Express bed boards

I have cut my bed boards 7 3/16 wide. I now need to cut groves for bed strips. Question - how far from the board edge is the grove. How wide and deep is the grove?

Re: Speed and the AA

Not sure yet. My 4th of July goal is going to be hard to make. I rebuilt all brakes with new linings all the way around. I need to pull rear hubs back off yo install some shims on axle. Currently the end of the ankle sticks out to far to let hub caps go on. I will be working on express bed over next...

Re: Speed and the AA

My 29 truck has high speed rear and Warford overdrive. I did a touring motor also with bigger intake valves, Snyder 6.1 head, and lightened flywheel (42 lbs). Everything else was left original. Best part is that everything looks stock. I expect around 50+ horse power. Should do 55 easy. My goal is t...

Looking for one rain gutter

Getting ready to install top and found myself missing the half round cover on one of my original rain gutters. I am doing a rusty restore so new gutters will not work for me. If you have old half round cover or an entire gutter for sale please give me a call or text - Bob 269-423-2637

Re: Anybody know the story on this Express?

I was inspired by this truck when I seen it on eBay the first time. I thought it sold for 18k. I have decided to keep my express truck totally rust as this one is. I will have new wood in my bed and correct rear fenders.

Re: Top wood replacement

All rust but mostly solid. Been cleaning gas tank today. Removed it and scraped some rust loose from bottom. Vacuumed and poured in 35 1/2 nuts. I have been rolling and sloshing all day. Do it for a couple of minutes then rest while doing something else. Cleaning up pretty good. Will continue till t...

Top wood replacement

When removing my old wood I found a mastic/tar substance between the wood and metal. Is this original? Is it necessary?

Re: 29 express spare wheel mount.

Does someone have measurements of the straight horizontal run of an original up to where it starts to curve up as measured from the out side of the frame? The one I made did not go thru the hole in splash apron like it should. It was a little high as it was curving upward. I think I need to add in a...

Re: Axles too long?

Hub caps will not clear the axles -to long. The rear end was disassembled to install inner seals but axles were what came out of it. I believe I have enough room to cut 1/4 inch off nut and axle and then re-drill a hole for cotter pin.

Re: Model A engine rebuilders

I would recommend antique engine rebuilders in Skokie Illinois. Several of my club members have used them. They do a complete short block for 2300. No tax and shipping is a standard 100.00 each way. They have very good reviews and a good warranty on the rebuild. You basically get a modern engine bac...

Re: Axles too long?

I will try and install some hub caps tonight. I was worried the rear end went together wrong.
