step by step we're getting somewhere
the list is shortening, driverside runningboard, right doorhandle and that's about it..
busy on the chassis and the engine.. making some room to work on it properly..
engineworks.. slightly releaved and freshly honed..
last dirtywork is the valveseat grinding.. then I'm about ready to build it up again.
clean it up, degrease first, then the classic stuff of cam (schneider) and valves etc etc..
the dashboard also has seen better days.. so now I'm looking for replacement meters.
anybody has an idea what meter was originally in the right hole? there was a modern voltmeter built into it..
I would think that the right hole would have a dual guage like the left side. Water temp and amp or oil pressure and amp. I don't think there would be a voltmeter in there.
Here is apicture of my '36 dodge dash gauges. You can see Amps & Heat on the right. With a litlle grinding, you can get new 3.25" gauges to fit. I researched all I could find, but they are all too deep to clear the cowl vent mechanism, and I wouldn't want to lose that. So i just use the stock gauges.
ahah, great to have that picture! I'll see what can be found over here, and what ends up in it.
thanks for the efford!
what a cool truck, congrats! ~sololobo~
derusting chassisparts with electrolyse process.. works like a charm without rubbing or scratching and so.. put em in the bath turn on the swith and that's it..
now thinking about building a bed to put my whole chassis in to do the same with it
two to go, I put them in the bath as they are, since there's no holes in them.
letters came out véry nice even if I say so myself..
just slightly brushed off, and put ac-50 on it to prevent rusting befor I paint them..
all four done now, ready for paint, next week I'll start on the preparations for the electrolysis of the flathead waterjackets, and of the entire chassis.. thats gonna give some fine pictures too I guess
forgot to post it , but there's news here:
