    I have it going into the mechanism from the inside of the cab to the outside. That is to say, I have the bolt, then spring, then small washer thru the link that is fastened to the vent door, then the threaded spacer with checkered face facing the grooved edge of the vent length, then the spacer small diameter thru the opening handle and then the larger washer and lock nut on the outside of the opening handle. I saw a post on another forum that showed the bolt and spring going in from the outside to the middle of the truck, thru the opening handle first, then threaded into the spacer, then thru the link to the door, then the washer and locknut. This just seems "wrong" to me as I think the spring would be required to tension the checkered spacer face against the grooved link to the door. Do you recall which way that assembly goes?

    This is going to be a two part it is long. Bob, I read your post about removing the cowl vent on the 49-52 F series truck and made a fatal mistake prior to reading your text. It has to do with the orientation/order of assembly of the pivot bolt, washer, spring, threaded spacer, 2nd washer and locknut......and I made no pictures. :-)

    I got the vent in/out, replaced the gasket but seem to be having trouble getting the assembly adjusted so the vent will both stay up and latch closed. The pivot bolt seems to be the critical player and I am wondering if I have reassembled mine correctly. 2nd part to follow:

    Hi Bob I saw one of your posts about possibly having a Crank Pulley for a 1948 - 1951 Truck wide belt? I have a dual pulley on my tractor and the outer pulley is crack and looking for a replacement. I only use the inner pulley. Thanks for your help. Doug R.

    Hi Bob. I've been swamped of late as we sold the house and have been packing and all that stuff that goes along with it. I was wondering if you still have the tee shirt from the TS14 I ordered? If not no problem is so can I send you a SASE so you can send it to me? Hope all is going well in the job. Dave S
