  1. Thanks Carl, I will reach out to him...
  2. I will be disassembling the rear brakes on my 1939 1.5 ton truck shortly and will surely need to get the shoes relined... Can anyone recommend a quality shop that won't take 2 weeks to do the job and can handle either bonded or riveted shoes? Can anyone also confirm the thickness (6.91 mm) needed for these? Thank you.
  3. Any luck with the Dyna-Flyte 880 Distributor plate? Thank you...
  4. Hello Bloo, Thank you very much for the help here... I have actually been able to slide out the female parts of the connector out... The base, which I would have expected to be some type of fiber board feels more like chemically treated cardboard... One is a little iffy and might have to re-coat with something (epoxy?) to help maintain its integrity so that I can reuse it... Yet to see if the contacts are crimped or soldered... I have never seen replacement bulb contacts of that size. It should be interesting to locate if I cannot reuse.. The male contacts are corroded into the male portion (Bakelite?) I will try and see how I can push from behind... Or wonder if I could soak the connector (don't know what would work here) to loosen up what appears to be corrosion... Has anybody else ever dealt with these?
  5. Hello There,I was just able to obtain a pair of correct headlamps for my 1939 1.5 ton pick up truck and would like to bring them back to original configuration... At first glance it seems that it will be very difficult to rewire the original round (3 pole) connectors inside... The female side with the springs seems almost impossible to take apart... Has anyone tried this, or does anyone know of a place where you can send your reflector and sockets for a rewire? Thank you.
  6. Hello Mike, I will give you a ring tomorrow... Can also send you photos to your phone. Thank you.
  7. I have a pair of 1938 headlamp Buckets... One is complete and the second missing the lens. Very good rust free condition. $300.00 plus shipping. Will have more details and photos tomorrow.
  8. Hello Dave, Can you post photos of your carburetors? Thank you...
  9. Hello Curti, what are you getting for your new Purolator filters?
  10. Hello Paul, Yes, that looks identical to the Napa filter... Please see photo.
  11. Hello Tinindian, Do you still have any of these filters or the gold C-20 filters? Do they take the refill shown in your photo? How does the element open up? I have a similar filter on my 39 Chevy truck (Napa 1035) that is apparently discontinued...
  12. Hello all,Looking to confirm the following ignition part numbers for my 39 1.5 ton truck with original engine and components:Distributor: Delco 111008Points: Delco D-105 P or D-111Condenser: Delco 1917580Spark plugs: AC-46Starter: Delco 1107009Generator: Delco 948-RCutout relay: Is it located on top of the generator? please see photo...Voltage regulator:Thank you for your help...
  13. Good to hear Gary and thank you for all the additional information... I just found this other photo of radio components by an Ebay seller. The one piece I do not have is on the very top of the photo...
  14. Hello Gary, Thank you! I just received the magazine, the article looks great except for a minor typo... As for the radio, I really like the idea of having the right music... I have the radio installed, yet I have no idea of its condition. If your radio guy can make it rain, it surely be nice! What is the approximate cost? I know shipping will be pricey because of the weight. As for the proper brackets, I just found a long piece approx. 8- 3/4 with another small 90 degree section, yet I feel there is something missing...I managed to install it with a home-made bracket for now but would like to have the right hardware in there...
  15. Hello Neil, thank you! I am looking forward to the article and photos next month... In the meantime, I am taking my mother in law to a Glenn Miller concert this Wednesday in the car. She loves the music and the ride. No wonder, she is 93 and her father had a 36 Buick also!..:)
