Re: Cab Corner Hole Lugnutz Thu Jan 20 2022 04:16 PM
I’ll contribute something although it’s worthless info. I think these trucks were built with A. I. (artificial intelligence). If the drain holes get plugged, the computer brain turns on the “drain hole mode” and the floor and rockers will make another functional drain hole. I just can’t find that darn computer.
I have drain holes along the PS rocker and another at the driver toe board. I hit a puddle once and my foot got wet.

Spun the oil pump until it seeped out the rockers. Last one took a bit before it dribbled out. Didn't have the filter canister tightened down so a nice oil mess.

I have the flywheel on the ball-bearing with Poston at the top, but how do you tell if the valves are closed? They all look the same to me...

Scrub those whitewall tires and the colors will really pop! Drive your truck for six months and you’ll fall in love with the way it looks now and won’t want to repaint it. That’s what happened to me.

Thanks guys! Based on your replies I told the seller I was no longer interested in his motor. He had it listed as a 235.

Right. This is a clamp style thing as well.

You straightened the air horn of the carb itself?

Trent, in the upper right corner of the page next to your username you will see the image of a envelope. If that image is flashing you have a private message. Click on the flashing envelope to open the message. You can also go back to your profile and change your preferences to send you a notification email when someone sends you a PM.

One of the problems is the gas tank for the 1 tons is not being reproduced and used tanks are hard to come by, plus if you do find one it more than likely has had a visit from mister rust. Good luck.

Full cab rear panel. 53&Me Thu Jan 20 2022 11:50 AM
Has any of you folks replaced the cab rear panel instead of just the cab corners? I see that it is available and it looks to be held in place by bolts in the rear edge and spotwelds on the sides. Is that really all there is, or am I missing something?

Re: 1954-1955 1st Series Truck Heater/Fan D$TROYER Thu Jan 20 2022 06:11 AM
Thank you Kevinski and tclederman for pointing me in the right direction. It is not the same heater/fan but I’m willing to give it a shot even if it takes some modification. Thanks Kevinski for introducing me to that helpful site!

**Update*** I tried placing the order but the site said “This offer is not up to date, it is impossible to place order.”

The search continues thank you again for your assistance!

Re: Master Cylinder Kit for 1940 1/2 ton pickup Riggles Thu Jan 20 2022 06:01 AM
Men, thanks very much for the info. George, I don't know how I didn't see the washer in the end, must have had an eye closed! I have now got it all together & will start & put it all together over the next couple of days. I have printed off the diagram of the master cylinder, so my sons will have something to help them in the years to come.
I am making a new sound deadening layer to fit under the floor mat, which should also reduce some heat coming up from underneath.
Once again, thanks for the help. The help & advice I have received over the last few years has been great, and I tell friends what a great forum this is.

Re: Missing kingpin seal (3600 Kingpin Replacement) moparguy Thu Jan 20 2022 03:41 AM
Ebay, I'm no expert but this one might be worth a look. [] Not sure about a handle to turn it and you'd have to use shim stock to keep it centered in the bushing you're not cutting. At least based on the knowledge Jerry shared. Hopefully he'll chime in.

Another, [] better option.

And another. []

I got the rear end torn down today. Kind of hard to see the pinion, but I'll figure out a way to count the teeth and we'll know for sure soon.

The truck will have an easy life. I am going to get everything working like it should and then just drive the truck. I'll use it to get feed and stuff at the co-op and other light farm use. Might even use it to pull the old 35 Massey to local tractor shows because I don't think that will be too much for it. I was telling the guy doing the frame that it wouldn't ever be max loaded and worked hard, but he said there was no way he'd let it leave his possession without me being able to load it up heavy and not worry, but I never will. After we can use it for a while one day we'll strip it back down to make a pretty truck. Right now I just want one I can use without worrying about scratches and dings. I might clean and paint the chassis as I go this time around but I'm not committed to that yet.

Re: Automotive De-evolution moparguy Thu Jan 20 2022 02:57 AM
JW51, since your thread has new legs consider the Carrington Event of 1851. []. This article [] is from a more respected source, Scientific American.

Scary stuff. Fires were started by telegraph lines, telegraph operators were able to send messages with batteries disconnected using only stray voltage in the atmosphere. Daylight at midnight due to extreme aurora borealis activity over a large part of the planet. Accounts read like a cheap sci fi movie, but it was real.

When another plasma ejection (giant solar EMP) hits earth (most miss) it's not going to be a pretty picture. That's when a vehicle like my old school '95 Dodge diesel "may" earn it's keep. Doesn't require a computer to run, or battery, or any electrons. It has a totally mechanical fuel pump, and injection pump. I needed the start solenoid for a project truck many years ago so it was pulled and replaced with a push/pull cable like many old school diesel tractors run. If someone steals the battery and I've got a hill to roll down for a bump start, we're good to go. That is if the solar EMP dosen't start a fire that burns the old truck up.

So, my first vote is a older school diesel. No computers, simple fuel needs, run on vegetable oil, kerosene, pine knots (well the Cummins might smile Or an older Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Always liked those, looked really hard at doing a Cummins 4BT or Isuzu 4BD1T conversion on one for a spell.

Hopefully we won't have to live through a Carrington level event. But if we do, I suspect this group will deal better than most in the modern world.
