1933-1934 transmission crossmember

Re: fender repair panels '36 ford

I ordered one from Sacramento Vintage about a year ago. You might try a search on e-bay or Amazon. I believe they're also called "Repair panels".

Re: '36 5W quarter window water seal

I used 3M glass bedding compound. It comes in a caulking tube, looks like tar and will not dry completely. Kind of messy but it works.

Re: Flathead front end noise

I haven't been around any 59a's. But if they're anything like my 21 studder and have a vacuum brake in the distributor, you might try disconnecting and plugging the vac hose and see if the noise goes...

Re: piston stop bolt confusion

I think what you're referring to is compression or exhaust stroke.If you're on the power stroke,both valves will be closed.If you're on the exhaust stroke,the exhaust valve will be open. Pull all of...

Re: 1936 Sedan brakes conversion

It might be worth looking into Flathead Ted's Brake Floaters. Very reasonable.

Re: 8BA potential leak- Bubble test

My '36 did the same thing a while back. I was using a 50/50 mix ( I don't remember the brand) and it would foam. I drained out some coolant, added water to about 75/25 and the foaming stopped.You...

Re: Selling a vehicle and money questions...

Re: How do estimate the price a rare ( I think) part?

Thanks for the input guys. I did a little research and found that the tail light stands for a delivery mount to the body and not the fender. Odd huh?
