    Oil Filter Gasket

    my canister is kinda rough on the top edge, the only thing I have found to work is cork, but I hand cut them because as you have read so far there doesn't seem to be ready made gasket. On the top where the bolt goes through I use fibreboard gasket, also hand cut.

    missing on couple cylinders

    pull the number one plug, connect the lead, clamp or secure the plug to the block and crank it over. If no spark you have a problem with the lead or the Distributor.

    My original CARTER fuel pump.

    a difficult number to find. I think the ratio is 6.6:1 but don't know how to calculate the compression

    My original CARTER fuel pump.

    I think on these motors you need a difference of 25 to be definite valves, I think 5-10 difference between cylinders is within limits

    Strange sound

    there is a grease fitting on the clutch base (where the bushing goes), but its possible that the clutch pedal is making contact with the steel of the toeboard. Mine does that on release it is a very loud sound, I like it because it lets the pedestrians know to hurry up.

    Movies with Pilot House Trucks

    " Bad Times at the El Royale" featuring Jeff Bridges, Russell Crowe Chris Hemsworth, and my truck. Filming here in BC, but it will be Lake Tahoe 1960 when it comes out. The armoured car is the wheels in the air background The fake snow has been a real PTA to clean, it is like a globby gelatin paper spitball

    My original CARTER fuel pump.

    so how often do you get to drive your Truck?
  9. yes the inner steering shaft is threaded for the steering wheel at the top and a worm gear at the bottom (inside the gear box) so basically it is all one piece
  10. as for the steering box, unless you have a hoist, I found you need to remove toeboard, to pull box into the cab

    My original CARTER fuel pump.

    I might be wrong, but if you assembled the base with only one gasket you will increase the spring tension, creating a stronger fuel pressure? The rubber stays fixed, and the metal disc (diaphram center) gets pulled down by the lever and the spring pushes it back up, so more spring tension the faster the return. So this should work with one gasket

    My original CARTER fuel pump.

    the new one looks taller with one more loop of spring (or maybe same height with a tighter wind to the spring), might give stronger pump?

    Tail Light - What is This?

    there is a connector on the frame before the taillights, it is a hard plastic (maybe bakelite) using barrel connectors on the wires. The rubber hose has been added, there are clips that hold the wiring to the frame maybe they broke off and the hose was anti-chaffing? but with a PO its just a guess.

    Wheel Cylinders And Shoes

    I had mine relined at a local forklift shop. As for wheel cylinders, you can get the raybestas for $60 Canadian which worked really good, or the napa for less (but I had trouble with the angle the line came in and had to move the two Napa ones to the front as it uses the rubber flex lines) Napa UP 3596 and UP 3595, Raybesta WC3596 and WC3595. So now I got two Napa on the front and two raybestas on the back
