Re: Changing Standard Steering Wheel to a Banjo on a 1936

If you have the correct '36 banjo steering wheel, it's directly interchangeable.

Notice the "strings" on the '36 banjo wheel are sorta flat, not angled or splayed like the '37-'39 banjo wheels,...

Re: The Early Ford V8 Club of America - Application Form.

Frank, that was a great and memorable trip! The Early Ford V-8 Club's cross-country tour in 2013 was also a fantastic time, which I considered to be the trip of a life time for me. Great memories!!

Re: 81A-7222 shifter housing detent balls and springs

Check with Michael Driskell @ Third Gen Automotive in McMinnville Tennessee. He will know what you need, and most likely has those items in stock.

Re: lost my best friend today

Stan, I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. I can't imagine how I would handle loosing my wife of 53 years, or any of my immediate family for that matter.
I'd suggest keeping yourself active on your...

Re: 37 column drop

The internal pins/springs could be stuck and not allowing key cut to code to work properly. My '35 door lock cylinder had that problem. I sprayed a cleaning fluid into the key hole, and worked a...

Re: Does the oil pump bolt have to be safety wired?

Most of the broken, non functional lock washers I mention in post #10 were on original cars being dismantled for the first time. Probably the only thing that kept that hardware together was rusty...

Re: Does the oil pump bolt have to be safety wired?

Good advice in general Ronnie, and especially good advice for anyone attempting a record run at Bonneville @ 200+ mph. What was your approximate engine rpm @ 205.744 mph?

Re: Does the oil pump bolt have to be safety wired?

Great idea!! I can't tell you how many broken/non functional lock washers I've found while working on these old Fords in the last 63 years.

Re: 1948 pilot

Re: Does the oil pump bolt have to be safety wired?

Why take the chance that if that bolt comes loose, and falls into the oil pan, it has the potential to tear up something in that lower end that can/will ruin the engine.

Re: Help With Part I.D.

It's definitely not an original Ford part made for a '36 Ford, but looks very similar to an adapter I've seen before for hooking up an emergency brake cable, or rod to an original '35/'36 emergency...

Re: Busted Axle

This is another good point on getting those axle nuts properly torqued. I've experienced the need to re torque axle nuts several times to finally get them set to the correct torque.

Re: 1936 cabriolet ground strap location
