Keiser ,

Thank  you for reposting .Im going to try as couple more pic.

My front spindle has about 1 inch of thread and another inch of 3/4  ,

The back spindle has about the 1 inch of thread and no more 3/4.

Im a retired machinest  with a lathe and a small mill and can maker the parts,

It looks like ill have make one for the front and one for the rear.

The shoes are just at the rivets,so ill be looking for someone to reline them,

I think it was Bill that wanted to see my front bumper.there it is and it has two longs springs and one shorter one in the middle . 

The bumper is bent a little but it was as a farm truck before I got it .

That last picture of the plastic kitchen unit foot on the axle was mine! I was looking for it. The modified plastic foot fits nicely on the taper. It is a 1930 Dodge Brothers Eight front brake.

Don't loose that crank hole cover.

They don't exist.

If they do exist, a 1930 crank hole cover is expensive.

Thanks for the picture. from the side it looked like there was 3 bumpers.

Good luck with your baby doll.

Nice truck.

Keep it as is.

When I bought  the truck at a auction sale the back bumpers were off it and I couldn’t get the auctioneer to give them to me with the car so I bought the pile they were in $25.00 35 yrs ago. i have a single spring bumper  that Ididnt use I could measure the hole pattern if you are instead .would need re chromed.

I do have a running gear out of a 1928 Chrysler 6 but a lot is different that the 1930..a guy was making a hot rod and I bought what he didn’t want.

 The box  on my 1930 wont tilt as much with the bumpers on but Im not hauling any thing anyway.

The last  license I put on it was 1995.

I wont change anything ,I may see if I can still use the same plate  when  I go to license it again.

Some paint needs some touch up but that’s it.

 To my knowledge it has never been left out side .Ive had it up on blocks so the tires didn’t rot.

On the Crank Hole Cover , we watch Jay Leno and they reproduce a lot of parts with a 3 d printer ,they copy the original part.

They could be powder coated chrome  or?

 Just a though.

The other night I was looking around on the net and a lot of cars are missing that cover.

Id rather have a repo than nothing.

Your tool can be made of wood easier . Using a wood screw for the fine adjustment . Here is mine , walnut scrap with all thread epoxied in edge .

Or you can line the shoes yourself.  It's not brain surgery and I would suspect there are some NOS shoe linings laying around that could be had for nearly free.  I did my 36 Chrysler with linings I bought my First day at Hershey from a box of unidentified Mopar brake linings.  I just had to match them up.   Of course I had the old ones already removed with me to match rivet holes.
