Re: windshield crank mechanism ID

The 37 has two attachments to the windshield rather than a single attachment.

Re: hi-ber-nate....

Aren't you supposed to plant those in the Fall? Now you have to wait until the ground thaws to plant them. Better get the greens some more light with a grow light, they look a little pale. ...

Re: New upholstery

I love the color of the interior. Your interior has me rethinking my post LB interior decision.

Re: Speaking of engines

It looks like the last guy that worked in that engine left his tool for pulling the valve guide retaining clips in there.

Re: Older style synchro

To reassemble the synchro, I used popsicle sticks and a hose clamp to depress the balls and springs.

Re: 39 pedals in a 36 frame

I bought a copy of the Ford drawings for the toe boards for my 1937 from the Benson Ford Research Center and made my own boards. The drawings were about as expensive as a set of boards from Dennis...

Re: remove windshield 1936 Cabriolet

Check up under the dash to see if your car has a drain tube in the lower corners of the windshield, I think my 1937 coupe has them. If so there should be a rubber hose that attaches to them and is...

Re: '40 tudor standard front seat

Welcome aboard. I would check with a local auto upholstery shop, if you have one, to see if they could whip up a cover for your seat for a reasonable amount.

Re: short U-bolts

Clem, as Kube pointed out above, you have to tell us how many leaves are in the new spring you installed and whether the spring includes plastic liners. There is a chart in the "Green Bible" on page...

Re: 3 wire speaker, 3rd wire?

MAG, thanks for this link. I was able to find the schematics and adjustment information for my Philco F-1440 radio for a 1937 model. Lots of information on old radios there.

Re: Weight of '40 Coupe Body?

I didn't think the reproduction steel was as thick as an original and the reproductions don't have any sound deadener on them.

I would go with Mac's number.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Those old pedals had some real patina. It is probably safer to drive with the new pedals.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Happy Birthday Chris, I hope that downhill slope you speak of is slow and gradual. I think with all your interests you won't have time to slow down.

Best wishes,

Re: Dead/ shorted battery cell

6.3v is a pretty good reading for a 6 volt battery. If the solenoid is chattering when you try to start it, it may indicate a dirty connection, not getting full battery voltage to the starter.
