  • NOV 2020 Brookville dropped off the finished body and pickup bed

    So the Brookville truck was on the way to California to drop off 10 1932 roadster car bodies and I met them up in Kansas City to "pick up" the pickup with my dad and two teenage sons.
    After getting it home I compared the new stuff to what was left of mine and it looks darn close if not exact.

    I was very pleased as I have always done the welding and patching on all my other...

  • JUNE 2020 The body tub and pickup bed

    So I sand blasted the tank/cowl section and no dents, rust through only in a couple of small spots where it mounts to the frame. I applied a coat of primer and re-evaluated the rest of the tub and the pickup bed. There was not much left - literally.
    I have been thinking things over the last couple of years after dad dropped it off and decided to check into Brookville Roadster. I have done...

    Febuary 2020 Body off

    The body as you can imagine came off fairly easily since it was mostly rusted away on the back half. The tank and the front cowl section are in surprisingly great shape with little corrosion. The hood although only surface rust has had some dents and bends here and there. The roadster car doors my dad found for it are badly bent too.
    Here is the frame on the trailer.
    With COVID my business...

  • First Entry - Condition as of 1988

    This is me with the pickup around 1988. Fenders were left over from other projects my dad and grandpa had worked on.
    The pickup had most of the rear cab rusted away and a fair amount of the bed inside was gone too. My dad added some roadster car doors (note the door handles) on it with some bailing wire to hold them shut.
    The pickup was stored in a corner while I did other projects -...

    Engine teardown

    Well I got my engine taken apart today. Really in pretty good shape. I got this engine with a '30 Coupe I purchased several years ago. I worked on the body, but lost interest. Sold the body and kept the running gear for my '31 Station wagon.

    Today I started into the engine. The thing wouldn't turn over, so was really surprised when I started taking it apart and it looked like it...

  • Brake parts and other bits.

    For the past 6 weeks I have been working on mechanical parts for the Station Wagon. I am actually procrastinating working on the fenders. I have now missed the fall painting window for the fenders, so I guess my procrastinating scheme was successful. Now I just have to work them to be ready for the spring paint window May or June 2021.

    Oh well here are some pics of my toils.

  • Radius Rod (Wishbone) ball repair

    So, I started working on the front end pieces and one thing on the list was to repair the ball on the back of the wishbone. This one was pretty badly worn, so saw these options.
    1. Use as is
    2. Replace the ball with a new one
    3. Install a washer in the socket
    4. Try and repair what I have
    I opted for option 4. If I can't repair to my satisfaction I can always replace with a new ball, which is likely the...

    new axles for the modelt

    When you need new axles for the model t and if the old axle is no good I cut the gear end off about 6" from the bottom of the gear. Find an appropriate socket to press the stub end of the axle down thru the gear this will expose the 2 c clips. Remove them and press the axle out of the gear. When you get a new axle have a machinist mike your gear and the shaft of the new axle there should...
