  1. Does anyone have a picture of their battery tray, old or restored? I want to fabricate a copy of the originally designed battery tray. Thanks, in advance, for your time and effort!! I've searched the web for '37 battery tray pix to no avail. I guess being the battery rests under the floor few people would show that view.

    Shift lever spring -37 Special

    There is a shift lever spring on Ebay right now. It's very similar to, I think, as the one for my '37 Pontiac 6, at least the end of the shift lever looks identical to mine. You may have to open up the end cap to a round hole but that wouldn't be too hard to do. You could always ask the seller for the springs i.d. and length to be sure it would work. Just a thought. https://www.ebay.com/itm/GM-1935-1936-Pontiac-Shift-Lever-Spring-Cup-NOS-Part-553573/142956993477?hash=item2148e69bc5:g:-skAAOSw6oBXFFJ9:sc:USPSFirstClass!55122!US!-1:rk:12:pf:0&vxp=mtr
  3. Thanks, Bloo! After what you said I took another look at the supporting frame of the battery box under the bent over top flaps and it does, like you said, have two slots. I hadn't noticed that before. There are two slots on both front and rear sides of the supporting frame. There are no places on the supporting frames that show any previous rivet locations or would indicate previous rivets by means of holes. I really wish someone would photograph their original '37 battery box so I could duplicate it. Guess I can always hope! Thanks again for responding!
  4. I've got my grandfather's 37 Pontiac 6 Touring Sedan, which is almost totally original, I'm working on. I was wondering if this is the original battery box. The box looks rather crude to be an original. The bent over flaps on the top looks like someone used a cutting torch to cut it out which makes me wonder if it's original. Can someone tell me or show me a picture of what the original box looks like? It doesn't look to me like a factory produced battery box that would come with a finished car. I'd appreciate any help! Sorry about the partial pix I've included. I took them a few years ago before I started a semi-restoration.

    37 Pontiac front brake line routing?

    John, I found it on the car! Ha! Just joking. As I said earlier the car is all original. The junction is the original junction that came on the '37 Pontiacs. All I did was take it off and sandblast it to clean it up. There is a guy I think he's in Missouri but I can't remember that has a lot of Pontiacs that probably would have that part but I can't remember his name right now. I'll have to check my records at home (I'm at the local library right now) and add that info tomorrow. Paul OK, just remembered him without going home. He told me he has a lot of NOS parts for Pontiacs. Give him a call. KURT KELSEY Phone # 641-648-9086 email is kelsey@prairieinet.com.

    37 Pontiac front brake line routing?

    Hi jdshott, Sorry I'm a little slow with responding but I have to come to the library to post. I did my front brakes about a year ago on my grandpa's '37 Pontiac Deluxe 6 Touring Sedan. Here are some of the pix I took. The first two are before I started to replace the steel lines which are all original. Actually the entire vehicle is original, grandpa was a stickler for leaving it in the garage if it was raining. I decided to bypass replacing the old steel lines and went with copper-nickle lines instead. Glad I did cuz it's a whole lot easier bending copper lines to match the old steel ones. The brass junction you are concerned with can be seen in the pix quite well if you zoom in. I think the junction you found on Ebay should work with a little modification if you don't mind drilling a new hole to mount it. Maybe the junction can be swivelled with a little work so you can use the original chassis hole. Might be worth a try. Anyway, I hope these pix help. Kookie1
  7. Tom, personal message backatcha! Paul
  8. Hey Tom, that's an idea. I would not have guessed the bell housing hole would still be the same size five years later. Thanks for looking into G-pa's boxes. Would you be interested in letting it go? I still need both arms and legs thou! Ha! Ha! Paul
  9. HaHaHa!!! OK, thanks for the thought, but I guess I'll have to wait until they figure out how to print foam rubber in a 3-D printer!! I won't be holding my breath. I thought for sure Steele Rubber would have already been making them but I guess I'm mistaken. Anyway, thanks for responding, PP, you have a great week!
  10. I see. I imagine with all the fine cracks that yours is original. Do you know if anyone makes a reproduction of it? I've looked at Steele Rubber, California Pontiac, Kanter etc. but can't seem to locate any.
  11. Hey, PP you found a hole cover!! U da man!! I never thought I'd see an actual '37 hole cover. Where did you find one? Is that a metal grab flap on top or maybe it's a grab strap to pull it out of the hole. It's hard to tell from the picture. Now that I think about it, I assume the hollow portion with the raised ridge goes on the inside to hold it in place, right? So what sticks out of the hole when it's plugged is the grab strap or whatever you call it. I'm just guessing here as you probably gathered. Thanks for the photos PP!
  12. Just thought I'd say I've eventually figured out, after further cleaning the heads of what I thought were not heads at all, that they're actually screw heads with a slot....DUH!! I just wish someone would have said, "Hey, bozo, try a screwdriver in the bolt slot, that usually works for me!!" Ha! Guess I should have done a better cleaning job before asking for help. Anyway, I'm now further into doing my own clutch yoke release boot. Thanks again to all who took the time to help!
  13. Thanks for the file, hwellens, it does answer some of my questions. One being does any pump have numbers starting with a "9". Apparently they do. At first I thought my grandpa's car was original just because of how he used it and kept it. But I guess he must have had some problems since it has a 1949-52 WA-1 carburetor which was not original. Now I'm thinking he may have had the fuel pump replaced as well. Anyway, thanks for the response. I hear ya, PetePontiac-1, but I never was a big fan of clubs. I'm kind of a loner and DIY-er. I've talked with Kurt before on other matters and he seems to be a helpful guy and a great resource. Thanks for all the details too!
  14. I want to order a fuel pump kit and to do that I need the pump number. I can't figure out what this number is. I haven't taken the pump off the car yet and can't read the number from above so I shoved my camera down low and took some photos of the flange number, after cleaning off with a wire brush of course. The pump is on my 1937 Pontiac 6 Deluxe Touring Sedan, 223 engine, std transmission. It's a dual diaphragm unit with slotted screws. Here are five of those pix I took. It looks like it's 9242 or 9342, possibly 32-12 or 93-12 by looking at the second digit near the bottom of the stamped digit. Suppose it could be 92-12 or 32-42 but I don't know of any fuel pump stamping with a dash like that so I'm guessing it's a number 4. The first number looks like a 9 but I haven't seen any kits starting with a 9 for an AC pump. Kind of a sloppy stamping as you can see which makes it tough to read. Can anyone tell me, with any certainty, what these number are. Thanks, in advance!
  15. Well, I took the whole thing out of the car, coil, cable and lock. It's sitting on the work bench and I still have no idea how to get the coil off it's cap. Chewed up my hand trying to use a feeler gauge and I've finally given up with the feeler gauge idea. It's obviously not going to work. I can't believe no one has a picture of the inside of the cap and coil laying around. Surely I'm not the first person with this problem. Does anyone have a picture of the inside of the coil cap? I'd settle for a picture or a drawing or even a drawing of the special tool. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated too!!
