Re: Rear shocks on a 1936 fordor

Could try to fill the shock to see if they develop some resistance. There is a rebuilding service but if they are seized or if the shaft wobbles with no resistance they may not be rebuildable.

Re: Ignition switch woes

The ignition switch needs replacement and i believe your not reading the Ohms correctly should be on the K (Thousand) ohm scale for the secondary.

Re: Cracked steering column sleeve

You may want to check out a Chassis parts book for the part your seeing as cracked. There is an upper bushing under the steering wheel, many replace with a bearing.

Re: Stromberg 67 over small 97

Re: 35 roadster radio

The V8 Club 35-36 Ford Book on page 129 illustrates the 35 spare wheel antenna. Great book available on their web site.

Re: 35 Ford Exterior Door Handle

The 38 hardware book indicates the front can be used on the rear if the rear handle was not available. It appears to be a simple drill and tap for the 10-32 screw, if necessary.

Re: ford aluminum heads

If the heads you have now have a part number embossed what is it? This could give you a good idea if they are for flat top pistons. Otherwise the best way to tell is to remove a head.

Re: ford aluminum heads

Since your car does not have the original heads, you have to make sure the pistons are flat top otherwise the original 35 style heads will not work.

Re: 33 Tranny to Driveshaft Oil Leak

The bearing can be replaced with a bearing that has a seal on one side, the output side. You may have too much oil in the case.

Are you trying to start with the clutch depressed? Or is the transmission in neutral? What is the condition of the battery?

Re: 1941 convertible backfire to carb, with video

Fuel pressure is too high 2 to 2-1/2. The high pressure will cause engine to flood with fuel, since the carburetor fuel shut off valve was not designed for the pressure you have.
