  1. Str8-8-Dave, Did your manual give a reason why metal body shims should not be used? My reproduction 1934 Fisher Body Service Manual does not mention that at all. It just mentions body shims. It says very little about aligning doors. Is your manual specific to 31's? reded
  2. Thank you to the three of you for your input. reded
  3. Is there a special procedure or "trick" to aligning the doors on my 1934 model 46 other than trial and error using body shims?
  4. n These two photos are of the muffler and hanger on my 1934 #46. The supporting bracket is riveted to the frame's crossmember and the "L" shaped hanger and assembly are bolted to it. There is a 1.25 inch wide strap that goes around the muffler and the bottom leg of the "L." There is a rubber "cushion" on the "L" hanger assembly that I believe might be to give flexibility and reduce vibrations. I hope this helps.
  5. Thanks for your above input. I just got off the phone with Eddie at Steele who says he has been in the business for 39 years. He said he has only seen one beaded windshield weatherstrip. He went on to say they have never made beaded weatherstrip and wished me luck. He suggested carefully slitting new weatherstrip and inserting the bead from my old weatherstrip. I'm thinking about plan "B." I'm open to suggestions.
  6. I'm restoring my 1934, 40 series. Does anyone know of someone who produces the front windshield weatherstrip with the chromed/stainless steel reveal molding/bead? None of the major suppliers seem to produce it. The bead in my original weatherstrip appears to have been imbedded in the weatherstrip when the strip was created. I could probably get mine our but then how do you reinstall it and into what pattern of weatherstrip.
  7. My 1934 model 46 has spring covers. The 1934 manual says they are furnished. I have original brochures that say they were an option. I would assume 1935 was similar. Pages 81 - 84 of the 1934 Shop Manual explains how to take them off and reinstall them. It suggest that when replacing the covers new ones be used as the old ones will become too damaged when taking them off. Mine were in very good condition and I was able to take them off regrease the springs and put the covers back on. I had to be extremely careful and it was not an easy task. I had to make a spring loading machine as pictured on page 82 of the manual. My suggestion is; unless you have a set of NOS or really good used ones leave them off. I do not feel they are really necessary. By the way, if anyone needs a spring loading machine like that pictured in the manual let me know.
  8. Hello Ray, My 233 CI has an after market filter from the 40's. It is attached to the breather tube. The oil flows into the engine near the front and top of the head as you can see from the pictures. The older gentleman working for the company that rebuilt the engine had worked on them in the past. He said there was a small screen at that inlet point and that it should be removed if a filter was added. I hope the pictures help.
  9. Thanks for the picture Jim. Is your canister made by the Winslow Engineering Co. Imprinted on the lid of my canister are the words: WINSLOW ENGINEERING CO - - OAKLAND. CALIF. USE No 5-C OIL CONDITIONING ELEMENT.
  10. My 34 Buick's 233 engine has an after market oil filter canister. It is a Winslow Oil Conditioner # 5-C. It was produced by the Winslow Engineering Company of Oakland, California and patented in the early 1940"s. Does anyone know what color it was painted? I have researched and found Winslow Oil Conditioners in light green, gray, and light blue, but they are all used in aircraft.
  11. I have a 1934 #46. The original piece on my car like you describe is chromed along with the securing nut.
  12. Greg, A fender welt/weather strip is attached by the rivets. I have enclosed a picture of it on my running board before I removed it. Unfortunately age has taken its toll. I have laid a broken piece on the running board mat. The bead is a 3/8 inch tube that appears to be made out of rubber. It must have been used as some kind of compressible weather strip/welt.
  13. Dear Pete, Your picture is of a water jacket cover. The water jacket cover for my 1934, 40 series 233 motor measures 27 and 1/4 X 3 and 7/8 inches.
  14. The curved end goes to the front, pointed to the rear. That was the orientation of my originals when I took them of to repair.
