Re: Open car chrome plated trico wiper motor

Thanks for the additional photos as they are informative. Having had a fair number of the '32-'34 open car wiper motors, my conclusion is that it was re-plated as the vendor has now admitted. But...

Re: Open car chrome plated trico wiper motor

To give you an opinion on whether the motor in the photo in #26 has been re-plated, I would need to see a photo of the front and back. They don't re-plate readily and the warts tend to show up on...

Re: Open car chrome plated trico wiper motor

It's not completely out of the realm of possibility given that the '33-'34 closed cars had that feature

Re: Open car chrome plated trico wiper motor

If memory serves me right, one of the pre-'35 Ford of Canada Service Bulletins has an exploded view of a pre-'35 phaeton/roadster wiper motor with a speed control of the same kind of control...

Re: Engine Identification '34 Ford

Thanks for the informative photos.

With the notable exceptions of the horn, ignition coil, and carburetor, everything looks to be of Ford origin. One Ford item that has been replaced over the...

Re: Engine Identification '34 Ford

While granted that more '35s were produced than '34s, folks must have really liked the '35 version as their survival rate seems to be extraordinarily high.

Re: Engine Identification '34 Ford

Which is easily confused with the '35 locking cap. As shown in Robert's photos, the width of the depressed area of the oval is wider on the ends while on the '35 cap the width of the depressed area...

Re: Open car chrome plated trico wiper motor

The two above, while for Model As, are post-late '32 service replacements as the originals has screwed on covers.

Re: 32 3W male door dovetail finish

Tom,

It may not be there per se, but it is implied in the hardware catalog portion of the Appendix (page A-11-7) and consistent with survivors and lots of NOS ones. After '32 they seem to have a...

Re: Engine Identification '34 Ford

Robert,

On the subject of bumper guards, while they will fit on a '33 bumper as on that station wagon in your photo in #26 (but not perfectly vertical as intended), they are '34 parts for use with...

Re: Engine Identification '34 Ford

Once you ditch the bumper guards on the car in the photos, it's your choice whether to have them or not as they were optional at extra cost originally.

Re: Engine Identification '34 Ford

Terry,

No doubt you had a V8 in mind as there are not engine numbers on '32-'34 four-cylinder transmission cases, only on the separate upper bell housing.


Robert,

Yes, the four-cylinder...

Re: Open car chrome plated trico wiper motor

Late '32 wiper motors had snap on covers like the '33-'34s. The change took place concurrent with the change in wiper blades and wiper arms (in how they attached to one another).

Re: Engine Identification '34 Ford

Today might be your lucky day as I have a spare set of NOS '34-only four-cylinder hub caps as in Robert's photo above (but with the blue paint intact). Please send me a p.m. if you are interested.

Re: Engine Identification '34 Ford

Everything that distinguishes a '33-'34 four from a '32 four is a bolt-on part. The so-called short block (cylinder block, crankshaft, camshaft, pistons, connecting rods, etc.) is the same for all...

Re: Model A shocks fit a '32 Ford?

True '32 shocks that can be restored are becoming rarer than hen's teeth, so please count me as one with an interest in their developing a '32 version (1/4" taller than the Model A shock).

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,

I have one of those 4" pieces of window channel as well. Neither is of much use as they are broken off a much longer whole channel. There's an excellent reproduction of the '32-'34 closed...
