  1. Ok Jack the Old Guy that Owned the car and passed on. He owns the building and has a business with office buildings closer to the road. Like you say the Grand Son got what he wanted, car gone. If you go down tualiton Sherwood hwy to where Corrugated box is turn right go over the R&R tracks, 4 Way stop. left is Cypole Road, you want to go right, two drive ways on left is the place. It is sad that the old man never got his dream. I am so happy he did not take me up on the put it to gather and get it on the road deal. Ridgefield WA to there would be quite a haul every week end.
  2. Wow this looks like the car that is in Tualitun/Sherwood. Pacific Sports Turff Building. The owner sent it to a Car Restorer. The Restorer had it for several years and sold off the high dollar Head Lights, Tail Lights and several other parts. I had offered to travel to his shop and put the car to gather if He would join the AACA Club. He said he would call me when he was ready to put it to gather or sell. I have never got a answer. It is the same car I has New/Rebuilt Engine to rear end, brake system. Frank

    69 eldo barn find

    The first thing is to get the title in your name. You have to start with the Rules. Your local Vehicle License department. Then the Local Shariff or Police Department, State Patrol will not help. Find out the Rules for your self. Do not depend on " well I was told". Once you have got that on the way. Now go to a good book store and get a copy of the Old Car Pricing Guide. Read the how to use the book part real good, maybe two times will do it is only two pages. Price your car. You will know how much you can logically sell it for or how much money you can dump into it to get it running. Here in Washington this is a 3 year 6 month wait time and at least one trip to the inspection station to verify numbers. If you sell without a title you will take big hit on what the car is worth. If you repair with out a title the real owner can take the car away from you and you will not get any of your spent money back. Get the title in your name first. Frank

    Try E Bay. I see them on there quite often. Where Are you? Nice bright Sun Shine. The rest of the States are frozen with Snow or flooded with rain and Mud. Frank

    HID Headlight Upgrade

    Greetings, CW Moss a parts seller from California sells halergon conversion with the reflector that will work with the 36 Dodge. He has 6 Volt or 12 volt. I went with the 6 volt. Now that I know what I know I would have went 12 Volt. As time goes on I will be converting to 12 Volt. Power you need power to fire off the higher amp lights. Out goes the Generator and in comes the Alternator. Yes you can hide a foreign alternator inside you Generator housing. Frank
  8. Do you have lug nuts that hold the wheel to the hub or lug bolts?? Frank

    vacuum operated windshield wiper system

    On the out side of the car is a Chrome Nut that holds the wiper motor in the car. There is a gasket that goes between the nut and the car. You will probley have to make one. Take the two trim strips off and the rear view mirror. Take all the screws out of the panel and the motor knobs. Shake wiggle and pray the panel should come off it is wedged in because it holds the head liner in place in the front. If it is stuck to the Head Liner be careful not to rip the Head Liner. use thin plastic like a toung depressor to free the Head Liner. I also got a car from a dry hot climate and every thing that was rubber was cooked. The window gaskets crumbled like little rocks. Frank

    1936 Dodge parts

    I would like a Head Light Switch Knob. How far from Portland Oregon are you?? Frank
  15. Dan Along time ago your brake shoes were 7/32 thick when new from the factory. Over time the lining wore the drums got warped and scored from the rivets or the steal shoe that holds the lining. Instead of buying new Drums you had them turned. The machinist removed material from the drum to make them round again and remove the scoring. This gave the Drum a original smooth surface for the shoes to work on BUT now the Drum size is changed and standard shoes will not get full contact with the drum any more. The person who relined your shoes would put a extra thick lining on the Shoes. Then they had a tool that would sand the new thicker shoe in the same arc as the new size break Drum. In the middle of the Shoe the lining would be 7/32 thick just like the original and the tops and bottoms would be thicker to compensate for the larger Drums. People would just take their shoes and Drums down to the parts store and say here do it how long will it take. They never knew what really was involved in a good brake job. Frank
