Just a note that if anyone is interested in joining a local (BC) club. The BC Pioneer Truck Society the next general meeting is coming up this Sunday, May 26 at 11:30, in Harmsworth Hall. The hall is located just south of the 232nd exit off of highway 1, on the east side of the street. Membership is only $10 a year, and that's per family. The BC Pioneer Truck Society encompasses all makes of trucks, not just Stovebolts. There will be at least a couple of the BC Bolters at the meeting. Some up coming events are a hot dog sale on July 1, and a club picnic coming up in July.

It mounts on a recess in the cowl, the edge of the vent seals to it.

Come on guys, alitta help is all im asking for. I thought for sure someone would know exactly what I am asking about. I didn't think this would be a big "head scratcher" for all the professionals and knowledge bouncing around this website. Ive learned a lot just routing around. I just couldn't find exactly what I was looking for so I thought id ask. Or maybe this is a really straight forward swap and Im wasting everyone's time????

As for gear lube, I think you want to use 90w Mineral Oil, not the modern 85/90w oil. If I'm wrong someone will correct me...

All the moderator needed to do was simply point out that the last question would be better suited for car guys, and steer him to another site that might be able to help him, while the Stovebolt guys helped with the bore questions.

Martin, if you haven't read Dale Carnegie's "How to win friends and influence people", you can get a used copy on Amazon for $2. PM me your address, and I'll mail you a copy. In Part 4, you'll learn that there is always a way to correct someone and make them feel good about it without negatively pointing out their "errors" or bluntly telling them they are wrong. Check it out, it sounds like a great opportunity for you to polish your skills as a forum leader.

Well it has 7 bolts making it a Saginaw. I see Rock Auto has seal/gasket/bearing kits for it for about 90 bucks. My own stupid fault. I'm restoring the truck and had it disassembled down to nothing but the cab on the frame. The trans was working fine so I left it as is other than a new clutch, flywheel, and throw out bearing. I didn't stop to think about the fact the truck had been sitting for years. After about 50 miles of shakedown driving the old dried front seal is now that the truck is 95% complete......argh....

Here is a side view of the choke. I pulled the choke cable tight and it's better, but the choke sticks wide open. If I want the choke to engage, I have to take off the air cleaner and nudge it down 1/8" (then the cable works fine).

The throttle cable is just bent under the linkage, that can't be right can it?

My son’s ‘53 has under the floor power brakes w/dual master cylinder. The truck is a 350/700r4. He is running a proportioning valve. Camero subframe so the rubbing is not an issue. 🛠

My 39 has the gas tank under your butt, er seat. I installed a glass sediment bowl filter that has a built in shut off valve where the shut off valve use to come out of the bottom of the gas tank. I clean it out periodically. The glass bowl stays clean on the fuel pump and so does the carburetor.

Will it work?


Will it work well? Should be good for a 20 percent power LOSS.

Well I’ll be pulling the motor soon to go thru it so I’ll see!
I don’t order or buy any parts for this truck unless I pull apart what I have first to visually figure out what year it matches up with, fun!

I get that feeling with the ODSS gang when I go to the Homecoming with a crazy Australian.
When I say hold my beer and watch this, they really back away.

Thanks. That makes sense now, the tag lists net horsepower not gross. As for the 216 being standard, you're the first one to state that and show proof. I have been wondering about that for the longest time, you've scratched my itch.
