    Ford Cunningham Limousine 1935

    Price depends on condition. Show us some pictures or tell us more. Does the motor turn over?

    Exhaust smoke and oil consumption

    Arrr. Yes, that is enough! So since you bought it, the consumption has not decreased? Have a look at @hchris's suggestion to check for blow-by. If there is blow-by with that much oil consumption, you should see a bit of smoke and under the car would be a mess behind the bottom of the breather tube.

    Exhaust smoke and oil consumption

    You will order rings after taking off the head and measuring the bore. Give it a bit longer. Go for a couple of 100 mile drives, with lots of hills along the way.

    What is the case number? The photo is not good enough to be sure. It looks like T85E-1? If so, that is not in The Hollander 1952. T85 was used mid-late '30s. Here is an article on the T85 in the '50s and '60s. https://www.hemmings.com/magazine/hmn/2006/12/Warner-T-85-T-89-Three-Speed-Transmissions/1382444.html

C8); Fargo trucks 1929-30 K1, Freighter, 1ton; 1927-32 Reo; 1928 Reo trucks. TE9 is a female 7/8x18, 0.747-0.630 bolt taper over 15/16" with 9/16-18 ball bolt.

    The rusty tacks will have degraded the wood around them and rust will have expanded into the wood (a.k.a. "nail sickness"). If you can grab and rotate them ±180o before pulling, they should come out easily. You might find a pair of round nose pliers with cross hatch pattern on the jaws good for this. My round nose pliers are the result of breaking a pair of pointy nose pliers.

    LoL! when I first looked at this I wondered how the military would use an accessory anchor fixed to a car!

    For the OP's question on the LC, this is what the Automotive Publishing co said in 1942:

    1936 Dodge Tie Rod

    I have a 1933 Motor Specialties Replacement Parts Reference Book. There are no tie rod ends after 1930-31. What is interesting is the changeover from tie rod bolts and bushings to what they call Eccentric type and Ball type. With the eccentric, they give the "sockets" and the "inter-rods" numbers, which I think are in the series Bud gave above - probably the same manufacturer. Bud gave the 1930--31 Reo; this one gives for models 20, 25, Flying Cloud 1930-31, the socket is ES 1 and the inter-rod is ET13. I wonder if the inter-rod is the tie rod? For interest, these ES 1 ends were also used on Reo Flying cloud 1927-28 and master 6 in 1929 with inter-rod ET 3; the same config. was used on the F-G series 1.5, 2, 3 ton trucks 1928. The ES 1 ends were also on FC, FD, FA, FB, FD trucks. DUFOR don't go back this far.

    1936 Dodge Tie Rod

    Yes, I have noticed that too, especially when there are a lot of makes and models involved. The DUFOR catalogue is a fairly late one and I think they have rationalised in saying that TE11 (say) will fit all these models although small design details may not be as original. For example, the Dodge 8 ends were long with two clamping bolts. The DUFOR ones are short with one clamping bolt. Will they work? DUFOR says so but I wonder if the tie rod will need to be longer. In general, I wonder if later catalogues are as accurate as earlier ones because the market is much smaller for parts for older vehicles, meaning they might be less assiduous in their checking of the entries. With tie rod ends, I suppose the important parts are the bolt taper and the fitting thread.

    Are those wheel nuts visible? If not, would they be chromed anyway? Maybe Cadmium plated?

    A machine shop should be able to make one fairly easily. It is just a piece of heavy wall pipe with a thread in each end, albeit one of them left hand thread. They may even be able to straighten the one you have.

    V-12 or dual ignition six? Distributor cap

    Autolite made a number in this configuration, all with 1003 in their number: IGE, IGJ, IGK, IGM, IGO. (IGL 2003 is not this configuration.)

    V-12 or dual ignition six? Distributor cap

    If this is a DR cap as you say, it is the same as your other topic. Autolite made four or five in this configuration.
  22. Spinneyhill

    another V-12 or Dual ignition cap?

    I think this is what you are after: As far as my info goes, DR only made one cap with this configuration. Autolite made four or five, some of which were used on Nash cars.

    Valve adjustment

    We do have a small advantage over your DL @Taylormade, with a downdraft carburetor! But in my case, I have to work around the steering column and linkages. Of course with a warm engine, you are working around a hot exhaust.

    Wooden Wheel assembly

    You will have to show us the wheel or make sure you use the correct terminology. "split rim" means a rim that comes off the fallow and collapses to remove the tire. A locking ring rim has one edge that comes off. It sits in a groove in the side of the rim. I think this is what you mean. If you can post a clear photograph it would help us help you.
  25. Have you given a torque specification? Do they know what might be reasonable for that engine?
