Re: '36 spare tire cover seal won't fit

Re: '36 spare tire cover seal won't fit

Thanks, I'll order one on Monday, but with "Out-Of-Stock Bob" it might be tough getting one from him. I asked him something about windshield wipers once, and all he said was that he gets lots of his...

Re: '36 spare tire cover seal won't fit

The thin side is way too thin, it would take something twice as thick, and both sides are very solid rubber, I would need vice grips to crush the thick part enough to get it in.
Monday I will check...

Re: 1949 Ford State Police car

There are several police car museums around, you might contact one of them. The one in Phoenix seems to do some restoration and they might be able to help you.

Re: '36 5 window, Wiper ARM installation

A BIG Thanks!!! Karl. That was the answer. I had the Saddle under the rod with the hole in it, and not on top as you show in your diagram. I did have to grid the small rod from the wiper arm off just...

Re: 1936 vs 1937 Emergency Brake Lever

I converted my '36 to hydraulics last year. For the emergency brake cable, I used one of the original mechanical rods, straightened it out, shortened it, threaded it and ran it through the hole as...

Re: tire question

Now if they would just make 6.00x16 Three inch Double Whitewalls, it would be perfect.

Re: Firestone tires Too Big?

I had the same problem with the Coker 6.50x16 Wide Whitewall Radials, they were an inch too tall and would not clear the front fenders when turning.


If yours don't clear or you don't like them,...

Re: wet floor 30 A rumble seat area

This is for a '36, but I am sure you can come up with a similar idea, I wire brushed the rusty floor, then put on some heavy undercoating. Next I got a large sheet of aluminum and bent it to fit the...

Re: curve at bottom of '36 rear fender

Thanks Don, maybe it gets pushed out as it is tightened down. I'll have to try that before I put a bunch of bondo back in that area.

curve at bottom of '36 rear fender

Does anyone have a right rear fender off of their '36, I have a 5 window, that they could look at, and take a picture, to see if there is a curve at the bottom? I am sure I did not bend the fenders...

Re: Another turn signal question...need advice from electrical guru

Don't remember the part number, i think it is NOVITA EP35, but there is a flasher that is mechanical rather than load sensitive for the 12v system, they probably make one for the 6v system too.
