Installing Dash Board in '32 3w Coupe

What is a good way to hold the threaded offset receivers in place when doing install of front belt rail or dash board? I assume they might need some slight movement for screw alignment.

Re: 32 hand throttle rod??

A length of 8 7/8" seems to work ok. Don't know if this length is available but a longer rod can be shortened and welded. With some careful filing no one will know.

Re: 32 v8 radiator install small problem

Thank you Bruce for the offer. But I restored/repaired two other crank bearings today so have the part needed. The one that I repaired had been trimmed of the upper part but is now complete again.

Re: 32 v8 radiator install small problem
