  1. With my bad luck it figures that the tube is bad! Besides welding the ends shut does anyone have any other suggestions? And like I mentioned before it does not have the stock carburator, the previous owner replaced it with a Eldelbrock carb.
  2. I think you are correct because before I disassemble it I could feel air leaking and that is why I asked if there was a way to cap it. I will put it under pressure and see if it's leaking. Thanks!
  3. Thanks for the information. When I purchased the car the previous owner had replaced the original carb with a Eldelbrock, I don't like it I am already searching for a Rochester.
  4. Thanks for the lesson, the shop manual doesn't show much. Again thank you!!!
  5. So I have an exhaust leak on the passenger side and I found a nipple on the manifold that is open, can someone please tell me what it's used for and is there a way to cap it? Thanks in advance!!
  6. Thank you, I will look into it!! Unfortunately it's my daily driver and it started to run rough today after a hard stop, so I think the easiest thing to do first is replace the fuel filter. Since the local parts stores in my area does not stock the original style I wanted to know if the universal style would work by eliminating the vapor return line.
  7. Thank you!!! I thought that it could be eliminated but wasn't 100% sure.
  8. Time to replace my fuel filter but I noticed that the original filter has three hoses. I know that one is from the pump and the other goes to the carb but what is the third one for? Can I eliminate the third line and use a universal 2 hose style filter? Thanks in advance, Marco
  9. Thanks Mr. Page! It's a complete set that also includes the tire cover.
  10. Thanks! It does come with all the hardware and the tire cover.
  11. Thank you! I guess what I should do is measure my fender first, the only problem is the car is about 100 miles away being restored.
  12. I have a opportunity to pick up a passenger side mount fender but before I spend the money I want to make sure that it will fit my 36 4 door sedan. Can anyone tell me if the fenders are universal through all 1936 Dodge models excluding pickups? I was informed that on Buicks the fenders are different lengths depending on the model and after hearing that I am concerned that it might be the same on the Dodge cars. Thanks, Marco
  13. Thanks and sorry for the late reply. I already tried your suggestion but it still doesn't go all the way up! I might have to take it to the shop if I can't figure this out.
  14. Does anyone know what can cause a rear electric window not to shut all the way? It was working fine before. The window goes down and back up to that point with no problems. I would appreciate any help. Regards, Marco
  15. Mr. Page, I assembled the parts I had on pic one by looking at pics that I took before taking it apart and everything looked good until I found the thin piece that is on pic two. If that is a spring tensioner and their is supposed to be two I guess I am missing one. As always thanks for your help!!! Marco
  16. Hello, I need help identifying parts that I removed about 17 years ago. I will post parts as I find that I don't where they go. The first part is part of the throttle linkage bracket but I don't know what side it goes on. The part is very thin maybe about 1/16" thick. Thanks, Marco
  17. Yes I did keep the original drive train. I struggled for a while with the brake and clutch assembly, everyone I talked to said to go modern but like I said before I want the car to have the appearance of it being original as possible. So I came up with this idea.
  18. This is the modified steering column using a steering column saver and the new u-joint at the end. The u-joint still needs to be welded on but I have to first cut the shaft down by about 4". I will then powdercoat the column and finish restoring the steering wheel. If anyone is wondering how much I cut off the Steering Column it was close to a foot.
  19. Taylormade, This is a mid 30's car which is different than your 48 Plymouth. Another thing is that you guys didn't know that I have a Mustang II front suspension with rack and pinion and it's air bagged. The reason I don't much talk about this is that I want the car to look as original as possible with the exception of the front and rear suspension and some people won't bother helping when they find out that your car has been modified. I had to modify the original steering column also so that it attaches to the rack and pinion steering. What I want is when someone looks at the car they will never notice any modifications except for the car sitting low. I will post some pics of some of the mods later but I will post a pic of the column even though I'm not completely done with it. Before I forget I was not offended at all by your comment, but you did sound like I wasn't listening to your idea! Hahaha.....
  20. I want to thank everyone for their advice! They are all good ideas and now that I know that no one reproduces what was originally installed I will try one of your ideas.
  21. Gunsmoke, Thanks for the pics. On the 36 it is smooth so I guess since no one reproduces what originally was installed I will try what other members have suggested. Regards, Marco
