The seat is as far back as it will go in it's factory stock location. The top of the seat back is just about 1/2" away from hitting the back of the cab. If you change the angle of the seat back to being more vertical I guess you could get more

Any ideas on how to compress it? I don't have the luxury of using a gasket that was in pieces. Maybe put objects on it to gradually squish it?

I used ABS truck mudflap, trimmed to fit. Durable, waterproof, works perfectly for a driver, not appropriate for a restoration.

I have a new set of repop front bumper brackets I bought a few years ago that will be used on my project. If it will help I can take some pics and email them to you in the next day or two. Send me a PM with your email address, if you want the pics

Same predicament for me: one door has the push-style door remote mechanism, the other has the pull style. I actually prefer the push style because it fits into the stamped door recess without spacers or interference with the door panel. Reproductions

Be sure to keep Howard running or he may get jealous. We all know what happens when they sit and are not started or the brakes used a little along the way! I think Howard Knapp and I must be distant cousins or something since I worry about him!!

The housing will pull off once the snap ring is expanded, but you risk loosing the roller bearings at the front of the shaft if you pull the shaft back to much. 1/2" is likely to be to much. I would at the very least pull the side cover so you c

Hello Fred, I really appreciate the feedback. One last question... if I remove the snap ring for the bearing, will the tail housing come off? I've found that I can access the snap ring without disturbing the trans. Here's a photo. Snap Ring

I thought I'd experiment with a HF 12 ton pipe bender over the weekend to see how it would work on an exhaust system for a 261 that I am building for my '57 with a split manifold. The reviews I read on the HF website said that it doesn't work well on

Not sure,but I'd guess that the cab roof height isn't more than 6'4''.-(Depending on tire size) From bumper to rear frame rail,it was 20'. That was a '55 6500.Hope this helps.
