Re: front shocks

IMO: Empty the old fluid (if there is any) and refill with Marvel Mystery Oil and then empty and refill with Jack fluid. Work the shock back and forth to the extremes in each step.

Re: Removing shackle shells, KRW BV-121 & V-170

Make a insert that is .030" smaller than the bore and pull the insert through the shackle hole to remove the remains of the old shell. Knurling is not necessary.

Re: Fuel pump stand - what's up?

There should be 4 baffles in the metal fill tube. Get rid of the blockage since it will block oil fill and it is not supposed to be there.

Re: starter solenoid

No starter solenoid on the 32-35 Fords. The 32 horn appears to get its battery power from the light switch using the wiring diagram above and the ground path is from the light switch also.

Re: Transmission Oil

There is no SFE weight mentioned. I would stay away from it and use NAPA SL-24238 140W GL-4

No issue as to how it is wired now, as temporary wiring, it should work. Can not speak as to the rest of the ignition circuit.

Re: No door key

The original door lock cylinder has a key code stamped on it. If you remove the cylinder you can have another key made for it.

Re: Oil pump & pan?

Should be less than 3/4" to the pick up . Your photos appear correct. Can you tell if it is touching the pan? Your pan doesn't look like 36.

Re: 36 Tudor wiper question

I suggest if the screw comes our of the arm when loosened, before it comes out too much try light taps on the screw head since the screw may be holding a wedge device.

Re: Transmission 2nd Gear Condition Question

I would not use the input shaft since the syncro teeth are too worn width wise. Another point is often you will see what appears as damage on the syncro teeth. Carefully look at the main gear teeth...

Re: halibrand models

If you like the look take a look at the Don Orasco web site for their differential center section. You don't have to modify the rear crossmember.

You can grind off every other lobe of the cam but where do you start, what lobe? So be careful. You may have to modify the points slightly to get the wires to attach with the lock washers and nuts....

Re: rear differential ratio

Some of the rear differentials have identifying letters, in stead of the the numbers, stamped which identify the original ratio.

Re: Lost voltage to coil while cranking

Charge up your battery and take it to your local auto parts store to have it load checked. It's free of charge. Many battery's fail under loaded conditions only.
