Some dash panel images, hope they are helpful.

Switches on a Senior 8 model, located on the left side of the dash panel, control the lights for the dash gauges and reading light above the gauges.

I think they just don't have the fittings installed in the picture.

Another design for an L6 replacement. Separates in the center, not on one end. Closer to the original.

Attached pictures show a replacement element for the Burr Ripley, NAPA 1522 and if you close you can see the joint in the center of the filter where the two pcs. fit together. Unscrew one pc. from the other to disassemble (right hand thread)and change the internal screw on filter.

The outer housing of the filter is made up of two pcs. that screw together, right hand thread. Once you unscrew the housing there is a standard modern style screw on filter inside, attached to the side with the in / out oil fittings. Standard NAPA available filter.

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.
