  1. Attached some close ups . I think wd or kero may be just what it needs . I'm not sure know to get it out ,washer ring on bottom may be something . You'll have to careful because of gear reduction plug .
  2. If you remove it and oil it while spinning with a vari-sped drill . Do not use cable stick square something ie nail filed square . Is there lot of corrosion in the housing or is it just dry . I'll take pic of cable end to show after LLWS game.
  3. Sorry do not know exactly what you mean by nipping . Where the cable goes up into the housing you can stick a small screwdriver blade and turns freely the shaft right up to the magnetic dome . It also turn at a slow ratio the worm gear that drives the odometer . I see two pin with plastic washers under them . I think they hold the respective shafts in . Have you tried cleaning and lubing before taking that much apart (WD-40 ) . Remember to try avoid reduction gear inset . Call me if you need me to check something else out . When you look up the cable hole I see a split washer (ring) , do

  6. Have barrel type meter on my '31 dodge pickup .Noticed cable bend and spread at trans. side so removed cable. While trying to push cable back together it slide back into connector looks great . But was it suppose to? How much end should stick out past trans. end , meter end has limiter attached on cable ? Also what lube should I put on cable before sheathing it ? I also note the meter moves when hand turning cable but never returns to zero , is there a spring inside ? This Forum's been great help for me getting this truck I recently acquired back on the road . I finally finished

  8. Took another look this weekend mine has a channel steel frame between seat frame and chassis frame .However do not see why it could not be wood . Probably support cab from ground independently , until doors lay out square and grab some measurements for wood .

  10. Here is some pictures of my floor , however the front section by pedals is plywood . meaning it is not original . All the pedal are just notched down from top 1/4x20 flat head bolt hold it down . There are two studs ,highlighted by cardboard, about size of 20 or 30pn nail head up about 3/8" that mat hooks to . from starter pedal center line right 2" plus 8"more to center second , I think maybe should have one on left side but mine does not .There is also a foot rest 1 3/4 " to left of starter pedal and 2" down from top . The mat is at least two pieces book pics show what looks like 3 .

  14. Roger on that ! Do not know about Friday nite am going to try and get there Thur or Fri. Did you hear any thing from Rich if he got the hub puller or not. For an original Springfield priced at 45. was pretty good .
  15. Hello Stakeside ; I just started looking for headlight for my '31 dodge to replace sealed beams . Need some pics and info on lens and the bottoms ie. mounting and spacer ? Would greatly appreciate any help. You may want to do some more checking. I read something about a coating other than silver ,may have been aluminum or something ,it was not powder coat . But may been applied the same way .
  16. Got the pics from Glenn . It definitely helped me disassemble my frozen tire lock and showed me some lights need to get what I saw verified . I pm'ed George on it .

Tom

He said his measured 2 1/4" and me and Norm found one on table about 4 or 5 vendors down from your setup. We went back and gave him the vendors card, he was going to find him when we left . Hey , Doug remember the booklet I bought . Well I contacted the guy in back with the other uf-10 pickup , his was only about 200 serial numbers from mine.

I'am in contact with another '31 dodge owner now he saying , they are Twi-lite depressed beam two bulbs and metal not chrome about 9 3/8 or 8 7
  19. HuZahh! The puller arrived today . Prior a had decided to attack it at the key way .I clean all grease away with carb cleaner ,then added penetrating fluid and PB baster to it . Figured it would travel the key way and pour it to available spaces in taper . Next added one puller very snuggly and lower wheel to ground 5 short wacks with 5lber . Heard tone change on 4 and it was loose , Could not believe how easy it worked . Thanks to George and Mark S for your recommendation . Next cylinders and shoes .
  20. Thanks for every ones help to date .I have George sending me out a puller Monday 2 3/8" it is. George is the Man when it comes to machining and pullers . Talked on phone with him . He was having concerns with the measurements I was giving him though the differentials seem close the numbers where always about .026" smaller then what he said 2 3/8" threads should be . After talking about the caliper's I was using he ask me to check the teeth on the rail as he suspected chips or dirt was causing a skip . BINGO the dial calipers had both ;,a quick measurement with a mic. gave the correct measureme

  22. That's it on page one Springfield size #60 2 3/8 x 16 tpi . I'm surprised all the other vehicles that use the same . On good news I am in contact with George McMurtry he said has one in stock to send out asap ,after verifying some measurements on length . Next is wheel cylinder to sleeve or use incorrect replacements ie step bores needing mounting plate hole opened 1/8" + . Honing and rebuild is out as already did one and it now .015 over on a .005 oyer max. Heard latter some where blasting rust out and filling with JB bond and honing to take care of pits . Have you heard this?
