Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

I'm always impressed by you metal worker types. I'm more a wood guy and I look at metal forming as magic. Those are some serious jacks!

What is that flat squareish thing attached to the right-side frame rail with a clipped corner and a white label on it in pictures 5 & 7?

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hey Tango, I doubt I could teach you anything--I've seen your work. When I get the '35 done I'd love to run it to Texas and compare notes.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Roach711, You've got sharp eyes to see that thing. It is the ABS brake computer. This old girl had mechanical brakes with a vacuum assist with a valve mounted to the steering column to modulate it's action. I guess that a 4 spd tranny, a 2 spd rear end and a 60 hp motor didn't keep the driver in panic mode so they added vacuum assist to the brakes to up the stress level a little I'm way too lazy for all that!

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hey Trunt --- you and that gal of yours are welcome anytime. Would love to see it in person and it appears you'll be on the road long before me. if you're headed down this way, give a shout and I'll make sure to stock up on tasty beverages.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hi Tango, Beverages? OOh! I'll have to work extra hard now I got the steering column and the brake booster fabricated this weekend. All I had to do was sort of make a mirror image of the original part and lop off some redundant brackets. Tomorrow I will mock up my handy work and see if it still makes sense Thanks for the invite and we'll take you up on it as soon as I get the thing finished enough to use--probably the better part of a year as slow work takes time!?!
