I've used this inexpensive leak detector to check for combustion gases in coolant. Easy to use.

Head gasket, or crack(s) in the head / block can be a source for leakage.

Also saw a problem where a loose water pump packing nut was allowing air into the impeller area at higher speeds, causing aeration and foaming / loss of coolant.

Re: 1936 STD 8, Coil Question

Crin,

The wiring picture from Pertronix should show the wire from the ignitor (electronic switch) going to the bottom of the coil, based on the coil in your car. The other wire from the ignitor will go to the ignition switch.

This way your ignition switch still controls the supply of power to your coil in the correct polarity.

Power has to go thru the ignitor before it gets to the coil, since the ignitor is the electronic replacement for your original points.

If you were to connect both wires from the ignitor to the same bottom terminal on the coil, power would always be on to the coil, as long as the ignition switch was on. The coil would not fire in sequence based on the distributor cam lobes and the engine would not run.

Hope this helps,

Dave

Marty,

Never had them off so I can't tell you. I tried pulling up on them to see if they would lift out but no luck.

Kelch heater, or similar to one?

Looks like there is a electrically driven blower motor on the can surrounding the exhaust manifold.

Plain weave with diagonals, based on metal cloth weave patterns?

This supplier has a weave that looks close.

I've heard of it refereed to as a basket weave.

Caning for chair seats have a similar pattern, with a few extra rows.

32 901 Front Seat Attachment
#59

This is in response to a PM message requesting pictures showing front seat attachment details.

The wood seat frame has two holes that line up with two tapered pins on the seat frame. These two pins locate the seat frame and lock it in place. The spring shown inside the seat frame provides tension to the seat adjustment mechanism. The mechanism provides front-back adjustment of the seat.

The edge of the adjustment lever can bee seen in the _d picture.

Pictures shown are of an original interior.

Re: Light Switch on '32 901

Marty,

Ran thru this on my 901.

Battery connected, no switches turned on.

1) Horn is powered, and the interior dome light can be turned on using the switch on the passengers door pillar. Dash light can be turned on using upper pull out switch on the left side of the dash. Brake lights are powered when pedal is depressed. Ignition circuit is powered only when ignition switch is turned on.

2) Steering wheel light switch knob (left one). One CW click turns on on the fender lights and both rear brake running lights. Second CW click turns the headlights on low beam, Third click turns the headlights on high. Fender lights and both rear brake running lights are on when low and high beam headlights are on.

The lower pull out switch on the left side of the dash turns on the instrument lights when pulled out, but only when the running or headlights are on.

3) The interior dome light turns on when a rear door is opened, only when the running or headlights are on.

Hope this helps,

Dave
