Re: Removing upper steering shaft grommet

It shouldn't be much of a problem with an open car. It's a bear on a closed cab pickup, however.

Re: 37 & up car steering gear pittman arm nut size?

Use a "suggestable" wrench. I have a large crescent wrench that comes in handy a lot of times.

Re: Accelerator foot rest

Get one of the repo footrests as used on 34 Forda and 35 pickups. Just a small "frog stool"* kind of thing that is adjustable. Works great.

Re: Trick to remove OFF ON ignition plate

I used a dremmel tool with a cut off disc to cut a screw driver slot in the head of the pin and "unscrewed" the pin. Worked like a charm. (I couldn't do that now as my hands are too shaky.)

Re: 1936 Ford V8 Service/Restoration Thread

Nice looking 36. I see nothing wrong with the car other than the accessory grill guard. That is not a Ford authorized accessory, but I sort of like them myself. Welcome to the barn.
