Re: 1934 sedan. Pulling out the gas tank

On some tanks the diameter of the original hole will not allow some modern senders to drop into the tank.

Re: 1934 three window coupe

In today's market $57,100 was a good price and they should have taken it. If they run it again it will be less the next time.

Re: 1934 sedan. Pulling out the gas tank

If you are pulling out the original tank to clean it and install a non original fuel sender why not buy a new tank that would be set up for the later sender? I seriously doubt that a modern sender...

Re: 1932 ford pickup GVWR.

See BobC's post. No need for GVW when 36 and older. Your DMV person should know that as in the vehicle code. Although I should not make assumptions on what Cal DMV knows or should know.

Re: The new 1940 Ford Book is now available

Just got mine today and have briefly skimmed through it. Lots of great information for '40 lovers. Kube did a great job.

Re: which comes first...the windshield or the rubber seal

I think if you had titled your post with the words "1932 Cabriolet windshield seal" he probably would have noticed it right away.

Re: which comes first...the windshield or the rubber seal

The cabriolet takes a special seal and as I recall it installs in four pieces. I would put the frame in the car and have it loose and then tuck the seal between the frame and the body. As I recall...

Re: Grand Cherokee rear to 1935

With the leaf springs you may have to move the axle pads. With coil overs I have found that they are difficult to find the correct spring rates to make the car ride correctly whether it is loaded...

Re: Speedometer for 36 to S 10 tail shaft transmission?

Re: Grand Cherokee rear to 1935

Use a parallel leaf spring kit from Chassis Engineering, TCI, or Speedway. I would not use anything with coil over shocks. The leaf spring kits are a "bolt-in"
kit and easy to install.

You can get a roll of black closed cell foam seal at your local hardware store to seal the top if you think you need it.

The window channel kits are supplied by Vintique to most if not all V-8 retailers. I get the rubber seals from Drake if they are in stock.
