  1. Very nice. โ˜บ๏ธ close enough I would say. interesting it was used on '37 MC and '38 RE but not RC I wonder what the reason was to change it on RC's. The new door stop mount looks great.๐Ÿ‘ yeah it must have been fun welding in there...
  2. Not a perfect date match, but could be worse.โ˜บ๏ธ mine is missing the tag, so I don't even know what its for.๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm curious though, are you sure Delco Remy is correct? I've always thought its supposed to be Autolite. but could be mistaken.
  3. Cool, wiring is always funโ˜บ๏ธ. not so with the door stop mount breakingโ˜น๏ธ Hopefully not a difficult fabrication.
  4. Very good, thanks.๐Ÿ‘ and August '37 seems just about right for a very early '38. So is likely original to your truck. I can make out most of it. Not much sun a little further north either.
  5. Yeah its my guess, not sure how to confirm it though unless others have the same code and it corresponds to the production date at least roughly. Why I'm interested what Alan's says. and it would be interesting to know if 592840 is the correct part number for a 1940 or '41. then K0 would likely mean November 1940.
  6. Here's a some photos of the numbers on mine . first the '37 with the correct 579386 part number and F7 (date code?). and the one I think is 1940 with the part number 592840 and K0 (date code?):
  7. Mine measures 38-13/16'' long on the external visible part if that helps:
  8. Cool, that's the right way. after getting a MIG welder I realized I really want a TIG welder ๐Ÿ˜‚ . no hurry on the numbers.๐Ÿ˜Š they are stamped on one end, right by one of the weld beads.
  9. Sounds good๐Ÿ‘ great there was no other damage. did you weld it up, or use some other technique?. also did you find the numbers stamped on it? I'd be curious if yours has a letter /number date code. on the damaged shaft that came in mine it has the(incorrect) part number, other unidentified numbers, and k0. (Nonember 1940?) the replacement from a '37 is stamped F7 {June1937?) . if my guess is right yours would probably have a code ending in 7 also, given the very early production.
  10. Looks very good. what was done to tighten the pin up again ?
  11. Nice. it looks good. I read somewhere what colors were standard options, I think a grey was one of them, but not positive. of course someone could have ordered a custom color. mine was the Milori green I believe. I mixed my own, just using remaining original paint as a guide. got it somewhat close, but not perfect.
  12. Yes very cool and helpful info.๐Ÿ‘ thanks. I look forward to sending away for the build card for mine. and learning what is factory. ๐Ÿ˜Š looks like " Ol' Betsy" is coming along nicely. is the grey her original color?
  13. Good.๐Ÿ‘ my way of thinking as well.
  14. Yeah that's probably who I heard about, good luck in your search . are you planning to have the originals restored, or reproductions made?.
  15. Cool thanks, I learned something too. the only dumb questions are those that are not asked...
