Re: Does anybody restore temperature gauges?

I talked to the guy in Vermont who advertises in Hemmings. He specializes in temp. gauges. I plan on sending my unit to him. Thanks to everybody on the Barn who responded. Jim in San Jose

Does anybody restore temperature gauges?

I have a very nice looking temperature gauge for my 1935 Phaeton but it appears to be totally empty. No red fluid shows at all even in boiling water. Does anybody repair these units? Jim in San Jose.

Re: Looking for a Top Kit for my 1936 Phaeton

Question for Bursonaw: Exactly what Haartz top material are you ordering? I too am doing a 1935 Phaeton. How do you think it compares to the original material Ford used. I would appreciate any...

How do I test my oil pressure sender?

I am not seeing any oil pressure on the gauge on my 35 Phaeton. I don't think the oil pressure is zero. I assume the sender is a variable resistor and the gauge is an ammeter. I have a multimeter to...

Re: Antifreeze leak

I have found that antifreeze finds tiny cracks that plain water does not.

How to fix a dig in a running board

I just backed my '35 Phaeton into my trailer and took a dig out of my new Drake running board. Any suggestions on how to patch it up? The dig is about 3" long and 1 1/2" wide. Mostly not all the way...

Re: Arcing New Brake Linings

Here is a poor man's solution for arcing the shoes if you need to increase the radius as the drums wear. They do need to be off of the car. Use a very heavy ball peen hammer and an anvil. Strike the...

There is the 1953 film "Jeopardy" with Barbara Stanwick. Lots of scenes with a 1949 Ford Convertible. You can watch a steamy preview on You Tube. Jim in San Jose

Re: Nothing better to do but work.

A comment to nelsb01. I just finished assembling a 1935. For whatever it is worth, I bolted the battery ground strap to the motor mount near the brake return spring. The starter worked a lot better...

Re: 1936 alum. heads

The owner of Kearney Foundry told me their patterns for the Aluminum heads were sold to H&H in the LA area. I don't know if they are making them or not. Jim in San Jose

Re: Brake Adjusters

I have floaters from "Flathead Ted" in Australia in my '32 5 Window and my '35 Phaeton. I am very pleased with them. I don't know why Henry didn't do it this way in the first place. Jim in San Jose.

Re: Flathead "spark knock" ???????

I know this is just terminology but I have always called the noise loose connecting rods make "knock", and this noise being talked about here "ping". I am I alone in this view?
