windshield.............

Re: Warford Temperature

The Warford makes " lot of noise" because it's about worn out. You can replace the bearings but that wont help much. The only other way to restore it to it's original "quiet" state would be to hard-chrome the gears back to specs. My Warford makes little noise and will push my express along a 55 all ...

Re: High speed rear axle

Make SURE you do not use any oil with EP additives when you fill the rear end otherwise you will destroy your bronze worm in just a few miles, (I know, I did it...........).

Re: warford 2023 counter gear cluster

No, new Warfords did not "make noise". The reason that most Warford transmissions are noisy is because the gear faces wear over the years. Replacing the bearings will usually quiet them some but to get the transmission back to original quiet sound you have to hard-chrome the gear faces back to spec....

Re: how do you shift a warford while moving?

With mine I reach shifting speed (40-45), throw out the clutch then shift immediately into OD. The trans oil temp changes after warms up so shifting pattern/timing will change. One truck I had required immediate double-clutching (no pause) then shove it into od.

Re: gas mileage AA

Depends what State you're in. Here in Taxifornia they modify the gas by using a high percentage of alcohol and oxigenates in order to lessen your mpg. The rats in Sacramento say it's for cleaner air but everyone knows it's because if your car gets fewer miles per gallon you'll have to buy more gas. ...

Re: Flatbed Board Finish Options.

Oak is the wrong wood to use on a bed, unless it is sealed completely it will cup and warp in the weather over time. Many people seem to use oak for exposed use but it was never used for that purpose. Yellow pine, maple would be the better material.
