  1. I bought a new reproduction from "Andy Bernbaum Auto parts" https://www.oldmoparts.com/parts.aspx
  2. If you are going to try cutting it your self get a high quality cutter and a pair of glass work pliers. There are a few types! Try stained glass supply places. Like: https://everythingstainedglass.com/stained-glass-tools-1
  3. What a great photo! I will have to pull mine out of the garage when we get our first snowfall. Because you are right it will make a great Christmas photo!
  4. If you need some grinding of the glass lens; find someone who does or teaches stained glass. they often have the fine wet spindle grinders to do the fine fitting work. If they are like the artists here they will be happy to do it for you. These machines are table top grinders and offer a lot more control than a pedestal.
  5. I have a 1937 Dodge sedan D7. Like you I got it this year. Still getting minor things fixed but nothing minor! Not a daily driver. But every day that is sunny and dry I drive her. She can do 40 mph for ever, but can do 55 if she has to! Tough on hills but reasonable! I drive for pleasure!
  6. Thanks to all for your help! After all this sweat, looking, workarounds I found my keys! They fell into the side pocket of my wife's overnight suitcase! She was heading out for a stay at hospital so things were a little stressfull. Thanks again to all of you.
  7. does any one have a flywheel cover that will fit a 1937 Dodge D7? does anyone know if anyone makes reproduction ones?
  8. I have lost the only ignition key for my 1937 dodge D7. How do I remove the key cylinder from the switch assembly? can I jumper the 2 connections at the back of the switch to start the car in the mean time? Can I still get key blanks and can the cylinder be re-keyed? Thanks in advance!
  9. Thank you Pete! I now have another way to look at this problem. While my hands are not that shaky I am a big boy with tree stumps for fingers. 😄 I do not look forward to to trying to extract my temp gauge from the instrument cluster while under the dash! But if I have to, I have to!
  10. When cold the gauge reads ~120 F. When car is warmed up car reads 212 F. When driving 50 mph it reads just above 212F. Output of Radiator coolant into engine is 148 F Highest temperature anywhere in engine when reading with ir probe is 160 F! Heater core is warm The Low temp reading on the gauge has been offset for some time as there is a mark on the gauge face at that point. There are no kinks in the capillary tube to the gauge. What could be causing the offset. Could there have been an overheat at some point that caused ether to condense in the gauge
  11. (Face smack!) Of course. It has been an overwhelming couple of days! Thank you.
  12. There is a spring mounted lever below the carburator on the intake manifold. What does it do? When the engine is cold should it be set up so there is tension holding it up or loose letting it fall down
  13. I live in Ontario, Canada and I just brought home a new 1937 Dodge D7 4 door sedan It had a frame off restoration done in the 70's I am the 3rd owner Question 1) Is the D7 just a D5 but made in Canada? 2) Other than in the amp meter are there any fused circuits in this car Head lights don't work, interior dash and reading lights don't work front and rear running lights do work regulator was replaced recently
