  1. I got them off! I got the big hand sledge and kept fighting for 2 days. Ion the second day i gave it a few good whacks on the threaded rod and in “popped” loose. The right side came off easier. The shoes looked good. I adjusted both sides and took it for a drive today. Brakes are working good. Thank you Richard
  2. Thanks for all the great advise guys, this is what I needed to hear. I think I was approaching the job too timidly. I was using a 16 oz hammer. I have a hand sledge that’s about three to four pounds. richard
  3. Hey guys, I’m trying to remove the rear brake drums from my 1932 Marmon. I’ve attached a hub puller to the drum and wound it up pretty tight. I sprayed a penetrating oil at the axle/hub area and allowed it to sit overnight. With the puller attached, I heated the axle/hub area (small propane torch) and gave the tip of the threaded rod a few good whacks. It won’t budge. Any suggestions of something else to try? Richard
  4. Hey Menno, I asked this same question a coup;e of years ago when I was rebuilding my engine. I got no answers. I painted my engine a dark green although I suspect that the original color was probably black.
  5. Charley, If you can’t find one, I think you could easily reproduce one with simple shop tools. It’s a bit of fiddly work but the satisfaction of having repaired it yourself would be so worth it IMHO. Richard
  6. Wow! I probably won’t find rendered bear fat at Pep Boys! Thanks for all the suggestions, your experiences as well as the products used. It sounds like I have a big job ahead if I decide to tackle it. Richard Duvall
  7. I have a 1932 Marmon. The leather is in “good” condition but is showing signs of drying out with an uneven look. What is the process for bringing this leather back to life?

  10. Hey Guys, I am new to fords butI am looking at a 1933 ford for sale but I have some concerns about the water temperature and oil pressure gauges. The seller says it doesn't have a water temp gauge or an oil pressure/temp gauge. I say these cars couldn't last 80+ years without this information. What gives? ricosan
