Re: 37 muffler

Waldrens seems to have good prices on OEM design mufflers and pipes. My exact fit 1936 cost me $100 plus shipping.

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

John, thanks for those tips. Yes, I agree the front drums should be warmer than the rears if they are grabbing first. So with that said, I assume I should adjust them in such a way that the rears...

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

Jeff, I like these documents. Are they all in one book or are the several books. Can you send a pic of the cover so I can buy one? I see there are several different variations of service bulletin...

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

Good point I will try the socket in the spring car is put away for the winter.

But, can someone comment on my other questions on the left pull and how I adjusted the brakes? Thanks.

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

I like the idea of the 7/16 eight point but the wrench attached here seems like it would do the job well.

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

So a little more on the brake situation. I feel I can't get the adjustment on the wedge right until I get the proper adjusting tool. An open end wrench will only tighten them so much, then slips off...

Re: 36' wing windows? i didn't know. . .

I had to replace both of mine on the 36 because the rubber was bad and the metal was rusted, one glass fogged, I was surprised to find them first and almost was ready to pay the $250 for the set, no...

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

Got it all back together today and took it for a ride. Well it does not stop as good as my Jeep GC and I'm not going to leave any rubber on the road but it does stop better. When I got back I was...

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

No, the fronts look like new probably barely touched the drums and the rears were replaced not long ago. They look really good.

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

I didn't take off the pn 2053 wedge post so I'm going to assume it was on that up against the backing plate. Everything is all back together just waiting for some clevis pins for the brake rods to...

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

I did not see the 2054 washer you mentioned. Is that on the outside of the backing plate?

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

I really have not found any worn parts, everything looks good. I pulled the fronts all apart, cleaned everything and put it back together, no grease as IMO it just collects dirt and brake dust. Both...

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

So should I assume that both front brake shoes should expand on the bottom when I push the brake pedal and I should be able to see this with the drum off, just like the rears?

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

When you talk about pins and eyelets this probably will all make sense once I dig into this, but are you basically talking about all the rod end connections?
