  1. My 1 1/2” fender clip bolts, are not 5/16 - 24 thread THEY ARE 3/8 - 24 thread
  2. I just bought the J speed nuts from Tractor Supply here in Ohio. 2 in a package $1.49 also I bought (2 ) 1 1/4 x 5/16 - 24 fine thread from Fastenall today. $3.95 but, Tractor Supply had the (2) 1 1/2 (exact replacement) in a package for $2.99... for
  3. Thanks for the quick replies. So, I will need to mount it back on the truck and linkage all hooked up to adjust it. First off, oil/grease was mentioned, Is there a fill plug and or a way to know if it is full? (Like the rear axle) Then to adjust it, just snug it down to have a bit of drag on the turning when the wheels are straight ahead ? Thanks again.
  4. 1948 Dodge B1D in a barn since 84 washed out this “Arvin” heater and then blew all the mouse crap and lots of mud dauber nests. Replaced the bare wire lead and oiled the motor the best I could. It runs well and the variable control knob lights up too. Painted a little and clear coated he outside of the housing. Exciting
  5. I’m interested in this also I’m ready to re-install the steering wheel and steering box soon in a Pilothouse B1D flatbed I’m betting it would need some play taken out of it. Thanks in advance.
  6. I am in the process of my first transmission install after putting on a new clutch,pilot bearing and cleaned up flywheel. These post have given us some insight on how to get the throw out bearing and spring installed. I did purchase an alignment tool for $8.00. Thank to to your post we should attempt it this week on a 1948 B1D
  7. I just used the grease with toilet tissue while hitting a 3 1/2 inch bolt to remove a pilot bushing. It worked unbelievably well, and quick. I bought a new clutch assembly that included the new bushing, but the new bushing was a “thicker wall” than the original. I found an exact bushing from McMaster-Carr..$2.33. that was like the original.
  8. Thank you Zen Master ,,!,! After digging through all the crud, I was able to find the bolts. They came right off and I proceeded to take the engine and transmission out altogether in 1piece. This is a dually stake body truck that had sit since 1978 in a Kansas barn. My 15 year old grandson (Gaige) bought it for a dollar and trailered it to Ohio with his dad. But his interest seems to fade in and out to work on it. By far, I have never done a project like this before, so, I will have plenty of questions. I hope you all don’t mind. Thanks again.
  9. Thanks for the parts blow up picture. I am not at home currently, but I am going to re-check for top plate bolts. My son in law and I sure didn’t see any earlier. Thank you.
  10. There is not a top plate. There is a pin from the passenger side. But it is pretty much flush with the shifter housing. It does not have a screwdriver slot or any thing on it.
  11. I am trying to pull the engine out with the transmission attached. All bolts, master cylinder, foot pedals are off. I am just stuck getting the shifter off. I thought it would be something simple. Any help would be appreciated.
  12. How do I remove the gear shifter on the transmission. It is located on the top of the transmission.
