The final assembly line includes putting major components, such as engine, transmission, and body, onto the rolling chassis, as well as installing mechanical components.

This manual describes the parts used in assembly, often identifying what they’re made of and how they are sealed. Sometimes, you’ll learn specific instructions for a how a part is installed. Or, you’ll find out tips to take special care in cleaning, adjusting, or sealing a part to prevent problems. You’ll see specifications for adjusting and lubricating parts. Sometimes you’ll see tests to make sure a part is installed properly.

You will also find instructions for dozens of step-by-step procedures. For example, you will find out how to position the engine, axle, and body brackets within the frame. Learn how to make adjustments, such as suspension caster and camber, front wheel bearings, and brake shoes. See instructions for tests to make sure of quality assembly, including carrier assembly test, water pump test, checking clutch driven member damper action, brake troubleshooting, clutch troubleshooting, shifter noise troubleshooting, and engine block testing. Find out how to install tie rods, front shock absorbers, rear springs, engine crank case, main bearing gap, connecting rod and piston assembly, cylinder heads, transmission controls, running boards, hood, instrument panel. You'll even find instructions for painting parts like the engine and steering gear.

You’ll see plenty of specifications, such as tie rods, front springs, gear and pinion, rear axle shafts, rear axle carrier, clearance for piston to cylinder block fitting, plus 6 pages of torque specifications. You'll see identification charts listing specifications and descriptions by model with part numbers for: rear axle housing, propeller shaft, rear springs, rear shock absorbers, brake shoes, hand brake cables, motor support cushions, clutch, transmission control shift rods, fuel lines, steering gear, steering column support brackets, wheels, tires, fenders, and radiator tie rods.

The book occasionally references drawings or specs which are in other books. This book was made from a typewritten copy. Nearly all the words are readable, but the original type sometimes has gaps in the letters, so the print quality isn't perfect. Each page is watermarked, please see the sample page.
