Re: Heater in 36 Ford

If you put it behind the gear shift, you may interfere with gas pedal linkage, and how you gona get hoses to it. Better to put it in front of the passenger like shown in johndee's shot.

Re: Finding a list of issued tools on a 36 Ford

You mean this one? Unfortunately I can't remember where I got it, but it was advertised in one of the V8 Times some time ago.

There is also a web site for Trunk Back Convertible Sedans.

Re: Finding a list of issued tools on a 36 Ford

Re: 39 pedals in a 36 frame

I just drilled the steering box plate out of my '36 and bolted the '37 in. Lots of drilling, started with a small bit and worked my way up. I did not have to get under the car. I was able to drill...

50/50 antifreeze and Water Wetter

So I now have a new radiator, new motor, new water pumps from Skip.

Should I use 50/50 antifreeze or straight stuff and buy distilled water?

Anyone use the Water Wetter stuff and does it...

Re: Any demand for 3 3/4 8BA cranks

Thanks everyone. I talked to one of our local flat head guys. He has 8 in the corner and does not want a 9th one. I might get a nickel for it at the scrapper.

Any demand for 3 3/4 8BA cranks

I know they are too heavy to ship, but I put a 4 inch mercury crank in my 8BA. I have no use for the 3 3/4, 20 under I think. Should I try to sell it locally or let it go to the scrapper?

Re: Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, California in 1935

Some Barner must live in that area and recognize just where that is. It would be great to see a current day comparison.

3 wire speaker, 3rd wire?

Anyone know what the 3rd wire is for on the early speakers? I don't have a wiring diagram.

It needed to be re-coned, the speaker guy took it apart and does not know how to put it back together.

Re: Banjo Steering Wheel Question

It is just interesting that two steering wheels would have identical defects. Mine is on the left.

Banjo Steering Wheel Question

So I have a banjo steering wheel which is correct for my '36 deluxe. The spacers are not all in the same place. A quick look on line tells me they should all be centered. None of mine are. I tried...

Re: Bad New Year Start

Look at the bright side, You'll heal. How is the car?

And in Denver, a whole town got burned, some 600-1000 homes. Don't know an exact number yet. Now we have to wait for the snow to melt.

Re: King pin puller

The King Pin tool does look similar to the Model A Hinge Pin pusher. But as another Barner and I found, it does not have the correct clearance to fit around the rain gutter on the '39.

I have not...

Re: 3.54 and a Columbia?

I like the Mitchell, just don't want to cut a hole in the trunk to make it clear.

3.54 and a Columbia?

My 36 has a 3.54 rear end. At 60 mph I am taching 3000 RPMs and the engine sounds like that is all it has. It sounds like it wants a 4th gear to keep up with modern traffic at 70 mph.

But all the...

Re: 8BA engine number location

Finally got by the block shop. He has milled everything to make it flat and beautiful, unfortunately, not many numbers left and none of them are in a row.
