Re: 1936 Overheating Problem

Hi Everyone. Jon, I like the suggestion of just driving the car a while. Keep some coolant of your choice with you and check it and top off each time you stop for a few months of driving. You'll...

Re: Water pump repair

I haven't needed one, but I think Skip makes a torque tube bearing?

They'll want painting, but then straight on the car, or truck, in this case.

Re: Water pump repair

Many V-8'ers have Mr. Haney's handiwork on their cars, many. He might be the only guy doing coils to keep our cars running tip top. And he's a distributor guy. Oh yes, the 3# radiator check valve...

Thumbs up Re: for those with sharp eyes ID these vehicles.

Re: 1936 Ford Roadster - Grant Fleming, Canada

Some of us love our cars, like Grant does.

This owner didn't really love his car. I think he hated it and was way beyond ready to get an award to advertise his car's quality and get it sent down...

Re: 1936 Ford Roadster - Grant Fleming, Canada

Difficult choice, but the backseat in this model offers significant advantages. Wet and cold weather can be a challenge, but that's why you bring someone to snuggle with!

Re: Elgin road race

Re: Pat McFarlane RIP

Pat/Ohio, did you have some history with his Model B?

It looks like his road-buddy Mark might be assisting in sending it down the road. He's a good-un' too!
