Re: Restored 1936 Ford Truck

I agree that the headlight switch is 90 degrees off. If that is the only thing we can find, I would say it is one heck of a restoration. What is the nob next to the gas pedal? Maybe a power take...

Re: 36 ford seagrave fire truck

The stock setup for your truck is a combination oil pressure/fuel on one side and temperature/amp on the other. The oil pressure is electric, fuel is hydrostatic from a tube out of the tank with...

Re: 1936 Ford 1.5 ton V8 fuel gauge

The 36 truck used the 35 car fuel guage, which is hydrostatic. The pair you show is exactly the same as my 36 1.5 ton. I found a sender to go in the fuel tank and an oil pressure gauge on ebay. I...

Re: Hard starting when hot

I forgot to add that I did send the spare distributor mount coil to Skip Haney for rebuilding, so I can go back to the original style if I want to.

Re: Hard starting when hot

I moved one wire from one post to the other on the under dash resistor to bypass it and went for a test drive and got to full temperature. Upon return, I had no starting problems.

As an aside,...

Re: Hard starting when hot

I will try bypassing the external resistor. I went to the conversion coil because I exploded (literally) the one on the distributor when I left the ignition switch on, so I can't go back to that one....

To the right is a temp gauge and an amp gauge. To the left is an oil pressure gauge and a hydrostatic fuel gauge. There are two separate gauges under one bezel on each side. As Vanspeed says, you...

Re: New to Forum, starting new project

Welcome to the forum.

I retained the 6V (good wiring and cables), transmission (double clutching is fun), and mechanical brakes (there is no easy juice conversion). My use is very similar to what...

Re: What is this on bottom of steering?

Try to find an original spider for the end of the horn wire tube (shown in JSeery's first two photos). It is a very simple part, but the repro ones break easily. You'll have fun putting on the...

Re: 1936 Ford Truck Grill...Big truck vs half ton

Re: 36' ford truck windshield

Jeff is right about removing the upper dash panel that the shaft of the crank handle runs through. It will likely have some rust out requiring repair on the bottom side.
