Early Ford V-8 Club Forum

FORUM RULES: Users agree to these Rules when using Forum.

The site administrator reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the user agreement without prior notice to the user. It is the responsibility of the user to regularly review the terms of this agreement.

The user agrees to the following terms:

  1. All information that you provide to us for your membership is correct.
  2. You will not use your membership to spam, harrass, or exploit other members in any way.
  3. Vulgar, Abusive, Racist and Sexist Language will not be tolerated.
  4. Commercial-type sales postings will not be allowed.
  5. No mass posting or flooding of the boards is allowed.
  6. No Advertising of parts or cars; no Ebay or business/commercial ads (please use the "Classified" for ads Wanted or For Sale).
  7. VIEWING MULTIPLE TOPICS ON SCREEN: You can choose to see more than 10 Topics at a time ... Log In and choose "Preferences" from the top bar on the Forum page. Scroll down and Change the "Default Topics Returned" parameter to 25 or 50, and save the changes. Since this setting is stored in your browser 'cookies' (if enabled), it seems to use that stored value even if you are not logged in. So, if you use a PC that you haven't logged into the forum from, the setting still seem to remain at the default.
  8. EXTERNAL PHOTO LINKS ON FORUM: You can still use external photo links in your posts on the new forum. They follow the rules of any link in that they have to have the URL link qualified down to the full image file name (example: .jpg). The links will open in a new browser window, the same as an uploaded image attached to a post. Since an image attachment to any post does not display inline with the post, the results are the same. You can use multiple external links within a post. This link is from photos on a site from Don Clink's 'Deuce@75' albums:

    http://donclink.com/deuce_75_1/images/dscn2950.jpg

    Using links from photo sites such as Photobucket can help in "size" issue with uploaded attachment files. For best viewing in web browsers, photos should be around the 800x600 pixel range, and probably not more than 1024x768. Most cameras today store HUGE jpg image files, as the default settings are in the 7, 8, 10, and 12Mb image sizes. The image files that are then attached are very large, and the browser can't display the full image size without using the scroll bars. Use the re-sizing functions of your photo editing software to reduce the image to 800x600, which reduces the file sixe and the image load time in the browser. Don uses Google's free Picassa3 software, which is an excellent photo management product. All of the photo albums of the Deuce, Grand National, and Auburn that are links on the NORG site were built using Picassa's web creation functions. And it's free? (THANKS to Don Clink for the info!)
  9. HOW DO I SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH MY USERNAME? You can LogIn on the Forum, and select PREFERENCES. On this page Members can add optional information such as their City,State, Country; Occupation; Hobbies: list a Homepage; list AOL Instant Messanger Handle; Signature; "Make Email Address viewable to others;" and even change the number of Default Topics shown on a page. WHEN others click on your profile, they will see this information.

Does anyone have a pic of how the steering box mounts to the frame on a 34 model b truck. My father and I are in the process of putting an old truck back together and I’m having a hard time finding schematic or parts diagrams.
Any ideas would be appreciated or links to where I could find and info.

The steering mounts to the frame with 3 bolts. All of the holes are there assuming you have the right parts (how about a photo?). The answer seems to be too straight forward, maybe I don't understand your question. Are you stopped at a particular point?

Do you have a pickup truck (built on the passenger car chassis) or a large truck? Since you said B and not BB I assume it is the smaller truck.

You should get a copy of the club's book on '33-'34 Fords. It is mostly about the passenger cars but much of the information is the same.

Put your general location and email into your profile, you can never tell how or when it will pay off.

attached is a pic of the steering box and how I mounted it. It seems like the linkage is not sliding on the spline all the way. does it look correct to you?

It looks like you have a V-8 as your engine, if so, you have a model 46 not a model B. The model B was a 4 cylinder. Any way, your mounting looks right. I have '34 pickup I restored and a photo of my pickup in the Galleries.

Feel free to E-mail about any other questions.

Thank for the invite and the information on your club. I will also pass this on to my father who is retired and a classic car fan. He might have a chance to connect with your club.

The Model 46 was commercial and was available either with a V8 or 4 cylinder engine. If you have questions please post them and NOT email them. This allows others to benefit from the information and also allows other people to see the answers and correct them if necessary.
