Re: 1936 speedo to 5 speed tranny

Does your tranny have mechanical speedo drive or electric. In my '36, it was just getting the right length speedo cable, no mods necessary with mechanical drive.

Re: Lug nuts stuck......

When I was a wee lad and my dad was hauling milk cans with his 1957 F600 with Budd wheels, he used the wheel wrench with a six foot pipe and stood on it to get the lugs loose. The rear duals had a...

Re: Bolt remover socket

Take a cold chisel and hammer and split the nut, either from top or side. Works every time.

Re: Block cleaning and magnaflux

I had my '36 Lb machined at Auto Value in Little Falls. The guy that did it has passed away, but it's possible he trained one of the other guys in the shop. When I was there they had multiple...

Re: Stubborn Starter Drive

This won't help with the removal, but double check the bendix when you do it get it out--it probably isn't toast. A while back the bendix crapped on my neighbors '56 Lincoln (same bendix setup). He...

Re: Shoebox door gap

Probably factory "correct". We have a '55 Tbird that I redid frame off. The doors fit terrible, but after going to many car shows and talking with people that are familiar with the Baby Birds, the...

Re: 1936 lower radiator hoses installation

I have two '36's. It is very difficult to get the hoses on and off as the distance between the radiator outlet and the block outlet is very short. I have to push one end on as far as it will go...

Re: Drug another home but with a torque converter

We have a '55 Tbird with that type of converter and my neighbor has a '56 Lincoln as well. Don't know if the two are the same, but they are both that air cooled version.

Re: 1935-36 car windshield frame

To clarify: all the rust through mentioned is in the side channel that the drain hole is in, NOT the faces. All faces are smooth except as noted--two screw holes in one and a small dent in...

Re: 36 Can't Stop The Oil Pan Drain Plug Drip

The problem with using anything on the outside is the oil that is still in the leak--you can't get the outside area oil free so nothing will stick. It would take years of sitting with an empty oil...

Re: 36 Can't Stop The Oil Pan Drain Plug Drip

My 36 marks it's territory under the drain plug as well. In my case it isn't the plug--the bung itself leaks from the seam where it is attached to the oil pan. It is on my project list to take the...

Re: Rust Oleum spray cans

I have found that they need to be shaken a LONG time, with theory being they have sat for a long time on a store shelf and all the pigment settles to the bottom, just like in a gallon can of paint. ...

Re: 1936 Ford Roadster - Grant Fleming, Canada

I notice the headlights appear to be sealed beam, rather than the "bug eye" standard. Has he converted it to 12 volt or are the sealed beam 6 volt? Just curious. Almost as pretty as my blue 5...

Re: LB block repairable (or can it be)?????

That would be kind of cool if it ended up in Sweden, where my great grandpa emigrated from in 1887!

Re: LB block repairable (or can it be)?????

I know it would take a lot of money to repair--question is, does the fact it's an LB block justify it?????
