Re: hub caps

Depending on where you lived, just as popular were the mid-fifties Oldsmobile three spinner wheel covers.

Re: To all a good night :)

Were it always "something goes well" as old Ford restorations have at least their fair share of the other variety.

Re: 1933/34 dual gauge temp sender unit (hose part).

The large lower section that inserts into the radiator hose is a one-piece machined brass casting.

Re: 1933/34 dual gauge temp sender unit (hose part).

Those are heater hose fittings; an original fitting for the temperature probe is shown in the photo in #14 above. Note the thread area where the gauge is attached.

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Robert,


I only use six point sockets and box wrenches and only new or near new screw drivers. Perhaps Mike does something similar. I also spray all of the S2 finish fasteners with silicone...

Black-painted '33-'34 phaetons and roadsters are original on Australian-produced versions as well on the North American standard versions.

Re: 34 Phaeton Top Irons

There's only one way to do it and have it come out well and that is to take it apart, have new stainless steel rivets made and then reassembled. But do not disassemble both sides at once. Do one...

Re: Glove Box Spring Question

What you have according to your photo is original to most '35 and all '36 phaetons and roadsters, unlike for the closed body types and cabriolets. The spring does not go under the bottom edge of the...

Graham,

Most of the originals that I have encountered were made entirely of brass with the part that fits inside the radiator hose cast to create a lip surrounding the threaded portion to affect a...

Re: Help identifying EV8 parts

Tim,

With respect, it is not a '32 column drop, but rather of a later vintage with a different on/off plate and lever and wider spacing of the attachment holes on top.

The one at the top of...

Re: 33 ignition switch

The parts catalogs only list parts that were serviced, not every last part that made up the whole. The subject plate evidently was not offered as a service part.

Re: I pickup a old Firestone Tire 18 inch

It appears to have a post-WWII tread design. It's for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles.

Re: 32 3w question

Re: I pickup a old Firestone Tire 18 inch

It's not original '32 equipment as that would be a 5.25 x 18 tire, not 5.25/5.50. Where was the tire manufactured (that's also molded into the sidewall near the outer edge). The three likely...
