    1936 Dodge

    Thanks Steve, very keen. I would need them to go to the exporter i use. Would pay for potage and package. Could you check overall length again. Peter

    1936 How to undo Dodge Desoto Horn trumpet

    Thanks, i will try the soaking. I had undone the nut and i was not prepared to twist too much. I am making 2 out of 3 i have. I have rotated the inside part by undoing bolts so that where it attaches to the horn bracket on gaurd support it is correct. Just another quick question what size are the bolts holding horn bracket to guard bracket looking at existing holes the bolts may be an over design. I may post photo so we are on the same page, Peter.
  4. Is there a trick on getting the trumpet to unscrew out of horn. I have seen a few where people attempt this and twist the hell out of the trumpet. I am re-building and need to flip it around half a turn so it faces the vent grill. Mine looks to have white stuff in the thread which may be some kind of lock tight goo used back in the day not sure. Any help or pics greatly appreciated.

    1936 Headlight spring clip layout

    Looking for a photo of the spring / clip layout for a 1936 Desoto bucket. I have a few flat clips and ones with springs and not sure what the layout is. Is there an easy way to clean them up for re-use. Thanks Peter

    Wiring Loom Manufacture

    Looking at getting a wiring loom made for my 1936 Desoto. Have done the search on the internet and came up with Harness Unlimited, YNZ Yesterdays Parts and Narragansett Reproductions (Rhode Island) there are probably more which I don't even know about.. Can anyone give me their experiences with theirs being made and possibly steer me towards the one with the least pain and most original. On another note I picked up a boxed NOS wiring loom made by REMAX and it has 1937-38 Dodge on the side. Would this suit my purpose or would lengths course more grief than it is worth and best to get one specific to my Desoto and on sell this to a Dodge owner. Peter
  7. Why not have them re-sleeved, I had my Desoto;s stepped rear cylinders sleeved with stainless steel and now will not have to touch them again. You have the brake cylinder, saves grief of trying to find replacement. Peter

    1936 plymouth

    I have a 1936 Desoto which I am rebuilding the brakes, all apart as part of restoration. Do you want a photo of the brass connector which has the Y section to hold in place and hole for bango bolt ? These were only used on the front or rear, will have to check for you. If this is correct I will get a couple for you and send through. Peter

  12. I am looking to get someone to re-manufacture running board matting for my Airstream Desoto. A guy in Canada said he can do them. I was mainly looking for recommendations by members who have had them made and happy with the final product. Also what is a good glue, I was hearing windscreen glue does the job ??? Peter
