Re: 1936 lower radiator hoses installation

The straight hoses are correct for your installation. Doglegs are for later engines fitted into early cars.. First off, why is radiator lower? Can you shim it up? I could not get my 32 lower hoses...

Re: 32 Ford brake cross shaft assembly

BoxCar Tom, I was finally able to dig up the old info after a good day in the garage going thru zillions of pages of notes and finding nothing! We are going on memory here. So much for documentation....

Re: '41 won't crank when hot

Not to sound like a wiseguy, but please define "rebuilt starter". All too often they get opened up, checked for brush wear and put back together. Except for a loose/broken wire or terminal screw,...

Re: Marvel Classic Motor Oil

Pdstark asks a real question. A valve, either intake or exhaust, will open because the cam shaft is going to push it up with solid force. The valve has no choice in this part of the operation. ...

Re: 32 commercial rad cap hunt ?? 'Holy Grail'

I think the problem is (was) that they just looked like another ole timey radiator cap. Adding to the confusion is they sorta look like a model A part and therefore nearly worthless as model A parts...

Re: Rust Oleum spray cans

You should be choosing paint based on the type of paint. Krylon is usually a lacquer (acrylic) and Rusteoluem is an enamel. Way different materials. Of course Krylon is going to be less...

Re: Use of Slip plate to lube springs

So true. A leaf spring is really a constant strength (stress) plate of roughly diamond shape and cut into strips and stacked together to make practical sized assembly for use. It is nothing more than...

Re: Use of Slip plate to lube springs

In my simple mind and opinion, the closest current material to the original M 4682 is simply fifth wheel grease that is used on ,guess what, fifth wheels on semi swivel plates. This material is...

Re: Cooling system help needed

High flow pumps, no/low restriction in hoses and the "toilet is overflowing" . Report back on what Mr. radiator has to say. You are close to getting this sorted out.

Re: Cooling system help needed

Re: 32 Dash Knob replacement

I would suggest that before you start tearing into removing/destroying an original '32 dash knob that you carefully compare the "new" one to the original ones. They could not be farther off in looks,...

Re: Stiff steering
