I think the two eye bolts are for the spare tire carrier. Not sure where the other part goes. , Doug.

Keep up the good work.

Progress has been slow, as the truck is sitting in a spare bay of a friends shop, and its half an hour each way to get there. And it sounds like he is planning on selling his house in the spring, so I'm going to have to change the plan a little.

I was intending on making the truck look like it did when it was new, with all new paint etc, but if his shop is going to be unavailable I'll have to just do the mechanical work, and then only the minimum repairs to the body to make it functional again.

I'm thinking I will do the floorboards, door hinges, grease up all the window and door latch mechanisms and get new glass in it. And for the box just weld it up so its in one piece and put new wood in it.
Long story short I need to get moving on the chassis mechanical and get it all back together again asap.

The dana 41 dif has more wrong with it than I expected, the spider gears and the pin are worn, and the pin has worn into the carrier. So I picked up a Dana 44 to replace it with and I'm taking it apart next to make sure its ok. (Dana 41 parts are a lot harder to come by than dana 44s)

2018 is here. Yikes.


Still no rolling frame. I'm in the middle of rebuilding a Dana 44 dif, to replace the Dana 41. Its a slow task. Not having a differential to put in is stalling everything else on the frame at this point.


I did complete the rebuild of the steering box, with tons of help from a flathead ford guy in the neighbourhood. I figured the steering box would be a simple job, and I was really really wrong about that.


I found a NOS worm gear and a sector shaft. Had the worm pressed onto my steering shaft buy a gentlemen with a huge press. That thing is on there tight!


Of course, as with everything on these vehicles, its not just a matter of bolting stuff together. Removal of the bushings was a pain, and then custom reaming the new bushings was another nightmare.


And as it turns out, that NOS sector shaft sat on the shelf for 70 years for good reason. The shaft itself was manufactured improperly and was actually wider in the middle than on the ends. So there was no way to get the sector shaft in past the first bushing. We had to carefully remove some material before it would fit properly. And the process of using varying width gaskets to get the proper rotational tension is pure magic.

Dana 44 Differetial

Well over the last couple weeks I finally got the Dana 44 differential put back together. I replaced the seals, axle shaft bearings and the spider gear / pin assembly.
Unfortunately its still not a great rear end. everything is worn a bit.


I got the break and rotating torque on the pinion to work out ok, but the backlash is a bit high. For now this is how I'm leaving it. I'll have to wait to see when its moving if it has much whine to it.


I was lucky enough to have a local guy (Bob) who is an expert on pretty much everything related to old Fords help me out with the dif. I learned a ton of new stuff.


I also welded up the brake backing plate to take out grooves where the shoes ride.

I also continued on with installing the rebuilt steering box, rebuilt pedal assembly and removed the U-bolts to paint them grey.


And I found the clamps for the steering link and put them on.


I haven't put the pitman arm and drag link on yet.

Here is a picture of the new valve guides with bronze inserts. (Done locally by the same guy that will be doing the valve seats.)

The motor and crankshaft finally came back from the machine shop.
I painted the internals with red glyptal.


The valves and guides are being done by another local guy who is setup with the right equipment.

Rolling frame is complete, except the brakes need bleeding and I haven't added the corn head grease to the steering box yet.

The wheels are just temporary rollers. I've had the original rims sandblasted and powder coated black.

Work on the motor is continuing.
We the help of a local flathead guy in my area, we've been setting the motor TDC, and checking the piston the head clearances.

Heads are currently in being cut a second time.

Typical of flatheads, the timing needle is 2 degrees off from true TDC.
