Re: 1936 Ford Pickup windshield garnish mouldings

Found the headliner retaining strips. The strips above the door were used from 1935 through 1948 pickups. I found mine on a 1948 Ford truck. Even the drilled holes matched up.

Re: 1936 Ford Pick Up Glove Box Lining?

Re: Knocking at start up?

I had an engine like that also that had the piston slap when it was first started cold. It had been re-ringed when it first should have been re-bored.
