No worries bantamj,

there must be nearly 100 drawings which provide long sought after detail and obsolescence notes as well.

Awesome......there should be no excuses from repro manufacturers now.
The front GPW spring drawing has every conceivable detail required including how to temper and quench the leaves.
Interesting that they specify the Willys style spring keepers as “ optional” though ive never seen them in my travels....

Hey Bill
That's a fantastic boost to research thanks so much for bringing my attention to the tool box seals. Very interesting to see that the cork laminate was mentioned way back in 42. But that they don't seem to appear on gpws until really during 45. Thanks again mate :)
regards Nick
ps Hope to catch up with you when I'm out to Oz at Christmas?

Hello Bill,

I am looking into having a high resolution pdf of the frame drawing shown on the site you refer to.

Is there a way to get it?

Hi Bill M.

Thanks for posting the link and compiling the drawing list !!! It has very difficult having Hi-Res copies of Ford GPW parts and data and not being able to share them openly with the MV hobby due to the Henry Ford Archives own policies over the past decade . These low res copies are a good start on the Archives part. Funding to do this has been a issue for some time. I would guess that the massive dollar amount that has been spent over the last 2 years or so by a certain parts reproduction business whose goal is get it right the first time, so the avg. JOE does not end up buying junk, by using the actual parts drawings may be helping this effort along.
