I purchased these from Jim Carter for my 1946 1/2 ton. Does anyone have pictures of them installed on their truck? Have contacted them this weekend, but do not expect an answer until tomorrow.

I don't have pics, but would like a set for my truck... I've had both sides slam at different points from the wind.

One truck I looked at the owner had a stick to hold it open.

I've seen some supports at The Filling Station, and if yours are like those I'd like to see how they work.

I've seen people take the hoods on these 'decos off completely when they're working on the engine. I found out quickly why...;)

Keith,

I'm sure you figured it out by now, but just to keep this info with this thread, here's a link to an article on the classychevyusa.com site:

http://www.classychevusa.com/p_results.cfm?mode=pr...

And let's see if I can attach a couple pics from that article:

Jim Carter did send a picture. Looks like the same truck as the pictures you found. My buddy and I had figured out where they went. Just wonder how to keep them from sliding down the rod. If the threads are long enough could probably put a nut at the end of the threads to act as a stop. Will have to wait and see once we start putting them on.

Keith,

In that bottom pic above it looks like a nut with a washer to hold the stop back. Given the price of them, you would think you would get a nut and washer so you could install them, but...
