  1. Ok Thanks for the pics. I have new wood blocks made and fitted. I believe 3 stiff springs were used at 3 cab mount points but there are 6 cab to frame bolt holes. 

    What goes where?   I've seen cab to frame  bolt/spring kits showing 3 long shoulder bolts, 3 springs and 1 short bolt  with flat washers for all. 

    Thanks   John

    OK,   I know it looks scary but the basic chassis is there. The wood wheels can be duplicated and hard rubber tires fitted.

    An authentic flatbed and simple cab can be fabricated in wood like the original. 

    You would need a motor/controls and a steering column. All new components are available to repower this chassis. 

    The data plates are attached to the frame. 

    Found and located in Iowa.     John

  3. OK thanks. This truck came in with freshly made plywood triangular boards in the position shown in the pic. They will have to be replaced.  

    It appears that the purpose for them was to add  reinforcement to the cab floor at the 4 cowl to frame brackets bolt holes. 

    I can make new ones.      Thanks for the help.       John

  4. Real nice work on the truck.

    I have a question about the area where the front end of the rear fender meets the rear end of the running board splash apron and box filler panel.   

    Mocking up those parts leaves a large gap between them at the point where they meet.

    Is there a filler piece of some sort  to close up the misalignment gap?     I can't tell from the photos.

    Thanks,     John

  5. One rough 1/2 ton 1937 DB box/tail gate.  The stake pockets could be removed and reused.  I will try to post pics Monday. Located in Central Iowa  50632

    I am building a replica and this served for measurements etc. The original off the truck was in far worse condition. 

    I am using a repop tailgate, tailgate hinges, end panel and restored stake pockets off the original box.

    I formed the floor channels as original in each floor half with shop made tooling on a Pullmax P5 and and the side walls are included with each floor half as original. 

    All the box sub rails are new as well. 

    Thanks,      John

  6. I need to build replacement splash pans to replace the butchered and incomplete set I have to work with. 

    Could one of you post pics of a complete set?  They don't have to be perfect by any means but mostly complete if possible. 

    Thanks.

    John

  7. Alan,     

    Assuming the engine splash pans (between frame and engine) are the same on a 37 Dodge truck as those on your truck would you have a photo of a good set or at least those that haven't been butchered? The set I have are missing sections. I'll make a new set after I see a complete set. 

    I'm nearly ready to begin welding together a newly fabricated box for the 37 using a repop tailgate and front end panel. I am using original stake pockets and we formed the floor channels on my Pullmax with the seam down the middle as original. 

    I'll post pics of it fairly soon.   

    Your work looks good and thorough. 

    Thanks for any help.     John

     

    Ok Thanks.  I think I will start a thread on the topic in case yours are different than mine.    John

  9. Are you sure they are bent?   Fitting the doors to the door opening with them will reveal if they are damaged or not. If need be they are easy to bend. 

    Luck.    John

     

  10. I have 2  25' coils of  I 1/2" and 2  of 2 1/2"   used hose not to be used to fight fire. Couplings are not brass.  Keep it out of the landfill.  Make a $50.00 donation to our volunteer FD and it's yours.

    Put it on your antique fire truck. 

    Thanks John   in Iowa
