  1. Thanks for all the information. I love this forum! Dave, I'd hate to tear into these and mess things up. I will remove them from the frame and take a closer look, thanks again
  2. My front shocks seam to work fine, however they leak oil. Does anyone know where i can send them to be rebuilt? 1937 1.5 ton ME-31
  3. Thank you for the information. I will contact them this week and look into what can be done on my gear box.
  4. On my 37 ME-31 1.5 ton truck I'm experiencing the dreaded death wobble, I've found some play between the steering wheel and the gear box, does anyone know where I can send my gear box to be rebuilt? It is the sector type. I've tried to adjust the worm adjustment screw and it did nothing. MY shop manual doesn't go into much detail on how to do any adjustments
  5. Some are size 8, some are size 10, I found three different thread counts 24,32, and the course thread was either 12 or 15. These are all from the inside of cab including door panels, kick panels, head liner, dash, windshield frame (two piece)
  6. Thanks for all the information. Fastenal only had half the stuff I wanted so I made a order with McMaster and the had all the odd ball screws that I needed
  7. I'm having a real difficult time finding any vendor who can supply me with the correct size and thread count bolts and screws. Does anyone know of any company who might specialize in hard to find machine screws and such?
  8. Now that all the mechanical work is finished on my 37, I have turned my attention to the interior. I just finished the seat and got it back from the upholstery shop and it looks great. Totally forgot that I am missing a rear window garnish molding so if anyone has one in decent condition I would be interested in purchasing it for my project.Thanks, Frank.
  9. Alan, thanks for the picture! I figured that it had a molding, just needed to make sure. Now the search begins for that garnish molding. Thanks again!!
  10. Does the inside rear window have any trim or garnish molding? My 37 1.5 ton truck has nothing but the window, no trim. Maybe someone could please post a picture of their window so I can see what the finished product is supposed to look like. Thanks
  11. Now that I have a few mils on my 37 ME-31 I noticed my speedometer is reading much slower than I am going. Any suggestions?
  12. Practice is right, double clutching works but you need to be on the money with the R.P.M. and the timing for the lower gear.
  13. My 37 ME-31 has a freshly rebuilt 228 flathead and I would like to know how to adjust the timing. Also, where does it need to be set at? 4 degrees advanced? The machine shop had it running really good on the stand, but it now seams like the timing might be off. Do I hook up the timing light like any other vehicle? Its original six volt positive ground
  14. is there a way to downshift my 1937 four speed transmission?
  15. 37 ME-31 1.5 ton, yeah it is the metal slanted part of the floorboard. Same thing on left side.
  16. After three years of putting my 37 together I was hoping to take it down the driveway for its maiden voyage until I found this new problem. Does anyone have any spare linkage parts to help me out? This piece clamps onto the brass rod from the carb. Thanks, Frank
  17. I'm putting together my 37 ME-31, the frame has been painted and so has the motor and bell housing. My question is, do I need to install a ground strap from the frame to the engine block? There wasn't one on it when I dissembled it.
  18. passenger side floorboard, I don't know what these holes are for. what bolts to these mounting holes? Pictures show inside cab and the engine compartment side of floorboard
  19. On my 37 ME-31 1.5 ton cab, where does the carburetor return spring hook to on the back side of the floor board? Can someone please post a picture of this hook up location?
  20. There is a fused connection on the back of the ammeter on my 1937 M-31 can anyone tell me what this fused connection goes to?
  21. which way do the holes in the tube face? Up or down?
  22. Sure enough, the water tube is rotted away and half of what's left is in the block! Another thing I noticed is there was no thermostat . Is the thermostat a common size? Or is this most likely going to be hard to find? I've never seen one on Ebay or anywhere else. I'm going to have a bitch of a time getting that tube out! Frank
  23. Does my 1937 218 motor need a water distribution tube? When I stripped down my motor two weeks ago, I found that it did not have one and was wondering if it is supposed to. Did it come from the factory with one in it? Or is a distribution tube a aftermarket thing? Thanks, Frank
  24. I need a set of Kingpins for my 37 ME31 1.5 ton truck. Any help would be much appreciated!! Thanks in advance, Frank
