Hi Red, welcome to FTE. Sweet looking truck - I like the 40-41 body style the best in these older trucks.

Do you know what the tool is? I would like to get it off. No, I haven't finished my column yet.

I'm messing with tire size on the front of my 47 (1/2). Since you lowered and the tires are tucked in the front fenders, is there a steering clearance problem now ?

Thanks Joe Chevy. I will pick one of those up.

Complit1107, I am a bit nervous about tire rub. I have loosely attached the fenders so I'm not quite sure yet. One I get them buttoned up then I'll have a better idea. Because it's a Nova front clip, the attachment for the front portion of the fenders has been rigged. I have to work out a better attachment and that might help as well. It has a second issue of the inner fenders have been cut to accomodate the modern A- Arms and such. Lots of variables.

Question door handles and seats

Hi Red,
I have a 1940 one ton, have 2 questions,

how do you remove the interior door and window handles?

also, I have the old, rusted seat frame, is it possible yo get it "reworked"? or is there an easier alternative for seating - prefer a bench seat with 3 seat belts if possible.

thanks for the advice,
mpr

mprsox,
My truck already has aftermarket handles on it so I am no help with that one. I know there are some guys on here that have factoy manuals that could possibly help.

In regards to seating, I'm not sure if a kit is made for that type of truck. If the seat frame is in good shape, an auto upholsterer could be the ticket. I have a set of mustang seats in mine on a platform that hides the battery. It is hinged to open forward for easy access to it. Sorry, I'm not much help.

To remove the handles, at the base of the handle (both window and door) where it goes from fat to narrow at the estuchion plate, there is a "c" clip on the narrow portion. You have to push in on the estuchion to "poke" out the clip.

My BAD ! They are actually pinned. Here are some shots showing the holes...



Close up sucks... but



I Think I just used an awl to push [tap] out (or a small nail)

Good luck.. P.S. Macs shows them all to be similar (38-47) in mount, however a little different in shape.
The one shown is a 42-47

After three weeks I went over and put some work in this weekend. I got the new plug wires (8.5mm MSD wires)put on and reattached the exhaust hoping it would start. I took the steering column apart so I could try and get rid of the chevy turn signal arm and it still won't work. On the positive side, I put new endlinks and bushing on the swaybar and reattached it and got the new master cyclinder and booster in. I brought the running boards over from my house and got the drivers side on but the passenger side wouldn't go. I don't have as much room on that side so that can be part of the problem.

Bill, I just want to get it on my street and out of the garage. It is far from road ready yet. We'll see though. I still have to do the rear end yet.
