    Starting Disassembly

    Finally got started on the disassembly of my 31 Woody. Every thing looks good so far. Wood is in good shape, body panels are good. Have a few things that I believe will be hard to find. One of the rear door hinges is broke and I am sure they are hard to find....

    The bed

    I had some spare time while I’m waiting for hot metal to cool from welding. So I thought I’d fill in some details. For months I told myself and others, nope not gonna have side boards. I changed my mind. Several things I learned about boards, never trust them to be a nice smooth sanded finish. As high priced as lumber has gotten out here on the coast, I bought the kit for less than I could have...

    Front axle rebuild

    Same as the rest of the pickup, it needed a rebuild on the front axle. So I took all of the brakes and steering off. The spindle arms appeared to be early from a 28 that had the arms bent in away from the backing plates. The service bulletins has the change in it and was mentioned Ford made the change to reduce tire wear when turning. The balls on the arms were worn and I wanted to change the cups...

  • Station Wagon - Rear Doors

    My Brother N97323 sent me some pictures of the rear doors he has been working on.

    Here are the 150A doors


    And the 150B doors



    I am pretty sure he has the door bottoms cut, maybe next pics will show the completed assembly.

    Thanks Don....

  • '29 Pickup - Flywheel and Clutch update

    Picked up the flywheel and pressure plate yesterday. In the end had to put a new ring gear on and of course had it dynamically balanced.

    I put the clutch plate in and torqued it down on the bench. The fingers measured 3/4" to 7/8". I freed up the adjusting nuts and adjusted the fingers to 11/16. Will wait to re-stake the adjustment nuts until I have it all installed on...

  • Station Wagon - Parts for the rear doors

    I've been working on the rear doors. Here are the hinge piller posts and the latch pillar posts. The ones on the right are for the 150B and the center are for the 150A. The far left are originals I've using for patterns. I included a couple of pictures of the jig I've been using to cut the finger joints.

  • '29 Pickup - Checking the Rod Bearings

    A few years ago, after I finished converting Thom from a Closed Cab to an Open Cab pickup, I started up the engine and found a knock traced to #4 rod bearing. So, working on my back, I dropped the pan and found one of the cap nuts on #4 Rod was loose, yes just finger tight. The nut was bottomed out below the cotter pin, so I went back with mechanical lock nuts. Plasti-gauged all the rods and didn't...

  • '29 Pickup - Flywheel Housing Measurements

    This morning I set up on the crankshaft end to measure how parallel the flywheel housing is to the rear face of the crankshaft. Did some research in the Tech Threads and used this thread as my guide.

    Dialing in the Flywheel Cover - Vintage Ford Forum

    Here is my set up. Indicator at 12:00 o'clock


    This clutch has never chattered, and I didn't expect it...

  • '29 Pickup - Engine is out

    Yesterday I removed the engine from Thom. All went pretty well took me about 5 hours. Biggest issue was getting it out of the rear motor mounts. I purchased a frame spreader on eBay and thought it would be here in time, but it was a no show. So brute force it was.

    Here a few pics of the progress.



    The reason to do this was to get to the clutch. The clutch...

    Frame rebuild

    Working on the chassis rebuild. If you had seen pictures when I started it showed the frame had been cut down and it made into a tractor in the 50s. I located a new frame for it about 3 hours away. It was an early 30 that used the 82a “square cab”. The front was bent up from being moved around and the frame on the front half was heavily pitted. That all considered we decided to remove the front...

  • '29 Pickup - Breckenridge or Bust

    I am going to hijack my own Blog. We will be taking Thom (’29 Open Cab Pickup) to Breckenridge CO for the Midwest Region Meet. MAFCA - Midwest Regional Meet Tour - Breckenridge, CO - Vintage Ford Forum . He hasn't seen any real use for several years, so gotta a lot of work to do before the meet.

    Growing up in Western Kansas, the ‘High Country Tour’ was a meet we attended every time...

    'Luck".... But I am a believer that we make our own luck. What's Mitch's tag line? "Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible."

    Look forward to seeing the journey.

    I’ve got to make a jig for the fenders. I’ll tackle that left fender. I keep looking at it. It’s looking back at me so I’ll give it go. Worst case it’ll end up on a rat rod. Still better than scrap yard. I’ll post that one in steps. Wish me luck. 🤔
