1937 120 Exhaust Replacement (Cut Pipes or Full Length?)
Home away from home
Home away from home

37Blanche
I am going to replace the exhaust system on my 1937 120. When ordering, there are options to have pipes cut or full length. Shipping is the cost difference, but they (Waldron) told me I would need to weld the front exhaust, but not the tail pipe.

Question: Welding aside, is there benefit to having them in pieces for installation vs. full pipes? Or is install the same? The exhaust system looks to navigate the frame and I am just not sure if a full pipe(s)would make that a challenge?

Thoughts appreciated!
Ben

Looking for a spare tire cover for the Passenger side, although I am not sure that matters, on my 1937 120 Convertible Sedan.

Flackmaster, We met in Hershey, and your friend Bob W. said he had one that he was willing to part with?

Thanks. So if I understand correctly. You can over tighten. And if you do it could stop the flow of coolant and dry out the pump? I have tightened a bit. Less than a quarter turn. I will drive it again tomorrow and monitor the leak and tighten a bit more taking caution. Thanks for the guidance.

Have new water pump on, but it leaks from the packing nut. How tight can I make this to stop the leak? it is not a small drip. A good puddle on the catch pan,
I am afraid of "over tightening".

Thanks. Yes Ride is smooth. We were replacing the front suspension (Bushings, King Pins etc) and were wondering if we should do something there or not. Thanks for the update!

Couple questions on shock Absorbers
What oil do you put in the shocks?
How much do you put in?
How often should they be checked?
Thanks !
