  1. Spring help 34 Dodge

    I took the springs off today and plan on taking them too Wheeling Spring and have the arc reduced. Still looking for the spec on arc.
  2. Spring help 34 Dodge

    I made the link and the rubber bushings and washers are from a sway bar kit for mid 70's ford f-150.
  3. Spring help 34 Dodge

    I tried to hook up linkage rod on rear springs and found the rods were too short. I had suspected this for a long time because the rear end seems to be sitting higher than front end (measured at front of front door sill and rear of rear door and found rear to be 2" higher). I had springs re arced and I believe the gave them too much. They have 8 leaves and seem pretty stiff ( you have to jump on running board support to make them flex any). The arc hanging on car with body jacked up is 7 1/2" and with weight of body 6 3/8". Length of rear shackle is 4" c/c. Spring pack is 2 1/4" thick. Anyone know correct arc, number of leaves and length of each leaf (may have been built up for hauling moon shine or whatever)? Could the spring shackle I purchased be too long? Need to lower about 4" (see picture of shock linkage) to hook to shock and have travel in both directions(now you have to pull shock to bottom of stroke too even hook up). Will have springs re arced but need this information if possible.
  4. 1934 dodge engine dust pans

    I got the dust pans made and on. This has been an on and off project. It was partly disassembled in 1970 when I bought it and I finished tearing it apart about 5 years ago or more. I have moved it a couple of times and am having problems finding things. Today I worked on throttle linkage but couldn't find linkage from cross shaft to carburetor linkage. May be called Throttle control bell crank to carburetor rod. Also can't find dipstick for engine. I would like to find pictures and measurements, purchase them or borrow some to use for pattern. Thanks Jim.

I have the gas cap which is battery operated which works but needs rewired and chromed. The wing glass is ok. I will try to member the pictures.

    I have seen where running boards were called flareboards and they would require gussets to fasten them to frame. Just a thought.
