  10. So the conclusion is that 1936 and earlier , the thermostat was in the upper radiator hose and i 1937 they moved the thermostat between the water outlet and the cylinder head. Dennis let us know how your new thermostat fits in the radiator hose. Robert Kapteyn
  11. Brake relining

    It is important to remember that most brake shops use the new , non asbestos brake lining. This brake lining is very hard and does not work very well. You have to really exert a lot of force on the brake pedal to get the car to stop. Original asbestos lining is still available but is no longer manufactured. A good alternative is Kevlar brake lining and the Chevrolet vendors sell that. Did anybody have experience with these? http://www.tribco.com/about.php Robert Kapteyn
  12. Bernie Since you are from German ancestry ,you should know the German word for fender or mudguard " KOTFLUGEL" which would translate to feces wing. On the old open cars it was to keep the shit of the inside of the car. Maybe the American "fender" was to fend off similar substances.
