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

Okay, I'm game. What does that fraction represent. Never did that well in physics. Terry

Re: Autolite Spark Users Only

Seems like I read somewhere that the Stromberg 48 was used in the early 36 Fords, as well. 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

Re: Drivers Side Front Door Latch

Re: Drivers Side Front Door Latch

The same is true with my 36 Fordor sedan. This was a safety feature that made the driver get out on the curbside instead of opening the door into oncoming traffic, if you wanted to lock your car. The...

Re: '35 Coupe Windshield Drain Questions

Mine is a 36 sedan. As I recall, the nipples were welded to the underside and offered enough room for the hose to be pushed over them. Is your fabric kickpanel removed? The hose goes behind it and...

Re: Electronic Voltage Regulator

TFB, I reread your 2nd post and no, the 6v generator was not converted. A 6v generator can put out 12v but you have to be careful. They tell you in the Fun Project VR for 12 volts that you must limit...

Re: Electronic Voltage Regulator

The Fun Project voltage reg was intended for the early 3 brush generators that were made up till 1939. They were much better than the original cutouts. They could be bought for converting these 6v...

Re: PennGrade Motor Oil

I can attest to what rodrelic said about the NY/PA crude oil. That parrifin could really clog up valves if we didn't put kerosene or other stuff down the back side(casing) of the well. You could make...

Re: 36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Have you tried it without thermostats? I don't think the 36's came from the factories with them installed. I don't use them and have skip's pressure valve with an original radiator cap. I don't have...

Re: Rear seat small vent windows

Forgot to mention that there is a tapered lock pin that holds the levers on. Could taking the pin out of the one pointing up when locked and rotating it 180 degrees be the answer?

Re: Rear seat small vent windows

On mine, both levers are pointed down when the windows are locked. Both levers need to be pushed up to open the window. Terry
