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: 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...

Looks as if it might be easier and safer to just keep the car.
All kidding aside, a bank to bank transfer would be best for everyone.

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?

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

Thanks 51,but I tried that and no luck.I think sedan delivery stands are unlike coupes,cabriolets etc.

Re: Is this an ok radiator?
