Lowering 32 roadster top

Was there a separate manual included with 1932 roadsters on how to lower and fold roadster tops ? I find it difficult to get it tight enough to install the boot.

Re: 34 radiator cap

Does that mean that you think it is a repo ? or were there a lot of
original manufacturers ?

Thanks, but I have a 36 manifold which, as mentioned, has the mounting surface 1" lower than the 34. The 36 manifold has the same generator height mounting as the 34, by the way.

Re: wheel lug nuts 7/8 inch across flats

Did the jag have metric lug nuts ?

22 mm would be about the same. Maybe these lug nuts
