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.

Hello,
Looking for drawings or pics of the hi beam lite assembly for 40,41 3/4 ton pickup. I have some pieces, not all.
Big thanks ahead of time.
Den

As I recall it should be the same as '40 passenger car. Most of the V-8 parts vendors carry the parts.

I posted a link to the sales brochure that has an artist representation of the head light in the General Ford Discussion. Here is a link to a photo of a truck for sale.

The piece/part I am looking for pics of is the dash lite assembly that illuminates the hi beam indicator as mounted above the instrument panel. It is a lite socket that latches onto the little red indicator, and so far either have too many parts and pieces or some of the wrong parts and pieces. I know there is an aftermarket replacement available. I simply prefer using the original pieces if at all possible. This truck is nearly complete now, after 11 yrs. I found a small parts listing in the "green book", but no pics.

Do your parts look like these in the Drake catalog? if not can you attach a photo of what you have along with the P/Ns so we can help you?

This is where the Hi beam goes.
So far 11 yrs on this resto. Used 2 very old trucks to begin with. Both in severe bad shape.

It looks like you have all of the parts except the shield. The Chassis Parts Catalogs for 1939, 1940 and 1942 do not have a drawing of the parts, so I don't know what the shield looks like. The Green Book says the parts for 1940-1947 are the same P/N, so maybe someone that has one of those years will have a better idea of what you need.

Tom, the assembly is assembled and in place. The shield is the 2nd from lft, then spring that fits inside it, then the 4 legged plate that sits on spring, then the "cover plate. Compress all this into the shield, (can) and fold those tabs over, (the canister tabs). now the can has 4 sprring loaded tabs sticking out. Instrument panel of course needs to be out. Press this spring loaded canister against back of dash and fanagle the hi beam piece at hole in dash and slipping it into slot in the cover plate and Bob's your uncle, or words to that effect.
