  1. We found a reference which states that the waterpump is supposed to be lubricated with 10W motor oil ? Is this correct......and if so where do you add the 10W motor oil ? We can't find a filler plug for this purpose...if in fact this is the right way to lubricate a 248 1937 waterpump ?? Jack Worstell jlwmaster@aol.com

    Delco Lever Action Shocks

    I have seen several recommendations saying that motorcycle fork oil will work well in these shocks. But what weight ? 10 wt ? 20 wt ? 30 wt ? Jack Worstell jlwmaster@aol.com

    Alternator Regultor Schematic

    The CS 121 that I have started out as a 12V negative ground unit. The diodes and regulator were changed to get 6V and positive ground. But I'm pretty sure the stator and rotor were not changed...........and if they could run ( originally ) at 12V why now could they not run at 8V ? We have switched our 1937 Buick to 8V ( a converted 10Si alternator ) and it works fine ( the CS 121 is for another car which physically cannot accept a 10SI except with great difficulty ) . Yes down the road switching to 8V might eventually add some deterioration to various electrical components.....but no more than we run these cars this will not happen anytime some. And when it does....we'll fix it. In the meantime the benefits ( to us ) are worth this extra risk. We are aware of all of the pros and cons associated with various electrical modifications. In this instance a 8V positive ground CS 121 is the best compromise ( if we can solve the regulator problem ) we feel for the particular issue at hand. Jack Worstell

    Alternator Regultor Schematic

    I'm looking for a generic schematic for a regulator for an alternator. One that can be adapted for 6V or 8V or 12V. Adjustable within a narrow range in each instance. Also with schematic changes either positive ground or negative ground.can be had. No doubt the regulator would have to be mounted externally. ( and I know that switching polarity also means something has to be done about the diodes ) My immediate need is to convert a CS 121 unit ( 6V positive ground ) to 8V positive ground.

    1937 Special Hot Differential/Rear Wheels

    Hmmmm When I say about a pint...I didn't actually measure it.......just "eyeballed" the physical size of the differential and noted that the drain plug was at the six o'clock location on the back cover. Now I wonder if the back cover should be rotated such that the drain plug would be.say. at the nine o'clock position. ? I would guess that this might give me maybe three pints ? The car and the shop manual are at the shop so checking this out will have to wait until Monday or Tuesday. Thanks for the tips Jack Worstell

    1937 Special Hot Differential/Rear Wheels

    Yes...checked the fluid level ( and I noted that the way the differential is made and the location of the fill plug....that the capacity is probably no more than one pint....not very much...I would have thought it would have been more capacity ? ) Jack
  11. Lately we have taken several 30-40 mile drives in our 1937 Special. It has a "Lloyd Young" overdrive that makes it a real treat to drive. We have noticed after these drives that the differential case and the two rear wheels are hot. I can lay my hands on them...but just barely. At first we thought the rear brakes were dragging but we checked this out and it is not the case. Ideas ? Jack Worstell jlwmaster@aol.com
