  1. Dad had 2 vehicles done at a shop in Pine City MN but I don't think the owner is doing much these days. I've heard good things about Elk River Collision. I'm not aware of anything further south towards you.

    Cranbrook Sedan vs convertible similarities

    I do know where there is a p23 convert in a junkyard but there isn't much left of it. However I do believe both seat frames are sitting there.

    Differential Vent?

    what's always amazed me is how far into the 60s they were still using the DPCD logo when one of the Ds didn't exist anymore!

    Differential Vent?

    yup multipurpose bolt. It also holds on the T for the rear brake lines.

    Cranbrook Sedan vs convertible similarities

    you can get the front seat out of a 2 door but I believe the back seat is convertible only. It's more narrow because of the top wells on each side of the seat. You might be able to cut down a sedan back seat to make it work. Beyond that the frame on the convert has extra bracing and some of the floor pan is different on the convert too.

    haha looks like it's only missing 1 door. from the rocker it sure looks like a solid body. you could do worse I bet.....

    crankshaft question

    I think the 218 8bolt cranks came out of fluid drive trucks. Mine is certainly in a pilot house era truck block.

    crankshaft question

    you might still have issues but I have a 8 bolt crank in my project 47 using a 4 bolt flywheel.

    P15 dash headlight switch 910507 vs 990547

    you are correct. the p15 uses I believe a 30amp fuse. they are a little bit of an oddball fuse being longer than a normal 30. However when I had an issue in Detroit and was popping them like PEZ I was able to find them in stock at a local parts store. They point down and it is very easy to reach behind the control panel and change one out.

    1939 business coupe build

    not sure how pointing out a safety issue isn't constructive
  11. As Dr said I don't believe you can install the pump incorrectly and have it function at all. Not sure you can even install it incorrectly and have it not function. So that leaves restriction in the line somewhere, sucking air somewhere, or a weak pump. Do you have new fuel lines? Do you have fuel filters somewhere?

    New to me 1947 WD-21

    you can buy a reproduction tag and stamp the data onto it. oh and your plate that didn't work in the decoder is likely the cab #. Should start with 41. The next number represents what type of cab(enclosed cowl only etc) and then a manufacturer ID #.
  13. yup happens to mine too. Typically from other members of the household....... right now it's got an inflatable pool on it!
  14. Even for practice it's a brave man that takes a transmission apart over dirt! We had rain almost all day so I didn't get anything done on my trucks either.
  15. Not sure if I should applaud Merle for helping or give him crap that it's work on your truck day not work on someone else's truck day....
