    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 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
  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 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.

    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

    Hood latch Desoto 1931

    This is what i saw, maybe it could be modified but the top looks similar.
  10. 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

    1936 plymouth

    jpage, I have a 1936 Desoto and that is how mine is also set up. The pin ended bolt is meant to hold the U section in place, Peter
  15. Looking for left hand side headlight stand to suit 1936 Desoto Airstream. Have right hand side to trade if required or if someone is looking for one. Any email leads greatly appreciated. Also after the rear pinched end bumper bar to complete my ground up restoration. I have had some contact with some forum members who have these parts, but they will not sell to anyone outside America. I find it sad that I am restoring a beautiful American car in Australia and this is the brick wall. Looking for someone who has these parts and will sell to me. Thanks Peter

    1936 Desoto airstream bumpers wanted

    If you find any spare ones, I would be interested in a rear bumper bar. I have been asking the question for 12 months and had no leads. Looking for headlight stand as well. I have a few bits if you are after something. How close is your restoration. Regards Peter W
  19. Hi Scott, I forgot to mention they are the same as for my Desoto.
  20. Hi Scott, They look similar to what i have on my car. How much are you looking for them. Are they nos or been on a car. Regards Peter

    Scammer Possible

    Just heads up, I think this guy Marcus 44 is a scammer as he says he has all parts stated in advert, rather than saying he has the particular part and sends photo. I may be wrong but things are not adding up. Peter W
  22. Looking for 1936 Desoto Airstream headlight stand. Need only the LHS but happy to buy both if available. Can swap a spare RHS for LHS if required. Thanks, Peter
  23. I have been looking for a rear bumper bar for my 1936 Desoto Airstream and having no luck, I think the part number is 653843. Did the Airflow of the same year use the same bumper bars? Looking at a photo the front looks more rounded, however the rear may be the same as for the Airstream. I have been offered parts off this Airflow from a guy looking at buying it, as he only wants the engine. Not sure of year and if the rear bumper is the same. Can anyone help with part numbers or Desoto knowledge. Thanks Peter
  24. I need information on the rebuild of these shockers. There was a great article posted last year about pulling apart for repair. I don't know how to get the shaft out when you do not have the bolt holding the rocker lever to the shaft. This photo is of mine., no bolt Not sure if what appears to be a pin bellow mounting thread which has been cut off. I was thinking this needs to be drilled out?? Any clues would be appreciated, I may need to cut shaft in half to see what is going on in there.
