Re: Install radiator hardware?

So, it doesn't matter if the bolt comes up thru from the bottom or down thru from the top?
I think I did it your way, Drolston. Been so long i can't remember how I did it. Terry

Re: Oil level. Is your dipstick lying? Make sure you know what you've got.

Just to add more to this, it might have been mentioned already but a lot of the early dipsticks had some kind of gasket material under that round portion just below the curve at the top. Maybe it was...

Re: Wood top ribs question

I'm assuming that all the closed cars for 36 had the chicken wire. And over the wire there was a thin padding material before the long grained top fabric goes on. I'm getting this from the 35-36 Ford...

Re: Inner Tubes for Radials?

Re: Another dumb question?

Thanks Coopman. You helped a lot 'cause I didn't even think about the "C" And "T" letters either. Terry

Another dumb question?

Looking at flathead engine specs, I noticed that with the exception of the '34 ford (40A) there is no A at the end of the model #s Till 1938 (81A). Then they all end in "A" until 1949 (98BA). What...

Re: No door key

Phil, I replaced my door lock cylinder several years ago and resigned to having to use 2 different keys. Is there such a thing as getting a key that would also work on the ignition cylinder without...

Re: Choke/throttle rods set up

Same trouble with the throttle on my "36. Somebody said they used a clothes pin to keep it in place. Maybe i'll just do the same. Terry

Re: Generator Pulley fitting an Alternator Question

About the heat, try it both ways and feel the alternator with your hand. I think about 10 miles with each pully would tell you a lot about whether the alternator is overheating. Terry

Re: R3 Generator - cutout, voltage .....

For what it's worth, I had my 3 brush generator exchanged for a similar one that was converted to 2 brush and 12v. I kept this type of gen so i could still attach the fan to the
generator pulley....

Re: R3 Generator - cutout, voltage .....

I used a 12v pos regulator from Fun projects for many years. The problem is that you will need to adjust amps with the 3rd brush to around 9 amps maximum. The reg finally went bad, perhaps 'cause i...

Re: 39 coupe interior

If I'm reading you both right, sounds to me that the mat and insulation were put down separately on an original 39. When i took old mats out of front and back of my 36 sedan, they were one...

Re: Charging System Will Not Work Under A Load

Has the car been converted to halogen lamps? These require more amps than the originals. Terry

Re: Charging System Will Not Work Under A Load

It looks to me that there is only one connection on the back of the cutout. Is there also a wire coming out of the generator back there that should ground to the generator?

Re: 1936 slant back parking light sockets.

Mac's offers a turn signal conversion kit with wires. It says you must drill a hole in the reflector that's 3/4", but the 36 already has that hole...don't know its diameter, though. Terry

Re: Gas Tank Fuel Gauge reading question

Given the density figures you gave, I'm thinking your gauge would read a little low. The oil that gas comes from floats on top of water. Just guessing. Terry
