WINDSHEILD FRAME ASSEMBLY 37 - 39 FORD a beauty!

WINDSHIELD FRAME ASSEMBLY

Re: Water Pump

I have listed a number of them (six) on eBay for $1 for all six. All shipped within a large flat rate box. NO takers for $1.

Re: 1936 Ford Roadster Wind Wing Installation

Don, as always you really come through.

Re: what position for lower rad hose nipple mount ?

51MERC has graciously included a very good drawing. You can easily see the nipple is installed at an approximate 45 angle.
