  • Houdaille and Houde

    So looking at the RG&JS all shock absorbers were made under license from Maurice Houdaille of France to Houde Engineering Corporation in Buffalo, New York. So how is the name pronounced? I know most people pronounce it who-dale, and that is probably wrong?

      The link to Nokie Edwards playing WIpeout and Sleepwalk was great. I wish I still had all the Ventures albums I once had. What a wall display the album covers would make. Thanks for the memories.

        Shock links
        by Captndan
        Sooner or later you are going to rebuild a shock link. Problem is the link and your hands are greasy. Other problem is the parts won't stay put when you try to put the link on. So, put the link together on the bench but leave the top cap off. Fill the link with grease Red Sticky is advised. Put the link on the shock FIRST then on the perch. Put in the cap adjust and use a cotter pin. Clean...

        Shock Arm Manufacturers Mark
        by Rowdy
        Getting ready to clean up the rest of my shock arms to possibly come up with a set with matching marks and correct style. What are the most common mark? Also I have not yet bought the revised JS. Were there any changes made to the shock arm section? Planning to buy new JS in Sept. before going on Junk Jaunt so I can look closely for items needed correct parts. Rod

        Original Thread



        This is a brief summary about the installation of Armstrong lever-type shock absorbents (image 01) on my 1930 Model A pickup. I wanted to document this process since not much detailed information is out there, especially regarding light commercial trucks.

        BACKGROUND

        I have an unrestored late 1930 closed cab pickup. Ford gave the...

        Front End Sag on 1929 Sports Coupe
        by Dave in MD
        One of our club members was driving his 1929 Coupe to his garage behind his house. While driving on a grassy area, he heard a very loud clunk from the front end. When he got the car into his garage he noticed the driver side of the front end was much lower (about three inches) than the passenger side. When we looked at it yesterday, we saw the shock arm and link on the passenger side were in a straight...

        Are 1932 Model B Rear Shock Arms the Same as 1931 Shock Arms?
        by Tom Wesenberg
        I can't find my 1932 parts book, so I'm wondering if the 1932 rear shock arms are the same part and part number as the 1931 arms?

        Friction Shocks - Part 2 - Rear
        by Bobm90
        Installing friction shocks on the rear of my Model A Sedan was more of a challenge than installing them on the front. The stock shock on the right rear was a non entity, no resistance at all even when re-filled, scuff marks can be seen in the photos on the inner fender well from the original shock link. The biggest challenge was to move the new shock out far enough away from the frame to clear the...
