Re: Floor mat and lining

Here's the scoop on '36 mats - as I understand it, and I could well be wrong.

The molds used to make the mats were at one supplier, over time they got worn and deteriorated. When you got a mat,...

Re: How Many Years Have You Owned Your Car Or Truck?

We've had our '36 Phaeton about 3 1/2 years.

There is a fellow in our vicinity whose mother bought him a '36 Phaeton while he was in high school. The family owned a gas station and car repair...

Re: Leaky steering box

Charlie NY (Charlie Schwendler) did an excellent job of rebuilding a 37 box for us.

He always goes the extra mile. Highly recommended.

Re: 1936 Horn problem

You are correct. The horns sound because the wire feeding them has been grounded.

An auxiliary switch would be open until grounded when the button is pressed. Originally I don't think there was...

Re: Jump Starting?


Just a suggestion: if you have not worked on 6v, the ground side of the system is much more critical with 6v than 12v. In particular, look carefully at the point where the positive...

Re: Yet another horn rod question

Dunno if it qualifies as a trick, but we used two needlenose pliers.

Re: Not so Super Bright LEDS

Re: Yet another horn rod question

We swapped out the '36 Column for a '37.

Fitting the horn rod took about two hours! It had a slight bend, and some crud and hardened grease. We cleaned everything up really well. We also took...

Re: Bumper jack handle


That style jack handle has probably been a murder weapon more than any other part on the FH Ford.<grin>

Re: Vacuum testing questions, stock 21 stud

The reason for the test was to use the vacuum gauge to set the initial timing at idle.

We understand the way to do this is hook up the gauge and move the set screw on the side of the distributor...

Re: 1936 Ford Cabriolet T-Shirt P-38

Nice design but "Django Studios" overwhelms the rest - I would buy one if the commercial part of the design was not so prominent.
