Re: 1936 lower radiator hoses installation

ID'ing the inlets as 35/36... Wouldn't '36 carry a 68 part number prefix with '35's having a 48? You can see the part number location in the first and fourth pics.

As for pressure blowing a hose...

Re: 1936 Ford rearend gear ratio and speed

My very stock '36 Phaeton, when we got it around 2009 with the 4.11 gearset was "done for" at about 55mph, like you are reporting. I'm pretty sure it would have handled more, I wasn't going there.

Re: Marvel Mystery Oil and Marvel Classic Motor Oil

Put me down for another one who uses it in the fuel tank. But I honestly believe it's snake oil and I feel like a rube for doing it.

Re: 36 Hot Air Heater Exchanger Leaking Exhaust

I'd call him. It would be impossible to list everything he has in his stash on the website, and you'll get great advice.

Re: 1938 Firestone whitewall tire pressure

Hi Everyone. Jacques1960, you didn't ask for this kind of advice, but I'd put tires way up high on your 'to-get' list if you're thinking of driving any distance at all.

Re: 1934 Roadster For The Early Ford V-8 Foundation Museum

Bill & Jo Ann Fox are great V-8ers! And truly vintage is right about that car, it's a museum worthy one!

Re: Temperature gauge assembly

Hi, I have '35 and '36 cars, but my hint is if the dash is in the car, remove the speedometer to improve access to the gauges mounted beside it.

Re: 1936 Overheating Problem

Hi Everyone. Jon, I like the suggestion of just driving the car a while. Keep some coolant of your choice with you and check it and top off each time you stop for a few months of driving. You'll...

They'll want painting, but then straight on the car, or truck, in this case.

Re: Water pump repair

Many V-8'ers have Mr. Haney's handiwork on their cars, many. He might be the only guy doing coils to keep our cars running tip top. And he's a distributor guy. Oh yes, the 3# radiator check valve...

Re: OHV conversion

Hey old Tom and Pete, thanks fellas for bringing this to my attention. A good read, and BONUS, the largest batch of "flathead" pornography I've seen this summer.

Thumbs up Re: for those with sharp eyes ID these vehicles.

Good thread, I'll play.

I'm not the first to identify Pic #3 is a 1935.

It's a convertible. Do I see a rumble seat or a laid-in-place trunk lid, but in any case a Cabriolet or Roadster, not a...

Re: 1936 Ford Roadster - Grant Fleming, Canada

Some of us love our cars, like Grant does.

This owner didn't really love his car. I think he hated it and was way beyond ready to get an award to advertise his car's quality and get it sent down...

Re: 1936 Ford Roadster - Grant Fleming, Canada

Difficult choice, but the backseat in this model offers significant advantages. Wet and cold weather can be a challenge, but that's why you bring someone to snuggle with!
