  1. Here is my passenger side fender for a 1936 Pontiac six. I know it was and option to have one/dual or no side mounts on the Pontiac. And I have attached a 36 Pontiac convertible. With a side mount. There has to have been some out there that were purchased.
  2. I think they were full covers but not sure
  3. I am in search of a 1936 Pontiac dual side mount covers. For my 1936 Pontiac 8. Anyone have any leads would help thanks. -Jermaine
  4. Has anyone had to preform a rear main seal replacement on a 1939 Pontiac 6 or 8 cylinder? I was looking at my 36 and it is very dry and not leaking underneath. But I have a friend that is saying his rea main seal is leaking. Thoughts?
  5. I was wondering if anyone has removed the pan from a 1936 Pontiac 8 and replaced bearings? I have a rod knock and need to replace the bearings. If anyone has done this would like to see some pictures and some instructions on what wold be the best way to go about it.
  6. Do you think the starter is staying in gauged?
  7. The 1953 Chevrolet 235 is not full oil pressure it is just like the 216. Same oiling system . Only difference is cubic inch ,side cover is small and the distributor cap is taller.
  8. For inline six motors 235 and 216 the bell housings are same only difference in 1949 Chevrolet moved from foot start to push button on the dash. Depending on what vehicle you are putting it in here are things to keep in mind. Inline six 235 motors all the way up to 54 have the water pump in the same location as a 216. When you go to 55-62 the water pump is lower and can cause over heating and or will not fit in the vehicle unless you run an electric fan. For best fitment 54 235 is the best motor to get and run. Other things to keep in mind gas pedal rod on 235 is in a similar location
  9. Here is a video so everyone can hear the sound. Oil pressure stays at 40 I did and oil change and sound is still there 1936 Pontiac
  10. After reading the shop manual it says intake .009 exhaust .011 while engine is at normal operating tempreature.
  11. Cool thanks for the advice. I am gonna order the gaskets and pull the covers off. I am guessing it is best to remove the access panel on the fender also so it is a little easier to service ?
  12. Is this something that is common when a motor has been sitting for a long time and out side that the lifters could be stuck ?
  13. After changing the oil . I dont think it is a spun bearing . I think it is a lifter issue. Is there any videos out there regarding the repair of the lifters in these 8 motors? I am dreading taking the side covers off but if I have too I will so I van see which one it is .
  14. OK here is what I did I first used a 12 volt battery to crank the motor to UDC once I was able to see the mark on the flywheel I then re positioned the wires on the cap. Then the car fired right up. Unfortunately I think I have a rod knock. Oil pressure shows at 40 psi. I was thinking about doing an oil change and see what happens. Anyone have any other suggestions ? Also other thing I did for the motor to spin properly. I cleaned the ground that goes from the frame to the bell housing. Then I replaced the battery ground cable with a 2 gauge wire .
  15. Any one have the shop manual for the 1936 Pontiac 8 firing order?
