Re: The Highwaymen Movie

Great movie! Just something I noticed was that most of the cars used were deluxe models. I know it’s probably nit-picky, but I would think there were probably more standard cars around than deluxe in...

Re: 1936 Ford Hood Ornament Fitment

I believe the ornament that came in a box of parts with my car was also a Vintique brand and I had the same issues Gary describes.

Re: Rear mounts

Trying to eliminate some vibration from the car. Seems like some of the vibration is coming from the trans area and the rubber on stock rear mount is split and falling apart. I just thought if was...

Re: Rear mounts

Re: Rear mounts

I know this is an older thread, but is it possible to do this upgrade on a completed car? The rear mount on my 36 needs to be replaced. Thanks

Re: Intake Manifold differences

Ah, ok.. It seems as though a lot of heads were replaced after 10 years or so of service. At least I see a lot of date codes on 21 stud heads from 1946 or 47 as well.

Re: Intake Manifold differences

Thanks, I just meant could 36 have come with either a cast iron or aluminum intake manifold. Or did 36 only come from the factory with an aluminum manifold?

Re: Intake Manifold differences

Does this apply to 1936 as well? My car currently has a cast iron manifold.

Ha! You would be correct.. My past small block Chevy way of thinking is apparent with that statement.

Re: Head Gasket repair 1936 21 stud

Yes, will definitely check piston to valve clearance. I’ve been reading about guys using small balls of tinfoil to measure this.
