Re: 1936 Overheating Problem

http://attachment.php
I would check timing using vacuum gauge.
Adjust distributor to optimize vacuum reading.
(I think the attachment is for gauge readings, if not search on Ford Barn)

Re: Ď36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Not for me. I advance or retard distributor.
I actually have no brake on at all. Again, I do this as a result of previous postings.

Re: Ď36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

I use a vacuum gauge with car idling. I adjust distributor to get highest reading then drop back slightly. Use search as this topic has been discussed frequently and vacuum readings are well covered.

Re: Ď36 LB. temp ranges, thermostats?

Had a similar experience myself. Turned out that the timing was retarded.

Re: Spark Advance versus Overheat

I am a believer in the vacuum gauge.
I donít have any experience with Pertronix so I am not sure if this negates gauge use.
What reading do you get ?

Re: Rear Axle Housing Bearing

When I replaced bearings in my 34 I purchased through Joblot Automotive (no longer in business). They supplied Timken bearings and they match up with what you have posted.

As a matter of curiosity, my keyed door lock is on the passenger side. Is this correct?
What is the reasoning for this?

[/B ]I will replace condenser. Do you have NAPA number for 1936 (40B) condenser?
I will have to borrow a compression gauge so it might be a few days before I report back.

Likely culprit - 4625 Bearing- driving pinion- pilot type.
Introduced by Ford in late 1933. This is why you can still drive. If not replaced you will cause wear on ring and pinion and probably...
