    I will give Andy B a call to see if they carry these rubber pieces.

     

    I have another dilemma now.  I took my keyed exterior handle and ignition to two different local locksmiths and neither one had the know how to rekey these.  Does anyone know of a locksmith in the Houston area that could handle this?  What have other's done in order to get the keyed handle usable so they can lock up the car? 

    Already been there,,,,has to be someone, somewhere

    “ New” 1936 Dodge/ Plymouth roof seals are “ Here”!!! If you have been looking for a roof seal that fits the “ Turret tops” ( Metal insert )  and have tried steel and many of the others and find they just don’t fit/ work, here is one that does! limited” supply, Get your Now, update”””. Any Canadian orders will be higher shipping costs, US only applies to $20/26 shipping,  it just costs me $65 to ship a seal to Canada, so please let me know where seal is going in advance, Thank you,

    I wish those existed back in the 1990s when I did mine. Or perhaps I should say, I wish I'd known about a source for them when I did mine back in the 1990s.

     

    Anyway, I was lucky and able to reuse the originals.

    No one has them That’s why I reproduced them, in 2019

    I'm pretty sure it's weak/no spark.  My father was a diesel mechanic and I've rebuilt a few engines, so I'm not 100% illiterate.   It was running last year, although getting harder to start after sitting for a while.  I hit it with the starting fluid, but it has not fired one time.  Coil has 6V in.  Getting some spark at plug after cleaning everything.  Spark plugs were pretty grimy, so sand-blasted.  The plug wires are pretty loosey-goosey, as with most other connections, so even if that is not 100% my current issue, I want to replace all and start fresh.  The point actually look pretty good and the gap was correct, but I hit with file just to be sure.  Not sure how to test a condenser.  Anyways, I'm not poor, and don't mind the parts swap, so I think that's where I want to start.

    Maybe just a cap

    Revert to last Sunday my friend when I asked the question regarding frames on this thread which has been dormant for a year? I then get responses and you jump in to purchase ahead of me. Not fair play and certainly not in the spirit of these forums. 

    Didn’t see your post, all yours,

    Sorry I did mine in the 70s and they are still holding together sorry no pictures. I do have a set of frames from a 4 door model and haven`t taken them apart... they are restorable but not realy useable as is.

    Any parts usable? Do you have a picture? Thanks

    There is a piece in the window frame that is made out of potmetal and that is the part that breaks down and makes the lever non functioning. I rescued mine by gently remoing the pot metal piece and gave it a nice coating and filling with Epoxy glue and they have lasted 30 years since I did it.... FYI

    I m redoing mine ( 34 Dodge, please send picture of pot metal, Maybe I should take care of that problem while I’m at it, Thanks

    I ended up purchasing a new switch and cleaning all the connections up to the lights.  I am now getting around 5.5 volts to the bulbs now.  When I have some more time I plan on replacing the butt splice connectors that are inline and chasing down the ground points.  

     

    With the new switch the parking lights are now working.  It appears that the original switch was not making contact to that connection point, could have been that area that was bulging in the middle.  All lights are much brighter at this point but I will still work on the headlights to improve those.

     

    Ply33, I did contact the place you purchased your lights from and they only offer led lights for our bulbs.  Due to a supply shortage they are currently out of stock on the led lights but should have some in the next couple of months.  I plan to purchase these when in stock and I'll update this with the results.

     

    A side question, has anyone installed a discrete brake light (what would be called a 3rd brake light now) that doesn't detract from the original look of the car?  With distracted drivers now, I'm not sure I trust them to see the single rear lamp.  Was thinking it could go in the rear windows or I could attach it to the spare tire cover in some way.

    I mounted a rear / 3rd break light in the rear window , of the 36 I streetrodded,  think it was out of. 80s Cadillac, worked out well paint it dark for less of a “ stick out” factor, but that had 12 volt system also,,,,
