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.
