1935/36 Pickup Top Windshield Brackets

I need the two brackets that connect the windshield frame to the hinges.

My research tells me that the car brackets are different from the pickup.

Thanks.

Re: Wide 5 Artillery Wheels

Tony, thanks. I did check Craigslist but must have used a slightly different search term. All I got in my search was rusty ones that looked questionable.

Wide 5 Artillery Wheels

Are there any manufacturer's that make these wheels? Looking for the 10-1/4 bolt spacing. If not, where is a good place to buy used? I need a pair.

Re: 1936 Pickup Bed Questions

Thanks. You mention tying in the bottom of the front panel with the wood and that would be fine I think, but the side panels are close to 6 feet long and there is nothing to fasten them to at the...

Looks super nice! Did you just fasten the boards on top of the metal floor?

Re: 1936 Pickup Bed Questions

So, no one answered my main question about whether I should replace the metal floor. I decided today that I should. I think it will help with the structural integrity of the box. The only other...

Re: 1936 Pickup Bed Questions

Thanks. I did talk with Bruce this morning before I posted. He didn't seem to think I needed to reinstall the metal floor.

The advantage is only personal. I like the looks of the wire wheels.

Re: Wide 5 Artillery Wheels

I guess my question now is am I limited to a '35 drum only if I want to change? And the next question would be availability.

Re: Wide 5 Artillery Wheels

I have a completely stock '36 setup. Manual drums brakes and no intention of going hydraulic. Are '35 drums my only option?

My project '36 pickup has the artillery wide 5 bolt pattern. I have some questions.

Wanted: 1935/1936 Pickup or Truck Cowl

Looking for the center upper cowl section or patch panel that would include the vent area for a '35 or '36 pickup or big truck. I believe they are the same.

Re: 1936 Generator Pulley Alignment

The guy I bought the generator from was super nice. It was me who asked for as much amperage as I could get. He told me that the later (slightly bigger) ones would work better for that. I thought...

Re: 1936 Generator Pulley Alignment

That is a great idea...thank you. I thought about a spacer, but didn't know how to keep the unit from rotating. Using those bolt holes will keep it in place. Now to find a longer stud.

Re: 1936 Generator Pulley Alignment

Ok but if the armature is shorter, wouldn’t the pulley be even further to the rear? Or is the mount further back on the old ones?

Thanks for the responses.

Re: Pic posting

Or you can just use the program 'Paint' if you have a windows computer. There's an option to resize your photo and then save.

Charlie, thanks for the input. I like the 1075 intake better due to the centered carbs, but since I have an earlier block with a different breather setup, I didn't think this was an option for me. ...

Yes to most of the above.
