Seeking 1936 Dodge crank hole cover and....

Recommended Posts

Anyone know any resources to find a crank hole cover that isn't a hostage level price?  Original, NOS, or Repro.  

Also looking for an interior bench seat and a wheel well bracket that connects rear fender to frame.  Thanks all!

Be prepared to pay at least $500 for a decent one and maybe $1000 or more for a really nice rechromed one. Getting very hard to find. Good hunting! If you do find one, make sure all the parts are there, like the retainer spring and both retainer pins. Broken ones can be fixed if all the pieces are there but at a price! alot of grille parts that show up on Ebay are really beaten up or are old aftermarket and the prices are rediculous!

Good to know...thanks for the tips!!  I thought they just screwed in....didn't know there are springs and pins!  Yeah, not looking for a new one to be machined (way to $$$)...just hoping to find an old one on a salvage truck that I could jerry rig into place.  Thanks again, jpage!

I believe that the cars and trucks are the same and also fit '37 Dodge trucks. There is a spring type retainer riveted to the top of the cover and they just pop into place. Always a good idea to secure it with a small wire tie so it doesn't fall out.

jpage is right

DO NOT trust the original mounting, the right bump in the road will dislodge it.

A set of rail road tracks took mine and the guy behind me ran it over.

I used some small zip ties when I finally found one. (several zip ties just to make me feel better)
