  6. hi i am a new member to the hmvf i have a question to ask ,about a problem that i am having with one of my truck after taking it out of winter storage and getting it ready for the season. as i know there is a great deal of knowledge out there on this forum . Well here it is i have a 1943 wot6 running the standard v8 and standard fordson axles and shocks .took the truck out on the road just for a short run only to find that it has got whats like a death wobbel on the front end it was running fine then all of a sudden it started to shake the steering wheel and feel like the wheels were lose,i slowed the truck down to a crawl which helped to stop the shaking and after a quick check of every thing on the front end to make sure all was right and there was not some thing worked loose, i started off again there was a very slit shimy which then went away ,i kept the speed down to under 20 mph to get her back to the barn safely. i have never had this before with this truck or any others that i have so i not sure were to look or what to look for to track down what has made this happen .i have parked her up for now and will take a more closer look at things this weekend ,as there is know way that it can be used doing this or go on the road like it . the truck was at 30mph on the speedo at the time and had just gone over a rough bit of road surface before hand ,the whole cab and truck shook it is not a thing i what to happen again. if anyone out there has had this happen and managed to sort it out before could tell me were to start looking ,as of this moment it looking like working through the front axle and bearings tractor joints tyres and steering ,track rod ends to see if there is anything needing replacing or ajusting plus the tyres as there is not much you can do on a wet sunday after noon after being shaken up buy this .fingers crossed someone out there maybe able to give some pointers
