I reinstalled everything with a washer protecting the carter pin which I now check regularly for wear. Then I would give to my 18 year old girl to drive she loves these old trucks. Top to third is best around 20 mph; third to second is no more than 5 mph. Learning to drive by double clutching will make you a better driver. The farm was getting developed for acreages and he wanted to clear everything out. Stake Bed I first threw together a wooden mock-up of the deck, primarily as a quick way to protect the paint when I went for a drive. I retained the 6v system and put in a new wiring harness from YnZ.
The truck could likely still run, but would have to be started using the starting handle. This truck comes with a push bumper that was original on this truck, t is sandblasted. I lined the cab interior panels with adhesive sound deadening material, even on the floor under the gas tank. To get a smooth shift, the change from second to third occurs around 9 mph when the truck is cold. Dave Ted, no luck on the wheels, they are 1 ton specific.
Looking back, I really should have kept them, even if I just parked them outside. When I put radial tires on it the stopping distance dropped significantly even with the stock breaks, which have been rebuilt and always maintained. The flathead V8 had a reputation for overheating but this is no longer a problem with these better designed pumps. I hope you get to see this my friend. I acquired one that has been in storage for 60 years mileage is 2600 miles very hard to believe.
The cab, doors, hood, grille panel, engines, front bumper, fuel tank are the same. This meant I had to use flex hoses of the proper length to miss the frame. With higher speed comes the need for better brakes. So if you were to have adapters made, and custom wheels made to go with the adapters, you'd have to install longer studs and add the increased width of the adapter to your offset measurements to yield a wheel positioned on the truck near to what is stock. I also replaced the sealed beam headlights. It was the first time I could fully appreciate the results of all the effort.
All wheel bearings were replaced as well as the tires. But only puttin in a different rear axle shouldnt be a problem. If a spacer was used, is it going to require some crazy offset to make a modern stock week work right? I found my missing air cleaner! It is an incomparable feeling when you pull up behind someone in traffic and that brake pedal just drops to the floor. I visited a place called Caribou Crossing Trading Post just outside a town called Carcross and they had a Ford One Tonner in the grounds. But my trusty rad shop searched around and reassembled it with a new core for a very reasonable price. The patented formula protects against corrosion of all cooling system metals, including aluminum, while providing maximum freeze-up and boil-over protection. Anyone with experiences in that direction? The welds were ground smooth and ¼ in holes drilled away from the welds spots to secure dummy round head rivets and give the right appearance.
I'd love to see your truck. The truck will need the wiring harness rebuilt or replaced as well as the light switch, was also going to replace the throttle and choke linkage. He likely blamed the ignition switch first. I do like reading what you wright talk to you again. All that was back in 1992.
My buddy in Oregon says, they won't be faster than 50 mph on the road. After a highway run I came into town and while parking the pedal went to the floor. There were a lot of small farmers used tonners like this where I grew up. The engine has been rebuilt by a local machine shop and ran great before i disassembled the truck, he water pumps will need to be replaced due to some leaking from the weep holes and the carb. I took more photos of it than anything else there. Hope some of this helps, congratulations on your new purchase, hope you have fun with it.
It just happened to be parked next to a 1940 Chev pick up that a retired local farmer was selling and I had come to see. The frame will need sand blasted and painted or what ever is the desired finish. Hi gardener, my daughter is a peanut too and I could see her driving something like this. Ours had a 4 speed, no syncro. I was able to find hardware for the corner brackets that closely replicated the originals but I adapted these to fabricate the hinge brackets for the rear panels so they can swing open like a door and allow easy access for loading. The 1 ton wheels use a bigger bolt pattern and larger lugs.
