How to remove knurled plug on pressure end of Master cylinder
#1

I want to rebuild the master cylinder on my 1936 120 without damaging the knurled edge of the plug. Years ago, I would simply use a pipe wrench when rebuilding
a master cylinder in an old car but now I want to avoid damaging the knurling. Was there a special wrench made for this and if so, where would I find one? Could
I wrap the part in copper sheet to avoid damage? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I think that you are on the right track but the closed end goes toward the windshield. Good luck

1936 120 open cars did not have vent windows. That changed for the 1937 Juniors.

The double nuts suggest a non-factory installation.

The lower front and all rear hinge pins are part number 304147 and were used on the Junior Packards from 1935-1939. If you have to make them, they are 7/32" (.3437") in diameter and approximately 2 25/32" long. The parts book says that oversize pins were available in .005 and 1/32" sizes. Oil groove pins were also listed.

Actually, the tube and line are filled with ether. Mercury boils at around 670 degrees F. I carefully removed a temp gauge line from a 1937 Chevy decades ago. Once out, I attempted to straighten the line and ended up cracking it. The smell of ether is strong!

Yes, that is the switch. It mounts under the dash with the handle in a slot so that the handle can slide left or right from center.

Yes, the cooling system requires restrictions in flow. I remember hearing that some folks place large washers into the cooling systems of Ford flatheads. These washers restrict the flow and the engines run cooler as a result. This point was proven to me by an operator at a heating/cooling plant. The centrifugal chiller at the plant transferred its heat to the cooling towers. The valve to the cooling towers was never left wide open. The operator showed me that if he opened the valve too wide, the chiller would actually LOSE efficiency. A couple of minutes after opening the valve slightly wider, the chilled water temperature would inch up. Obviously, the valve setting was predicated on the outside temperature and how much demand there was for chilled water. But, by slowing down the flow through the unit, more heat was able to be transferred. If the water ran through the cooling tubes too quickly, less heat was transferred.
