Re: Extended Fuel Range - How do you overcome this?

I see your in Canada land but some states here in the US dont allow metal cans to be filled at service stations. I would securely make some kinda mount in the bed and find a way to keep the sun off the can but that seems like the easiest solution. Just dont forget to fill the can and the truck up be...

Re: Paint pattern for 1931

From my understanding ford would paint the color a custom color upon request (and $$$). But period correct it could be anything and everything the business wanted their trucks to look like so id imagine somewhere at some point they had 2 tone paint jobs.

Re: Log truck and trailer brakes

Thanks for the advice, gentlemen. I'm assuming that in the era of the Model A's and mechanical brakes, semi trailers simply did not have brake axles. Is this a fair assumption? Also, when choosing a chassis to build a log truck project (or any truck with a fifth wheel to pull a semi-trailer), would...

Re: Express bed boards

agreed - looks like the cone insulator/actuator broke apart and spring shorted out the contact to ground.

If you paint the fuse holder a nice satin black it blends in nicely with the engine compartment.

Re: Rear fenders

Ive also noticed the flatbed tow trucks generally have rear fenders and those are rather large (and wide but can always trim em down) tire diameters.

Re: fan belt size

I can't say anything about hitting the water pipe, but the 44 works just fine on mine... Frank Theres like 7-9 different shaped water pipes over the years to accommodate different generators and running changes. You may have gotten one where the generator is free to swivel out more - usually its th...
