Re: 1936 pickup rewire with new dash and lighting harnesses

Just follow the wiring diagrams and you'll be okay. No need to try and check each wire as you go along. Insanity.

Re: Signal-stat 900 turn signal on positive ground

Re: Bench test Vacuum on fuel pump

I don't know that you can get any readable vacuum on the gauge that way. JMHO.

Re: The Good, the bad, but no ugly

Good question. and why would you "bench test" a fuel pump? Just disconnect the outlet line and turn the engine over a few times and see if gas spirts out.

Re: Soooo close

How do you get in and out of the car? Align it up as close as you can and push it in and pull it out with a rope????

Re: 1940 Ford truck Paint type

Single-step acrylic gets my vote hands down. I just don't like base coat clear coat. I've seen too many cars where the clear coat is coming off. "Peeling" off I call it. Besides, why paint it twice?...

35-36 Radio Face plate glass lens

I just ran across a nice curved glass lens for a 1935-1936 Ford radio head in my stash of early Ford goodies. Just the lense, nothing else. I really have no idea of what it is worth, but where 'ya...

Re: 39 Mercury running board Rubbers

There was a guy, Hunley Acuff in Rossville Georgia who vulcanized the correct covers on your boards years ago. I don't know if he is still around or not. Try Googleing him. It's worth a shot.

Re: 36 pickup rear view mirror location

35-36 Ford pickups did not come with an inside mirror, only one outside mirror mounted on the driver's side. That's probably why the guy filled and sanded the holes where a PO had mounted one because...

Re: Cartouche cardboard headliner for 36 pickup

I'd be MIGHTY skeptical about dampening the cardboard unless you can support the whole enchilada evenly. You may wind up with a wavy/bumpy mess.

Re: spacer for a 39 flathead fan

While we are on the subject of fans/hubs etc, let me ask a dumb question. Will the standard generator mount fan work on the later crank mount, i.e are the fans interchangeable? I have several fans...

Re: required post

If it is a for sale post nobody can reply, you have to send a PM, which IMHO is BS.
