I'm restoring a 120C and have two exhaust manifolds. In both the heat valve is solidly stuck. (what is the proper name, riser, valve, thermostat?)Seems to me in one of the forums someone wrote just forget about it. Doesn't seem right to me. Any advise? looks like both are quite solid with rust. Thanks Bruce

I'm in the process of restoring a 37 conv. coup and need to remove the doors. The lower screws seem to be solidly rusted and despite using all the tricks I know---no luck. Like wise on the hinge pin. It will not budge. The running board is off so I can give a good rap to it. Any sage hints??? thanks Bruce

Gentlemen: Thanks so much for the advise photos and knowledge. Unfortunately I have already damaged the bezel for I could see the slots and knew this had something to do with it all. I have a 1099 which was my in-laws honeymoon car and another 1099 with lot of rust damage beyond repair. Between the two I can make one, for the honeymoon car has tons of missing parts. No doubt you will hear a lot from me in the future. Thanks again---- Bruce

I have a 37, 120, 1099, conv Cpe2-4 with a good body, and chassis but missing a whole lot of the rest. I need a parts car and wonder about model and year compatibility. Any info would be a help. Thanks Bruce

I have a family 120 I'm starting to restore. It needs a lot under the hood: engine, clutch, steering wheel etc. the body is in good shape. I was told it was a '37 but I have recently found the Calif. pink slip and the info states the serial no is 1099-1097; engine no. 105430; and the model is listed as a 120 B. There is nothing on the car to help. Could it be a 37 purchased in 36? The date of sale is listed as 10/15/36. Thanks Bruce Sorry it is a convertible and listed as a Con. Cpe2-4
