Re: 1936 pickup changing motor to a mercury motor

Rotor, with respect, those adapters are for fitting later engine into 33-34 chassis. From 35 onward, the width of the mounts is the same throughout.

Westie, ANY flathead you build/buy/ fit into your truck will cost $$$$. There's an old saying that with flatheads you'll never spend so much money to go so slow! Sure, you can fit a much larger...

Just make sure you don't bend them in,or out. It will screw up the Ackerman angle.


This all depends on the wheel base of the vehicle; quite conceivably you may have to bend in or out as well as...

Re: ground strap for car.

I run one of those rubber ones on my 35. I have a daughter who, every time she alighted the car, would get a shock.

Re: Problem with front axle made of a mixture of parts.

When you heat and bend, do so whilst maintaining correct Ackerman geometry.

Re: 1936 pickup changing motor to a mercury motor

The late to early motor adapters would have to be used to fit the engine mounts


Actually...no adapters required, just run the truck pumps. This pertains to 8BA series

Re: Standard or Deluxe Model?

Actually, 35 Deluxe models did not have the extra scalloped trim pieces as in photo #2, only 36 Deluxes.
See post #14.
At least this is true of Canadian produced export models.
