  • Welcome new members from the Gettysburg meet

    Welcome to the VFF!
    It was nice meeting so many of you! If you visited our tent when I wasn't there, I'm sorry I missed you.
    It has only been 4 months since the inception of this forum, and it has really grown at a rapid pace. The main goal of the VFF is to provide you with quality, organized info, and a place to connect with others. You may learn something here, teach someone here, or maybe you just want to hang around and read. You are all welcome!! Plus, we love hearing suggestions from our members!
    Feel free to introduce yourself on this thread or if you need any assistance, you can ask for it here or email / PM me
    Thanks and again welcome!!

    Good to see many old friends amongst the new members. Rod
    Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.

      Thanks to everyone who has welcomed me on board, and especially to DaWizard for his simple way to check light switch rod length. My steering column is 45 inches long, so adding 1 inch makes it the 45 and 31/32 inch, 1930/31 column. I had been totally confused trying to work out some of the other methods of calculating it.

      My pickup does have the later cab and tall radiator but it also has the 1929 dashboard and the engine manufacture date is February 1930, so I think it might be a transitional model built during the changeover period. There is no way of knowing if the engine is original. It also has an AA gearbox, but this is not original.
      Thanks again
      Colin

              Just 1 bit of friendly safety advice. Replace the cooling fan as soon as you can with an aluminum 1 piece two blade fan. Except for the plastic fans and the aluminum fans, all others can suddenly throw a blade from age and stress cracking. Can ruin lots of things like water pumps, hoses, radiator, and put a hole in your hood. Worst case it can hurt or kill someone. I do like the truck, looks like someone decided good seats were high on the important list. Also looks to have 1935 16 inch wheels.Thanks for the additional pics. We like stories and pictures. Oh, and welcome to the VFF

                It's not an indented firewall. Zoom in and you can see the sediment bowl is missing and a rubber fuel line is running from inside the cab to the carb.
